The adage “It’s very good to be successful – but it is better to become a person of value” holds true. The more value (worth) that you give, the more successful you will be. Working hard on increasing your success rate alone does not guarantee success in life. The trick is undergoing lasting, life-changing worth achievement.
Everything you plan and achieve in a month/year is contingent upon the value people give to you but most importantly the value you give out determines how people value you.

The physical dimension is the tangible thing you sell, It’s the cash, the products, the services, and the equipment. The non-physical dimension is the intangible thing you sell, which are the things that you give. It’s the value you have on the inside. The non-physical dimension is the intangible thing you give. There are many ways to give value. You can give your knowledge, skills, time, attention, and energy.

How To Become A Valuable Person
There are too many people who think that being a business owner means they have to be the smartest person in the room. They think that they have to have all the answers and that if they don’t know something, they can’t ask for help.
This is not only untrue, but it’s also counterproductive. As a business owner, it’s important that you are seen as a person of value. You need to be someone that your team can look up to, and someone who is always willing to help.
In order to be seen as a person of value, you need to do the following:
1. Focus on your Personal Growth
You can’t help anybody if you don’t have what it takes because honestly, you can’t give what you don’t have. Therefore the first step to being a high-value person involves you assuming the commitment to your own self-development. Ask yourself the truth as to whether you are committed to your own personal development every day. If you are, keep on and train yourself every day. If you are not then start getting a commitment to your own personal growth. Read, learn, get trained, take risks,… do things that help you grow in wisdom, knowledge, understanding, relationship with people, skill in various aspects, etc…
2. Offer Valuable Content
One of the best ways to add value is to offer valuable content. People are drawn to those who add value to their lives, it’s only natural and this could include blog posts, e-books, whitepapers, case studies, and many more as long as it helps people find answers to their questions. Anything that helps your employees, customers, and clients solve a pain point or learn more about your industry or about specific topics related to your industry is bound to attract respect to you and your brand.
3. Provide Excellent Customer Services
The respect your clients accord you and your business are determined mostly by the way you treat them especially when they have complaints about your products and services. This means that you must always remain in contact with your customers, clients, and partners. You need to be available to them when they have complaints or concerns. Do not be quick to respond to them. Instead, be the person who makes them feel important and respected.
4. Be An Influencer And Not A Fan
People are drawn to those who are well-known in the industry. As a matter of fact, they’ll even say that they would pay higher prices for a product or service from someone well-known. This is because they respect this person’s brand and what they have to say.
5. Be Knowledgeable
When you are seen as an expert in your field, you automatically become a person of value. This doesn’t mean that you have to know everything – in fact, no one knows everything. What’s important is that you have a reputation of being someone who is good at what they do.
People who are seen as valuable are always on a journey of value. This means that they’ve always tried to add value to the lives of those around them. In fact, they are talking about this on social media, speaking to their customers, giving feedback to their employees and so many other things.
6. Value your time
As the saying goes, Time is money, because it is precious and valuable, and this is not a subject that can be repeated often. Instead of wasting your precious time on irrelevant things, Sow time instead by saving, investing, growing financial assets, and giving it back no matter what you do in life. This time can be spent in ways that quickly increase not only your sales of whom you are, but also your circle of influence, finances, or health. Time is life’s gift so know what this precious gift is and use it wisely.
