Career Development – What Employers Search For In An Employee

Wednesday, September 30, 2009 | comments

Qualification is important when it comes to securing a good job especially now that the competition for limited vacancies is quite high. The world wide economic crisis has also contributed greatly and many are losing their livelihoods thanks to job retrenchments.

Most of us when looking for a job, we concentrate our energies on seeking for a job that will fulfill our needs and hence grant us some kind of status among our peers. I think it is a mistake to just focus our attention on personal income and forgetting the vision of our employer. While it is imperative to have personal goals, we must also consider achieving standards that our employers have set.

Apart from your qualifications, employers look out for your capability to perform assigned duties. They also seek to know whether you have initiative or you are the type that needs to be supervised in order to work. This is a way to measure your confidence level hence your leadership qualities. When you are keen and work towards moving up the corporate ladder, proves to your employer that you are determined to grow your career. This will make you gain confidence from the management.

Work on your attitude and be compatible with the people you are working with, whether they are your juniors or seniors. This brings into focus your integrity and respect for workmates hence shows that you are a team player which it is an integral part of growing a company.

Do what you can to improve your communication skills. This plays a major part when it comes to dealing with customers, suppliers and even colleagues. Learning how to express yourself can land you into the good books of the management.

Personal Development - One Way Of Increasing Your Knowledge Base.

There are several ways of increasing your knowledge and one of the best is by reading books. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” – Charles Dickens. This goes to show that life’s destiny is actually in your hands. You are the one that determines and shapes your own future. By reading widely you equip yourself with necessary tools that can help you face life.

It is better to buy books rather than borrowing, since with purchasing your own books you can always re-read as many times as you can. In addition, you can come up with your own library and archive your books. But this does not mean you should not read, register with a good library where you can borrow books.

Reading is a good means of escaping from the daily hassles of life. Therefore, whenever you are stressed, rather than going out for a drink go to your library and pick some literature that can uplift you. Your collection should also include books that are funny and entertaining to read, they come in handy during those day when you are feeling down.

The bible is a book that can teach you a lot about the issues of life so it is advisable to have one. Seek for books that are motivating and offer teachings on various aspects of life. Inspirational books like Little Women can help you master the art of patience.

Knowledge is power thus read a wide range of books from recognized and also unknown authors. Concentrating on recognized authors alone may rob you the chance to discover some great ideas.

The Requirements of A Good And Working Budget:

Sunday, September 27, 2009 | comments

Financial planning is the key to managing your money. The moment money begins controlling you realize that it is the beginning of financial mayhem. Individuals that have made it in life are known to have carefully constructed their finances by drawing a budget which they stuck to religiously. A monthly budget prevents you from things like impulse buying since you will purchase only what appears on your budget list.

It therefore means that there are attributes that constitute a good financial plan. One vital element of a working budget is keeping track of your expenditure. I earlier mentioned about impulse buying, in addition to preventing over spending, budgeting keeps you focused on what you really need.

A financial plan that works needs to be realistic. It is not advisable to set unachievable goals by being too ambitious. Whenever you choose to include in a budget should be determined by your monthly income and must never be at the expense of your basic needs. This does not mean you cannot have fun or buy that dream car. Some people are known to deny themselves a decent leaving in the name of saving for the future; this should not be the case.

Ultimately, prioritize and differentiate between the most important expenses and the least important, since it will help you distinguish your spending habits that you were maybe not aware of. Discovering your spending weakness would be of no benefit to you if you do not take divisive steps to amend such habits. All attempts to plan your finances would be simply futile if you fail to check unnecessary expenditure.

Points To Consider When Applying For A Job Application:

| comments

The economic crisis has resulted in many people losing their employment as companies try to cut down on their operating cost. But it does not mean that all organizations are doing the same, some are still recruiting, only that the competition level is very high considering the limited vacancies available.

Being honest in your job application is enough to make you gain favor from your future employers. Studies have proved that about ninety percent of hiring employers avoid a candidate who cheats in his job application, however good or qualified the candidate may be. Dishonesty is a vice that every manager cannot stand.

It is also important to follow instructions listed on the job vacancy notice to the latter. Failure to adhere to the instructions would result in the employer not short listing your application. Therefore, stick to the basic directives which would include how your application should be packaged and delivered.

Most applicants are in such a hurry and fail to peruse through their application. It is imperative to make sure that you have included all the necessary documents. Also confirm whether your letter of application is grammatically correct; you can ensure this by letting someone else to proofread for you.

