Everybody wanna be famous, but don’t wanna put the work in…
Have you ever noticed that there are a lot of people who want to run things, but aren’t willing to do what it takes to get there? If you’re like me, you have a desire to actually find yourself in a place where your goal of being a boss is consistently me. In this video I’m going to give you some tips on how to be a boss starting from the inside out.
Discipline is a valuable tool that must be applied first and foremost before ever trying to move forward as a “boss”. No matter where you fall on the chain of command, if you’re over someone (including yourself) then you have to have discipline. Waking up at a specific time everyday, developing useful habits, being aware of unhealthy distractions among other things all play an important role in determining your level of success as a boss.
You have to be responsible for yourself and others. Even if you don’t have employees under you, you’re most likely teaching a course, training other people, influencing your followers, etc. so therefore you have a major obligation to handle with care the individuals that you are feeding.
When it comes to taking responsibility for yourself, that means keeping yourself accountable to what you said you would do, it means being responsible for the messages you allow yourself to accept, it means taking responsibility for your business, brand or public image. It’s very rare that people buy into a person, product or service that isn’t accountable to its intended purpose.
Being committed to yourself, your goals and your audience is so important. If you’re not committed or aren’t really passionate about what you say you’re passionate about then it’s best not to pursue it. Find something that you won’t have trouble going after with passion and commitment.
You have to be consistent. For a very long time, this was one of my downfalls and caused me to see a drift in my following, subscribers, readers, listeners…ALL OF THAT. I had a lot going on in my life and I was spreading myself so thin that I wasn’t giving myself the opportunity to be consistent in my personal endeavors. If you want to grow in ANYTHING, you have to be consistent. That goes for relationships, business, family, personal growth, plants, etc.
You HAVE to be honest with yourself and others. A real boss hones in on a super power that I like to call “Honesty”. Quite frankly, a person who is honest has nothing to lose, ESPECIALLY when you’re a full blown BOSS. No one controls you, no one can tell you what to do and no one determines whether you lose or win because YOU are the boss. I’m not saying that you should be harsh or mean in your honesty, but what I am saying is that you shouldn’t hide from the truth. If you receive customer reviews about your product and someone says that they’re overpriced and poor quality, you need to reevaluate that product and be honest enough with yourself to decide whether this customer was just a mishap or if this may have been a repeated comment and do something about it.
Don’t be afraid to collaborate with other businesses, brands or individuals. Cross promotion is one of the most amazing and exciting ways to not only get in front of a built in audience who may also be interested in what you offer, but it’s an amazing way to build and nurture new relationships with other companies who may be an asset in the future, or vice versa. Keep an open mind to the feedback from your customers, employees, clients or others who have solid ideas that can be implemented and better the brand. You don’t have to always accept people’s ideas because there’s a lot involved in that, but if there are other decision makers involved in the process of what you produce, then it’s important to keep your ear to the ground. Even as a YouTuber, you may want to keep a close eye on those comments. The people will definitely tell you have they feel.
