What makes you successful in your career? What are some of the characteristics you need to find and develop within yourself?
It could be said that a successful person wakes up, having already planned their day. Their goals are very focused, big, yet obtainable and are aligned to their strengths. Of course depending on their personality & style these goals can vary with each person.
It is also true that someone successful in their career, views their job descriptions as just the beginning of what they can do with their job. After they've completed their mandatory tasks, they will always ask to take on more projects that challenge them. They are even willing to take on the tedious work that no one else wants to do in order to be a team player.
They take accountability for themselves and their actions. They aren't relying on other people in order to get the job done. Instead, they are looking inward and are trying to find the solutions, while leveraging their current resources. If they make a mistake, they own up to it and immediately think of ways that they can improve next time, not making the same mistake twice.
So what are the top characteristics for success that you can cultivate in yourself?
I suggest writing down your top 10 characteristics. If you aren't sure what your strengths are, ask three people that you know and trust what they recognize to be your best characteristics. This will help you get clarity on your strengths and where you might want to put a little more effort. The right combination of characteristics can greatly assist you on the road to success.
