Motto of the Month – Success

Success is the progressive realization of the worthy goal or ideal. – Earl Nightingale

I have been listening to motivational audios for over 2  years now, and this is TRUE FACTS! Never give up on your values, beliefs and morals.

A man/woman is what he / she thinks about all day long. Think about this too, All the hate in the fake news (a.k.a. communication channels whether radio, tv or internet) about racism,  gender or economic classes can affect you at your subconscious level and limit your potential for growth.

Success - Anayansi Van Der Berg


The real problem with people isn’t simply fear but conformity as we do what we see or are told to believe what we see or hear. GOD is within you.

Features of Success

What is it that makes one person succeed and another fail when the two seem to have about equal ability?  Some have said that the difference is in the amount of motivation and effort each brings to the job.  Others have said that an intent to become excellent is the main difference.

At least four items likely to have a vital effect on our success:

  1. basic ability
  2. a desire to excel
  3. an aim to succeed
  4. and zestful effort

If any one of these is absent or at a low level, our chances for success are lessened. These features, however, can be developed if we wish.

Do You Have a Team?

A team is a group of individuals who see themselves and are seen by others as a social entity, which is interdependent because of the tasks performed as members of a group.

Not every member works well together. We have team members that are passive-aggressive, others that do not participate and do not turn in their assigned task. However, we can bring out either the best or worst in one another.

When a group of individuals work together to achieve a goal, they often fail because individual agendas outweigh the commitment to the common goal.

In some companies, team members are provided with a great deal of feedback regarding their performance, they are encouraged to work for the common good of the organization. But there are also team members that do not understand the decisions that are made, or don’t agree with them.

Teams do not become effective overnight. Team building is a process that requires due attention and care. Team development means developing a person’s skills both within the group and individually, for the goal of enhancing project performance. Development as a team is critical to project success.

To be able to work independently, the team member must be creative, proactive and inspired by a vision of how things could be. At the same time the individual must be accountable for each task even if they have a team to do the work. I work from home and many of my team members live across the country. We meet once a week and we have access to email. As part of a Virtual Team Member, I must be able to stay focused to get things done.

If a team member does not perform up to standards, for example, if he/she does not return a task on time when promised and does not advise the reason, the project team contacts them. If the member responds and asks for an extension, he/she is advised who will make a decision as to whether the member should be granted an extension. If at the end, there is no response, the project manager will make a decision as to whether the team member should be removed.

If we keep on doing what we’re doing and working as one team, the project will be a success.
