Being an entrepreneur is a learning journey; people’s buying habits change, the market change, and technology changes. Your ability to deal with these changes helps you stay in the game. Being relevant is a product of hard work and consistent improvement in life. I have discovered that success takes a holistic approach. It is beyond perfecting a skill instead of developing a better perspective towards growth and life as a whole.
Self-development can be a catalyst of change that brings you closer to your business. The more you grow, the better decisions you make and the more you can grow your business.
Here are Self-development Habits I Practice Regularly
#1 Read books.
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” - Dr Seuss
Reading can expand your knowledge and improve your critical thinking skills. Try setting a reading goal every month to learn something new. There are many self-help and business books out there. Some books like The Richest Man in Babylon by George Clason can be of great help.
#2 Observe others.
Aside reading, studying high profile individuals is relevant for growth. While books gives a visual representation of people’s mindset, observing their lifestyle reflects their true self. You observe their way of life, communication style, fashion style and many more. If you have people who inspire you, identifying the qualities you admire in them will be helpful. Moreso, ensure that you replicate them in your life.
#3 Ask for feedback.
I have come to observe that the reason many people are stuck is because they ignore the importance of feedback. Have you ever been stuck in mediocre situation? Perhaps, you have always repeated the same mistakes at work. One day, you realize there is a way out because you ask questions or summed up courage to ask for feedback. Getting feedback from your colleagues, friends, or superiors is a great way to grow. After completing any project, approach any of these people to give you feedback. You can also ask for feedback regarding your attitude to work, interpersonal and communication skills. Sometimes, you learn new methods for self-improvement when you ask for feedback.
#4 Find a life coach or mentor
As a business coach, I am passionate about helping business owners grow. However, I did not become a coach in one day. I learnt from others, attende conferences, read books and practiced the above. One of the best ways to achieve success is finding a life coach. Coaches are individuals who have experience in specific areas. Finding a coach in the area you struggle with the most is a great way to grow.
Finally, personal development impacts your business and relationships with others. This results in becoming the best version of yourself.
