build your castle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everett Berger, an executive coach and leadership development profes­sional, provided the following sage advice:

  1. Let go of the past.
  2. Build your castle first. Tap into a vision for yourself.

This comment is a reference to how Walt Disney built his castle first, before he built the entire kingdom.

  1. Tune out all the noise and voices.

This comment references the need to concentrate and focus. Your job is to look for a job. Focus on the right priorities.

luck

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sitting around waiting for the phone to ring only happens when you’ve taken the first action to send a note or make the initial call. You can hope for something to happen, or you can take action and make it hap­pen. I do believe in luck, but only after I’ve gotten the ball rolling. We have to be vigilant enough to push our own success along by taking the initiative to make our own luck.
