A little while later another man stopped and approached woman. Again she was asked what townspeople were like and again she asked traveler what his experience had been where he lived before. "Oh, people were great. Everyone was helpful and supportive – a real community." "You'll find people same way here," she said.
People who are winning at working are like that second traveler. They know in work (and life) you tend to get what you expect. And if they're encumbered with emotional baggage and poor expectations, they get poor results. Instead, they follow advice like Deepak Chopra's, "Always expect best and you'll see that outcome is spontaneously contained in expectation."
People who are winning at working are one suitcase people. Like a seasoned world traveler, they've learned what essentials to pack. They bring to work only those skills and experiences that will positively impact their work and future. They leave rest of their baggage behind. Want to be winning at working? Travel light.
