A Professionals Roadmap to Success
Let’s say “success” is your “true north”. The destination of where you want to go. And your “integrity” and your “professionalism” is your desire to get to that destination.
Let’s say “legality” is the roadway that gets you to that destination, and “safety” is considered the guardrails that keep you on that path.
While the destination never changes, there might be different routes that take you to that same destination. Some may be longer and some may be riskier, but eventually they will still get you there.
However, there are some paths that can take you way off course, and some that are dangerous that lead to destruction.
Whenever you compromise a standard of legality or safety, you start removing those guardrails, and narrowing that path.
However, whenever you start compromising your integrity or standard of professionalism, you start to redefine your “true north” destination of success altogether. And the further you go down that path the further you steer away from success.
The Roadmap to Success is an operational mindset and way of being that is LEGAL, PROFESSIONAL and SAFE. And every time you compromise a standard, you set a new one. So you have to be mindfully aware about staying on that narrow path so that you can get to your “true north” destination.
That’s how you reach success, retiring when and how you want to.
