What do employers consider when deciding on your compensation, your promotion or whether or not to keep you when the company is going through tough times? The first things considered are your performance and your attitude towards work. Employers need to see how you are an asset to the company. They need to see how you make your work relevant and how your contributions push the company forward. It’s then very important that you win the trust and confidence of your employer in you at your job by showing pride in your work.
How you apply yourself at work
You more or less know what employers look for in their staff. They want reliable people who always deliver the goods and bring in the results they want. But how are these related to you and your value not just as an employee but as a person? When you value yourself as a person, regardless of your job, you will value any work you do to be important and the results will speak for you. On the surface, it seems any superior would look at how seriously you take your job but what really matters is how seriously you take yourself. It is clearly reflected in how you apply yourself at work regardless of your skill level.
Feel self respect
Consider your talent, skills and knowledge in your job. These were evaluated before you were hired. You already know what can be expected from you. The question now is do you apply yourself enough to meet or even exceed those expectations? This is where having the right attitude makes a big difference. It’s easy to say that falling short of expectations is due to loss of interest but really this is a self-defeating attitude. You have your reasons for staying in your job and these, believe it or not, have nothing to do with why it is good for you to show pride in your work. At the end of the day, the only question you have for yourself is on what you did with your time. When you know that you put yourself in everything you‘re supposed to do, you will genuinely feel self respect whether or not your work is appreciated. Caring about what you do and how you get things done will earn you the right to say you did well.
Make good use of your time
You chose the job you have. You owe it to yourself to do well and make good use of your time. Showing pride in your work is not about getting rewards from your boss. It’s about supporting yourself in the decisions you have made. You may or may not like your job, but you have decided to take it anyway. Show yourself the qualities of who you are in action, qualities that make you an asset to yourself and to any employer. Remember, there’s no job big or small for someone who values honest work.
Conclusion : Showing pride in your work may come with a price and yet the rewards are helping you to build a better future.
