“One key to successful leadership is continuous personal change. Personal change is a reflection of our inner growth and empowerment.” – Robert E. Quinn
Reading self-help and motivational books and quotes are only the first step to change. The next MAJOR step is to consistently IMPLEMENT whatever you have learnt from the books. After reading some self-help books, I have many concepts on positive MINDSETS mentally. However, today I realised that KNOWING the concept does not mean that you are LIVING the concepts. It took a good friend and mentor to point that out.
Having lived 23 years of my life guided by my previous MINDSET, it is difficult to change completely over a few weeks or even months. To ensure that our MINDSET is constantly changing and evolving for the better, we have to make a mental note to IMPLEMENT and practice what we learn from the books. Repeat the process until the new MINDSET becomes a habit and overtakes the previous guiding MINDSET.