Errors in your application letter demonstrate your carelessness hence a manager will not hesitate to short listing you. Researches conducted by some consultancy firms have shown that employers eliminate job applications that have just two typing errors.

It therefore goes to show how you need to be articulate and precise when it comes to applying for that dream job.

How You And Society Contribute Towards The Achievement Of Personal Success:

“Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation, for it is better to be alone than be in bad company”. These are the words of George Washington which I happen to completely concur with. In order to be the best in business, career or family you have to affiliate yourself with individuals that add value to your life.

To positively impact society you need to implement strategies that will physically, spiritually and mentally add worth to your personality. It’s really disappointing to see people getting involved in activities that are detrimental to their personal growth. It is a high time parents and guardians take up their responsibility of instilling good morals to their children and especially teenagers, so that they become dependable citizens.

Someone once said “show me your friends and I will tell you what kind of a person you are”. Peer pressure contributes greatly to how we behave and later become in life. Therefore choose your friends wisely, that is if you desire to succeed in life. Encircle yourself with people who will motivate and encourage you to achieve.

In order to succeed, you need to stretch yourself to be the best you can be. Giving up is a trait associated to failures while on the other hand achievers never give up until they attain success. It is true that life is full of obstacles but also realize that challenges are there to be overcome.

The cost of failure is to much a burden to bear, you would rather work hard to realize your dreams and experience the sweet feeling of accomplishment.

Financial Planning And Why It is Important To Have A Budget:

| comments

According to the words of John Maxwell, “a budget is people telling their money what to do instead of wondering where it went.” This then brings the question, why is it vital to budget your income? It would be wrong for me not to tell you the whole truth which is, the perfect road map to achieving financial freedom is by budgeting.

A budget acts as the compass that directs and maps your course towards wealth creation, not to mention it helps to improve your living standards. Have you ever wondered how a ship captain navigates through the high seas yet there are on paths that he can follow? He is guided by the help of a compass; it assists him to know his current location and helps him steer his ship through the waters until he gets to his destination.

Financial confident people work with a budget. A good budget ensures you live within your means hence avoid unnecessary spending. It also helps you save part of your income. In order for your budget to work for you then it should meet some standards. But one of the most crucial elements of a good financial plan is that it should always be based on your financial goals.

Budgeting is not just about keeping track of your expenditure but it also includes helping you meet your personal financial targets in life. This is because, without financial goals in life you will never be in control of your money. To improve your financial status, start planning your finances carefully.

Dealing With Procrastination Before It Ruins Your Career

Saturday, September 26, 2009 | comments

Whenever something needs to be done then the best time to do it is immediately. By postponing you are bound not to accomplish much since you will never run short of tasks that require your attention. In addition, when things to do pile up, it usually results to confusion.

Therefore, do not shelve duties that need attention today, claiming that you will focus on them tomorrow since it may be too late by then. Procrastination can easily ruin your career, for example, at your place of work you are expected to perform your duties diligently and also finish on time without being pushed to do so though sometimes these tasks may be tedious.

When you procrastinate then your performance at work will definitely be below par and as a result your employer will always be unsatisfied with your performance. I therefore do not need to inform you that your boss will find it hard to recommend you for a promotion.

The time to deal with procrastination is now because if you do not then you are in the process of ruining your career. Your boss may just start by verbally reprimanding you but sooner or later he may get tired. I love the way William James puts it when he says “Nothing is as fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task”.

I hope now you have resolved to always attend to your duties on time. It would even help to report early at work and attend to anything that is pending. Avoid postponing what can be attended to today; it would really help if you prioritize your duties. “There are a million ways to lose a work day, but not even a single way to get one back”. Tom Demarco.

Are you always in a dilemma and wondering whether you will do that presentation and get your audience full attention? This question is asked by many people especially those who are doing a business presentation for the first time. Preparing yourself adequately is the key to avoiding embarrassment.

The first thing that you must do it research thoroughly, the internet is rich with information on various topics that are relevant to your presentation. Also, read books that are related to what you will be presenting. Being well informed makes you gain confidence when doing a presentation.

Human beings are usually reached effectively visually; hence as you are communicating to your audience it is important to prepare visual aids. For example, the use slide show presentation would be most suitable as you explain orally. Therefore, prepare a power point presentation before hand and you can be sure of capturing your audience attention.

During the presentation pose some questions to your audience so as to measure weather they are getting what you are presenting. Also, use convincing and persuading language that the audience can relate to. Though sometimes you may have limited time, it is advisable to set aside a session and allow your audience to ask questions.

