Managers and Supervisors tend to like and appreciate the employees who are positive, motivated, driven and enthusiastic about their jobs. Employees who constantly complain or gossip will not get far in their career path! Who likes to be around drama, laziness, bad attitudes, unmotivated and negative people? If you are passionate about your job it will reflect in your job performance and others will notice. Once you lose your passion regarding your job you might as well look for something else because you are just going through the motions and who wants that! Find your passion and go for it!
Be the type of person who is not afraid to takes risks and who will get things done. Be persistent, knowledgeable and look at the big picture when someone says that will not work. Change is hard for some however have a positive attitude, work hard and never give up on what truly matters. Get to know others in your organization by networking, taking training classes, attending meetings and promoting your ideas to accomplish your goals.
Remember: Our hopes, desires and ambitions are a powerful force existing within us for shaping our future. To lose hope or give up one’s goals because of setbacks is to lower one’s potential. Hopes, dreams, faith and a sense of mission enable us to open up our lives and our careers. By keeping a positive attitude and taking initiative in your workplace can lead you on a great path for a successful career. – Patti Oskvarek

I took this photo at Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park, Arizona.
It amazes me how much this cactus is a perfect shape of a heart.
If there is light in the soul,
There will be beauty in the person,
If there is beauty in the person,
There will be harmony in the house,
If there is harmony in the house,
There will be order in the nation,
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.
