Certification? Certainly! ... The “BE” group

I have thought about the many seminars and classes we take from people who have information and advice for our careers and lives. After thinking about the many directions I could take, I have decided that I want to be a part of the “Be” group. I have listed a few key concepts we are all familiar with and may even already follow. But, I know I need to review them frequently and thought a support group of “BE”lievers could help us all connect. The following is my initial “BE” list” ► BE Dedicated: Hard work and dedication are keys to success. Know the balance between work and pleasure. Making and following through on your plan is extremely rewarding. ► BE Thoughtful: Think about what you want and how you want to get it. Make plans and goals and stay focused to attain them. Don’t let thinking become a lost art. ► BE Respectful: Respect others and yourself. Showing care and concern for your family, friends, colleagues and customers will always be a benefit to you, as well as those you interact with everyday. ► BE Humble: Sincere gratitude and humility are important character traits that are very noticeable in people. ► BE Involved: Life is truly short and what you do with it does make an impression and leaves a mark. Making a difference in a professional, community and charitable organization is rewarding for both you and the people you touch. Your time and talents are valuable assets, and do make a difference. ► BE Committed: To knowledge and growth. Ask questions if you want to know more or you do not understand. Take the time to really listen to others and you will always learn something ► BE Happy: Yes, I do like the song! Happiness is an attitude about life. It is important everyday and not easy to maintain. There will always be something to try and disrupt your attitude, but you do have a choice. Be the first to spread some happiness wherever you go. I must include one more “BE” especially because of my commitment and belief in certification. I have seen a difference in many people that have attained their certification. The level of professionalism and pride increase and I think that “BE CERTIFIED” should also be included on the list. Make this the time to obtain yours. Pava J.
