One of the Best Jobs in the World

One of the best jobs in the world is yours.

Why? Because you're in it. 

You bring yourself to that job every workday. Your self. That means your character, attitude and skills. Your experience, insight, intuition, and reputation also go into the mix.

After all, your executives and managers didn't hire a machine. They hired you. Regardless of your job title or how much you are paid, you possess a bundle of talents and thoughts which no one else - no one else in the entire world - has.

You are one in billions and you can make a serious difference.

You can help as many people as possible, boost the spirits of co-workers, and study how to do the work better. You can hone your personal skills and set an example for the customers and associates who see you. You can make the day of others, all the while knowing that you will never be able to tell how many you've influenced for the better.

Ignore the negative people who say your job is minor and that it does not deserve anything above a minimal amount of effort. No job is minor and those who give the minimum in life soon have the habit of deserving it.

You give more and you get more, even if it is merely - merely! - the knowledge that you will not become grasping, mediocre, unethical, or cynical.

You have one of the best jobs in the world.
