We all want to be relevant. We want to live our lives. We want to do our own things, in our own ways. We want to be treated with respect and dignity. We want to grow. We want to stay important. We want to stay relevant.

How do we stay relevant? How do we keep growing?

To stay relevant in life, you MUST first think, see, and treat yourself in a relevant way. You must first see yourself as an important person. You must treat yourself in a respectful way. If you don’t know who you are, if you don’t know your values, if you don’t know how powerful you are, no one will care.

It is important to stay relevant if we are to enjoy life. The only critical way to stay relevant in life is to keep moving. We need to keep growing. We need to keep moving. We need to keep challenging ourselves, keep questioning our assumptions, keep connecting with others. We need to get out of our comfort zones. We need to keep trying new things.

To stay relevant, Will Rogers said, “Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.” No matter where you are, what you are doing, how you are doing it, don’t be comfortable. Don’t think you have nothing to learn anymore. If you keep that kind of mentality, you will miss lots of opportunities to grow and improve yourself.

Always challenge what you think you know. Open your mind to learn new things, to take new ideas, to question people and yourself. If you don’t bring in new ideas, new ways of doing things into your business, your business will not be around for long. If you don’t keep upgrading yourself, you can’t keep your job for long. If you want your life to be relevant, keep doing relevant things.

The Little Things Matter

Vincent Van Gogh said, “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” The little things have the power to change our lives. The problem is, we pay more attention to the big things than to the small things.

Why? People believe that it is the big things that can change their lives, their situations. They ignore the little things because they believe, in their minds, that it is the big things that can move mountains. How wrong!

The little things can change your life. If you want to build great relationships, for example, you need to pay attention to the little things that are important to people, such as respect. You cannot win people to your camp without a clear awareness of the little things that make them happy, or that make them sad. It is important to know about the little things that make people who they are, because it will make it easier for you to connect with them.

Notice the little things that make people strong, and you will enjoy working with people. They will enjoy working with you, too. Paying attention to the little things matter, because human beings matter.
