In our last blog, we discussed the role of role playing – practicing to be perfect, professionally and personally.
Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S., we want to ask you a question:
What kind of ‘tater are you?
Spectator – These people sit on the sideline, never getting in the game. They just sit and watch you do all the work.
Hesitator – These are people who talk about their ideas and dreams, but never do anything to reach them.
Commentator – People who find fault with the people playing the game. Never get in the game. Never take risk. Never fail forward. Never succeed.
Imitator – These people are so unhappy with themselves, they have to pretend to be something they’re not.
Dictator – Bossy people. They’re not confident that they can sell others on their ideas, so they have to try to bully them.
Agitator – Perhaps the worst of all. These people like to stir things up. They’re only happy when they’re unhappy. They try to unite people as a negative force.
Facilitator – These people are always looking for a solution. They bring out the best in others by making work easier.
Sweet ‘tater – These humble, likeable, nice people will do just about anything for anyone. They genuinely like people. The get respect because they treat people with respect.
We challenge you to be a facilitator and a sweet ‘tater. Our quote today is by John Cassis, the former baseball player who became a motivational speaker.
“It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”
Nice is a nice way to be. Tomorrow, we’ll put the “thanks” in Thanksgiving. Until then, here’s to your bigg success!
