Success in work and life
Success in work and life has a lot to do with how strong your Self-Leadership is.
I believe that you are aiming for great success, in work and life. Self-leadership is a big and broad concept. But there are various other aspects of self that I think you should also be looking at.
I have written about Self-Leadership before. The foundation of that being Self-Knowledge and Self-Awareness. But even more, when you really lead yourself things start to happen. Once you are leading yourself you can lead others. And various results, if that is what you are after.
Self-leadership also helps you with defining Success for yourself. True success means success in all areas of your life. Success in one area of your life should not be at the cost of success in other areas of your life. You should be going for the full 360° Success.
The Beatles sang All You Need Is Love. Well at least for many there could be more kindness towards oneself. Be kind and loving towards yourself, gives you much stronger and more positive energy. It makes it easier for you to be you, both in your life and your career. It makes you better at playing the game. Loving and respecting yourself should make you want to be your best self. To hold yourself to highest standards. Not giving you excuses or any discount for yourself.
Maybe no news here. But there are scientific researches out there that show the importance of Self-Confidence. Both when it comes to wellbeing and success. With self-confidence you know what you want. You are able to make decisions. And better yet, turn your decisions into actions. You know what you want and what you are capable of, so go for it.
One of the things that successful people have in common is self-discipline. No matter how different their success may be or what they believe to be success. Being able to delay gratification is a key here. To be able to resist short term gratification to achieve long term success. Whatever you are dealing with or doing. Even though discipline does not sound fun, it is after all so much more fun than regrets.
Even though your success in work and life has also a lot do with other external factors I believe you have it more in your hands than you may be realizing.
So if you want Success in work and life. Success in your career and your community. Success in your environment and finances. Success in your health and your relationships. Then you are your key to all the Success you are after, however your Success may look like. Through Self-Leadership, Self-Love, Self-Confidence and Self-Discipline.
