It’s Better to be a Leader than a Boss
In management, there are two kinds of people: a leader and a boss. Bosses use their position to meet their personal goals and are more interested in what serves their best interest. Furthermore, bosses do not command respect they demand respect. On the other hand, leaders command respect by putting their people before themselves. Leaders use the respect they have earned to meet the goals that they have set together with their team. If you put the interests of others first and act by example, you and your followers will be able to accomplish anything you want.
Aim for Win-Win Situations
Do not settle for a plan that has a win-lose outcome. Strive for a win-win outcome. Aim to achieve a win for all stakeholders- you, your clients, your employees, and your society. The moment you refrain from accepting win-lose situations, you will find the best solution every time you are dealing with a surprising issue or new client. This mentality will boost your business, team, and reputation to great heights.
Listen More than You Speak
The reason you have one mouth and two years is for you to apply them in that specific proportion. When you speak less, your words have more power and your appearance is more authoritative, and your audience is more eager to listen to you.
Maintain Balance in Your Life
Life is all about balance. No money in the world can buy you health or a loving family. Conversely, a loving family and good health cannot compensate for money. To maintain balance in life you must spend the same amount of time at work, at home with your family, and on your health. Ensure you advance all areas of your life and improve equal bits of your wealth, health, personal growth, and relationships.
Find Your Passion
The key to success is to find your passion. Although there are many passionate people who are not successful, very few people succeed without passion. Determine what ignites a fire in you and gives you a reason to rise up every morning. Look for something that makes you sacrifice the exciting things in life. Without a passion, your life will be full of monotony and boring drudgery.
