Wisdom: Get on Your feet

Wisdom Get on Your feet - Pathmaker Blog“Getting on your feet starts by getting off your butt!”

Here’s an intriguing rhetorical question: “How many get rich quick schemes have you participated in?” Now, this runs the gamut from Lottery Tickets to Publisher’s Clearing House to Real Estate programs to running actual con games! The thing is, the reality of life is the only way we can expect to be successful is through hard work, diligence, and keeping an eye on the prize! When you take the fact that much of our populace lives in a fairy tale land where there is a chance to live happily ever after because of our Fairy God Mother or a genie who grants lots of wishes, and compound that with the fact that we now have a generation or two who believes in entitlement, and you have the basis for a segment of society who has probably never been told “Getting on your feet starts by getting off your butt!”

So, what does that mean to the business world? It means we are left with the task of teaching young people – and some not so young people – that the key to success is hard work, diligence, and keeping an eye on the prize. We need to teach them that they need to establish goals, and plot a course of action that will help them realize those goals. We need to teach them that no one is going to do it for them, they have got to do it for themselves. We have to show them how rewarding accomplishment through hard work, diligence, and keeping an eye on the prize can be. We have to allow them to learn the truth of the statement, “the harder I work the luckier I become.” Then, and only then, will they understand and accept that “Getting on your feet starts by getting off your butt!”
