To Secure Advancement

Friday, March 20, 2009

Do all the work you can do, every day, and do each piece of work in a perfectly successful manner; put the power of success, and the purpose to get rich, into everything that you do.

But do not do this merely with the idea of currying favor with your employer, in the hope that he, or those above you, will see your good work and advance you; it is not likely that they will do so.

The man who is merely a "good" workman, filling his place to the very best of his ability, and satisfied with that, is valuable to his employer; and it is not to the employer's interest to promote him; he is worth more where he is.

To secure advancement, something more is necessary than to be too large for your place.

The man who is certain to advance is the one who is too big for his place, and who has a clear concept of what he wants to be; who knows that he can become what he wants to be, and who is determined to BE what he wants to be.

Do not try to more than fill your present place with a view to pleasing your employer; do it with the idea of advancing yourself. Hold the faith and purpose of increase during work hours, after work hours, and before work hours. Hold it in such a way that every person who comes in contact with you, whether foreman, fellow workman, or social acquaintance, will feel the power of purpose radiating from you; so that every one will get the sense of advancement and increase from you. Men will be attracted to you, and if there is no possibility for advancement in your present job, you will very soon see an opportunity to take another job.

Are you doing all that you can do?
Or do you get discouraged because you don't like your job?
Is it possible to do all that you can do when you are working at a job that doesn't suit you, or with people who don't appreciate you?

I love this one. I was starting to feel a little bit cranky about what he was saying on the subject of successful and efficient action at work and how it would help you to advance. I've seen too many people who put their "all" into their work, and the best that happened to them was if they got a small raise at the end of the year... so I was having issues with it.

But I think he has explained it perfectly - and I especially love the part that is in bold print. It really sums up the "how to."
