“…I’ve got a THANKLESS job, and no-one appreciates all that I do for the company…”

"I get no respect."

“I get no respect.”

I’ve got a THANKLESS job, and no-one appreciates all that I do for the company.  Have you ever felt that way; I know that I have? It doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re not appreciated; that’s for sure.  I’ve seen a lot of different techniques employed to develop a person for more responsibility.  Some use, or over-use, kindness; others push you to the brink of resignation.  Some bosses want you to suffer; to pay the dues for advancement, etc.  Personally, I take it as a personal challenge to have at least one person that I can work very close with, and several more that I won’t spend as much time with.  In the first scenario, I’m trying to develop that individual to do a specific job; and working close with him would be paramount to his future and the welfare of the company.  I employ strict rules of engagement and leave no stone un-turned to develop that individual, and I expect that he will make MANY DIFFICULT SACRIFICES to enrich his opportunity.  I require complete surrender. The dues are HIGH when one works in my clubhouse.  But, the rewards are many and significant.  This is the same such scenario that Jesus puts His followers through…He offers them LIFE EVER LASTING.  So, “Take up your cross and follow Me,”  means your willingness to follow Jesus has no limits.  For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?  Luke 9:24-25  Although the call is tough, the reward is matchless.     Blessings… cjlb…12/31/13 jack swing Wave
