Do you have the potential for becoming wildly successful? But, feel your success is elusive? You believe it’s not happening fast enough?
Just because you want your success now, doesn’t mean you’re ready for it.
Many potentially successful employees hurt their career opportunities when they:
- -Are promoted or advanced too quickly
- -Don’t have the resilience to learn from mistakes
- -Fail to take the initiative to hire the right coach and mentor
- -Lack awareness of the impact on others
- -Rely only on themselves and don’t build a strong network
- -Focus solely on the potential paycheck
“Yes, I want to have a bigger home, car, and bank account, but, I want to enjoy the process of getting there.” A Long-time Successful Business Owner
Pursuing a successful career is admirable. But, if you want to be happy and enjoy the process, there are three keys to success that you cannot overlook.
Three Timeless Keys for Faster Success
1.Hire the Right Mentor and Right Coach. Select a mentor from your company, profession and/or industry. The right mentor accelerates the learning process and guides you in building stronger relationships. Hire the right external coach. This person will confidentially talk you through upsets and build solutions for faster success.
2.Job Fit Assessments. Job fit is the number one reason people are successful (Harvard Business Review)! Sadly, many professionals pursue occupations they believe will make them the most money and make them happy. But, poor job fit doesn’t build a strong financial future or make you happy. Also, it can hurt your self-esteem and ability to bounce back after failure. Clarify job fit by using a scientifically validated job fit assessment. Review the results with your mentor and coach. Focusing on the right job and career path now will speed up your success.
3.Stand-up and Speak-up. Raise your hand and volunteer for new experiences. Learn how to share your ideas.
Use opportunities to learn and grow. Raise your hand and:
- -Be on a nonprofit board
- -Participate in a cross-department company project
- -Volunteer for a humanitarian interest group
And, develop your skills for success by:
- -Listening more than talk
- -Doing what you say you’ll do
- -Influencing new ideas
- -Appreciating others’ efforts
Remember, developing these three key success factors will help boost your success faster.
