One of my readers recently asked: “I like the idea of building a career based on strengths and skills. What are good skills to acquire? Skills that help you to generate income.”
That’s one of the best questions I’ve received. I often write about how Peter Drucker and many other business thinkers believe that you should generate more value in the market place.
And that the best way to generate value is by acquiring valuable skills. But what are skills that are actually valuable to organizations? In my experience, there are many skills that are useful.
But there are 7 skills that actually produce income because they instantly impact the bottom line of an organization. I only stick to skills that every professional can and should acquire. Here they are.

Freedom. It’s the highest aim in life. But for years, I was unfree in a free world. Unwanted responsibilities kept me caged.
In my latest book, I share how I finally became free. The book is called What It Takes To Be Free. And it’s for people who believe personal freedom is the most important thing in life.
In our free world, we can do what we want, spend time with people we like, and have a career that gives us joy. And yet, we don’t use our freedom. Why is that?
The problem is that we’re held captive by ourselves. On a deeper level, we all strive for the same thing: To be free. It’s in our nature.

Life is a series of games. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win. We all know this.
And yet, we often keep on playing games we lose. Why is that? Don’t you like winning? I do. You know what I don’t like? Losing.
I don’t mind losing a few games, but overall, I want to win. And I don’t think you’re any different. I’ve never met a person who said, “I LOVE to lose.”
That person doesn’t exist. People who pretend they don’t mind losing gave up on life years ago. I get it. Life is hard and when you lose a lot, you become numb. That’s why this concept is so important.
