Going to work should be a time for you to hone your skills and advance in your career, while also earning a paycheck and ding your best for the company you work for. Sounds easy enough, right? Then why are some girls so much more successful than other ones? Because they do certain things at work every day that give them the leg up. When you do them, you will be the most successful one in the office. Good luck!
Whether you have the position you want or are still striving for it, passion is something that successful women have and put to use every day. When you have a passion and love for your job, you’ll have motivation and desire to keep going and reach new successes all the time. If you can’t muster any kind of passion for your work, it might be time to look for something new.
Sometimes getting what you want means doing things you might otherwise never consider. The most successful women will tell you that they had to take risks to get the position they want and the respect and recognition they deserve. Chances are that if something makes you a bit nervous, it could be just the thing to make you successful.
Part of becoming successful is facing failure now and then. Even the greatest minds, richest people and most intelligent among us failed at least once or twice during their lives and careers. When you fail, try to decide how you can learn from the failure and what it can help you do differently the next time around.
Whether you’re already the boss or are still striving for the job, perfection is something that doesn’t exist. Once you come to terms with “good enough” you will be able to spread your focus around to other tasks that can make you successful. When something isn’t going perfectly, do what you can to reach your goal anyway and forget about being perfect. Once you let go of perfection, you’ll free yourself up to get where you’re going.
I’m sure you know how resentful you start to feel when the demands of everyone around you take precedent over your own wants and needs. The most successful among us will readily tell you that you have to take care of yourself or you won’t be any good to anyone else. No matter how busy and driven you are, take time each day to nurture yourself, whether you head to yoga, go to bed early or take a walk on your lunch break.
Successful women always have a to-do list and never fall under the impression that it will ever be all cleared. The important thing is to scratch off as many tasks each day as you can without burning yourself out. As you cross items off the list, you will add new ones. Once you realize that your to-do list is always going to be around, you will become the successful person you’ve always wanted to be.
There isn’t a woman on the planet who achieved her success entirely on her own. They had a professor, mentor, boss, husband, mother, sister, father, best friend or co-worker who helped them get where they are. No matter how successful you are and how much farther you want to go, staying thankful will take you so much further than you ever dreamed.
The shortest meditation practice can do wonders for your mind, body, and soul. Setting aside even just five minutes can calm your mind. Try downloading an app to slow your thoughts. It will allow you to have more room for inspiration and creativity!
Successful women have daily routines. Waking up at the same time and having a routine checklist helps you to follow through with all of your responsibilities. Don't forget to pencil in time throughout the day to take a break and get some fresh air!
Start every morning by writing what you want to accomplish for the day. This can be daily, weekly, or monthly goals of what you want to accomplish at work. As the day/weeks progress, crossing things off of your list gives such a sense of satisfaction.
What’s your success story? Who helped you get there?
