Many of us dream of a dizzying career. The imagination draws a separate office overlooking the cloudless sky, a company car, perhaps without blinking, but with a personal driver, a warning secretary and “thirty-five thousand one couriers. Beauty! But only how to achieve all this? What qualities will allow to achieve success and get ahead of competitors?
Careers do not waste their time on empty dreams. They strive to make their dreams come true. For a fairy tale to become a reality, it is necessary to set a goal and think over the ways of its realization. And at the same time, soberly assess their own capabilities. Still need to map out a way to achieve the goal, to present a route on which you will move towards the dream. And begin to act.
- Planning your future.
Careers are constantly working on their own future to meet it with all their might. They strive to prove that they are worthy of a higher position than they are now. And they do not hesitate to show it to others, both in appearance, knowledge and ambition. If for a higher position, which is claimed by a person seeking to succeed in a career, he will need to expand professional opportunities, he will acquire the necessary skills: take a course of professional development, learn a foreign language, learn a related field in the profession. So in the present career lays the foundation for his future. Therefore, he is always ready to do more than what is required of him.
In order to do more and do everything in time, you need discipline. If there is no habit of working regularly, day after day, it will have to be developed. Of course, it will be difficult to get used to the fact that life goes on schedule. Not everyone can tolerate a busy schedule and orderly actions. So, to avoid disruptions, you have to rest. On vacation and on weekends, of course, we are free to do whatever you want: to sleep, walk and have fun. The opportunity to relax restores strength. Such pauses are necessary, but they should not be too long, otherwise return to life on a strict schedule will be unbearable.
- Taking care of people.
If you want to succeed in your career, you must learn to take care not only of yourself, but also of other people. A high position implies the ability to work with people, to be responsible for them. For a leader to be able to effectively manage his subordinates, he must have confidence in them. People support those who pay attention to them, who help solve their problems. By taking care of people, you shouldn’t wait for an immediate return, it’s a long-term contribution.
It seems that fans of psychological extremes will be disappointed, with fights without rules and walks on the heads of colleagues actions of real careerists have little in common. A good career is built, not won. So you will have to strengthen, not destroy, create, not destroy.
