3. Remind People Who You Are
Weeks ago Obama said, “If folks wanna pop off…” which essentially translated to, “Don’t mess with me or my people.” Sometimes (more times than not) you’ll have to remind people who you are and if you’re religious you’ll definitely have to remind people whose you are. People will test your patience, question your role, and your ability to do your job. With style and grace (see #1) simply remind those who seem to have forgotten that you’re not the one. You’re on assignment and you’re here to complete a mission.
