an associate’s physical existence in and an emotion connection to
the workplace, their job description, functional job assignment and
job tasks can become challenging and uninspiring. So difficult
that an associate may become disconnected, discouraged, disgruntle,
angry or despondent. Of course such depleting emotions can cause
or tempt an associate to give up on the organizational goals, strategic
plan, mission and vision, or their long term employment.
As like any
sort of disconnect in any size or type of organization, such a state
is usually followed by one or a combination of but not limited to the
following: decreased profits, low associate morale, lack of
inefficient customer service, loss of team spirit and cooperation,
of products or a less than approving reputation.
I share with
you, Code of Persistence an exert from
to Turn Failure into Success
by Harold Sherman, re-published in
by John C. Maxwell where Messrs Maxwell and Sherman encourage those who
are may be prone or tempted to give up:
will never give up so long as I know I am right.
will believe that all things will work out for me if I hang on until
will be courageous and undismayed in the face of odds.
will fight to overcome all physical handicaps and setbacks.
will try again and again and yet again to accomplish what I desire.
will take new faith and resolution from the knowledge that all
men and women have had to fight defeat and adversity.
will never surrender to discouragement or despair no matter what
obstacles may confront me.
yourselves and your colleagues to move forward like a raging fire, be
flexible to change directions like the wind, flow slowly and ever so
gently like water in a stream and stand still and firm like the roots
of an oak tree.
The Winning Attitude,
John C. Maxwell
