The best career advice for ambitious millennials
1. WHEN MAKING CONVERSATION, ONLY SPEAK WITH PURPOSE AND INTENTION. DON’T SPEAK JUST TO FILL AWKWARD SILENCE.
It’s okay to let the conversation fall silent. If you keep trying to use small talk to bridge the gap, people will get annoyed. It’s like when you write an essay and keep using filler words to try and make it longer. It’s noticeable. Only speak when you need to or when you can add something important to the conversation. People will respect you for it.
2. SHOW UP EVERY SINGLE MORNING LIKE YOU’RE MEANT TO BE THERE.
You got the job for a reason, so you need to show up, do the job right and exceed expectations.
3. NEVER TELL YOUR BOSS YOU CAN’T DO SOMETHING
Telling your boss no is a big mistake. Whatever they’re telling you to do, you can do it. Say you’ll figure it out and then do so. Attempting to figure it out and risking failure is better than doing nothing at all.
4. EMBRACE WHERE YOU ARE IN YOUR LIFE
Embrace where you are in your life right now. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, think about how you can better make use of what you have right now.
5. YOU ARE WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE
If you see yourself as someone who fails at everything, then that’s who you become. However, if you see yourself as a confident, career-driven business-woman who conquers life with fearlessness and strength, then you’ll become that. You are what you think so mind your thoughts.
6. ALWAYS THINK OF WAYS YOU CAN MAKE YOUR JOB BETTER (EVEN IF YOU HATE IT)
This involves changing your mindset. If you start to look at your situation and ask, “how can I make this better? What can I do to improve it?” you start to look at it in a whole new way and see opportunities you didn’t notice before. Think with an improvement mindset rather than a negative one.
7. TURN EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH INTO GOLD
Basically, go well above and beyond your job description. This is how you truly get ahead of the game and stand out among the crowd. I promise if you do this one tip, you will get farther in your career much faster.
8. MAKING MISTAKES MEANS YOU’RE HUMAN
It’s okay to make mistakes; they’re healthy and help you grow into a better you. Don’t punish yourself for making a mistake, think of it as another stepping stone towards success. Just try not to make the same mistakes more than once.
9. TURN YOUR “WANTS” INTO “WILLS”
Instead of saying “I want” or “I wish” something to happen, change it to “I will” make it happen. By setting your intention, your subconscious mind will naturally work towards making it come true.
10. THERE’S SOMETHING TO LEARN FROM EVERYONE.
Learning how to cope with all types of people will help you grow as a businesswoman. From the competent to the incompetent, from the nice to the harsh, they all make you stronger as a person.
