Success Isn’t About You

 

Everyone wants to be recognized for something. The problem with seeking recognition is the equivalent of starting a business solely for the money.

One of my mentors told me that if you are the smartest person in the room… you’re in the wrong room altogether.

You see, it’s not about being the smartest in the room. It’s not about receiving the credit for positive changes in your restaurant. It should be about the team that you put together that helps you move your restaurant forward and as a leader, you should be willing to give the team the credit.

You receive recognition as the owner of the restaurant for the restaurant growth. It’s your vision that started it all but the people that you put onto your team to help you with it, they are all looking to be recognized by you.

The more you succeed, the bigger influence you have on your employees, your customers, and your community. Focus on the impact you make in the community and you will receive credit. But success isn’t about YOU – it’s about your IMPACT within your community.