If you are a first time presenter then maintaining eye contact with your audience can be quite intimidating, the best thing to do is to look slightly above their heads. This will ensure your words follow systematically and with time you gain confidence and you will be able look at your audience directly.

To be a good presenter takes time and patience, you are bound to fumble now and then but do not panic whenever you make a mistake. Compose yourself and carry on; before you know it you will perfect the art of presentation.

Self Improvement And Tips On Setting Standards In Life:

Monday, September 21, 2009 | comments

In order to make a mark in life you need to be aggressive and determined. The key thing is to try and work on being creative. Being innovative will help you to go a long way in making sure you succeed in anything you set to do, be it business or otherwise. For example, millions of people are venturing into business; therefore you must take serious measures in order to make an impact in society. However, lack of creativity and aggressiveness has seen the failure of great business ideas while others have simply never taken off.

In our minds exist great ideas, but the challenge is how to activate our brains to come up with strategic plans to positively affect our lives. We are scared of challenges and yet they help us to think, and it’s from these thoughts that great business ideas sprout. The reason that I thought it is important to mention this is because for you to make niche for yourself in this arena called life you need to be creative and set standards.

Load yourself with information pertaining to what you want to achieve in life. In short, be the one setting the standards and others will follow you. Then from there, do not relax, but rather keep upgrading your standards, so the adage, “it is easy to get to the top but staying there is the challenge.”

Setting standards does not come easily; you are required to be patient and seek to acquire knowledge from others who are more experienced. Constantly, measure your progress; this can be achieved by having a mentor or advisor whom you can be accountable to.

How To Make Sure You Secure A Comfortable Retirement.

Saturday, September 19, 2009 | comments

In these hard economic times planning ahead and sticking to your plans is a quite a challenge, but fundamental. My advice is that you need to begin planning for retirement the moment you land your first job. The notion that tomorrow never comes is misplaced, for me it is lack of focus. As we grow older, years appear to move faster than when we were younger. It therefore means that we need to take decisive steps and implement a retirement plan.

Learn to have a budget from the moment you start getting an income. Differentiate between your needs and wants. Budgeting will help you avoid overspending and hence have some money that you can save. It also assists you to prioritize and only purchase items that you actually need.

Protect yourself through affordable insurance policies. Old age sometimes comes with myriad of health complications and hence you may need a sound medical cover to cushion yourself against such unforeseen incidents.

It is important to also set goals that are achievable. One important thing that would guarantee a comfortable retirement is investment. Whether you decide to invest in a business or acquire assets, try to make sure you come up with ways of making money that will not require too much supervision.

Get financial advisors who will help you invest your saving wisely. Financial advisors will instruct you of the best banking options that cost the least to operate and assist you borrow wisely if need be. A good indicator that you are on the right track would be having an emergency fund that can sustain you for at least six months.

Self Improvement: The Key To Achieving And Accomplishing You Visions:

Thursday, September 17, 2009 | comments

From dawn to the time you the sun sets, we are usually faced with myriad of issues that need our attention. Whether at home or at our places of work, the tasks required of us can be overwhelming. In order to ease the day’s activities it is important to plan your day, in short prioritize. Planning is absolutely vital for self development. If you do not plan then achieving success in life will always remain a mirage.

It is important to be alert and be able to forecast what will be trendy in future. Constantly, the world is changing in all fields and it therefore becomes important to change with the times in order to remain relevant now and in the future. Successful people in society are those who can foresee or predict what will be needed if future and go ahead to plan on how they will take advantage of the situation.

Prudent planning also involves setting goals and having a vision for tomorrow. Some people like saying that “tomorrow never comes,” I completely disagree with them. This notion makes some people not to plan claiming that tomorrow will take care of it’s self. Having achievable goals will direct you to the path that will lead you to your vision.

It will be futile to plan and not take steps to implement what you have set to do. Do you have plans that you have shelved arguing that you are waiting for favorable conditions so as to execute? I would suggest that you take the initiative and put the plans into action today.

What To Consider Before Accepting A Job Promotion

| comments

Most often, the best performing employees with great interpersonal skills and experience earn a promotion at their work places. Because of the great qualities one possesses, the management may recommend an individual to be promoted. So then, what should you reflect on before accepting the new post? Do you just accept the position without any queries?

It is of uttermost importance that the post you accept is in line with your career aspirations. This would prevent a scenario where you waste time carrying out tasks that delay the realization of your professional dreams.

