The world can be a dangerous place. Hopefully, none of you have to experience this in life – but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Listening is one of the most critical skills you have – your ability to listen well has a significant impact on your career effectiveness and the quality of your relationships with others. Today, too many people listen to respond rather than listen to understand.
You have to understand what’s actually essential in your life. That’s an important distinction. Your life is different from others – what you value the most will be different as well.
Financial maturity means that you’ve taken the necessary steps that lead you into financial adulthood. This allows you to live a more financially secure and independent life and shouldn’t be confused with financial independence or security.
For example – can you change a tire, or do you need to call your insurance for roadside assistance? It’s essential to take stock of the little everyday skills you can learn that you rely on others for. Learn how to make small repairs around the house – instead of calling someone to do them for you.
Do you remember when you were a child, and everything was interesting to you, and you questioned everything? Much to the chagrin of your parents, you would always ask why. It’s easy to lose curiosity about everything.
The satisfaction you feel after an achievement will only last so long. While this hunger to be better is absolutely necessary to be successful, you need to divorce yourself from your career.
Part of the human condition is growing and changing. Along the way, you will make mistakes; no one is perfect. It’s easy to put yourself down – but you have to accept yourself for who you are.
With all of the negative experiences you go through in life, it’s easy to lose empathy for others. Empathy is imagining yourself in someone else’s shoes.
