I am always asked by people I speak to “How can I make more money”? This question seems to plague most people, and when I tell them the answer they are surprised how simple the answer actually is. If you want to make more money, then increase your value to others.
The money you make is in direct proportion that the value you bring to the table for your employer. Let me put it this way. Even at the height of my employment for someone else, I never ever forgot one simple thing, and I used to say it to myself all the time. I work for Jeff Moore incorporated and my company just happens to have the use of my services at this time. What I mean by that is simple. You work for you. You make yourself as good as you can be, and you always give your employer 110% percent when it comes to effort and talent, but do not ever be confused regarding the fact that you are responsible for making yourself the best you can be. In other words, you must continually work to build your personal value.
If you have a high value and can do things well that others either can’t do well or can’t do at all, then this makes you valuable. If you are more knowledgeable on certain subject or on how to effectively do certain task, then you are more valuable. If you can sell more than anyone else at your firm then you are more valuable. If you can do the job of multiple people then you are more valuable.
Growing Your Personal Value
The first key to building personal value is to understand that personal value will not only dictate what you make now, but the power of knowing how to continually build your personal power will guarantee that the money you earn will continue to grow as your value does. So once you start to understand the importance of personal value, then you simply need to go about growing your personal value.
How To Build Your Value
First things first, start to read every day. Read one hour a day about your field. This will immediately give you more knowledge. Growing your knowledge base is a sure fire way to grow your personal value. Next you must find the task(s) at your company that drives or demands more pay. Once you determine what those are then learn how to do it better than anyone else at your company. Let me give you a hint. If you can become the go to person on tasks that are critical and you are the only one who really knows how to do that task, that is job security. It is also a great way to grow your personal value. Finally, one other idea that drives personal value is being the go to guy or gal at your company that when the “you know what” hits the fan that the boss comes looking for you. If I am looking for you in this situation, then I guarantee you are going to get paid, and paid well.
