All Titans have one thing in common: they are all great LEADERS. Paraphrasing Nelson Mandela: “Titans are masters of their fate, and captains of their souls.”
Whether you are an entrepreneur, employee, athlete, artist, or monk, here are 6 Titan Tips that will help you become a better leader:
Be a good listener. As a Titan, you need to listen more than you speak. As Epictetus said, “We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.” You need to listen to your shareholders, team members, suppliers, customers,… It doesn’t mean you will always need to do what they say. But if you are not a good listener, you are going to lose a lot of growth opportunities.
Create things you can be proud of. Ask yourself, is this going to make people’s lives better? If you create something exceptional that brings tons of value to people, the byproduct is you will become successful. It’s a simple as that.
Promote. You can have a great product or service, but unless people know about it, it will remain a great, hidden product or service. Therefore, promote it! If you are thinking ‘Well, I’m not a business person, so this doesn’t apply to me.’ Think twice! Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama had no qualms about promoting and asking money for their causes.
Build a Titan team. Find the right people, and treat them well. Praise them when necessary, and when they make a mistake, let them know without killing their enthusiasm.
Go for it! Don’t wait to have all the pieces to the puzzle before you start. Start now, and you will find the pieces to the puzzle along the way.
