The 3 GameChanging Ideas

So, let’s jump right into the three GameChanging ideas:

1. Do Great Work

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.”

- Steve Jobs, former Founder & CEO of Apple

It’s not always easy to discover what you love to do. We get caught up with the bills, the family, the pressure… and somewhere along the way we get lost. Yet, you can get back on track. You can get in touch with what you love to do, and you can do great work. Just remember what Steve says… “Don’t settle.”

2. Have A Sense of Purpose

“Link your work with a sense of purpose”

- John Donahoe, CEO & President of eBay

What a powerfully simple concept. If you link your work with a sense of purpose - something bigger than yourself, then you’ll find fulfillment while making a difference. So, do you feel like you have a sense of purpose in your work? If not, then it might be time to reflect on the kind of impact you’d like to make during the short time you have here on earth. There’s no better time than now to connect with your purpose, and make a difference.

3. “WOW” People

“To WOW, you must differentiate yourself and do something above and beyond what’s expected.”

- Tony Hsieh, Founder of Zappos

Fortunately for you, this is surprisingly easy to do nowadays… especially if you’re looking for your ultimate job. See, most people use a traditional cover letter and resume, even though only 1% of traditional resumes lead to a job offer. Yet there are far better (and shockingly simple) ways to get the attention of the world’s best companies and land your dream job. There are TONS of easy-to-use online platforms that can really help you stand out in a creative and authentic way. Between YouTube, Wordpress, and online resume builders, it’s not hard to differentiate yourself and “WOW” people. And if you want to learn how to really “WOW” some of the world’s best companies, you can check out your free bonus resource I promised you. It’s a video sharing 3 practical tips you can apply today to get your ultimate job. In it, I share the wisdom of my friend and mentor, who helped my get my ultimate job years ago.

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.
