The Key To Our Sucess

Consistency and Personal Development.

I’ve Been Working On TheBask for the last eight and a half years and the only thing that has allowed me to get to the point that I am now is consistency.  The ability to endure all of the trials and tribulations, disappointments and failed business deals.

For myself, personal development has been the main key to obtaining and maintaining this level of consistency at work.

I can remember when I first applied for a job at Gold’s Gym I applied for a job that I was clearly qualified for, overly qualified for at that but for some reason they decided that I was not what they were looking for for the most basic of positions they had.

I still have the email what’s the name of the position this is it a direct excerpt from the email.

I will admit it was off-putting do have received an email actually saying I was not qualified for a position I was over qualified for, so when I got home the first thing that I did was I immediately applied for every management and supervisor position that was available at the time.

the next email I received a little bit different than the other one this is a direct excerpt from the next email I have received.


Hello James,

Congratulations on your new position!  We are happy to have you and are looking forward to your tentative start day on 12/19/2016.


That’s right I had been selected for the night supervisor position.

A position that was already at a higher pay rate and required higher qualifications than the position I had previously been turned down for.

I would never have gotten that job if I had not fought for the position and maintained a clear mindset that I was the one for the job and no one else qualified for this position no matter what anyone else said or thought. No One On Earth Was Going to do The Job Better Than I Was.
