Today, July 30th, 2017, was the day of our company picnic.

There were games, face painting, toys, food, soda, water, and the good people of my company.  I brought my family.  It was after all a family affair.  Workers and their families all gathered at the state park, and enjoyed an afternoon together.

At the beginning of the party, there were awards given out to all the stores, and to individuals.  All of the managers received an award, for what is outstanding about them, and a few of the associates also received awards.  I was one of those few associates who was recognized.

In the beginning of the awards I received a notable mention for my sales work, and it was said that I really busted my rear end out there doing the work.  Then all of the stores got their awards, and then they did the individual awards.  I got one of them!

She said a brief thing about me, that I worked hard and was the best associate of the year, and then they gave me the award.  When I came up and accepted it, the president of the company said that I shouldn’t act like I didn’t deserve it.  I smiled for the picture.

I got this award to commemorate my service to the company in 2016.

Proof Of Success

My award honoring me for my work at the company.

It made me feel good that I was one of the few people honored at the awards.  I know that a lot of people put a lot of sweat and tears into the place, and I know that I won’t go around bragging about how I got an award, as anyone working at my company should get an award.

I just wanted to share this with you to further cement my authority as a success, and so that I have credibility when it comes time for me to advise you on how you can improve your work life.

I’ll leave you with one tip I can give you that might earn you an award:

Suit up and show up.

The rest is hard smart work, loving your customers, working in harmony with your coworkers, among other things that I could go on and on about.

Just wanted to let you know that I’m continuing to have success, and I’m being recognized for it.

Here’s to success of Your own,

Jesse Creel
