I have written several stories about these people, the people who unintentionally give us perspective, the people who sometimes remind us of what we could become if we’re not careful, the people who make some of us look really good… I am talking about the Losers. Read about them here.
I write about them whenever I encounter situations that painfully remind me of why I need to be careful, why I always remind as many people as I can of the warning signs when we’re closely wobbling that fine line. Because without staying conscious of it, it’s dangerously very easy to fall into that mindset. YES – it’s a mindset. It’s not some innate talent to think of all the barriers, the challenges and how the world owes you a favor and how you’ve never done anything wrong and are always the victim.
Today I write about the people who rise above all the BS (the Bad Stuff) and just continues to get it done. This post is for you ladies and gents who I am proud to call peers. Who I am extremely honored to work alongside with. This is for you who in spite of having your own problems and challenges just like everyone else, choose to focus on things that you can control, ask for help for those that you can’t and choose to stay positive. To the past and recent awardees of the Blue Diamond Club, especially those whom I directly work with; Angel, Carlo, Ely, Fred, Joy, Ryan, and the rest who joined the ranks of less than 170 people in a company of 40,000. I am proud to know and work with you.
To the people who get sent out of the country for an all-expense paid trip and visit their respective Client Headquarters for being TOP performers and innovators: Honelyn, John Kenneth, Donabel, Allie Jane, Lennie, Sol, Serida, Karl. May you continue to be a source of inspiration for your peers and progressively challenge and move us forward.
