IDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Precise and fresh ideas for Professional and Personal Development. Modern concepts that will take your authority to another level, open your eyes to simple techniques. Soar like en eagle, leave the turkeys behind. Let’s cover some action steps to get out of the mediocre mindset and into a successful winning mindset.

The ideas presented here will probably not be what you expected. Read to the end and be surprised like I was when I discovered them. I wasted over half of my life in a mediocre mindset and regrettably I can’t get that back.

INSTANT GRATIFICATION/QUESTION THE SOCIAL NORMS

The practice of instant gratification has the masses jumping into unnecessary debt and gimme gimme mindsets. The normIDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT says it is okay to take a $700,000+ mortgage over a 4 bedroom, 2-3 bathrooms, 2 garages home with all the bells and whistles like swimming pool, big screen TV, the latest floor coverings and furniture. In my opinion this is not okay.

This action immediately locks people into a mediocre lifestyle working a boring lifelong job (Just Over Broke) usually working for a boss to repay the mortgage. Is this action a healthy wise decision? No, it is not, however the social norms approves and encourages this behaviour.

At this point in my rhetoric, I would suggest the brave, courageous people who realise their mistake, would sell the big mansion and downsize to a basic smaller version and immediately reduce their mortgage by half. Sound radical? No, take the emotion out of it and it is plain common sense isn’t it? Start small and build up. I ask you, why live with the mistake? There’s no time like the now to start again. Are you a brave liberated adult or stuck in instant gratification?

ACTION NO: 1 BECOME AN INDEPENDENT FREE THINKER

Liberated adults make their own wise decisions and choices which often goes against the social norms. You might ask how do I become a liberated adult? How about standing back and witnessing some of the misleading garbage that we are fed, complacently accept and follow like sheep? Question your behaviour and create your own unique path in life and follow in the footsteps of the entrepreneurs. Look at what they do, how they do it and so on. The blueprint is right in front of our eyes. It is time to see it.

The abundantly wealthy people in this life make their own decisions, think outside the box and create their lives. Once we take the first step to be our own mentor, be totally responsible for our life path and where it is going to take us, we open up a world of opportunity.

ACTION NO: 2 TRASH OUR COMFORT ZONES

Our comfort zones are as restricting and strangulating as some of the social norms. Wallowing around in our comfort zones keeps us stagnating, leading a mediocre life along with the masses and oh so cosy. I’ll just do what everyone else is doing. The liberated adult is buried underneath all the brainwashing and childhood conditioning, doing what Mum and Dad and all of our friends and peers are doing. Believe me, if you listen, your will hear your liberated adult screaming for a life of exhilarating action, excitement, curiosity and passion. Get me out of here!

ACTION NO: 3 GET OFF THE COUCH AND TAKE ACTION

IDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTResolve to take charge and actually fully live our lives. Our lives can be purpose driven, meaningful and happier, in a heartbeat, if we take actions to make amazing things happen. Instead we accept our mediocre mindsets and follow like sheep. Do we know what would happen if we discovered what we are passionate about and uncovered a dormant talent? I can share with you, once I discovered my passion which led to my talent, my life is full of exhilaration, enthusiasm and meaning.

What are you passionate about? It will be something you absolutely love, can’t get enough of, become totally absorbed with and don’t notice the hours drift by. I get so absorbed doing what I love that I often have to force myself to take a break and eat.

Buried in this passion we will discover we have a natural talent that is eagerly waiting to be exposed, explored and used. This talent will take us out of a mediocre lifestyle and into an entrepreneur mindset. Hey, success is around the corner, so to speak, however not instant. We need to live our talent, breathe it and dedicate ourselves to growing it. Opportunity abounds when we are focused on this one thing, our talent.

We then need to develop ideas about how we can use our talent to provide a lifestyle which brings up how are we going to market it, where to market it etc. etc.

MODERN ONLINE MARKETING

The modern way to market anything these days is online. Do you have your own website or do you need a website? I needed a website and after doing my due diligence, researching and reading I discovered Wealthy Affiliates. We can join for free and check out the training, the “hand holding” community and build two websites hosted by Wealthy Affiliate. I had zilch IT expertise and made a start.

After 3 months I had learned mobs and now I have a solid foundation and am ready to soar. This can be you! You have my IDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTreassurance that you will be in the best of hands and success is a few months away. Wealthy Affiliates is not a scam, nor is it a “get rich quick” platform. I have to work harder than I ever have, however, the only way I can fail is to give up.

