You didn’t reach your level of professional success by accident. You’ve put in the hours. Brought your best to the table every single day. And you’ve reaped the rewards of hard work and effective leadership.
If you’re like most of the top performers who I work with, you’ve followed a syllabus for success at every stage of your life. In high school, you did your best in to keep your grades high, while also engaging in extracurricular activities that would help you get into a top college.
You repeated that in college with hopes of landing a great job, or starting a thriving business, as quickly as possible.
And, at work, you’ve established yourself as the "Go-To" person among your associates. You’re the person that people rely on to solve problems and keep the company on track.
In other words, you’ve become the person that your peers and associates think you SHOULD BE.
