My work ethic is the same now as it was when I made $5.25/hr. working at Zaxby’s. Of course, I’ve developed a lot professionally, but my standard of excellence never wavered.
Because I knew Zaxby’s was one step
On a staircase to something much bigger
And throughout my journey, here’s what I’ve learned: It’s easy to say, “That doesn’t fall into my job description” or “They don’t pay me enough to do that”, but that kind of attitude will limit you.
Don’t be afraid to go above and beyond the call of duty. Put in the work without seeking the recognition. Be content and be patient; because as Rumi says, “What you seek is seeking you.” But it cannot find you if you’re dodging hard work and consoling yourself with excuses. Show up every day, give your best and the rest will manifest.
