The work we do is a reflection of who we are!
If we’re sloppy at it, it’s because we’re sloppy inside.
If we’re late at it, it’s because we’re late inside.
If we’re bored by it, it’s because we’re bored inside, with ourselves, not with the work.
The most menial work can be a piece of art when done by an artist.
So the job here is not outside of ourselves, but inside of ourselves.
How we do our work becomes a mirror of how we are inside.

But what you didn’t know is, that you’re coming into an Intense personal development program.
Because “The way you do one thing is the way you do everything”
You are being shaken up to the core in this business.
One of our loan officers went to his Rabbi before he came Into the business.
He was still learning In Kollel all day, and he asked him if he should enter the workforce.
And the Rabbi said to him:
”Yes you are ready for it, what the business world will give you in terms of working on your Midos, traits, personalities, behaviors, habits, no amount of learning in Kollel can ever give you”
