10. Be Humble
9. Be Passionate and Determined
Lose Yourself – Eminem
If you do not have passion for what you do you will not succeed for the long term. We also must be determined and refuse to take no for an answer no matter how many times we get knocked down. “You better lose yourself in the music, the moment, You own it, you better never let it go, You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow, This opportunity comes once in a lifetime”
8. Do More With Less
It’s My Life – Bon Jovi
We all need the motivation sometimes to try harder and put in the extra effort. It’s a great rock song to get you pumped up. “It’s my life. It’s now or never. I ain’t gonna live forever”.
7. Build A Positive Team and Family Spirit
Love Can Build A Bridge – The Judds
We picked this song because it is sung by a mother and daughter duo. Love can also build a bridge and respect between two people. IT creates a family atmosphere in the workplace.
6. Build Open and Honest Relationships with Communication
5. Pursue Growth and Learning
Learning To Fly – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Learning something new and challenging yourself can be difficult. However, these are needed to grow as a person. This is our favorite core value on the list and we must challenge ourselves to be better. “I’m learning to fly, but I ain’t got wings, Coming down is the hardest thing, I’m learning to fly, around the clouds, But what goes up must come down, I’m learning to fly”
4. Be Adventurous, Creative, and Open-Minded
Free – Zac Brown Band
One of the greatest adventures any human can make is to take an unplanned road trip. Let the road take you where you want to go. This is what America is all about – being free to do what you want to do. Road trips are adventurous, you must have an open mind as to what to see and where to go, and you also must be creative to find places to eat and sleep. “Just as free,
Free as we’ll ever be, So we live in our old van, Travel all across this land”
3. Create Fun and a Little Weirdness
“Weird Al” Yankovic – White & Nerdy
Weird Al is the epitome of this core value. He stepped outside the box and made a name for himself by producing parody songs. The White and Nerdy songs have more than seventy million views on YouTube.
2. Embrace and Drive Change
Changes – David Bowie
There are many interpretations on this song. No matter, wether you make changes yourself or not, the world will be changing around you. Therefore, yo mus be in the forefront of change or be left behind.
1. Deliver WOW Through Service
I Want Candy – Bow Wow Wow
First and foremost the word Wow is in the group’s name. A great way to create a wow with your customers is to give them candy. Banks do this in stars by giving customers suckers. All kids know to get suckers at the bank.
