Success A t Y our B e s t
Check out these tried but not trite tips on how to be
successful at dealing with others within a business
setting, and sticking to your goal path. Please and
thank-you’s are indeed important, but if you bring into
play understanding human dynamics — prepare to
amaze! T E X T BY F R A N CE S C A C R UZ
Always walk into a scenario secure in your own skin. Self-esteem
communicates that you have healthy boundaries, know where you’re
going and realize your worth. Be graceful, stand up straight and make
your movements purposeful.
KINDNESS IS STRENGTH
You’re only as good as the project you’re presently working on. You
worked on blah blah in 1999 — but what have you done in this decade?
Be in the moment. Be respectful, willing to learn and collaborate, be
curious and open-minded.
In every human interaction, whether we like it or not, we’re selling
ourselves. Prepare previous sound bites of what you bring to the table.
Be rehearsed with what you are going to say, but organic with your
delivery, as if you just thought of it in the moment.
Express gratitude for your opportunities. Even if you had a crappy boss
in the past, solely focus on the positive side of that experience, if ever
asked to elaborate. Be thankful for the chances you receive in life, not
everyone is as blessed as you.
Every day you have a choice to either see the world through the eyes
of a pessimist or an optimist — make the right call. Positivity will open
up many doors for you. When you switch your mind to the positive
side, the energy exuded is like a success magnet.
If you don’t want something, simply refuse to accept it. For example,
you get offered something that is not aligned with your dreams of
becoming an author. Learn to say no. It’s a way to communicate your
true path to the universe.
