Sometimes what helps us to be successful in our professional lives is not such a great idea in our personal lives — competition is a quality that comes to mind.At the same time, we all have a limited amount of time each day to do the things that we want to do.

Simply put value is anything that people are willing to pay for.

In your professional life, the more value you can offer the more money you can make.

In your personal life, more value translates to closer relationships and strong personal growth.

The best way to add value is to find the intersection between what people are willing to pay for and what service or product you can offer that is aligned with your values, strengths and goals.

For those that do figure out their passion, most of them don’t follow their passion consistently. If you do know what you passion is, are you following it?

This is one of the main reasons why people don’t reach their goals. If you do the same thing as everyone else, it’s hard to be successful.

It is important to find the edge and then push past it.
