“Personal value is the magnet that attracts all good things into our lives. The greater our value, the greater our reward. Since the solution for having more is becoming more, we must be in constant search for new ways to increase our value”. – Jim Rohn
If you read some of the best writing in the self-improvement and success field you will see this idea repeated. Personal success comes from who you are and what you do. We are compensated for the relative value we provide. The more value we can bring to the market place the more compensation we receive.
If you measure success in ways other than monetary compensation the formula continues to be true. Want to be an influential leader? Want to be a valued researcher or scientist? Want to create great works of art? Whatever you want to do, and do exceptionally well, requires that you constantly improve yourself. You have to learn more, build on your talents, develop your skills.
If you stand out because you work hard, work smart, contribute more, know more and create more you will attain that success.
No one achieves success by being mediocre or even average. Success comes from being outstanding in a way that serves other people and is valued. Success is born from what you can contribute. What you can contribute comes from what you are – what abilities, skills, and efforts you bring to the table.
This has never been more true than it is today in a globally competitive market place of ideas and commerce. However you measure success it derives from what you can contribute.
If you have a job, trade or profession you must develop your skills in that area so that you perform at the highest level possible. In any area of success you must continuously read more, learn more, study more. You must continuously improve yourself.
Learn how you can achieve more and realize your goals in my book, The Success Essentials.
