A while back I posted a video entitled,' How Much Are You Worth?' I got a lot of great feedback and it got me to thinking... Just how do people measure their value? Is it done on a monetary scale? Maybe they base it on how popular they are in their social network on and offline. But truly, what is really considered value when it comes to a human being?
Now I learned long ago about a scale system that can sort of measure one's self, giving a sort of self-estimate. First make a list of yourself in different areas of your life. This is done because you are entirely different things to different people. My list goes a little something like this for example.
And so on...
Now after you make this list, rate each one on a scale of 1 to 10, and be honest. Now after you have rated yourself in each one of these areas in your life, rate yourself as a person using the same rating system. You may be asking yourself by now, what's the point? The point is that you can never be a 10 in any of those other areas in your life until you become a 10 as a person.
Becoming a 10 as a person is a formula for success. Work on you and how you see yourself and you will begin to excel as a business person, father, friend or whatever. Once this system of self-analysis was revealed to me it literally changed how I viewed myself and showed me areas of my life that I need to work on.
Now don't get me wrong, we will always be a work in progress as a human race, but it kind of helps to know where to focus, especially when that focus helps you to improve in every area of your life. So if you want to be a better entrepreneur, start with becoming a better person. Your clients will love you for it and your pockets will thank you.
