Bigg success is life on your own terms. Today, we want to focus on work, one of the five elements of bigg success.
We hear a lot of talk about passions. What do you love to do? Find that and do it.
We don’t hear so much about preferences. Preferences are the Cinderella of success literature.
However, knowing your preferences is just as important as uncovering your passions. Your passions paint the bigg picture; your preferences are the finer points.
Picture a page of a coloring book. You see the outline that you’re supposed to color in. That outline represents your passions. The colors you use and how you use them together are your preferences. It takes both to make the drawing complete.
We have personal preferences. For example, some people prefer to live in the city. Others want to live in the suburbs or even in the country.
We also have preferences in our professional lives.
Some people prefer to work at a desk. It drives other people crazy.
Some people want to work in a large company with a lot of people. For others, small companies trip their trigger.
Some people like to work at home. Others just can’t do it. They find it too distracting or it makes others stir crazy.
One of the most important choices
Do you prefer to be the lead wolf or a lone wolf?
When we think of wolves, we often think of packs. As the lead wolf, you’re the leader of the pack. You recognize that you reach bigg success by organizing your pack to accomplish things together that couldn’t be accomplished individually.
It’s all about the pack and helping the individual members develop their talents to reach their full potential so the whole pack is a bigg success.
A lone wolf, in nature, is usually a young adult in search of new territory. To apply this to our lives, your work is your craft. You prefer to do it alone. You want to master your craft, to push yourself beyond the boundaries that you’ve reached before. In order to do this, you don’t want to be distracted by the responsibilities of leadership.
Think about your preference – lead wolf or lone wolf – so you can live your life on your own terms. That’s bigg success!
