The past couple of weeks I have dealt with some conflicts with others either not meeting what they say they are going to do or doing the complete opposite of what they say. It has caused friendships to be lost and I have stopped doing business with some because of it. This type of behavior is unacceptable for me. Positive or negative, no matter what you do, just own it!
We all make mistakes from time to time. It happens. Own up to it, learn from it, and move on. It is not the mistakes you make but your reactions from the mistake that defines who you are. If the Wright Brothers quit after their first failed flight, we might not have airplanes today. The world might be a whole lot different if Bill Gates or Steve Jobs gave up. If they did not back down why should you? Successful people are successful because it is not that they do not fail but they know what to do when they fail.
Own your words. Own them all of the time. If you say you are going to do something, do it. Hold yourself more accountable than you hold anyone else. Do not pass the buck when it is your fault. It will only come back harder on you. If you have to change what you do from what you said, admit it. Admit it before it is an issue. Do not wait for the other person to catch you. That is why a few have lost a customer in me. Stand by your word.
When you rock a presentation, be proud. When you fall on the ice, stand up and take a bow. Always show your best side.No one can do you better than you. Dr. Seuss was correct when he said; “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” You got this!
Whatever you do, whenever you are done, drop the mic and walk out. You are a rockstar.
