People hatching creative business ideas every now and then are all about making big and getting rich and becoming successful. They have short and long-term goals, all aspiring to achieve the heights of success. And that is because we are taught to be successful from our very foundation of learning. The idea, the concept of being successful is so deeply ingrained in our lives that nothing else seems more fulfilling and engaging than being successful, making our lives and goals materialistic in the pursuit. Today, knowing that success is fleeting and will blow away in a short span of time, people are looking for a more perceptible and real form of esteem and merit, and are working to become a man of value rather than a man of success. Let’s see how these tips can help you become an indispensable man of value at work and in life.
1. They Are The Givers
In our daily work life, we interact with many people with different personalities and behaviors. The majority of them are the takers, receive as much advice, recommendations, time, and energy from others and use them to accomplish their goals, daily assignments, and other benefits. Some of them are the matchers, they invest in others as much as others invest in them and very few of them are the givers. The people who are always available to guide you, to contribute to others’ work and values, and to help others succeed. They are the ones who drive their idea of success while helping others and demanding or expecting nothing in return.
2. Mere Success Is Frivolous To Them
The millennials and Generation Z are all about earning money, getting their hands on luxury cars, owning villas, extravagant savings, and a prestigious career before they hit 40. Without realizing that a little economic downturn can disrupt their orderly dreams. Even then, it is possible that being a man of value seems a bit futile to them as it’s not an easy job. Instead, it’s one of the most difficult jobs to create value in your life and add value to people’s lives. But it is sustainable and will be part of your personality and of those you have helped in any economic or financial crises and can yield you much bigger benefits than success can.
3. Success Chases A Person Of Value
Every person has some intrinsic values. That makes you the person you are. But the business, personal and professional values are something you opt for. And that comes with some major lifestyle adjustments. Accept yourself as you are and if you want to get hold of new values, open yourself up for experience and start helping people in need. It could be a new employee in your company, or a slow learner in your team, a starter who needs mandatory skills to survive the job, or old age who is rebuffed by his approaching retirement. Help people, that will make you indispensable and useful at work. And not only this, it will give you the contentment, the satisfaction, the engagement, and the gratification, nothing else can give you.
4. What You Offer Is How Valuable You Are
A person of value always has this urge of getting better in things, that’s why their personal development is on the top of the chart. They continuously evolve, comprehend, and develop themselves to realize their full potential. A valuable person at work not only makes a difference in people close to them, they learn this behavior by adding values to their own personalities, attitudes, and identities. They shape their raw selves into precious, prodigious, and extraordinary beings and refine their capabilities while opening themselves and their treasure of values for others.
When you are valuable, you have the confidence to change people’s lives and if you are successful in adding value even to a single person’s life, there is your success that can never be diminished or refuted. Start by asking yourself, what qualities or values do you need to make a difference? To change your perspective or to broaden your horizon while dealing with new projects at work? How can you be more helpful to your colleagues? How can you help a person survive his job? or what you can do to refine their emotional and professional skills? If you work on them. The results could be rewarding.
