Business cares about enterprise.

Leadership cares about people.

Entrepreneurship cares about flexibility.

Creativity cares about innovation.

What you care about defines who you are.

When you care, you want to do your very best–and that commitment and energy are a powerful force.

If you want to be successful in your confidence, business, leadership, entrepreneurship, and creativity, be thoughtful about what you’re giving your care to.

Here are 10 areas that are well worth caring about if you want to truly succeed.

1. Care about how you treat others.
The ones you’re waving goodbye to on your way up just might be the ones you wave hello to on your way back down.

2. Care about your personal growth.
If you want to move confidently in the directions of your dreams and goals, invest your time and energy in your own personal growth. Learn to work harder on yourself than you do at any other job.

3. Care about your goals.
As the old saying goes, a goal without a plan is just a wish. When you care about your goals, you commit to seeing them through. People who care have clear, written goals accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than those people who wing it.

4. Care about scaring yourself.
Most of us avoid going to places–physical and emotional–that frighten us. But when you step into the space of fear, when you befriend fear and don’t allow it to shame you, you may begin to realize that it’s not as frightening as you’d thought.

5. Care about how you spend your time.
Time is free but it’s a nonrenewable resource; once it’s lost, you can never get it back. Care for time as you would any valuable asset.
