There’s no such thing as job security… only skills security!
I hate to break it to you… job security does NOT exist. The only true security is in developing your talents and abilities.
Here’s the simple truth… The more you LEARN, the more you can EARN. But, it’s not just about going back to school and getting degrees, which of course is always a good thing… It’s really about gaining practical skills and being a life-long learner that will bring value to your organization and your life. Being open to ideas along with taking the appropriate actions will lead you to new opportunities, help you become more valuable to your employer, and ultimately help you earn more money.
So, no matter where you are in your life, or what industry or business you’re in, if you want to earn more money, then you need to ask yourself this question: How can I add more value?
Take the first step toward adding more value. Make a list of the top 10 skills you need for your career and rate yourself from 1 – 10, with 10 being excellent. From this list, choose your top three, and come up with a few action steps that you are willing to commit to… and make them a priority. Set your schedule. Mark your calendar. Whatever it takes to keep you on track toward gaining skills and adding value.
Even if you’re an expert you can always better your best. So remember, practice doesn’t make perfect. Practice makes improvement.
