If there is one thing we all agree on is that to achieve professional success, we need a lot of effort, commitment, positivity and to have developed the necessary emotional and social skills, to deal with people or stakeholders, and of course to move forward no matter what happens in our day to day.
In order to be good entrepreneurs, businessmen or workers, we need to be creative, innovative, communicators and good salespeople. But we will only be so if we are happy, if we are passionate about what we do, if we are ethical and responsible with our team, with our company, with our colleagues, if we are good communicators, if we know how to find the space for ourselves to develop ideas, to create…
Because it is not enough to have the technical knowledge of our sector, because if we do not take action our project or our business will not prosper.
But why don’t we take action? Fundamentally because we are afraid, because we think it won’t work, because we are unmotivated, because our dreams are stolen, because what we do doesn’t make us happy… Therefore, professional development is largely linked to personal development.
If you want different results, do different things
to achieve your personal and professional goals and objectives because the two go hand in hand. And what can you do differently? Stop, connect with your dreams and purposes, with what you want to achieve, with the vision of the future you want, plan and set realistic goals.
In order to establish an adequate action plan, it is necessary to make good decisions, taking into account our dreams but always for the overall benefit.
And what do we need to make good decisions in the professional field?
- Training. Technical and specific to the area or sector, to be in continuous training.
- Attitude. Positive attitude, constant, effort, focused on our values and healthy habits.
- Skills. Organizational, time management, emotional and social, and of course mindfulness.
All these social, emotional and personal development skills can be learned and trained with attention, with practices such as Mindfulness that help us to pay attention to the present moment, with kindness and compassion towards ourselves. Making us stronger every day, gaining self-esteem and security, and improving our emotional management.
What are you willing to do differently?
