Do I feel tired!? Heck yes!! But do you want to know what is most satisfying!? Doing what I NEED to do anyways! Tony Robbins and many other successful thought leaders like him encourage us to ask ourselves “what are you willing to do now to get to where you want to be in the future?” There comes a threshold point where you are tired of being tired. It’s way too much wasted energy!!Drinking; waste of energy! Over sleeping; waste of time towards being productive. This isn’t about not having a life. Me working two jobs is something I feel I NEED to do short term for my long-term dreams to come true. It’s truly about getting uncomfortable and doing something you have never done before. I call this a leap of faith!!
My self-worth has improved dramatically the minute I decided that I was going to apply to Amazon!! It was an instant choice that was completed as soon as I let out the words. I did not let myself back out either. Also, ironically applying for amazon was probably the easiest job application process I will ever go through. That was immediate confirmation that I am right where I am supposed to be. I am proving to myself that I believe in me based on the actions and steps I am taking! There is no need for validation from others! I am excited about where I am headed. “I am a hustler baby! It ain’t where I been, but where I am about to go”. Lisa Nicolas used to sing the lyrics from this song and now I am doing it too!! Why not do something like that if it is a motivator!?
There are many people who complain about jobs, they expect to basically be spoon fed. Amazon seems to be a bit of a challenging place, but I notice the personality in the workers that thrive there! You want to know what I see? I see intense work ethic, not necessarily because they need to, but because it is what they value above all else. People feel overworked here, but so far, I don’t feel any of that! Amazon prides itself on aiming to be the most customer centric company in the world! Mind you, many of the employees are also customers themselves of Amazon!! I like the aim and the vision at amazon! If only you could see all the amazing talent that went into making this company function the way it does!! Considering the extremely easy hiring process, I believe that Amazon believes in you and your ability to step up and help them reach their goal! I know when you hear about the people on top and how rich they are it can be viewed in a negative way. However, I believe that in every job you do, you should hold yourself to a standard that states you will do the best in everything you attempt to do! There will literally be nothing but gratitude and you will be a pleasure to work with when you come from this place!
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
