Master a rare skill
“Don’t wish it was easier wish you were better. Don’t wish for fewer problems wish for more skills. Don’t wish for fewer challenge wishes for, more wisdom.”—Jim Rohn
You all must have heard a proverb, “Be so good that they can’t ignore you”. But the fact of the matter is, how can one claim to be so good? If you think long enough, you will come to the conclusion that confidence is the key to this being true. To be confident you need to be ahead of your game. This is the time that a rare skill will help you achieve this feat.
“Once you’ve developed rare and valuable skills, you’re now in a rare position to chart your own path”.
Always concentrate on acquiring new passions and skills. Remember, if you acquire an ability that only a few possess, it will make you move closer to your goal and realize it sooner than you initially thought.
Invest in your health, relationships, and your aspirations
How does he become a doer rather than a dreamer?
As easy it may sound, but the plain truth is by investing in your skills and increasing it by 10x. The skills that you developed over the years will require constant hard work as well. You will face failures, but your job is to be persistent and move forward. The first thing that will come to your rescue is your ‘Health’. You can’t overspend on yourself. Eat the highest quality food possible, follow a regime, hit the gym often and try to be happy always.
You can find a few health-boosting superfoods online these days. You can give these a try!
People say ‘I am self-made’. But do you really think it to be true?
Have you ever heard a successful gymnast say that he has trained and become a world-class athlete by his own? Is that possible?
No, you can’t become successful on your own. For a gymnast, a great coach, support staff, and his family members play a vital role.
Same is in your case. Keep your relationships strong and try to learn from a mentor. Without one, you will be directed less and eventually burn out.
In the amazing book, WRITE IT DOWN MAKE IT HAPPEN: Knowing What You Want and Getting It, Dr. Henriette Anne Klauser explains the magic of writing down your goals and dreams.
“Keep a diary or a notebook handy always. Write down anything that is of substance. Even random thoughts are invited”.
After so start this practice, you will see how things make more sense. Our sub cautious mind is so powerful that it imagines what it really wants. That is why we have random thoughts. If you revisit these thoughts often in the form of what you wrote, it is possible that a few things start making sense. It is you, who has the answer to all the questions.
Believe in giving
“The more you give, the more you have”.
It is observed that people who tend to give are the most happiest. I have spent a lot of money to become a part of an elite group of people. In the end, the friendships and mentorship I paid for has got me where I am right now!
You have got to believe that all that you are paying for, will return in some or the other way.
For an example, you buy a book worth a 1000 bucks. Do you ever go back to stall after reading the book saying give me back my money because you have read the book.
I see people do the same thing. It easy to lose track of the reality. There are certain activities you need to spend on and wait for it to reap results in the future. Pay for mentorship or even pay to be in an elite group of people if you have to!
Effective networking isn’t a result of luck – it requires hard work and persistence. – Lewis Howes
Have faith that ultimately your investments will bear fruit. But always be aware and invest in the right group of people. If you have a mentor, do speak to him about what you are getting into.
Always, try to give, while you can take. It is kind of investment that will help you in tough times. As this investment will earn you connections. You will feel that anything is possible, you just have to ask.
Be persistent, not foolish
“If something is difficult it does not mean it is worth doing”.
Every person has to follow his own path to success. You can chip down your path and follow simple steps to reach your goals eventually. Be persistent and honest towards your goals. But if it is taking more time than usual, it is time to change your approach. Maybe there is something that you have miscalculated, or the path you have chosen isn’t any good. Be flexible in your mind and operations.
Follow your passion
I strongly feel if you follow your passion you are close to living. Having a passion helps restore sanity in your life. You have something to look up to.
“Passion is a powerful feeling of enthusiasm. It is only felt when you desire something badly”.
During my career, I have felt a strong desire to bring something new to the table every time. Seeking new technologies, latest gadgets and health foods have been my passion. I have built my business around it. Each and every day I get up, I feel motivated to do the same thing again without losing enthusiasm. This happens because I am passionate about what I do. Find what’s important to you and follow it.
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson
These were some of my observations while conducting business, in relationships and introspecting. I followed certain steps in order to succeed. Do not follow me, forge your own way. But, do take a leaf out of my book and use to your advantage.
