I found this article "Career Hub: 9 Career Lessons From Richard Branson" by Sital Ruparelia and feel inspired. The article is adapted from Sir Richard Branson's Screw It--Let's Do It - Lessons in Life.
The 9 lessons are below, and they are precisely what we should remember to live by every day!
- Just Do It
- Have fun
- Be bold
- Challenge Yourself
- Stand on Your Own Feet
- Live in the Moment
- Put Family and Friends First
- Have Respect
- Do Some Good
These 9 lessons are just wonderful! Often, when I have an idea, I jump into it with both hands and feet. "Just do it" is a powerful message! When Nike comes up with that slogan, they know how to motivate people to take a chance.
If you want to start a blog, just do it! If you contemplate on having a new career, just do it!
"Challenge yourself" is another lesson that jumps out at me. It is the back burner that remains well lit to give me that push to reach for what I want. Learning to challenge myself gives me opportunities to open for new ideas, and experiences. I believe when I stop challenging myself, I also stop learning!
Everyone has their own life lessons to live by! These 9 lessons from Sir Richard Branson are my inspiration to work on self improvement.
My life lessons look something like this:
- Have courage to try new things
- Push past limitation
- Be honest, loyal, and supportive
- Give my best effort
- Have faith
- Do the right thing
- Count my blessings
