Because they are misinformed on what being a boss means!
To be your own BOSS doesn’t require you to leave your job, actually far from it. It requires a mindset change in how you think. Now, we aren’t talking about a new role, title, pay raise, or some spot on the organization chart. Being the BOSS is all about taking command and leading yourself.
The biggest issue is that people let work define who they are and where they are going. They become their performance appraisals; they deliver on their employer’s dreams without having any of their own. Their ambition is tied up in the hierarchical structure of the company.
It is a shame, because it doesn’t have to be that way.
The research keeps showing that when people grow, learn and forge their own path to obtain their own dreams, they are more productive, ambitious, happier, and more likely to help their company grow! Though the employee first needs two things: something to grow into and something to learn about.
This is where Live The Risk comes in—we help people discover a dream of their own that is POWERFUL, PERSONAL, and SPECIFIC! We enable them to take control and lead themselves in order to build a roadmap for what they want to do in their lives.
When a person connects what they doing today to their future they will make progress!
And for those who are wondering if this is good thing for the employer, it is. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, when employees are happy they help their employers become better and grow faster. In 2014, revenues increased by more than 22.2% for the Fortune 100 Best Companies To Work For group and they were growing by leaps and bounds all because their employees were happy.
The opportunity to hold personal and professional dreams in focus and use the work environment to achieve those dreams is what the successful employee should be after. This is where the power of the Live The Risk model is… Frustrated, yet successful, employees don’t have to quit to get what they want. They just need to understand what they want!
This is how a person starts to be their own BOSS.
