#ThursdayThought – Work On Yourself
“The key to becoming successful is to work harder on yourself than on your business” – Jim Rohn
Working hard on your business means putting in extra time, overcoming obstacles and having an exquisite knowledge of your industry.
But when we consider the above quote from noted entrepreneur and leadership expert Jim Rohn, we would have to apply what those success traits mean for working on yourself as a leader.
In that regard, ask yourself:
- Do you take extra time to read, examine your opportunity areas, self-develop?
- How hard to you work on mastering yourself, overcoming your weak areas, admitting you can get better?
- How much knowledge do you have of your shortcomings, of what others know about you, and what can make you more impactful as a leader?
If you’re not sure the answers to these questions, it means you most definitively need to start working harder on yourself. And if you know the answers, you most assuredly are already spending that time wisely in self-development,
Spending time working on your own self-development in making yourself a better person as well as a leader always pays dividends that will more than be realized in your business.
Work smarter, not harder, by working harder on yourself.
