Success is…

“Success is empty if you arrive at the finish line alone. The best reward is to get there surrounded by winners.”

Howard Schultz

No one ever arrived at a finish line alone. There is always a team there doing something to ensure success, whether it is behind the scenes or front and center.

Who is on your team? Have you recognized and thanked them? Have you pushed them to front and center?

This is the real reward, being able to say “thank you” and “job well done” to those that made it happen. Success is being able to say “thank you.”

Seek accountability…

“People want to be given responsibility to help solve the problem and the authority to act on it.”

Howard Schultz

If you are accountable for the problem then you have a responsibility to solve it and the necessary imperative to find a way to get the authority to act on it.

Most people don’t seek accountability, instead they run the other way. To make a difference seek to be accountable, that is what brings responsibility and authority.
