“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.

  • I received a call from Clint, after he introduced himself he told me about a job he thought I would be perfect for. A franchise of the company I had previously worked for. What he was about to find out was I interviewed with them and tanked it. Yes, I tanked an interview with a company I spent 9 years working for. You have to understand I've only had 2 jobs in 20 years so and I was nervous and wasn’t sure what to expect, I also thought my work experience with the company would be doing some of the talking for me. Clint said he would be in touch if anything came up. I thought that was the end of it. A few days later he called and helped me rewrite my resume to get the best of what I did that I didn’t think was that important onto paper. He called with another opportunity and set up the interview. Clint didn’t just set up an interview, he called the day before and spent an hour of his time prepping me for it. We went over the list of questions he sent that he thought would be asked and questions I should ask. I was more relaxed and the interview went well. I got a call 3 days later after they finished up the rest of the interviews and was offered the job. I called Clint and told him the good news, and that he wouldn’t have to deal with me anymore. Instead I was told he would be there throughout my training and the transition into the position. It’s awesome to know that someone is there to talk to if needed.  I truly believe I got the job because of Clint. I know I did on my merits but Clint was a huge help. Who would have thought one and done. I would recommend Clint Carpenter and Patrice and Associates to anyone.   Bethanne Volz
