"Don’t trade self discovery and exploration for aughtness.” ~ Unknown
Aughtness is listening to everyone around you say, “You aught to do this, you aught to do that…”
I have a theory on aughtness.
The more you follow aughtness, the less confident you become.
But why is that?
It’s pretty simple, really…
To pursue self discovery (pushing your personal boundaries) and to explore new ideas, you have to prepare yourself for the challenge.
And to prepare, you must believe you are worth investing in.
And, when you consistently focus, prepare, and invest in yourself, you’ll find others will begin to see an unwavering commitment to achieving what you want.
And, they'll perceive your commitment as confidence, and begin to invest in you for one reason…you’ve proven that you’re someone worth investing in.
Here’s the good news, not only does this work for you, but it’ll work for your strategy.
Use the same concept for yourself and your strategy to grow your company, and you’ll be amazed at the results you achieve.
