Identifying solid, profitable opportunities and then balancing the risks and rewards associated with these opportunities takes special talents. People involved in the oil and gas/energy industry, like the Doers above, live and breath this reality as they push ahead with continued commitment, competence and character. They're definitely contributing to something much bigger than themselves, something that says the future is now for the U.S. as a country, individual communities and personal lives.
Operating productively and safely, deep into and on the earth's surface demands the best in research, engineering and design. It requires production know-how to deliver on exacting specifications with people who are dedicated to doing things right the first time. Doers in the oil and gas/energy industry know that this is the only way to operate. In fact, this industry is at least on par with many other highly technical/safety driven industries where the pursuit of excellence is absolutely mandatory.
Knowing how to make money in challenging, complex industries is essential. In the oil and gas/energy industry, business disciplines such as strategic planning, economies of scale, logistics and business partnerships are practiced on a regular basis. Savvy Doers understand these types of things and with the privilege to operate in a free market country like the U.S, the best ideas and solutions surface, which means that end-users enjoy products and services beyond their wildest imaginations.
This is where the hard work of Doers shines and pays dividends. The identification, development and productive use of oil and gas/energy creates millions of good jobs, establishes careers and changes lives. With responsible access to these resources, the U.S. thrives in numerous ways, including advances in consumer products, transportation and housing. When opportunities are created among people who care about the U.S., great things happen within and outside the boundaries of the country.
Doers recognize that when the U.S. controls a substantial supply of oil and gas/energy, its position in world markets is strengthened. As raw materials, oil and gas are integral to the manufacturing of hundreds of consumer products, which the world needs. An abundant supply of these resources allow these products to be produced more economically in the U.S. and therefore, offered more competitively to buyers across the world, which supports the country's financial standing.
As a sovereign nation interested in controlling its own destiny, it's essential that the U.S. can address the safety, security and daily needs of its citizens. Dependence on others for oil and gas weakens the country's ability to do that in a reliable fashion. Doers realize that for various reasons, strategic alliances with other countries across the globe are important. However, when leadership is required and decisions have to be made, self-reliance through oil and gas is a great asset.
