Very few people ever embark on the turbulence journey of self-discovery; the majority tends to rely on chance or a stroke of luck to unravel that unique attribute that lies within them. Trust me, the sooner you discover that unique attribute that lies innate within you and start leveraging on that attributes, the better your chances of building a successfully thriving career. Sometimes your unique selling point might not be something you consider a personal talent hence you might not see it as a remarkable skill. Nonetheless, it is something you should amplify once you discover it; it just might be the breakthrough your career needs.
One thing I have come to discover in life is that every successful entrepreneur builds his venture around his business language (unique attribute), this has given him an edge over other competitors. Little wonder why such an entrepreneur ends up quite successful.
To this end, the first habit is that point where every entrepreneur reaches, that point of self-discovery that unravels their special innate attributes, which thus brings them a step closer to building a blossoming career. Nevertheless, here are four steps to making the very first habit work for you:
You need a plan
Its one thing to discover your unique attribute and another entirely to tweak that attribute to work to your favor. Hence, you must map out your strategy, visions and what you want to achieve in life. I cannot retreat this enough, there is no short cut to wealth, and doing what you love is not a surety to wealth. Wealth is a function of the sum total of your goals and ambition and how you are clearly going to achieve these goals. Also, you will need a plan that weighs risk and reward, this way you will be guided when making certain business decisions.
Zero in, double down
Having discovered your unique characteristics and selling point, all which is required of you is to focus on getting better by improving yourself and cutting off all sorts of distractions. Make a small collage of your strength and identify careers where your unique attributes can fully find expressions. This collage which represents your blueprint will also make your dream of achieving your goals easier.
Create your exceptional engine
The path to becoming a solo-preneuer or becoming your own boss is quite difficult to thread, nonetheless, there are certain things that can make this your reality. This is all embedded in your ability to learn, earn, assist and persist. The very first thing you must take responsibility of is your ability to learn about money making opportunities that give your unique attribute full expression, such opportunities must equally allow you earn money using your unique attribute. Having done this, you must solicit for assistance from networks of people in your industry and learn to be patient as there is no short cut to wealth, except you want to result to illegal means.
Failure makes perfect
Failure has strengthened a lot of people to the point that they now look beyond their talents and plan to build a successful career. Hence, they strive to get an equity stake in whatever they venture into. Consequently, you must position yourself at vantage points, lay down your blueprint to financial freedom and work your way into your financial destiny. If you can apply all these steps mentioned above, I see no reason why your “first habit” shouldn’t work to your favor.
