Becoming a business leader like Peter Loftin
Becoming someone like Peter Loftin is always easier said than done and trust me the degree of convenience is really high over here. For starters, they have a clear idea of what they want from their lives. There is no grey area in their lives. Their goals are very clear as far as they themselves are concerned and they are forever running after them till those goals are achieved. Once the goals are out of the way it is time to kick back a bit, relax, take stock, and then make new goals. This process keeps repeating itself till they can do it no more.
The thing with a common person, who is either yet to achieve success, has never done it, or would never be good enough to do it, is that she or he does not possess this clarity. They never know what they want from their lives and as such have never been driven enough to go ahead and achieve them. Whenever, in fact, you ask them such questions they are utterly perplexed by them since they do not have an answer as such.
The role of capabilities in this regard
The thing with people like Peter Loftin is that capabilities play a major role in their ascendancy in life. They know that in order to get where they wish to be in life they need to first get better themselves. This would at least allow them to make a fist of it. They know that they have to acquire skills and capabilities and that too within a short span of time. They know quite well that the world is an unforgiving place and if they do not improve they would get left far behind in the rat race. They normally look at periods of five years in which to add to their list of competencies.
The importance of honesty
More importantly than anything else people such as Peter Loftin are honest. They know that they need to be true, if to no one else to themselves at the very least. They should be able to assess themselves perfectly. This is important because it is on the basis of assessments such as these that they take the next few steps in their lives. The people who never achieve success in their lives are ones who are never honest with themselves, let alone others. These people do not suffer fools and they do not also live in a fantasy kingdom.
Being open-minded and assertive
Peter Loftin and other successful people are always open-minded and assertive. It is their clarity, which we have dealt with already in the piece, that helps them see things from a perspective that others are unable to do. It is this clarity that allows them to keep their senses working at all times and be on the lookout for opportunities. They are also inherently confident and this is the reason why they can express themselves without any doubt whatsoever. In the world of business – and in life – this is a great quality to have.
