What are you doing to improve yourself?
It can be very easy to forget to improve yourself first. With so much pressure to lead others and accomplish great things, we often lose sight of how we can really achieve greatness. Remember that you are never too old or too young to improve yourself and grow your mind. What are you doing each day to get better? In the #CJJblog this week, I give you some tips and tricks on how to focus on growing yourself first, and others second. Enjoy.
- Growth mindset. Continue to grow your mind. Read books, listen to podcasts, watch videos, and take classes to always improve. Remember that commencement actually means the beginning of something. How do you grow your mind?
- Mastermind group. Whether you meet in person or on the phone, utilize the expertise of others to your advantage and learn from other like-minded individuals. Create an idea exchange consistently and help others grow as best you can. Do you have a mastermind group?
- Recommend and praise others. Be consistent with this as well. Seek to help and aid others before asking them for assistance. Give before you can receive. Reach out to others and say congratulations for life events or birthdays. This is a great way to stay in touch.
- Add value to others in networks. Sending a link or article to others in your group is a great way to add value and create the notion you are the expert in that area. How do you add value to groups?
- Have expertise. What are you an expert on? Are you creating content? Make it a study to continue to keep the expert status. Others will begin to seek your opinion on this topic, which creates tremendous value.
- Show gratitude. Always seek to show gratitude toward others for their accomplishments. Always remember to keep an attitude of gratitude.
