Have you heard the saying, “We get better when we do better. And we do better when we know better?”
This is huge in our business. National Agents Alliance lives and breathes this concept, always setting the example by reviewing and introducing new books and MP3s for all employees to access for their personal improvement.
Personal development should be a life-long endeavor, simply because each of us is a work in progress. There is always something to learn, some topic to explore, some new technology to master. You won’t stop learning until you take your last breath, so wouldn’t it make sense to take control and have an organized plan for your pursuit of knowledge?
Every day presents an opportunity; an opportunity to live life to its fullest, a chance to experience something new, an occasion to make a new acquaintance, even a shot at setting a personal record at the gym. Anything at all that moves you forward, not backward.
This approach to each and every day will keep you exhilarated, ready to pop up out of bed and anxious to tackle a new day, never even considering that some of the day’s tasks might be difficult. When you are constantly learning, you carry certain optimism and exhibit a new energy that propels you like a rocket into whatever is waiting for you.
Greater knowledge gives you a competitive advantage, that brings new successes, and in turn, develops unbeatable confidence. Then, more personal development begets more success, and even more confidence naturally follows. It starts like a little snowball rolling down the hill, growing and growing into a huge avalanche and, all of a sudden, you’re unstoppable!
Before you know it, reading and listening to powerfully positive MP3s has become a habit and your thirst for more knowledge grows and grows. When you and others in your office are personally improving, and management supports such a program, you are working in a special place. Goals are accomplished, records are set, sales are off the chart and everyone has just a little more spring in their step, all because you committed to doing just a little bit every day. We know that no one is perfect, but you find yourself getting better as a parent, friend, employee or citizen.
Get a little better every day, and watch your career snowball. It’s is an ongoing journey; hop aboard and enjoy the ride with National Agents Alliance!
