I come at my own profession with the mindset that I’m going 💯 and ten percent into it. You won’t find me talking overally much or lazying around ever. I’m there to work.
I give it everything I’ve got. I’m a slow learner in some regards but I stick to it because I’m of the mindset. Everyday is a chance for me to improve. It’s a chance for me to gain more respect. It’s a chance to challenge myself. It’s chance to advance myself. It’s a chance to be the best me I can be and earn value and appreciation for what I do.
Listen nobody has ever given me a check. I earn my resources every work day on the grind. I don’t take vacations. I take breaks to get other shit done.
I take pride and some days complete joy in the work and profession I’m in. I wouldn’t want it any other way. But, the respect I’ve earned I don’t let any man step on it. The best impression I want to leave people is I don’t give anybody any shit. I show up early. I dress for work. I respect everybody and smile everyday and I work my ass off because one day I’ll be dead and gone.
Today is the only day I have. Tomorrow is not promised to me.
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.” Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NKJV)
