How can you take over in your world? How can you conquer your world? Well, this is no joke. A few things you must do.
- First, find out what it is that you want to do.
- Acquire the knowledge and the mental and physical fitness to enable you do it.
- Then be sure that you have behavioral skills to ensure you can do it.
All this is what is in total called human capital development.
Now let me note this one thing. If you acquire all the human capital in the world but you don’t work hard with it, it won’t work. You must work hard in your mind and in your body. You must.
What are the behavioral skills you need to activate your knowledge, your preparedness and your fitness? Here are some for you.
- Try to Make People Around You Better and Better Off. Work to have a positive impact on people. As someone said it could be something as simple as holding the door open for an old person. And it could also as complicated as building a company to solve a problem that impacts a billion people.
- Read, Read and Read. Study your craft and the leaders in your craft and then aim to beat them. And you will beat them eventually. All of them, if you work hard for years and keep your mind and energy on it.
- Choose the people you surround yourself with wisely. Rotten eggs can spoil good eggs.
- Raise your productivity in speed, time and output.
- Practice your craft several hours a day. Never quit.
- Learn from others but be yourself. Don’t fake it. Don’t try to be like others, just learn from them. And finally, among others this one is very important.
- Always be grateful to people and to God. Thank everyone involved. Every one. No one is little. They are all important. Then thank God.
There was a man called Rhinehard Bonke. He seemed to know how to command the atmosphere. In his evangelical crusades he simply took over all the elements. Michael Jackson also did the same thing. They understood their craft. They worked hard. You too can do it. So here is the economics, you reduce your cost of performance by practicing hard and preparing. By the time you get to performance it is piece of cake. The opportunity cost of not preparing and not working hard to get ready is huge and sometimes insurmountable.
