Dear friends, let me share with you some thoughts about how we have to think and act to achieve great things in life.
In my case, perfectionism, the ambition and the desire to learn as many things as possible, underpin what I am now. I can say that if you don’t work you will not be able to have achievements in your life.
Here are some rules, which I fulfill with holiness:
1. Never thank yourself for little achievements!
At work, besides the job descriptions, you should try to overcome your attributions. I am never content and I don’t thank myself for the routine work. But I always want to learn to do new things, to exceed my expectations and expectations of my bosses. Believe me, first and foremost you're doing it for yourself, not for someone else. You will thank yourself later.
If a colleague makes a job for you, do not be thankful for getting rid of the job you did not like. Try to find out how he did it, so that in the future you could do it yourself.
I remember with nostalgia my English teacher from 5-8 grades, I was her favorite student. All the classmates received 2-3 exercises for homework, and I was getting all the exercises that existed in the manual and more. She knew, I could do more.
2. Never say “I don’t know”.
Once I had a very demanding boss, who never accepted the answer “I don’t know” from the subordinates.
Every time she asked me to accomplish something, I had to answer that I was coming back with that report, even though I often did not even know what to do or where to start. I was researching, looking for other colleagues for help, concentrating, and thinking so much, until I was able to give her what she wanted.
At that time, I was horrified by that person, but now, looking back, I owe her much thanks, because it made me the person I became later.
3. Did you have a failure? Shake well and move on.
It is good to draw conclusions after each failure in life, to figure out where we were wrong. Do not spend too much time, though, while you are crying for yourself, life is waiting for you with many other opportunities. Remember what you have learnt and move on.
4. Trust in yourself.
Every step, we make in life, depends on our confidence in us. When you enter a room, keep your back straight and look interlocutor straight in the eyes, you will see that other things will come by itself.
5. Never be envious of other people`s success.
If you spend your time thinking what others have achieved and what you could not achieve, of course, you will certainly not succeed in life, because you have a frustrated mind. Get rid of negative thoughts, be optimistic and make real plans.
6. Never forget to smile.
It is said that people who smile are perceived by others more beautiful, they are more enjoyable and everyone is looking for their company. My colleagues love me because I greet them with a smile every time I meet them.
A smile from soul can warm up a room and many hearts.
