At times 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 productivity, inefficient customer service, loss of team spirit and cooperation, inequality of products or a less than approving reputation.  

I share with you, Code of Persistence an exert from How to Turn Failure into Success by Harold Sherman, re-published in  The Winning Attitude by John C. Maxwell where Messrs Maxwell and Sherman encourage those who are may be prone or tempted to give up:  

  • I will never give up so long as I know I am right.
  • I will believe that all things will work out for me if I hang on until the end.
  • I will be courageous and undismayed in the face of odds.
  • I will fight to overcome all physical handicaps and setbacks.
  • I will try again and again and yet again to accomplish what I desire.
  • I will take new faith and resolution from the knowledge that all successful men and women have had to fight defeat and adversity.
  • I will never surrender to discouragement or despair no matter what seeming obstacles may confront me.

Encourage 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.
