Does your growth and development really matters? If yes, then this article is for you! Always give a challenge and keep stretching yourself without let yourself get stuck in a place where feel you are not growing at all or your learning are at standstill.
We really don’t know our inner potential as we never exploit our brain to that level where we really need to. In a fast-paced world it is very important to grow professionally and personally so as to feel more fulfilled both in and out of the workplace.
Four Steps to follow as per my perspective, to have one step ahead of everyone:-
- Look out for New Challenges.
At a very first thought, it appears to be risky, confusing at the same time and but I must say it’s a great thing; this is how professionals and successful companies thrive in this evolving world. New Challenges will keep you moving ahead irrespective of whether old challenges are accomplished or it (though taking learning from old ones) When an opportunity approaches you, seize it! I know folks, it is initially very difficult to survive or handle in the situation, but trust me, a person who experiences such, is the real hero.
- Readout from Anywhere.
Dedicate an hour in a day to read and gain more knowledge. It can be anything informative, might be some technical journal or some philosopher’s diaries (~quotes).It has been proved scientifically that when we involve our brain in some good citations, positive energies supposed to surround our aura and people who are in direct conversation with us admires us for having good thoughts and ultimately blesses us.
- Find a Mentor.
Look around in your company for someone to mentor you. If you can’t find any, reach out to thought leaders through LinkedIn or through a connection. It’s important that you have a connection to the person you seek. I always recommend searching for leaders in your industry through LinkedIn or an association/organization.
- Surround yourself with like-minded peers.
Go to Meetups which are scheduled in coming weekends in you area. Make friends, collaborate, and have fun on weekends which will enrich us. You can meet like-minded peers by attending a networking event, joining a board, or through friends.
There is always something you can improve on; make daily deposits into your personal development bank, soon your bank account will grow and guess it’s tax-free too. Remember, this bank gives you more than cent percent interest even if you spread your good learnings with society and will always lead you to correct way where you can feel you have chosen the right bank.
