I’d love to hear Michael Buffer live on the mic as he smoothly recites his signature phrase. Only this time Buffer would slightly modify the words from LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE to ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLE?
You know I’m a former television journalist. For that reason…I tend to open my blogs with anecdotes and colorful illustrations. As I prepared to write this post…I couldn’t get Buffer’s voice out of my head. So, I went with it. And will ask you the question again.
ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLE? Its a valid question. We are just weeks away from a new calendar year. And you may have identified dreams, goals, and mountains to conquer by the end of 2014. Of course, you will apply for certain jobs. Add your name to the list of contenders for the corner office. Aim for certain goals. Secure the meeting with the VIP.
ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLE? Being ready to rumble means more than just making it to the corner office. You should be ready to rumble from the moment you are granted the opportunity. Take on the entrepreneurial spirit. Own every aspect of your job. Be responsible. Embrace diversity. Dance with opportunities. Fight adversity with integrity, honesty, authenticity, compassion, and resilience.
