Quote: “The same thinking that has led you to where you are is not going to lead you to where you want to go.” – Albert Einstein
Quick, what comes to mind when you think of these people?
There are all experts or authority figures in their chosen field. What about you? When people say your name, what is the first thing that comes to mind?
Are you to the go-to IT person, go-to Power Point presentation person, or the go-to Sales person in your organization? Then guess what, you have expert authority.
Expert authority happens when you become very good at doing something that is important to the company you work for. As a result, people look to you and respect you more because you bring value to the company.
So what do you want to be known for?
If you can’t think of anything, ask your co-workers, and then make it a point to master that skill your company needs and become that go-to person. In order to get paid more and promoted faster, you have to change your thinking. Once you do that you will change the trajectory of your life.
Action Item: Write down one thing you want to master and be known for in your organization.
