Leaders, professionally and personally, understand focusing on “Becoming” rather than “Getting and Having” is the real goal, the real gift, and will multiply “Having” in the end!
I had the honor a while back of speaking for an organization and when I asked one of their employees (a Sales Rep) what her Vision was for working for the company, she exuberantly shared wanting to be a Million-Dollar Earner! I responded that it was awesome and also shared the pros and cons of it! The Pro was she had a high goal… and the obvious spunk, dedication, company tools, and company support to do so! The Con was, tying a number to anything is limiting… what if she reaches a million by August?
Most people tend to shut it down for the rest of the year or slow down to pace themselves. Rather than focusing on “Getting or Having” the Million-Dollar Earner title and the possible perks… rather let’s focus on “Becoming” the type of person (sales rep, professional, significant other, parent) that attracts “the things, the money, the titles, the connections” you desire. Perhaps she could be a 3 Million-Dollar Earner, but she limited herself by saying one million! I have a standard for how much I’d like to make a year, but I no longer set a number goal for the year. A standard is a level you won’t let yourself; your business, your relationship, or your life go under. However, getting up daily and focusing on “Becoming” will provide you with more than you could have ever dreamed of!
“Having” is a by-product of our evolved personal leadership skills and marrying what you want to do and give with what the person receiving your effort needs most right now (your boss, your employees, your clientele/customers, your partner, your kids, etc.)… when WE can do this and have the skills and consistency to back it up… believe me, “Having” comes in abundance!!!
