You Are Who You Believe You Are
Think of an "expert"(somebody with a special area of interest that shares their knowledge and experiences with other people). How do you suppose that person became an expert in their field? They probably didn't accidentally become an expert. They more likely spent thousands of hours developing their methods, processes, and information to share with others. Then, they told other people what they specialized in, and asked how they could be of service to them. Then, after several successful interactions with people, those people referred the expert to others in their sphere of influence who also saw value in what the "expert" had to offer, and forwarded the referral to others, and so on, and so on, and so on... Then, one day, seemingly overnight, this "expert" is now known as an expert by other experts in other fields. This is how it works. Who do you think you are? I know you are an expert in training (meaning that you are an expert in an area, training to be an expert; not a person who specializes in training people or animals! or maybe you are, but I digress...). What is your field of expertise? Developing relationships? Is it building a championship team? Is it conflict resolution? Is it building a business? Choose something that others want to know about, and become an expert in that field. Study those who came before you, and do what they did...but add YOU to it. Make it yours, and add value to people every day. Give it a try. Who knows, maybe a few thousand hours from now, you'll be an expert.
