Quest for a higher pay: A Matter of Attitude
A lot of my fellow employees believe that to have a higher income, we have to be at the mercy of outside forces - the boss, the wage scale, the recession, the poor local economy, the presidents economic policy and all other reasons.
This is the attitude of always looking for other people/reasons to blame for their circumstances. If you will always be looking for other people to blame and feeling sorry for yourself, you certainly fail to see a lot of opportunities that come your way.
Once you learn to change your attitude towards your work, you will experience a transformation of your performance in your job. Your attitude of being an employee will change to become more of an entrepreneur. Whenever you are working, you are working for your self.
The attitude that you show in your work will reflect the quantity and quality of your work, in your interactions with employers and fellow employees and your fearfulness about your job security.
But how do we change these kind of attitude? To do these one must cultivate a positive attitude of self-respect, pride in your contribution to your workplace, dedication to your job, cooperation with your employers and coworkers, desire to do the the job right, personal integrity, responsibility and accountability- commit to a 100% excellence.
These integrity and the increased quality and productivity of your work will easily qualify you for a pay raise (Your money or your life by Vicki Robin & Joe Dominguez).
Hence, there are times that you don't need to ask your employers to give you a pay raise, you certainly attract it and have it.
At the end of the day.. A job well done - does no other good but to the man who does it.
Happy Pay Raise
Aside from doing good on your job we must also realize that we need to increase our value as an individual.
What I did is I join the Truly Rich Club, of Bo Sanchez as my means to open myself to other forms of financial increases.
