It Reminds Me…

It helps to have cheerful and optimistic young people with the right attitude in a team. I believe many leaders also agree with me.

When we sum up Attitude, it reaches to 100. Try to sum up Smart, Intelligent, etc. They will not reach 100. And it’s also true in work and in life. I found many smart and intelligent people with mediocre working drive. They can learn quickly, they even can “wow” you about theories. But, wait until they are in the real working situation when things are not going where they suppose to be… they would give up easily and would find excuses for the difficult set-target lie ahead.

When I was starting to work even when I was still studying in university, I never gave in to any difficult challenge. The more challenging it is the more drive I have to counter the challenge.

I remember during the monetary crisis when revenue dropped significantly, my former boss said that we might never hit our sales target – especially after several big accounts were taken from our team. I told her that we would hit our target. I didn’t know how. But deep down I believed that we could do it as a team. My team at that time was never in bad mood although under a very stressful situation – we laughed all the time, we had “happy hour” after 5PM, but we worked very hard.

By end of fiscal year… we were not only hitting our sales target but achieved much more and were able to “rescue” other under-achieved unit.

I have a belief that you are your own worst enemy. If you want to succeed you need to conquer yourself. You are the one who decides whether you’re going to make it or break it! Even the sky is not your limit.

So, when I look at two of the youngest members in my team now, I see myself when I was around their age. I hope they can maintain their cheerful and optimistic drives. They will excel beyond any expectation only if they allow themselves to answer the challenge with the right attitude.
