Gaining Loyalty

You must demonstrate respect for others through your words and actions.  Be proud of what you do and believe strongly in your organization and the services you offer.  Focus on what can be accomplished with hard work and determination.  Know that the work you do today will be the foundation for some ones future.  This is the kind of loyalty that builds success.
Be confident that when you are called upon, you will control the outcome, knowing that by influencing others they will come up with the solution you already had in mind.  Think through every situation and feel confident that you came up with the best solution for everyone involved.   
Research and prepare every presentation as if each was your first.  You will be amazed at how deeply embedded our perceptions are controlled by the way we see and behave.  As a leader you have the ability to shape the world and interpret how the rest of the world looks at it.  Where there is a will, there is always a way.

Plain honesty puts life into practice.  Without honesty and integrity the challenges of life will surface and failure will impact our success.  It is our character that powers the unforeseen influence of a person’s life, like who we really are and not just pretending to be.  We all tend to see the world not as it is, but as we want it to be.  For this reason we need to be open minded, and be more objective to how others view and perceive the world.  It’s kind of like turning the light on.  Whether it is a good or bad situation, it is a powerful source that alters how we see the world.
