After watching John Maxwell’s “How to be REAL success” I’ve learned many things. We can apply REAL success to our lives by having good relationships with the people around us, equipping yourself or your teammates with the skills and knowledge to reach your goals, choosing to have a positive attitude, and leading your followers in an effective way.

When you have good relationships with people, you can achieve more. Working as a team is better than working alone, there are more brains and ideas. In my life, I can make my relationship with the people around me better by spending time with them, earning their trust, and working together.

For your team to reach goals, they need to be equipped with the right skills and knowledge. I can improve on this by teaching my team, telling them what they need to do, and trusting their ability.

The most important thing I learned is that you can choose what your attitude is. I’ve always thought it depended on the things happening in your life, the fortunate and unfortunate things, basically what life chose for you to feel. But you can turn your attitude from negative to positive or positive to negative with your choice. If you didn’t wake up on the right side of the bed, you can change your feelings to be positive. When you have a positive attitude, you’ll be more productive. You will be driven to achieve your goals and try to reach success. When you are negative, you don’t feel like anything is worth it and that you should be sad all the time. When you are positive, you’ll be happy. With this knowledge, I can apply this to my daily life by changing my attitude to a more pleasant one. This way, the people around me won’t be so uncomfortable and I’ll be in a better mood, leading to a better life.

Last but not least, you need to be a good leader. In the video, I learned about the Law of the Lid. If the leader was a 5, then the followers or company couldn’t go above that number. In order to be successful, the leader has to improve their own skills for his/her team to go higher. I need to work on my own leadership skills by volunteering for activities, helping everyone, and being a bit more eager.
