Something miraculous happened. Last week I sat down at the table with a sentence to restructure in my DMP. I absolutely knew that I had been looking at finding a prospective employee the wrong way. I started to look at the on boarding process as cumbersome and frustrating and it just was starting to feel like I would never find a solid employee to replace me at the largest janitorial account for Shaniko industrial. Taking to consideration the fact that language is the highest form of architecture known to man, I knew that this statement I was going to construct had to be extremely accurate. So now my DMP reads: Shaniko is continuously finding fantastic, trustworthy workers with have great work ethic, are incredibly dependable, and reliable members of the team that are providing excellent service to all the wonderful business we serve.
Here’s the magic…….Literally one day later a person calls me and expresses interest in the open position based upon a recommended friend who had previously worked for me. Fast forward 7 days later and at this point I am thrilled to announce that I believe I have actually found a good fit for the position. I still find myself attempting to default back to the old blue print and act from a place of fear rather than love and repeat fearful negative inner chatter all regarding the employee not working out in some way or another.
All of this is proof that an attitude of acceptance and love (as scroll 2 says) is the only way to move forward into the future without bringing all of the possible past negativity into the future with you. For if I hadn’t written that statement, even if he did show up without the writing of it, I truly believe it was the writing of this statement that allowed an inner change of the heart. This inner changing of the heart that moved into the unknown and mysterious thing that beats our hearts than blessed me with an opportunity to hire an employee that I can see working.
