Let me consider two key words among others within the topic
- Career: This has been well explained virtually by all facilitators and is not strange to everyone on this platform

Driver - is a career person

VALUE: It means what is consider (someone or something) to be beneficial or important or worthy or useful in life.
Values are what you exchange your life with. These things are so persuasive, powerful, dominant and convincing that many people almost don't doubt their decisions to give their lives in exchange for them
Each of us has meaning and bring it to life through our VALUES
Values give life meaning and direction. When you interact with people and you don't have any VALUE to offer, you will need a miracle (which may not) to advance your career*
HOW TO ADD VALUE TO YOUR LIFE:
Self-Education is the surest way. There are many ways to add value to your life but the lasting way is through Self-Education.
In conclusion, when you are a person of high value, your network will always yield positive results and the right people will flow to your network.
Self-Education is a continuous process that can never expire
To advance your career, add value to your life in the right direction and the power of networking will work for you.
Many people are busy looking for connection without connecting to any VALUE; even if the connection comes, you may lack the needed requirements
