Who is Successful people don’t do different things: they do things differently. A whole of us move up and down the whole day in a fixed routine like tram cars to and fro on their self same rails forever till we have no value and are sold as scrap iron. But why so? We all think we are round pegs in square holes: leading a choice-less life as if life is thrust upon us! We often envy the man or woman who succeeds? And when we don’t envy, we certainly wish we could do as well as they have done.
1. Make Strong Career Planning
Many of us have physicals, visit the eye doctor and dentist, and do a myriad of other things on an annual basis, so why not career planning?
Find a day or weekend once a year — more often if you feel the need or if you’re planning a major career change — and schedule a retreat for yourself. Try to block out all distractions so that you have the time to truly focus on your career — what you really want out of your career, out of your life.
By making career planning an annual event, you will feel more secure in your career choice and direction — and you’ll be better prepared for the many uncertainties and difficulties that could lie ahead.
2. Look Your way Since Last Career Plan
One of your first activities — whenever you take on career planning — is to spend time looking out your job and career way since the last time you did any sort of career planning.
While you should not dwell on your past, taking the time to review and reflect on the path — whether straight and narrow or one filled with any curves and dead-ends — will help you plan for the future.
Once you’ve mapped your past, take the time to reflect on your course — and note why it looks the way it does. Are you happy with your path? Could you have done things better? What might you have done differently? What can you do differently in the future?
3.Change factor of your life.
Change is a factor of life; everybody changes, as do our likes and dislikes. Something we loved doing two years ago may now give us displeasure. So always take time to reflect on the things in your life — not just in your job — that you feel most strongly about.
4.Confidence of self :
The first success is faith in oneself. Who is never failing self-confidence is mistaken by others as conceit, ego, and they are perceived as adamant, boastful people. And we tend to pay heed to perceptions. We often forgo our great plans because someone else has discouraged us. If you have not reached the top yet, it is because you allow yourself to be influenced by what people say, or you have taken too many opinions and shared your plan with too many people, stop it!
5.Self-Confidence Vs Pride :
Kindly understand. What is Pride and what is self confidence. We must not confuse this self confidence with Pride. Pride can be of many many types: False pride, arrogant pride, snobbish pride and pardonable pride. They are simple to understand by the words themselves. Except for the last one, all the others are an outcome of a petty mind. All of us have a supervisor who steals our credit for his own; but it is even worse when supervisor turns the idea down to you as worthless and then presents it as his own great idea!That is petty!Great minds always acknowledge greatness in others. Do you have a great or petty mind? Try this test for yourself. Record the number of times in the coming week you praise the good work of others and appreciate or applaud their efforts. To start, Just count how many sincere ‘Thanks’ have you extended? Why does the poor give more tips and the rich give less in a restaurant? Because the poor doesn’t want to reveal he is poor and the rich doesn’t want to reveal he is rich. But even if they did let the others know, if it is true and they are confident, NOBODY will take it away from them! It’s the same with us.
