1. If What You Are Doing Is Not Working Change Your Approach
When I was in school I always had a small group of close friends but I
never found it easy meeting new people. By the time I reluctantly
entered the work force it was clear that my communication skills were
limiting my progress.
The fact that I was as capable or even more capable than my peers
meant little when I was unable to create a favorable impression.
I needed to become a lot more confident, dynamic and charming.
And I did. I changed my approach once I learned how to by studying
advanced communication skills.
What would have happened if I did not change my approach? Year after
year I would have become more and more frustrated and bitter.
I could easily have adopted the world view that nothing ever works out
for me and before long I would have spent most of my time with other
Things do not change until you change. Doing nothing is not an option
in case you actually think it is. The trend will continue and reach
its natural conclusion until you change the trend.
Decide to change and look for answers. The clock is ticking. And the
time to begin is now.
2. Learn From People Who Get Results
It is easy to get advice when you have a problem. Everyone has an
opinion! However unless that person has proven expertise in that area
be careful about following his advice.
On the other hand when you want to become better at something all you
really need to do is to open your eyes. Who do you know who excels at
that activity? Who has already solved that problem in their own life?
Recently I was walking around town with a friend who invests in
property. Now a lot of people own their own home and even a second
home. This man is different. He owns several million dollars worth of
residential property and a hotel.
Maybe he would be a good person to talk to if you want to learn how to
make money in property!
As we walked around I asked him lots and lots of questions. He is very
patient with me! I was amazed how much I could learn in minutes just
by asking the right questions of someone with the right answers.
3. Invest In Your Future
I have always been fascinated at how quickly my life can change once I
learn and use new distinctions. Think about it. The only thing
stopping you from succeeding in any area of life is a lack of
knowledge. And if you commit to learning you can bridge that gap.
Let us say your goal is to be the CEO of the largest company in your
town or city.
What is stopping you?
Knowledge and skills. And these can be learned. You can acquire the
knowledge and mental skills, the people skills and the ability to
Obviously you will choose a goal that will make you happy and avoid
occupations that you are not suited to. You will naturally favor goals
that build on your interests and aptitudes.
How are you going to quickly acquire the skills you need to move ahead
in your life? The fastest way is to invest money in courses and books
that reveal the strategies you need.
Consider how much money you spend each year to service your car. The
cost of oil changes, new tires and other repairs. Not to mention
Do you spend this much on servicing and upgrading your skills? And No
this is not the responsibility of your employer. Your company only
spends on you to achieve the corporate goals not your goals.
The first time I attended a huge three day personal development
seminar it was with several thousand people. And I learned a lot in
the car park! I noticed at 3 A.M. when the first day ended that the
car park was full of very expensive luxury cars. Porsche, Rolls Royce,
Jaguar, Bentley and Ferrari.
It was then that I understood what separates the most successful
people from everyone else. A lifetime commitment to learning and a
willingness to invest in their own development.
Do you want to step up and join those at the top of your field? It is
easier than you think because most people prefer to do nothing and
hope that things will somehow get better.
Take action and invest today in a bright new future.
