If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
We are all blessed with a huge potential. We must understand this fact and unlock our potential. However, most people waste their precious time by thinking about their unpleasant past which cannot be changed, and worrying about their future which cannot be predicted. What we have now is the present. Hence, we must make use of the present to unlock our hidden potential to achieve amazing success in life, and help others grow in their lives.
Great leaders are great learners, and help build the next generation of leaders. Hence, you must grow as a leader first to groom others as leaders.
Most people think that they cannot become leaders, when in fact, everybody is a leader. The mother who leads at home; the father who takes responsibility; and the janitor who delivers his goods with excellence is a leader. Leaders are the ones who lead from front by taking responsibility. They spread fame during successes and take blame during failures.
Hence, take responsibility to lead from the front. Realize your hidden potential as everybody is born as a genius, and nobody is born as a stupid. Develop a positive, right, and strong attitude to excel in your life. Contribute your best. Emphasize excellence regardless of the area of activity you are into. Emphasize means, not ends. Keep people before profit. Make the people around you special, and help them dream and achieve big.
Time is very precious. Whether you are rich or poor, you are blessed with time. Make use of it wisely. You have only one life. Hence, use your time judiciously to provide meaning to your life.
Balance your personal, professional and social life. Trifurcate your goals into three categories such as personal, professional and social goals. Set these goals based on your passions and value system.
Here is the way to go about setting these goals in your life. Ask yourself what you want to achieve in your personal life. Find out your strengths and weaknesses, and set your personal goals based on your passions and strengths. Identify the careers in which you are passionate about, and set your professional goals accordingly.
Finally, what value would you like to add to society? What would you like to be remembered for? And set your social goals accordingly.
Surround yourself with positive people to build a better world. Remember that knowledge is more important than money. Hence, share your knowledge to make a difference to the world.
Work for satisfaction, not for recognition. Remember, satisfaction is the end-product while recognition is the by-product. Be passionate about what you do. Don’t worry about setbacks. Think out-of-the box to achieve success in your personal, professional and social life.
Be a continuous learner and take feedback constantly to grow in life. As long as you love and learn, you are young. The day you stop loving people and learning things, you become old.