When you accept a new role, you need time to learn what is required of you. It will be of interest to you to know that your new supervisor will allow you some time to settle in.

It does help to weigh your skills and academic qualifications against what is expected of you in your new position. If you fail to check your skills you may be frustrated while trying to meet your targets and you realize that you do not know how to go about a task, yet your deadline to deliver is getting closer.

You also need to evaluate whether the responsibilities in the new job outweigh the benefits of the promotion. You may take up a job that robs you off all your personal time and risks your health despite offering you a good pay.

Have others turned down the offer to take up the promotion which is now being offered to you? Find out why others rejected the offer and see whether you are up to the game despite the challenges that have been cited by others.

Remember you are a valuable employee and that is why you are being offered a promotion. Do not be desperate to take up a job that will leave you regretting.

Self Improvement In relation To Career Development And Promotion At Work:

| comments

Self development includes improving your personal financial standing and developing your career. On this article I will deal in depth on ways of enhancing your career and personal life in general.

A quality that will help enhance your career is to be prepared to learn and acquire new skills as pertaining to your profession. Enroll in courses that will increase your knowledge base and thus boost your curriculum vitae. There are great correspondence courses on the internet which you can take advantage of even though you are busy at your place of work.

Taking initiative is a value that every employer seeks in every employee. This is a sign of leadership qualities and your employer will be quick to notice. In case you notice something needs to be done take the initiative to attend to it no matter how trivial it may appear, you may never know who is watching.

Be it in a social or business setting, honesty is absolutely important. Being truthful is a virtue that has to be observed by any person desiring to develop his or her career. With many people nowadays lacking trustworthiness, you can imagine the advantage you will have over others.

A value that cannot be taken lightly is being knowledgeable about the company you are working for. Read through the vision and the mission statement of your organization and if possible cram them. Get to know the board of directors and what the company intends to achieve every financial year. Then align yourself to the firm’s visions.

Career development is more than acquiring academic qualifications; you need to combine this with several personal attributes to make you stand out from the rest.

Career Development – How To Get Into The Good Books Of The Management:

| comments

If you intend to climb up the management ladder then you must stand out from the rest. We all know how difficult it is to get promoted at our places of work. Though many people complain of favoritism, it is important to be perceived as competent and obedient by your boss; that is if you want develop your career.

According to a research done by a Canadian institution that offers information services, having a good attendance record at work will go a long way in finding favor with your boss. When you realize that you will be late or you will not be able to get to work, it is imperative to call and inform your manager. At all costs, avoid arriving late to appointments whether with your boss, colleagues or customers. Being on time helps you to be relaxed and focused.

Dressing is another aspect to take into serious consideration. Most companies have an unwritten law when it comes to dress code. Though it may not be stated on your appointment letter, take time to find out what the company’s dress code is and dress appropriately.

It would be wrong not to mention that you must always have a positive attitude towards your work. This way you will always be prepared to perform your work diligently and hence improve your career.

Employers are known to love team players. Realize that no man is an island and for any business to work there is need for cohesiveness. Also, be someone that can take advice from your juniors and seniors. Seek guidance whenever you do not understand something and be willing to be corrected by your bosses or colleagues whenever you are wrong. This is a sign to show that you are someone that can work with others.

Achievement - Power And Ability Of A Positive Mind

| comments

“Attitude is everything!” This statement carries so much truth that if every one took time to think about it and make necessary adjustment in life, then our lives would change for the better. Many times in our quest for self improvement, we have concentrated on changing and improving many things but our attitude.

Attitude is a person’s frame of mind. It is the mindset that a person has that helps him to develop a world view. Attitude is expressed by how we respond to issues. One person once said, “Life is not what happens to you but how you respond to issues”. Two individuals may encounter a similar negative situation but how they will each respond will determine the outcome.

One of the main attitudes we need to embrace is cultivating a positive mindset or attitude. As you read through history you encounter ordinary individuals who did extra ordinary things. Moses in the Bible was known to stammer in his speech but he became the deliverer. Abraham Lincoln on the other hand educated himself; he had no formal education but became the most acclaimed president in the history of the United States.

Mother Teresa, a simple nun in Calcutta also became an icon through her acts of mercy and philanthropy. The list could go on and on. What characterized these people was a positive mindset, they all believed in possibilities and they responded decisively for the good of humanity.

