I’m passionate about self-development. I know that because my Birkman Assessment told me so (I enjoyed taking the test, and I urge you to do it), plus the results resonated with my daily habits. I always spend my free time watching videos or listening to podcasts that touch on success, happiness, growth, and resilience. I heard once, “our lives are a physical manifestation of our thoughts,” and I want to live a successful, happy life. Therefore, I can’t help but surround myself with success and happiness thoughts. I want to be awesomely better today than yesterday and never stop growing.
I came across a video where a group of college students asked Warren Buffet about the traits for which he looks in people that shall have a bright future. His answer, as always, was relatively simple. If we want to know for sure that our future will be prosperous, we must have 1) intelligence 2) energy and initiative 3) and integrity. In other words, we need to acquire the necessary knowledge to develop our vision, then have the power required to achieve it and make sure we do so ethically.
One last important thing, the quality of our lives is determined by the quality of our habits. The older we get, the harder it is to change our lives’ patterns. We must develop habits that will enrich our knowledge, boost our energy, and keep our morals in check to be climbing the mountain of success and reach its pinnacle.
