Can I help you achieve your biggest goals? It is so much fun and incredibly rewarding.
Reaching goals is a significant milestone for people. It’s the foundation to building a strong self-confidence and self-worth. Setting goals is the easy part, accomplishing goals requires a lot of hard work. I want to share with you a key personal characteristic or value most successful people exhibit. This value has played an important role on my journey and it needs to be shared so you can tap into its immense power.
What I am talking about is humility.
Humility requires you to set aside your ego. Being humble gets your head out of the way so your heart can lead. Our ego often gets in the way of success because it clouds our judgment and it brings up past experiences in which we have experienced failure. This creates fear and doubt, which in turn paralyzes us. Ego will also create a false sense of bravado, which comes from low self-esteem. Humility helps you overcome these obstacles and allows you to step outside yourself and seek help.
Far too frequently we are unwilling to ask for help because we believe it is a sign of weakness. When in fact it is just the opposite. Asking for help and/or admitting you don’t have all the answers is an important step to growth.
I have been studying success for a long time and I have learned a common trait shared amongst the most successful people. It is a willingness to reach out for help. They understand that leveraging knowledge and experience from someone who has already scaled the mountain is essential for growth and future success. This can be a mentor, friend, coworker or coach. This is a crucial step to achieving goals. Studies have shown it can increase your rate of success by 50%. So why go at it alone?
When you are setting a goal, stop and ask yourself whom can I ask for help? Who has already had success in this area? The funny thing is, most people are willing to help. Why? Because it’s likely their success was in part due to the help they received. The ability to now pay it forward helps complete the circle.
The best part of the journey of life is to help others achieve their goals. There are few things better in life than to have a part in helping someone else succeed. When we experience success and have learned valuable lessons we feel obligated to offer our knowledge and help. This is a universal truth, “what goes around comes around.” Now you’ve allowed me to help you… thank you!
Live Inspired, be abundant, and fulfill your destiny,
