Whether you are a leader at a company, your startup, or at home, it might be time to change how you view your definition of wealth. This is where decisions that are value-based come into play.
You can be a leader in any role you see impacting your life. Yet, many leaders prefer to let external factors influence their decisions and reactions both financially and emotionally. Instead, what would happen if you looked inward to make your next move?
Whittling down what you most care about and why you overcame certain obstacles or diversity may help you create a new idea of wealth. It could be a plan to optimize yourself and those around you, or simply your finances. Start thinking about why the successful moments in challenging situations became successful and what were the decisions leading up to them.
Here, you could leave it at simple theory, or you could pick up any of these new releases to help you turn thought into action, taking the next steps in your definition of short- and long-term wealth.
