Self-improvement is not a mystery; anyone can do it. You may have to take on goals that are a little beyond your capability. It might hurt and you might fail—but most people don’t. Instead, they find that a life worth living is a life fully explored.
If it’s time to start pushing your personal boundaries—to find out if you’ve truly reached your potential—then watch my first Management Tip this week, on self-improvement.
The second tip brings us face to face with the genetic lottery. We’re all born with certain traits we didn’t ask for—and those we didn’t especially want. Big deal. Successful people don’t waste their life lamenting the hand they were dealt. They choose instead to be defined by their will, desire, and determination. They’re honest about what they know, what they don’t know, and what they don’t want to know—and they strive to use this insight. The second tip this week will help you understand what to do with your strengths and weaknesses.
The first tip gives you a push. The second one gives you perspective. Good luck! And check back next week for more Management Tips.
