This year you should ask yourself this very important question: Are You an Asset or a Liability?

First let’s look at what each means…

According to Webster’s Dictionary, an Asset is a valuable possession or quality, and a Liability is something owed to another: debt; a handicap: disadvantage.

So I ask you again Are You an Asset or a Liability?

Think about it…

When you network with others in person or online, most people are seeking for qualities others have that they themselves do not have, but not only are they seeking for these qualities they must also bring something to the table. Those people seeking qualities and bringing something to the table are better known as assets, they are valuable. But a person that is just seeking for qualities from others but not bringing anything to the table they are considered more of a liability.

For 2011, think about this some more, think about building relationships with others, networking and seeking for assets instead of liabilities. Brush up on being an asset yourself; know that in order for others to know you’re an asset you must stand out from the rest. Also one last thing to always remember is this great saying: “Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.” Or this one “Surround yourself with people that will lift you higher.”  Be careful who you associate with, not everyone that says they are an asset is an asset, at least to you. Learn to pick and choose which assets you want in your network, so you don’t end up with a bunch of liabilities.

With that said, Happy New Year 2011.
