Success does not come easily. It is something that has to be strived for and a struggle has to be there in order to gain applause and achieve one’s goals. Hence, for students who are still in the process of getting an education, it is extremely important that they realize what some of the rules are that can lead to success and not consider it as something that can happen by chance. In very rare cases that may be so, but it is due to hard work and consistency and a great many other factors that lead to success.
The previous week was very demanding, from a business point of view! On top of that, I had to meet a friend of mine because he was asked me for an appointment! He wanted to discuss some problems he was facing in his job! As a general rule, I try to avoid meetings (of all kinds), especially at the periods of demanding work! But he was a friend (and a client), and I was really interesting in listening to what he had to say!
Personal development is a constant discipline and takes a lot of time. To know how you are going to develop yourself is one of the main survival skills today! Usually, you start from yourself and try to see your strengths and limitation in relation to your main life’s goals, your values and your core principles!
Personal growth, though is not an easy venture. You need to clear many things about your musts and wants and to find efficient strategies and ways to support you in your journey! And one of the main things you need in order to achieve your goals are resources (money, time and energy included!).
Resources are anything and everything help you achieve your objectives! And one crucial resource for developing yourself is the constant learning of new strategies, knowledge, skills, how-tos, ideas, approaches, hacks and tips that would lead you more effective to your chosen path!
Gateless is a book about personal development and resources! It is an excellent book, written by two excellent authors, Sebastian Marshall & Kai Zau, wishing to clarify difficult theoretical concepts and provide a simple roadmap and a model for the achievement of everyone’s goals!
An excellent reading and a must read for all the people dealing with leadership, strategy, effectiveness and personal growth topics!
Running a business is hard work. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re managing a multi-million pound enterprise, you need to be willing to put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into making a success of your company. But what if your own worn-in habits are actually hindering your progress?
“What makes a good entrepreneur?” was the topic of the discussion! “Who is an entrepreneur“, it was my answer! I was in my mastermind group trying to invigorate the spirit of some of my associates. I was a “First among equals“ (Primus inter pares) in a specific group of people and the one, admittedly, with the lesser skills and abilities among the participants! I am the person who want to know the “ropes and ties” (so to speak) about what’s happening! One of my habits in such gathering is to take something ordinary and make it an example (forging a connection!) about something else, with greater significance (according to my opinion).
Anyone who has children or has spent any time with children knows that there seems to always be a double standard between what we tell them and what we as adults really do. Even if you have no children around you now, you were a child yourself at some point. How many times did you hear one of your parents tell you to “do as I say, not as I do”? Unfortunately, some of the inherent behaviors we had as children were lectured out of us. Between our upbringing and schooling, we lost or forgot many of the most precious principles that we were all born with. If we can gain back the following five principles, our Leadership success as an adult will grow substantially.
