Achieve SUCCESS :
Don’t allow past experiences to retard your future achievements. It’s amazing what you can achieve if you believe you can do something.
Success is based on imagination, ambition and the will to work.
Five of the best tips for achieving a successful career
* Clean up your mess, start afresh
Take a break. Go for a relaxing holiday and arrive back at your workplace fresh, full of new ideas.
Get yourself organised. Clean up any clutter at your office. Be ruthless, dispose of things you don’t need.
Clean your computer and your keyboard (or replace it with a new one) and start afresh.
* Make plans
Write your plans down. Keep them in an obvious place and look at them often.
The greatest achievements come from the biggest challenges. Break them down into achievable bites and set deadlines.
Reward yourself when you reach a goal.
One of the great pleasures in life is doing what others say you cannot do.
* Set your priorities
Take control of your time. People who begin many things finish few. Set priorities and try to do one thing at a time.
Decide what things are really important and ration your time accordingly. Life is too short to waste time on unimportant trivia. You can achieve great things if you aren’t too busy doing little things.
Don’t get confused by the media and don’t become a slave to others. Seek out facts and make your own decisions.
* Learn new skills
The business world is dynamic. Unless you keep up with new developments you will be left behind.
Qualifications and new skills are easy to carry around and may open up new doors for you. Keep studying and learning new skills.
Improve your communication skills. Unless you are a skilled communicator you will not be able to get your ideas accepted.
Use simple words, all can understand. Words to stress, not to impress.
* Become an achiever. Get things done!
Earn a reputation for meeting deadlines and getting jobs done well. People judge us by what we have done.
People may doubt what you say, but they will always believe what you have achieved.
You can achieve anything you want – if you help enough people get what they want.
“Success is when you learn how to do things well – the simple things, and the difficult things”
