Be So Good They Can’t Ignore You
I saw this quote originally from my cousin’s facebook post and it truly motivated me as well as made me think. This motivational quote is from the actor Steve Martin.
Everyone has their own interpretations of motivational quotes and what it means to them, but this quote really ties in with my professional career and the motivation to strive to be so good, that others cannot ignore you… even if they tried. Have you ever heard of other co-workers who has shared a best practice or mentioned a method another co-worker used to handle a challenge or obstacle? That is what this motivational quote means to me, as you do things so well, that others take notice.
This quote is motivational because it helps me focus on being the best I can be and to execute at the highest level. We all want recognition, but when you are so good, I must agree that others will not be able to ignore you. You build a reputation, you build your personal brand and they know you provide quality work.
In my line of work, which is sales, lets say i have back to back to back sales growth and goal over-achievement. The numbers do not lie and this is what I mean by being so good, others can’t ignore you and people will seek your advice on how you were able to attain such success your credibility for your suggestions bear more weight and people will take notice and listen to your advice. This quote motivates me to want to do well and to not only do it once in a while but to consistently deliver good work.
