Is your work too hard? This week I am talking about becoming a success. Success is not something you can just say I want to be successful. You have to put in a little bit of hard work. Being an Instructor for the Apprenticeship I get the privilege of see many that graduate go on to be very successful in the trades. They are not always the smartest either, but they did know how to work hard and ask questions. They also have become respected in their field and are still learning, Many time those that claim to know it all are still in the same position years later and have not advanced much.  I can also tell you that though some claim to know it all, they really don't. They just want everyone to think they do, which is way they are so hard to work with. You never get to a point where you have nothing to learn. Understand this simple statement and you will always be able to step into the opportunity that may come your way.  You can spend a lot of time listening on how to be successful, or you can just wish to be successful, but success is not always about the money. Either way it will not happen with some good old elbow grease and hard work.  Are you looking to be successful in the trades. You can make a good living but it does not happen over night.  Start hanging around those that influence others not those that are always tearing others down. The positive  attitude will take you a long way. Do you want to succeed than join me today as I talk about If it was Easy it Would not be Called Work Episode 39 Here are the links for the Code update Training for Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing, as well as the Exam prep and Contractors prep course.

Being prepared is something we hear about but many times dont take action until we are in the middle of the battle. So when that right opportunity comes around and you are offered that promotion or new job. First comes the excitement than comes the fear. Training to be a leader should start way before you actually become a leader.  I was at a conference one time and heard John Maxwell speak. He made a very profound statement that I will never forget. He was talking to a person that was very intested in what John had to say and it went something like this: Individual: "wow John great word when I get to be a leader I am going to buy one of your books" John:Looked and him confused and said: " Why don't you buy one of my books and learn to be a leader" Interesting statement but hopefully you see the point. Those of you that have never heard of John Maxwell any of his books are a great read 360 leadership is a good one to start with. Hopefully you get the point don't wait to get thrown to the wolves before you learn how to get away. Enjoy this weeks podcast Episode 38 Don't get Thrown to the Wolves.
