Wow! I sent the below post Recruiters Get Off Your Butts! to my Ezine subscribers this week and received some harsh responses. I did receive far more positive quotes like “I needed to hear that” and “thanks for the motivation Mike!” as well as “you tell ’em Mike!!!”, etc.
However, I did get one back that said “Pathetic”. Nothing else. You know what! I got a response, something triggered in him to send that to me. If you read the post, it describes 2 mindsets we as recruiters and recruiting firm owners can CHOOSE to have right now. I didn’t accuse my readers of being “victims”, but, Mr. ‘Pathetic’ above must be one and doesn’t like his concious calling him out on it.
Hey, I don’t control your choices, I am priviledged you choose to read this and take that responsibility seriously. Again, I highly recommend T. Harv Ecker’s Book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind as a quick inexpensive way to help you adjust your mindset in tough times.
Here’s a quick excerpt I found very helpful:
“If you are willing to do what is easy, life will be hard. But, if you are willing to do what is hard, life will be easy. Rich People don’t base their actions on what’s easy and convenient; that way of life is reserved for the poor and most of the middle class.”
