A local motivational speaker, entrepreneur and Honda retiree urged Indian Lake seniors to adopt an abundant mindset and a positive attitude as they approach graduation.
Chris Conley recently spoke to students about his career path. He gave them three pieces of advice:
He pointed to the many different kinds of positions he held during his more than 30 years at Honda, including purchasing, engineering, human resources and more. Conley says he was able to work his way up in the company because he thought outside the box and was willing to go the extra mile.
Chase passion, not pension
Conley used results from a recent study to show students that people who are doing what they love are more motivated to work hard and in turn, earn more. He urged the young people to learn skills that interest and excite them.
Never stop learning
“I want you to work harder on yourself than you do at your job!” Conley told students. He clarified, saying he wants them to do their best at their job, but to use their downtime to develop their education and skills to position themselves for advancement.
Conley’s visit is part of a joint effort between area high schools, industries and the Logan County Chamber of Commerce designed to expose students to job opportunities and careers available in our area.
