Success in the workplace isn't something that just falls into your lap, as much as some of us wish it would. In order to be productive and reach new heights, each person needs to be accountable for their actions and proactive in their endeavors in order to reach the level of success desired.
Some people seem born to succeed and make their way up the ladder nearly effortlessly. But these folks are few and far between; the rest of us need to work at it with all we've got to make it to the places we want to be and to achieve our own personal definition of "the dream."
Whatever "success" may mean to you, this A-Z series offers tips, showcases behaviors, and explains why certain actions lead to success.
Starting with A, B, and C – Ambition, Boldness, and Commitment – achieving success is as easy as A, B, C… as long as you make the decision to pave the path to progress.
Desire and enthusiasm are a necessity in order to succeed. Without ambition, there won't be a drive to reach new advancements and take the initiative to go the extra mile.
As per Success, ambitious people, "see themselves capable of being the best. They see themselves with the capacity of being really good at what they do."
Fast Company notes, "Ambitious people are goal-oriented and are always striving towards the next accomplishment. Ambitious people break away from consistent 'groupthink', and expose themselves to new ways of thinking."
Determination and hard work to achieve success is what ambition is all about. As The Kahle Way puts it, "(Ambitious people are) willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done."
Having the courage to be strong in your decisions and a willingness to try new things and take chances are key components towards achievement. As per Fast Company, "Act with purpose, but allow room to explore, experiment and discover."
Success adds, "Successful people work to confront the fears that hold most people back. The ability to confront your fear is the mark of the superior person."
Don't waver in your decision-making. With firm background knowledge and past experience, go with your instincts and make moves that will propel you to where you want to be. Hesitation leads to stagnation.
As per Success, "The top people in every field are completely committed. They believe in themselves; they believe in their companies; they believe in their products and services; they believe in their customers."
Persistence and perseverance are a must if you are devoted to your work. According to HubSpot, "The ability to persist on a given path regardless of setbacks, unexpected events, bad news, and resistance -- to continue steadfastly or firmly in some state, purpose, or course of action in spite of conditions -- is a trait common to those who make it."
See your projects through to the end and don't throw in the towel when the going gets tough. Success doesn't always come quickly or easily, but those who stick through it will reap the well-earned rewards of their undertaking.
