“You are working too hard-you don’t need to and you’re making everyone else look bad”-my peer.
I looked down and didn’t say a word.😔
“This isn’t college anymore. This is the real world. You’ll see. I’m next in line and I’ll be your boss one day.”-Peer 😛
3 months later he was promoted and became my boss..
“Keep working hard and you’ll make me even more money! I’ll probably make $80K this year”-My assistant manager now laughs 😂
I didn’t say word.
I kept working hard and producing.
A year later, I got him promoted to a branch manager.
“Chan – see? You don’t need to work that hard like I told you! Get others to work hard for you and you can get promoted too” – He laughs 🤣
I still kept hustling.
Fast forward 10+ years and 10 promotions for me…
He’s in the same role STILL.
I have never regretted NOT taking his advice.
I’ve learned long ago two very important things:
1) Only take advice from people who have achieved what you want to achieve.💡
2) The Force of MEDIOCRITY is REAL and all around us… NEVER let it influence you! 💡
