Adopting a value-added mindset is the antidote to fear and uncertainty, both of which seem to be in ample supply today. Instead of being disadvantaged by tough times, you can actually turn them to your advantage. But it takes a special mindset to make this happen, one that is focused on growth, possibility and a creative, generative spirit that is focused on learning more, creating more and contributing more – not sitting back and waiting for more.
This isn’t a new approach, but it is one that book authors, bloggers and the business media seem to have forgotten. Although the tools and technologies we utilize to get work done have changed dramatically, the principles of success haven’t changed. Success has always been about contribution and service, about doing more than you’re paid to do, and outgrowing your current position and circumstances. It’s about having a system for creative problem solving and noticing new opportunities, which aren’t usually obvious, but they are all around us. It’s about caring enough to bring your very best efforts to the people whom it is your privilege to serve.

It’s time to race to the top
The qualities discussed in this book are still fairly rare – which is why they’re so valuable. You see, there isn’t much traffic on the “extra mile.” So many of your peers are just trying to hang on that they’re missing out on yawning chasms of opportunity all around them – opportunities to solve old problems, create new growth and get the attention of the person in the corner office. In other words, when so few people are approaching their life and work from a value-added mindset, it’s surprisingly easy to stand out and become more successful.
I believe you CAN make a difference in your world – and I look forward to helping you to bring your best gifts to the world through a value-added, creative approach to your work!
I wish you much success and many blessings as you pursue life’s opportunities and overcome its challenges with a new set of eyes, a fresh outlook and determination to be of greater service to your fellow human beings.
