You don’t have to be extravagant or over the top to be a star.

Posted by Spike MondayMotivator

These days no matter what you do, you are a star to a certain audience. An audience that might buy from you or trust you to work on their behalf.

You don’t have to be extravagant or over the top to be a star. You need to be good at what you do.

Arthur Freed once said, “Don’t try to be different. Just be good. To be good is different enough.”

Customers and co-workers alike want to interact with people who bring a positive and proactive attitude to their jobs. But it’s difficult to stay enthusiastic and excited when things aren’t going well. And boy, have things not been “going well” for some time now.

Beyond the year we’ve had, how can you do it?

When actors are on stage, they know they must be so good at their role that their performance will be remarkable in the eyes of their audience. That is good enough to be remarked on after the performance is over. They know they must be “star performers” who will be remembered for doing an excellent job.

Like actors, we all play a part. Your customers and co-workers have a right to expect a “star performance” from you because they serve as your audience. They expect you to play your part well, regardless of what is going on in your personal or professional life.

While they don’t expect you to act like a robot or be fake or phoney, they do expect you to play the part of a professional, even when you’re not feeling particularly enthusiastic, compassionate, or whatever your job requires you to be.

Today’s world needs people who are positive, proactive and enthusiastic. Your attitude has the power to make or break your business – and your career. It only takes one person to set the tone for the entire team.

Do your customers and co-workers see you as a positive and proactive person – a “star performer?” Or would they remember your “performance” for all the wrong reasons??

This week be a star and watch the difference you will make.
