At the university we’ve learned:
- Microeconomics, Macroeconomics
- Communication policy, Marketing
- Business planning, Business communications
- Finance, Management
- European integrated market etc.
But the truth is that the university is just the base for the real business life, because the real education is happening outside the university.
It is in the business books you read after the classes in your spare time.
Books, which you read not only with your eyes, but also with your heart and hunger for new skills, hunger for being a better professional and a better person.
It’s in the conversations with real leaders, who have worth experience in marketing and sales.
Have you noticed how brightly shine the real leaders and professionals?
I don’t mean the ones who talk too much, know everything and always use the word “I”, instead of the word “we”.
I’m talking about the real worth professionals.
They shine with their presence, with their charisma, with their worth experience and they always talk in “we” form, because they are team-players and team-inspirers.
They don’t influence – they encourage.
I adore this kind of leaders and I’m happy I had a chance to work with such ones.
They are really worth knowing personalities and you could learn so much from their management style and way of thinking.
It’s in additional seminars, trainings and courses you have, in order to improve yourself.
Even if your company doesn’t provide you such ones, it’s your responsibility to do everything possible to find such activities for yourself and take part in them.
Don’t wait someone else to think about you – you are the first person, who has to do it for yourself.
It’s in doing your best every day and remembering that “doing your best” looks different every day:
- First point – it’s a daily habit. There’s no break and the discipline is a must.
- Second point – remove your pink glasses. Life is not easy and it will never be. But if you make steps forward every day, it’s a positive trend.
- Third point – improving yourself is not an event. It’s a process. So be patient, while you are determined.
Daniel Abrahams developed this straight to the point illustration about how it looks like to get better every day.
And while you do the things, mentioned above, there is one thing you should never forget:
There will always be haters. But if you can still hear them, then your passion is not loud enough!
Be inspired and don’t forget to use your wings to fly!
