Changing your mindset can make you successful.

But How Successful People Think (2009) proves that success is a mindset, not a personality trait. And it’s something anyone can cultivate!
Are you Indispensable?
A typical workplace consists of two teams: management and labor. Traditionally, the management delegates tasks and the labor follows simple instructions to complete those tasks. This was an incredibly efficient way to do business when people worked in factories and their jobs didn’t require them to go above and beyond. The problem, however, is that these people were easily replaceable. And while you may not be working in a factory today, are you dispensable? What makes you different from every other employee willing to do your job? Well, today there is a third team in the workplace: the linchpins. These are the people who figure out what to do when there are no instructions to follow. They love their work, pour their best selves into it, challenge their peers, and turn each day into an art. The best part? You have what it takes to become a linchpin too - to become indispensable. As you read, you’ll learn the steps you should take to become indispensable, how to discover your inner artist, and why genuine gift-giving is key to becoming indispensable.
