(Part 10) Workplace Dreams: Winning Big in Business One Success At a Time!
What’s the connection between gas prices and Wall Street? Speculation! This is the cost of trying to anticipate how Mid-East turmoil will affect supply and demand for fuel. What’s the connection between Phil Mickelson and ExxonMobil? They’ve become masters of their game. Did luck play a part?
Many wonder if there’s a connection between success and luck. In one sense “you reap what you so.” In another sense “what goes around comes around.” Being a master of your game is less about luck and more about constantly growing in self-awareness. It’s in knowing what you do well and what you don’t.
Mickelson didn’t become a golf champion by chance. ExxonMobil in becoming the world’s largest oil company started with exploration. They developed techniques to go deeper into the ground. They refined fuel that allows planes to fly all around. They turned exploration into large-scaled production.
To know your strengths is to go deeper into self. This allows you to find more things you can do for good. A master at the game takes their strengths to the fullest length. They produce value on a winning basis. After a while you’ll have more ways to use your strengths to penetrate the marketplace.
ExxonMobil has figured out multiple uses for oil. There’s kerosene, gasoline, aviation fuel, plastic, rubber and more. So mastery is in how you multiply your strengths. A champion in golf, business or in life turns exploration into more chances for total domination. And that’s no speculation!
Tip: A champion lover, fighter or golfer works on going deeper to explore and produce greater domination.
