My recent visit to a clothing store, the job of this security person in this snap, is to ensure that people walk into trail rooms with only 3 garments and walk out with the selected one or return back, if that does not fit into their scheme.
What surprised me is that, while his job is only to collect the clothes back which he did, but he kept on doing what is not expected out of him. He folds the collected clothes from customers and stacking up the same to his side as it becomes easy to replace it back in respective shelves for the main staff.
I asked him whether it is his job to folds clothes and he says to me the following:
• I do fold clothes because I am learning an additional skill
• I do fold clothes because I am targeting to become a Counter Sales Person
• I do fold clothes because I want to become, floor manager like the one current showroom has
• I do fold clothes because in the near future I want to have my own shop
These were the exact words he said in the local dialect and I was standing there frozen with his powered vision for himself.
All of us live in Corporate World at different levels with different levels of frustrations and some of the readers of this article could be home makers. Irrespective of which quadrant of life we belong to, are we moving up with an additional skill that makes more valuable at the market place.
In a crowded world where no one has time for the other, it could be wrong to look at someone to take us to places of opportunities and prosperity. We have to make our way up like this security person who is working on his growth path.
Let me conclude this article with a sentence – “Your Income will never far exceed Your Personal Development”