Regardless of your present status and condition, you can accomplish anything with positive thinking. There is power that is released through positive thinking and once it is released, it will always work for you. Positive thinking acts to enhance your abilities and virtues. Nothing is impossible to him that believes.

4 Major Values Of Bringing The Best Out Of Others To Your Benefit:

| comments

Life is much more than what goes on in your own life. It is also about others. The most fulfilled person in life is the person who seeks to add value in others’ lives. If for example, you are a millionaire who is surrounded by paupers, unless you get interested in changing their fate and status, they will indirectly affect your life.

Here are four ways to bring out the best in others:

  1. Value people

People are the greatest asset you have. Your ability to harness their potentials will determine your own success. Many times we use people selfishly to our own advantage. We stay with them because of what they can do for us, not for who they are. The key to success is to value others as individuals. People don’t care how much you know, they want to know how much you care.

  1. Value People’s intentions

In your conversations with friends, do you always talk about your hobbies and interests or do you seek to know what they are interested in? The human nature is such that people will always be interested with you when you get interested with their interests. This is the key to “charisma”. Why is it important? Because this shows that you desire to know other people personally.

  1. Be valuable

Diamond is the most valuable stone in the world hence it doesn’t need to advertise itself; its value is its worth. We can increase our value and worth through acquiring knowledge and information. Another way is by generosity.

  1. Focus on eternal virtues

We all get inspired by people of great virtues and ethics. It is then important to get connected to God. He improves our characters and we become people of high moral value, likable and relevant in society. There is eternity in the heart of every human being and God is the right connection.

An Absolutely Important Step To Take In Order To Achieve Success In Life:

Wednesday, September 16, 2009 | comments

Vision has been defined as the ability to see a preferred future with clarity, coupled with strategic thinking to bring about a preferred future. One visually impaired person was approached by a colleague who tried to sympathize with him because of his inability to see visually but he interjected by saying, “It is better to be visually impaired than to have sight without vision”. We can only capture a vision through the eyes of the heart and this comes about when we take stock of our desires, abilities and how we can use them in meeting our needs in community.

As you look around you will notice so many people with abilities which are lying dormant, this is mainly because they lack a vision. One wise man commented saying, “Without vision, people cast off restraints”. Just try to imagine a pilot flying a plane without a compass. No matter how talented he is, he will certainly miss the cause. Therefore, as we navigate through life, we will need a strong sense of vision to help us navigate through the various issues of life.

The first thing that you need to consider is “what do I have at hand now?” Once you have considered what you have at your disposal, immediately set goals that will give you an urgency to begin doing something about your vision. The greatest enemy to your vision is procrastination. The old adage is quite true, “Tomorrow never comes.” Therefore, implement that business idea today.

Setting goals is a vital tool in helping you realize your vision. A goal is a dream with a deadline. So, consider having short term and long term goals because they will help you work within a timeframe and also give you something to evaluate your progress.

Self Development - Bring Your Dreams And Visions Into Reality:

| comments

It is a universal principle that there is a seed of greatness in each and every one of us. Ask any person and they will tell you that they have a dream they desire to see fulfilled in their lifetime, but the fact of the matter is that very few ever see their life’s dreams come to pass.

Many people live a very disoriented and disappointed life; some have resigned to fate saying, “Whatever will happen, let it happen”. Shattered dreams are the order of the day. However, I believe that should not be the case. Young or old, you can retrieve your dream blueprint, wipe off the dust and begin to dream again because every dream is achievable.

The first thing that we need to do is “see it”, meaning the dream should move beyond wishful thinking to the knowledge that it is attainable. Begin to see yourself living the dream. Conviction is the hallmark of someone who has seen the dream with the eye of determination and passion is the fuel that propels a dreamer to a desired goal. Conviction does not work with options; it is always singular in focus.

The second thing after “seeing it” is “embracing” the dream, meaning that you begin to own the dream and make it a part of you. Embracing the dream leads one into strategic planning and setting goals that lead an individual towards achieving success. This demonstrates that you have owned the dream even before its actual fulfillment.

After embracing your dream then you have to change your confession. Your speech has a way of charting your course. Your mouth is like your compass or a steering wheel which drives you towards your vision. What kind of life do you want to live? Then begin to speak it into existence.

Key To Success – Attributes That Contribute Towards Self Development

| comments

We live in a changing world where information and technology changes so fast that we can hardly keep up with the pace. As a matter of fact, the only constant thing is change itself. The things that were considered trendy some few years ago are now obsolete and without any real value.

