1. Lose the what's not in it for me attitude. It's easy to focus on what you're not getting. In fact, the only time I get upset with an employer, a job, or with a personal relationship, is if I focus on what I'm not getting or not getting what I think I deserve to get. By losing the "what's not in it for me" attitude, I am able to clearly see what it is I appreciate about what I do and who I'm doing it with.
2. Know that I'm here to serve. I've always been the GM (general manager) of every movie theater I've ever worked at (since I was 20 years old), and as the GM that means I have a lot of people to serve. My employees and managers aren't there to serve me. I'm here to serve them. It's my place to provide them with what they need to succeed and to help them get to the next level. I'm here to provide them with training, tools to succeed, and leadership. The higher up you go in your career, the more people you get to serve.
3. Stay humble. By losing the "what's not in it for me" mentality, and knowing that I'm here to serve others, people tend to think that I'm a great leader. Because of this, it's very important that I stay humble.
Imagine a three legged table. If one of the legs gives way, then the table falls over. It takes all three things noted above in order to succeed. Lose just one, and it all falls over. It is about balancing all three things daily.
Carry on. Sending good vibes your way. 8-)
