….but don´t take it out of other peoples hands!
Earn it yourself!
DECISIONS …… a song title by Miley Cyrus (loaded on YouTube 01/2013)
I am reading “Give and Take” by Adam Grant. The book is about givers, takers and matchers. It explains how they act, think, who stays on the bottom level and who goes UP to the TOP and who remains in the middle field. Just to give you an idea: the givers are on TOP, passing all others, even the aggressive takers who get a success out of taking things away from others.
Lately I googled “decisions” and stumbled over a song from Miley Cyrus on youtube. She sings about deciding to want it all and to get it all & she wants to eat the whole cake because she´s not sharing.
What sounds like a taker´s goal at first place, looking deeper by listening, it is about earning the whole cake and when you´re good enough to get it – why not eat it yourself? Translated into the biz-language it means: take the complete profit for your product! Get on top of the list to become N°1, that´s where the whole cake is waiting for you!!
It´s a decision to make everything to become the next N°1. Becoming someone asks for continuing action, daily action. And daily action is triggered by deciding to do something to be productive. If you decide to take it, take it all!
Further, it´s also a decision to write blog-posts, either daily or three times per week. Once decided you have to be sure to write those posts, find topics, permanently add value, read books, find ideas, have great headlines which shall attract new readers, …… all this started with a single decision! And all you do is actively deal with ONE OF the connected consequences which is writing and reading to stay in the game!
And you? Did you decide to take it all and not share the cake either?
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
