This I Believe
By: Collin Jacques
How to demonstrate you have good work ethic:
- Honesty, If a coworker or teacher can't trust you that could lead to serious problems.
- Do quality work. Doing bear minimum will make you look lazy and will not get you where you want to be.
- Responsibility. To be successful you must be responsible, a teacher/employer wants someone who will turn work in properly as well as on time.
- Teamwork. You must be able to work with others to be successful. Group work is big in the world we live in today.
How to keep yourself motivated:
- The biggest key to staying motivated is to set goals. If you don't set goals you will not see results. Goals also help you see how far you really have come.
- You must keep a positive attitude. A negative mind will never give you a positive life.
- Don't be to hard on yourself. You will not always reach your goal, but you will REALLY never reach your goals if you feel sorry for yourself.
- Most of all don't forget to treat yourself, especially when you reach a goal. It helps you realize that what you're working for isn't meaningless.
Don't talk about it, be about it. Everything great has to start somewhere.
Set yourself up to be successful, you don't want to look back and say I should have tried harder. Be the person your future self would be proud of.
If you want success bad enough, it will come with hard work. I'm a true believer that if you work hard enough at what you're passionate about you will be successful.
Respect Your Elders
Apply Yourself in Everything You Do
Everyone has to do something they don't like in their life, but if you can survive in your weaknesses, you will thrive in your strengths.
If you do everything in life through God he will give you countless blessings and most of all he will give you the biggest blessing of all, eternal life in his kingdom. God wants more for you and your life. He blessed you with all you need to be successful in life, it's time to start applying yourself.
Give all glory to God
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Trust in God in everything you do, and God will make you successful.