“How can you fly with the eagles when you are mixing with turkeys?” One of the key factors with a new business is to surround ourselves with like-minded people. I knew I was mixing with the turkeys and thought how can I surround myself with people who already have, or are working on successful winning mindset. Wealthy Affiliates have a 2 million strong community that is doing just that. Among them are entrepreneurs and millionaires who have nailed it and willing share their experience and guidance to keep us newbies on the right path. I ask you, what more do you need?

  1. This was an interesting and useful take on just what the goals can be in life when looked at from a practical perspective versus what is being sold out there to get you hooked into that mediocre lifestyle you mention. I have been on both sides of that discussion over the years.

    My current thinking is about what yours is when it comes to creating a lifestyle for yourself where you are less enslaved to the systems that will allow you to live at your or slightly above your income level (this keeps you tied into that boring job you mention) at a price of loss of freedoms that you could otherwise enjoy.

    To get this change in place, the actions you recommend are required. I cannot tell you how many good ideas that people around me have had, but the difference between them remaining dreams or careers or a business, or a lifestyle is that people who took action realized the dream in many cases. Those that did not take action, did not realize their dream.

    Lastly, the focal point that you are recommending to get a start on taking action is a platform I am well aware of and support 100%. Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to learn what actions to take to gain independence from the 9-5 and rat race through creating your own online business.

    1. Hi Dave,  Thank you for dropping by with your experiences. It really is challenging for us to be brave and make our own decisions and step outside of the norm.  I am appalled at some of the new ideas that are being thrown at us. For example:  no free speech, no gender, no Baa Baa Black Sheep, no Merry Xmas to name a few.  Allowing ourselves to become free thinkers and liberated adults will move us out of the mediocre and into a lifestyle that brings many benefits.

      Wealthy Affiliates is a platform where we can educate our Liberated Adults to bring our abundant lifestyle into being.  I love it!  Cheers Jill 

  2. So glad I came across your article today.  I have recently started blogging because I have always loved to write and my goal is to eventually write a book.  I figured a blog would be a great way to hone my skills and get a bit of a following.  

    I agree with you 100% about getting off the couch!  I always set small goals that can be accomplished quickly.  These goals are all geared toward achieve my ultimate goal, chipping away at it slowly.  This method has always worked for me, but I am finding it difficult to find the time outside of work.  Plus when I start writing, time flies by, making it feel like I have even less time! This tells me that i am passionate about what I am doing because time flies when I am having fun!

    Would you suggest I look for a job requiring less than the 60 hours a week I am working at my current job?  I would be willing to take pay  cut, as long as my bills are covered.However, I will not be left with much financial security in the case of unforeseeable money problems. This will allow me to focus more on my passion of writing blogs.  

    However, it is just a huge decision and, if I follow through, who knows how long, or if at all, it will take for my blog to start turning a profit.  I do feel if I spend more time on it, I will achieve success more quickly tho.  Any advice for me and others in my situation? 

    Thank you for a great article and for all your help!

    1. Hi Ashley,  Thanks for your contribution to the conversation .  I noticed you are wanting to write a book.  I am in the middle of publishing my first.  Your blogging is a great way to hone writing skills and is exactly what happened to me.  Touché.

      It is not for me to say what is best in your current working life.  I would not presume to do that.  My job is simply to provoke thought that may lead you to a better solution .  Each person’s situation is different and by calmly looking at the pros and cons, it often throws up some clarity and common sense, which in turn points to the best solution.

      Your blog WILL start turning a profit!  Let’s deal with the doubt, “if at all”.  We all entertain doubts however make it your business to trash the baggage when you can.  Lol.   Behind you all the way.  Cheers, Jill

  3. I spent far too long milling about with turkeys. We have to forgive ourselves. Most of us are not taught how to fly, so we do not think we can until we try.

    You need to shake yourself up, as you said, to get out of the wandering sheepfold and soar. Wealthy Affiliate is overflowing with eagles looking for people who want to join them.

    We are not left to our own devices or bombarded with screeching emails. We are not pounded by other’s outrageous success stories and nagged to spend more to make more.

    We are taught, step by step who to find our path to success right from Day 1.

    It is a refreshing and uplifting experience.

    I am glad to be sharing it with likeminded people.

    1. Hi Gwendolyn,  Thank you for contributing to the conversation.  I agree with your comment, most of us are not taught how to fly with the eagles .  It is only when we start to question our lives that we see a way out of the mediocre lifestyle.

      The Wealthy Affiliates platform allows us to surround ourselves with like minded people and that in itself takes us by the hand and leads us to the changes to attain an abundant lifestyle.  The support here is unrivalled consequently with persistence our Liberated Adults can claim an abundant healthy lifestyle.

      Cheers now, Jill
