I have a story to tell. There was a time when the importance of personal development for me was zero. I believed that it was all a load of rubbish and that all we had to do was to carry on as we had been taught and trained and life would pan out anyway. How wrong I was! Since I have worked on myself, the importance of personal development has become more evident every day.
I believe to be a great leader you need 4 fundamental characteristics of leadership that will put you into a great position as a leader. There are many things to consider when you develop your business and leadership skills, but these 4 things are among the most important in order to lay the foundation to your leadership.
What floats your boat? When you’re out to find a way to be achieving success, what better than to find something you are passionate about and then work with people and a business that truly inspires you?
When going online with my business, the biggest hurdle I found when creating content was getting the ideas. After several business ventures that have not been a true success, I have found something that I have a true passion for and something I get inspired by. The people I work with inspire me, the stories inspire me and my focus on my goals inspire me. Now I don’t seem to have any problems with content.
What you give is what you get, give and you will receive or any other analogy of the same thing is completely relevant to where we are today. I don’t know if you’re religious or not, but with it being in the Pentecost Season in UK, it’s all about gifts and giving. The gift that God gave on this day according to all Christian belief is of the Holy Spirit. This made me think about how much online business is based around gifts and giving. It doesn’t matter what your religion, the principle of what I’m going to discuss is the same. That’s to give FREELY.
There are so many of us who have struggled at some time in our lives, some who are still struggling. Even though things may be difficult, we can make lifestyle choices that will set our mind into a better position and help us progress in life and business.
This may be something you have seen or heard before, but it’s always useful to keep it in mind:
Ask as if and go as though…………….
(Ask as if you expect to have what you want and go as though you already have it!)
This sets your mind towards more abundance and more positive thoughts, ensuring you are in a better place to work and make progress.
One of the most important things to think of when building your knowledge and skills for your business is where you look for your sources of information. Who do you listen to when you have a problem to solve and you look for the right advice?
There are some who, when they have a financial problem will talk to their friend or family and ask what they would do. Problem being the people they tend to ask have the same problem themselves and therefore don’t have any solution so everybody stays the same.
Because of the nature of information overload these days, it’s very easy to have the feeling “I am overwhelmed”! When you are doing research for your business and maybe going online to see what you can do so that you can choose the right thing for you, there is so much to think of it’s quite understandable that you will think this way.
When you think rich first you position your mind and whole thought process that will give you the right poise and confidence that will emanate from you before you take action. Two things come to mind when I consider this think rich positioning:
- “A rich man has a rich man’s thoughts before he takes a rich man’s action” Wallace Wattles
- Be + Think + DO = HAVE
