Today, millions of people will vote. Ultimately, their vote will decide our future. “Change” has been the theme this year. The debate has centered on who will most effectively deliver transformation.
But the “know-it-alls” have it wrong. We’ll tell you who you should vote for. And if you want, you can steal the election right now.
Here’s the elephant in the office: It’s stunning how many companies beat their employees down, to the point where people have lost confidence in the one person (the only person) who can create change: themself. “Why even try?” and “I’m not very good at…” and “You don’t expect me to do the job, do you?” fill conversations in countless offices.
If that’s what people are saying aloud, imagine the destructive messages in their “self talk.” It’s like being a candidate in the most important race of your life and voting against yourself.
STOMP THE ELEPHANT
Today, vote for yourself. You are the only person who can create the change you want to see in your career, relationships and life. If this sounds like a cliché, it’s because it is. And the reason it is: It’s true.
Take this challenge: Step into your own voting booth and determine the top three things you are most passionate about. Next, draw the curtain and take three steps. If you execute them you will deliver more change than you can imagine.
- Commit to focusing on where you’ve successfully delivered in the past.
- Generate innovative ideas to raise the bar.
- Daily tap into your motivations on why this change is important to you.
You can’t win if you don’t vote for yourself. So start voting for the only person who can create change today.
Where will you lead – where will you stomp elephants – today?
