Our desire for this book is to inspire, motivate, educate, and support you in whatever your walk of life, and to help you become invaluable and make a positive difference. Being invaluable takes work—it may be pleasant or challenging, and rewarding work, but the effort must be expended, usually every day. “Becoming Invaluable” will talk all about the work to become invaluable, and the five personal attributes it requires. Regardless of your vocation, career, or path in life, you can enhance your outcomes and the experiences along the way through the application of the methods you will find throughout this book.
One of the common characteristics of the authors and the nine individuals in our spotlight profiles is a view that “Failure is not an Option.” We all fail at times, so the question is what provides the stamina and resilience or to succeed in spite of any failure or setback. The answers lie in you and the pages in “Becoming Invaluable” help you learn about the application and discipline to make it happen in a full and complete fashion in your life.
