“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The recent passing of Neil Armstrong reminded me of his historic first step on the moon when he uttered the now famous words “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”  Landing on the moon was unthinkable just 10 years earlier, so how did this happen?

President Kennedy actually set forth the vision for a moon landing when he set a goal of “landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth” in 1961.  Less than 10 years later, Neil Armstrong achieved this vision with the help of hundreds of thousands of people (it was estimated that over 300,000 people had some role in the mission).  The individuals working on this mission were passionate about achieving this goal and did not want to let the brave astronauts down.

Your vision probably doesn’t include landing on the moon, but answer these questions:  Why do you exist?  What is your purpose, cause or passion?  Do you have a 10 year vision or goal that seems unthinkable?

If you announce your goal, write it down, share it with others who get others excited about your goal and write down a target date, chances are you will accomplishment an unthinkable “giant leap” of your own.

  • Is it time to stop standing by the sidelines watching everyone else succeed?
  • Is it time to increase your income?
  • Is it time to live the life style that you deserve to live?
  • Is it time for you to take a “giant leap” in your level of success?

Change is not easy but is easier to achieve, if you understand how the results of the change will impact yourself and the people you love.

This weekend, those of us in the US celebrate Labor Day where individuals just like you are honored for being part of the contributing workforce of the United States.  Take time to appreciate the impact of what you do every day.  You change people’s lives and help them realize the joy of working in temp, contract or full-time opportunities.

Make a promise this Labor Day weekend to make the most of your amazing career.  Use Neil Armstrong as your inspiration and shoot for the stars when you set your goals.  Don’t be afraid to blaze untraveled paths.  Set your financial thermostat higher and build a legacy for you and the people you love.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career.

    Sherri Balzer is an excellent job recruiter. I had been working with her for more than 3 months where I had multiple job interviews with different companies. She is always very detailed, caring, patient, and most of all very professional. I turned down multiple job offers because they were not a good fit for me and Sherri understood my reasons. Instead of losing hope in me she kept working hard looking for other companies that suited my skill set and knowledge. We found the perfect company and I got the best job offer available. I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career. Respectfully,

    Andrew Figueroa

  • Working with Jillian and Patrice & Associates Hospitality Recruitment was an amazing experience.  First of all, the work Jillian did on my resume before presenting me to the client was outstanding.  I really feel that it presented me in the best light for the client (and it worked because I got the job!).  I’ve worked with a lot of recruiting firms before and the level of service provided by Jillian was far and above the rest of the industry.  Jillian was always available to talk any time of the day and really made me feel like she wasn’t just concerned with placing a candidate - she also cared about my happiness and well-being throughout the process.
