Yes, I am gainfully employed but I kept getting messages from this company, let’s call it WWCA, so I took a part-time job with them.
First, I was getting notes from Charles. He seemed to know me well and was always commenting that I wasn’t achieving results because my mind was not focused. I thought he was crazy because we never spoke prior, but I saw some truth to his statements. I learned a long while ago that if you can’t make up your mind on what you want (double minded), it would be hard to get stable results. Once I showed him some interest he introduced me to his colleague Wallace.
Wallace was a different story. I had to keep asking him to repeat himself. I told him it wasn’t him, it was me. I was really being honest, I just was having difficulty with his language. Once I started to understand what he was offering me, I saw that he was trying to get me to see the value of the company. He kept asking me to think about it, and to visualize myself working for the company. When I said I will think about it, I got a call from William.
Out of the gate he indicated that he was surprised that I hadn’t yet agreed to join the company, and suggested that I needed to become better at taking action. William was correct, I wasn’t taking consistent action. William pushed me to maintain a positive mental attitude, and to put in the hard work, and be persistent. I was impressed that the company was solid, so I said yes.
My orientation upon onboarding required me to learn a few laws, the most recent was the Law of Least Effort. Surprisingly, I am seeing shifts because of the tasks assigned. So I am fully embracing my part time job, because as they say, if you do what you love, you will never work a day. Cheers to all those who choose to work for this company.
Thanks, Theo, for this personal experience lesson about the importance of focus, persistence, and taking action! 🙂
