Skills That Will Pay Off Forever
Learning how to Learn
This is the holy grail of skills. Once you realize that every type of skill can be learned if you follow a particular set of steps, the world starts to look a lot like a video game.
You can level up and acquire new abilities since you know what type of effort, time and focus it will take to learn a new skill.
Ability to Adapt, Improvise and Overcome Obstacles
This isn’t just a Bear Grills catchphrase, it’s actually what allows you to keep moving forward and survive the hard times you’re going to face in your journey.
Only the ignorant is under the impression that he has life all figured out and it’s going to be all straight roads from now onward. That person is in for a massive surprise!
You are not your body, you are not the things you own, you are not what people think of you. You are your mind.
Everything that makes you who you are, resides in that cage made of bone between your ears.
That’s who you are, that’s what makes you, you! Every action, idea, taught, desire, weakness and sorrow begins there.
Ability to Sell and Negotiate
Everything you do is a sale or a negotiation process. If you want a girlfriend or a boyfriend you need to sell them on the idea of you being the right person for them. You want a job, then you need to be able to sell your skillset over that of other potential hires.
Ability to Self-motivate
There will be days when you don’t feel like getting out of the bed. A lot of them. There will be days when you don’t want to get back to the grind. There are days when you feel like you’re not making much progress.
Building up from the previous point and we end up with discipline. If you’ve been following this channel for a while, you know that: Success is the sum of small actions repeated over extended periods of time.
