Joe Calloway knows about success. He’s achieved prosperity in his own life and helped others learn to create their own success. He owns an award-winning restaurant, is the author of three books and is a member of the International Speakers Hall of Fame. His clients include household names such as IBM and BMW.
In his newest book, Work Like You're Showing Off: The Joy, Jazz, and Kick of Being Better Tomorrow Than You Were Today, Calloway makes it clear that anyone from a sales clerk to an executive has control of his or her potential to achieve success. He gives the example of Leslie, an employee at his local Kinko’s. Leslie always seems to have a smile on her face and, no matter the task, she goes about it enthusiastically. Calloway explains that Leslie shows off quietly, by performing her duties and going above and beyond when needed.
Calloway defines “showing off” in a positive light. He states, “Showing off is about bringing the best you have to any situation. Showing off is an attitude that says, when presented with a problem or challenge, ‘Watch this.’”
Work Like You're Showing Off explores the four commitments that lead to success:
- 1. Commitment to action: Stop talking about it and do it
2. Commitment to improvement: Either get better or quit
3. Commitment to connection: Connect with coworkers and friends
4. Commitment to purpose: Look beyond the job to the purpose of the work
Being your very best is more than just doing more, it’s about being more. More relaxed, more joyful, more excited. If you’re looking for a way to not only get ahead at work, but to find success in all areas of your life, you’ll want to read Work Like You're Showing Off.Powered by Sidelines
