Formula for success: Work, work, work

Whether you’re just entering the workforce or have been entrenched for many years or are creating your own business, the world of work is an intrinsic part of all of our lives. Whatever your position in relation to the world of work, one thing is clear — your attitude towards work and/so how you approach it makes all the difference in how well you succeed.

You know the saying there are no small parts, only small actors? It’s so in the work world. There are no small positions, only small minds.

Regardless your position in the work world, there is always opportunity to improve your lot. So if you foster an attitude that you are not limited to your position, and approach each work day with an open mind and pay attention, you will discover ways that you can go from a sales clerk to store manager in just a few months.

Now if you’re thinking this sounds a bit like those commercials on TV that are suggesting you can go from a size 22 to a size 10 in a few months with their weight loss product and you think to yourself it sounds too good to be true, perhaps you didn’t pay attention to the part, “combined with exercise and a sensible diet”. Which is to say, that whether it’s losing weight or achieving success in the work world, you will have to pay attention to everything around you, what you are doing and make a concerted effort to integrate yourself. In other words — you will have to work at it.

If you’ve been enticed by “come ons”, it’s understandable. Everyone one would like to be able to buy a new house or earn lots of money. Remember THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS OVER NIGHT SUCCESS. The only way to achieve success is by planning your work and working your plan. And that’s much easier said than done.

Don’t believe the hype that it’s “easy”, to achieve financial independence and monetary success via the Internet. It’s not. In fact, it may be even more difficult to make a successful go of it on the Internet as opposed to in the “real”, world.

And if you do achieve a state where you believe you know what will work for you — be prepared to work, work, work.

To achieve success from/with/in any position, the first steps you can take are to be at work every day, on time and to agree, without question, to do whatever is asked of you.

Of course, you shouldn’t do anything unethical.
