Have you ever been around a work colleague that sucks the life out of the environment? Instead of looking for ways to bring value to the work place, they show up with the attitude of ‘What can you do for me?’
That’s the problem with 98% of employees! They are looking for what they can get out of their company or their job – a pay check, promotion, benefits, a big year-end bonus. I’m sure you’ve heard that it’s better to give than to receive, it’s not just a nice saying, it applies to you here and now.
So what does it look like? How do you contribute to your work environment? It’s very simple, most people would never think to do it…
Become and advocate, this is someone who defends, supports and promotes the interest of others.
Advocates are rare, and have extremely high value in the marketplace. And why? Because they continuously feed positive energy into their environment. They encourage and edify, they invest their hearts and souls into the company. They consistently look for opportunities to enrich the people around them. They protect the integrity of the company and the reputation of the leaders.
We desperately need more advocates in this world today. We need people who will push each other towards their goals and pull the best out of each other.
Another great way to become an advocate is to share good, useful information with your friends, family and co-workers. Just imagine if everyone in your company and community understood the value of an advocate! Imagine how much more your company would accomplish if everyone stepped up and decided to enhance their environment instead of just taking away from it!
This one simple secret could take you from where you are now to BIG promotions.
