Individual Toolbox

Students will put together a creative personal collection of useful advice/information to help attain the goals listed in their class bio using Pinterest. The information should come from various magazine articles, books, etc. (which must be referenced). For each statement, provide your own thoughts on how this advice can be helpful to you and your organization/industry. Add a photo which fully captures your thoughts.
“Tell me who your heroes are and I’ll tell you how you’ll turn out to be.”  I believe that having the right mentors and role models throughout life can make a monumental difference in the mark that person leaves on the world. Having a mentor gives a person something specific to strive for, and serves as a prime example of who the mentee can potentially become. During the first year of my career I hope to find mentors in the workplace that will challenge me to live up to my full potential.

“It’s better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you’ll drift in that direction.”  The people you associate yourself with says a lot about the type of person you are. George Washington said it best, “It is better to be alone than in bad company.” If we surround ourselves with people who motivate use to do better, it will make our whole group collectively better over time. This is probably what I love most about Morehouse.

“In the world of business, the people who are most successful are those who are doing what they love.” There's a quote that says, “If you find something you love doing, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. I have a love for Finance and for helping people, which is why I chose to be a Financial Advisor. I imagine it being a quite heavy burden to wake up every morning hating your career. In my profession, I hope to make my work and the relationships with my clients something valuable.

“Never give up searching for the job that you are passionate about.”  Passion is something that has brought me farther than I could have ever dreamed. Attending Morehouse was my passion all throughout high school, and now that I have almost reached the end of my matriculation here, I strive to hold the same level of passion for my company. It is the determination and passion in a person that makes them stand out from the average worker.

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.”  Reputation is everything, and I guard my reputation with much defensiveness. I have heard many people say that one’s reputation will usually reach you before the actual person does. So much of a professional’s career is based upon his or her reputation with the organization.

“Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”  This is an extremely powerful quote in my opinion. The resources that most millenials use today, are byproducts of hard work and dedication that was applied by generations that came before us. I will always do my best to pay homage to those who came before me in my field of study and use the resources that these great individuals have left to build my own legacy.
