Take note of everything you can this week to prepare for your future job opportunities – and get ready for your INTERVIEW next week! And now a word from James Brown! Making it Real – Your weekly Activity
James Brown delivered a message at the Joe Gibbs’ Youth for Tomorrow Burgundy & Gold Banquet that I want to share with you this week. Youth for Tomorrow is a New Life Center for troubled teens. For many of these youth, it is the last stop before jail. At the New Life Center in Manassas, these young people get a new lease on their young lives… James Brown (TV sports host) had seven points to share with the audience: Develop good communication skills– not just speaking, but listening and writing. It might be hip to engage in slang, but you need the King’s English. Dress and attire makes a statement about you before you open your mouth. Be presentable. Keep it clean and neat. You need to be a professional. Be prompt. Timeliness is so very important particularly as you get ready for the world of work. It says you are dependable and reliable. Thirst and hunger for knowledge. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can’t learn because of how challenging your background was or that you can’t do it. Deal with adversity. The Bible says everyone will experience trials and tribulations, they will prepare you for the next level that will be bigger and better. Develop interpersonal skills working in a diverse environment. There is strength in diversity. Everybody has a God-given gift – look for that in each person. When you are done working, you can have fun. Successful organizations are those whose members enjoy one another when you are doing well. James Brown – Sports commentator
