The Three Happens

02 Jul

In my 29 years of retail experience…and in coaching…literally…thousands of individuals…

I have come to notice… an individual will fall into one of three categories… of happens…

And that is H-A-P-P-E-N-S…happens…

A person will either…MAKE things happen…

Or they will…WATCH things happen…

Or…they will look around and ask…WHAT HAPPENED???

Now obviously…there is a clear and distinct difference… between all three types of these individuals…

Why is it that some people make things happen…while others watch things happen…and some still can’t figure out what happened??

I believe it comes down to… how much a person genuinely… cares…

Cares about their career…

Cares about their families…

Cares about their lives…

Cares about how they are perceived…

You see…you can’t teach…coach or train…caring… in an individual…it pours out of them naturally…

It comes from a strong upbringing…and parents that have taught them values…and morals…

It is the one trait that I look for…whenever I am interviewing someone for a position…

Because…if the individual cares…

They will care about their careers…and be diligent in their quest to become better at their jobs…

They will put in the time and hard work…it takes… to advance their careers…

They will always arrive on time…and work the extra hours if needed…

They want to be a valued member of the team…

And if the individual cares about their family…they will always want to provide the very best they can for their families…

They will care about providing a nice home…

They will care about providing…clothing…food…and fun for their families…

They will want the best for their families…and always try to exceed their family’s expectations…

They will care about their lives…their quality of life…going on nice vacations…always having nice things…quality things…things you have to work hard for…

Caring about another human being…and then reaching out to lend a hand to another human…if needed…

You see…the people that MAKE things happen…are the ones you want in your organization…

They are good human beings…that care…

And if they care…you can give them all of the tools and training for success…

Because they will care about making sure… they learn how to use the tools to their best advantage…

They will care about absorbing ALL of the training… you are about to give them…for they will apply this training…to their jobs…and succeed greatly…

So do you wonder why some people…make things happen…while others watch things happen…while others still…have no clue as to what just happened???

It all comes down to a simple trait…called…caring…

If you surround your organization…with people that care…YOU…will succeed beyond your wildest dreams…
