Which Are Your Values for Success?

As an exemplification of the checklist presented here, I want to share how I apply some of the concepts. First, each person has his or her own values for success. The values of successful businessmen, they say, are leadership abilities, communication skills, the delegation of tasks, a vast network of people known, the ability to work hard, team playing, enthusiasm, strategic vision, uprightness, analysis, loyalty, direction, and sincerity.

Tony Robbins talks about the seven key traits of great winners as being the passion built on motivation, the faith made on perspective, the strategy built on techniques and methods, the clarity of the values based on alignment, the energy produced on equilibrium, the charisma built on the power of personal branding, the communication excellence built on efficient techniques.

Your goals are essential for you and for others. Plan, manage, monitor, and evaluate your goals well. You will only receive the results for the expectations you envisioned. Live your purpose and enjoy it. The trip matters more than the result. You will only get the result if the trip is well set. Work smart, or else you’ll work for others.

Invest in planning to gain abilities, not knowledge (I will write about improving your abilities in a few days). Knowledge is everywhere, and it’s getting cheaper. Those who can search, find and apply the proper knowledge also have access to the resources that matter.

Give what you feel to who is appropriate. Don’t expect anything in return; everything you will receive will be a gift, not a disappointment. Use your skills, abilities, knowledge, and resources every day, serving others (not like this). Don’t let anyone tell you how much you’re worth. Slavery ended. People are worth more than what they can produce. You only have these resources for a short period of time; make them serve others and grow. Take care of your needs without hurting others.

This is the only way you will not only obtain your goals but you will also sustain them. Keep your eyes on the prize! Think, act and talk in a positive, affirmative manner. Beware of what you wish and what you concentrate on. Focus follows attention, and energy follows intention. Every word you say, everything you read, speak and hear, creates an I M P A C T, and you will have an effect. May it be an effect you expected (or even better, planned) and not one you just suspected.

Ask yourself if you like and trust the people you get energy from. Ask yourself if they respect you and if they have shared values. It’s challenging to live with or learn from someone who despises you or has your opposite values! The people who genuinely know you should believe in you.

The professional values which matter the most for me are development (beyond the security, beyond the comfort area), efficiency (creating a lot of quality with a few resources), and sharing (offering tools you can use).

Here are some limits of acting according to these values:

1. I will not share something for free if I don’t think you will be motivated to use it. I will only share stuff I think you can use for your information and development. I will not use all of my resources, but only some of them.

2. I will not work for organizations (clients or employers) having the goals I’m working for, against any of my values, or against civil or human rights liberties. I include here all forms of abuse depicted in Debug Your Mind

I would like to send myself the message: develop your personal brand. The message I would like to send to my readers is as follows:

Be your brand.
