Work hard, be a team player and do more than what is expected. There is no need to flaunt your success or what you have done. If you work hard, people can tell. If you're lazy, people can tell.
Opportunities do not work on a schedule. Opportunities to get extra work, make more money, get your dreams to come true happen at unexpected times. At the last minute, more work may need to be done. There is no room for whining or complaining. Certainly, we all do at some point, but we are wrong in doing so. Going the extra mile and becoming more successful goes beyond just the 9-5 hours; especially at first.
While it's good to be humble, and let your work and actions speak for themselves, you must also let people know what you're about. Let your talents be known and voice be heard.
Sometimes we are just tired, burned out, overwhelmed and just want to lay down. Unfortunately, life does not stop when we do. Work still needs to get done, and sometimes we need to work through pain, exhaustion, fear, stress and so on. We just have to.
Now, I completely advocate and believe in working hard and playing hard. I believe in taking breathers and enjoying the fruits of our labor, whatever that may mean for you. However, when work needs to be accomplished, this takes priority.
Work hard, be a team player, go the extra mile: you will be respected by most.
Is what you are doing today creating for you a better tomorrow? Make investments in different areas of your life to create a better future for yourself...
Ultimately, to get ahead, you must do more than what is expected. Whatever the job, hobby or activity may be. To get higher wages at work, you must go above and beyond what you are expected or paid to do. To get in shape, you must push yourself a little more each day. Do more than what is expected to get ahead in life.
Take in and embrace the beautiful moments in life. Be glad when you are able to experience them in your own life.
Life never takes a day off. Whether you're ready or not, life will come at you fast without warning. That's just the way it is.
For all of my nurse colleagues: be the type of nurse you want taking care of you. It can be very difficult due to business and demands of the job, but it still must be done to the best of our abilities.