As I interact with many people I realize that we are looking for values that are unchanging, that will stabilize us in this current tough world. I believe there are some universal truths that determine success in life and it would be imperative to consider them.

Being swift and fast will not necessarily guarantee that you will win in the race of life; neither is life’s battle won by the strongest. In fact, wealth and success is not definite to the most brilliant and skill in itself is not the surest way to fame and fortune. These attributes are good but the truth is that they are not enough.

Success in life belongs to those that are prepared. Someone once said, “Life will always give you opportunities but what you do with the opportunities will determine your destiny.” We must always be aware that these opportunities have a life span and they are not there to stay.

How then will you get prepared? First, we need to have keen insight and recognize when opportunities come along. We must always be ready to make calculated risks through analyzing all facts both negative and positive.

The future belongs to the bold and smart thinkers. Therefore, we need to utilize every opportunity that life presents to us. A good decision is a bad decision when it is made at the wrong time.

Personal Development – An Attribute That Will Positively Impact Your Life:

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 | comments

Talk to anyone that has made it in life and you will discover that nothing in life comes easy. People like Bill Gates spent sleepless night coming up with ways to ensure that every home had a computer. It takes courage and determination to achieve success in this competitive world. It is upon you to be responsible in whatever you do, that is if you want to positively impact your life.

People who will never stop to consider the consequences of their actions are irresponsible. Vices are usually signs of irresponsible character. What I know for sure is that those individuals who aren’t responsible will easily be enticed into drugs, crime or prostitution. They neither care for what happens to their bodies nor give a damn about social values.

It is said that, growing up is compulsory but maturity is optional. Regardless of age or statues one can always choose to be responsible. My advice to the youth; even if you are currently being provided for, realize that one day you will need to take care of yourself, therefore start training and gearing yourself to be independent.

Self reliance will help you to be able to manage your family, business or whatever you choose to acquire. It is a great satisfaction to see things you have achieved but remember there is a price to pay.

Time waits for no man and tomorrow may be too late, start being responsible and manage your time well by prioritizing and attending to issues that will add value to your life.

Opportunities - Creating Opportunities For Yourself

| comments

Since each one of us is unique, we must strive to excel in whatever we do. We need to concentrate on that which is most important in our life at present. Working hard and smart is the only thing that can shape one’s destiny.

In life you must create opportunities for yourself. Do not wait for opportunities to find you but rather seek and identify them. Chances will never come but should be conjured from challenges. Behind every problem lies a solution hence an opportunity waiting to be seized. If you really have a desire to excel then you will succeed because necessity is the mother of invention.

Our creativity in imagination should be unlimited and one should always be creative and patient in order to grab any opportunities that may arise. Great ideas come into the world as gently as doves. One man said that, “If you keep your eyes and ears wide open, one day a butterfly will land on your palm”.

In a world full of competition for scarce resources and chances, adaptability and flexibility is needed in identifying chances. In order to fully fit in society, one is supposed to fully use his creative imagination to find a way to earn his living and survive through this rapidly changing time.

It is never too late to make the most of who you are. Actually, it is not over till its over. For those who are focused, goal oriented and purposeful, success comes their way ultimately but for those who are disillusioned and lazy, failure is a constant companion.

How Endeavoring Will Make You Achieve success In Life:

| comments

Usually, the road to success is not easy as there are no shortcuts. Nothing good comes easy in life. Most times you have to sweat for everything you get and as you work at achieving success, you realize that challenges are many and recurrent. The only things that come at little or no cost are the worthless ones. So then, if you really need to achieve something then you must be ready to pay the price.

Have you ever heard these words? “At first I was afraid to try. But once I made my first attempt, I knew there was no turning back!” One shouldn’t harbor any fear of failure in their mind. You should seek to exploit your full potential all the time. In fact, this is the best form of time management, as you have little or no time to spare. It also does help a lot to be positive minded. You should think of the best out of every situation. A positive mind keeps you focused on your goal and gives you the drive you need to reach the top.

One must be ready to try again and again until he or she succeeds and must never give up or come up with excuses. A man may fail but he isn’t a failure until he begins blaming someone else. It is only through trying that persistent people become successful.

I choose to be self-confident, to never find a challenge too big to be tackled and overcome. All things will always remain possible in my mind until proven otherwise. You should never accept defeat before the war begins. The best and first place to prepare for combat is in the mind.

In order to excel, always know that you can, even when the facts seem to contradict. You should then forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements that are in-store for you in the future.
