I received a powerful email from Lee Green of Black Business builders. I decided to share it with my readers. So I will be sharing it over the holiday. So here it goes.
12 Principles for Change by Lee Green- Black Business Builders
These are non-negotiable and there are no escape clauses. No
excuses are accepted. Ignore them at your own risk. Keep in mind, I
got this information over decades of living, but many people have
never learn these rules at all. And so they live in “quiet
desperation.” You don’t have to settle for that. If you consider
these facts and test them against your experience (NOT your
conditioning!), I predict you’ll adopt them, and you’ll be on your
way to a life of freedom and accomplishment.
1. SELF-MANAGEMENT AND PEOPLE SKILLS ARE THE KEYS TO YOUR
SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS.
This is a MAJOR fact of life. And it took me a long time to get
this. If you want to be smarter than me you’ll give this first
principle serious consideration. Your skill level in these two
areas will determine the quality of your whole life. Every champion
and high achiever knows this. These simple skills are the clear
difference between winners in life, and losers.
If you learn to manage yourself you can accomplish anything you can
dream up. You can deal with negative experiences wisely and you can
add skills as you need them. You can become unstoppable. Self
management puts you on the launching pad to all the success you
Most people limit themselves by their unwillingness to consider
personal change. They won’t learn new things and they won’t change
their behaviors, even when they discover they’ve been wrong.
The funny thing is, self-change is EASY. You are the one person
that you can get to anytime you want. You don’t need permission or
an appointment, and no one can stop you from learning and changing
whenever you decide to. The only obstacle is you!
Self-management is actually the first step to building people
skills. Once you commit to changing yourself into who you can be,
you will notice the people around you in a different way. Now you
see them as fellow beings with their own fears and drives. And they
will see you with new respect and attractiveness. You are
surrounded by people who can help or harm you, based on how you
treat them. Learning how people work is a skill, just like
learning how you work. These people can multiply your efforts and
supercharge your success. It takes leadership and persuasion skills
- people skills.
People skills are like a booster rocket propelling you to your
dreams. And the process of succeeding with others can be learned
just like you learn to make toast. If you follow directions and
practice, you can develop the skills that will make you very happy
