The 5 Most Average Industries
FROM THE DESK OF GRANT CARDONE: Average permeates society at all levels, but some industries, in general, are even more average than other industries. I want to highlight some of these today. The industries where it’s extremely difficult to find anyone truly committed to their craft. Of course, there are exceptions, but I am speaking in generalities here. Without further ado, here are…
The top 5 professions where you will find the least amount of amazing
#5 Flight Attendants
The airline industry has become so competitive on price that nobody seems to care about service. They would prefer to drag you down the aisle than take a $1200 hit on a seat they oversold. I know it doesn’t help that people are crammed into the cabin these days like cattle. I’m sure flight attendants must deal with all kinds of complaints every flight. Nevertheless, an energetic, excited, joyful flight attendant that makes the whole experience better is a rare find.
#4 Fast Food
I know because I used to work at McDonald’s. I was there for my $7 an hour and I hated it. Let’s face it, this is still true for most fast food workers today. I hated working at McDonalds. And not because it was McDonald’s. I hated it because it was not lined up with my goals and purposes. The guy who worked next to me loved his job because it aligned with his goals and purposes. I was there because I wanted some spending money. He was the guy making $7 an hour but who wanted to learn the business and open 100 franchises. He didn’t understand why I wasn’t excited, and I didn’t understand why he was. I was fired, and he went on to own franchises.
#3 Retail Associates
Many adults treat this job as I did as a teenager at McDonald’s, as though this work is an illness. Whether they ring you up at the cashier or help you on the sales floor, it’s a chore for them to be there helping you and often they will not hide it. It doesn’t matter if you go to Sears or Payless Shoes, the local clothing boutique or Walmart, the experience is the same: lousy. Most of the time you have to get their attention if you need assistance and interrupt their time as they play on their phone.
