Losing a job right now is not an easy situation. When you listen to the current news, there is an increase rate of unemployment. That is why if you have a job right now, love it and take care of it because it is very hard to find another job again. It is like repeating all over again.
To have a good job stability, you have to make yourself indispensable and irreplaceable as possible. You have to prove to them that your loss will be a big impact on your company. It is very hard to lose a job that is why you should take care of your position and your profession as well.
I truly know that there is no certainty in every job but we have to make sure that we should have a job protection by following these ways:
- Willing to work beyond eight hour shift
If your office mates would stay in the office exactly 8 hours, you should make a way to be different. Show the company and your manager that you arrive in the office early and stayed up late because you want still to finish your work. In this way, you are trying to show them that you go beyond and you make a difference. You are not just working for the sake of working, but you are working because you also want the progress of the company and your professional growth as well.
- Think of innovative ideas
As years go by, company heads would also want their company to progress and they might like it much if the progress requires a lower amount of cash and that is your responsibility. Be resourceful enough to find ways for the latest updates you can offer for your work and to the company as well.
- Be very willing to take extra duties most especially duties that others really don’t like
We all know that everyone is busy and they have a work designated to them per position but as a good worker, you have to observe what others really hate about their work and make a good offer to make it for them. For example, your manager really hates to send business mails to other companies. As a help, you have to offer yourself in doing their work. Surely, they will really like you. You will look responsible, aggressive and assertive.
- Show your loyalty all the time
Even though you are working in that company for yours, you still have to show and convince them that you are still loyal. You are still the one who applied in their company before that is very willing to work for the good of the company. Assurance is what they want most especially to the tenured ones.
Lets face the fact that the employment industry is quite scary because it is uncertain but beyond the uncertainty, we still have the right to show them that we work hard and we are worth keeping.
The goals are the things we need to accomplish after a task or a series of tasks. We need to have these goals in order for us to set directions in our life. If we could notice that almost all successful men succeed because they have goals in life.
In this article, I will let you know how goals are very important. Even the simple things we do, we really have to set goals. The goals are the basis at the end if we are really satisfied with our lives or not. If we have no goals, we are just fine with whatever things that could happen and what the future would bring. That will not work that way and you will just fall in mediocrity if you allow that. Here are the things why goals are very important:
- Goals give you direction in life.
This is true, goals will give you directions in life. If you have no goals, you don’t know where to put yourself in. For example, if you set a goal that you will top in a class, you will have a direction in your studies that you will study hard, top the exams and excel in your classroom performance. But if you don’t have a goal as a student, it will turn out that you are going to school for the sake that you can graduate.
- You are sure that you make your own decision in life.
If you set goals, you really know to yourself that you are the one who set direction in your life. Not your family, friends or your loved ones. I know that we are also not satisfied if someone set directions for ourselves right? So, it is better to set goals for ourselves for us to follow our own directions in life. Not by somebody else.
- You are sure you get what you want from life.
If we set goals, we achieve the things we want and if we achieve the things we want, we are happy and contented about it. Setting our won goals would also give us the reason to be happy and to be satisfied what we have.
- Goals could give us self-fulfillment and self- satisfaction.
If we are happy and contented with what we have, we could already achieve self-fulfillment and satisfaction and this could help us grow as a better person.
- Goals could contribute to our self- worth.
If we work hard for our goals and we achieve it, it could contribute to our self- worth and self-worth cannot be bought in any stores, it is earned over time through our efforts and time. If we have self- worth we can grow holistically as an individual and we felt good about ourselves. If we felt good about ourselves, we can also share it with others and we can have a good relationship to other people as well.
I hope this article can help you a lot. Just always remember the saying that, “Whatever the mind conceived and perceived, he will really achieve”. This is the same through with our goals, even how hard our goals could be, if we put in our mind that we can achieve it, it is really not impossible
One secret to success is by not losing hope and by being motivated at all times. If we are motivated, we are happy, encouraged and contented of what we do. Whatever hard things are, if we are just motivated to work, it is just an easy job for us. There is no hard or difficult to ask if we love what we do and one secret is to be motivated.
In this article, I will enlighten you on how to still keep track with your lives even though how unmotivated you are. I know there would problems, conflicts and difficulties that would come along but, we should remember that we should not be affected about it. I hope this motivational technique would help you achieve success in your lives. Here are those:
- Visualize your goals.
Visualizing your goals would mean that you are also looking forward to reach it. Remember that, “Whatever your mind believe and conceive, you will achieve”. It is the same with your goals, if you keep on visualizing it that you could reach it, it will totally come true.
One tip that would help you a lot is by writing it down on a piece of paper and put it on a place where in you can see it everyday and you will be reminded. In this way, you may not forget it and you may be kept track every day.
- Write it down
They say, a goal without an action is just a wish. So, don’t let your goals just fall to be just a wish. Try to make it happen every day and it could help if you write it down. Studies would say that writing your goals down, could possibly make it really possible.
So, have a journal so that you could everyday update it and could keep track of you and your goals.
- Give yourself a treat
Just like children, yourself also needs a treat most especially when you achieved one of your goals. It doesn’t mean that you should achieve it in a snap. Having a progress means that you are improving and you are nearly there and that also means that you have done a great job. So, you deserve a treat or a reward.
The rewards could make you motivated as you go along and as you take action to your other goals.
- Be confident
This is the most key of all because you can just do it, not by anybody else. This is important because if you are confident, you are positive, and if you are positive, you could do certain actions that could lead you to success.
So, be confident, raise your head up high and say, “I can do it”. You may need also your families, friends and loved one advice, support and love so that it is easier for you to perform things because you know that there are someone behind your back and it is a very nice feeling.
So, always remember that achieving success is never possible if you are just by yourself. You also need others most especially your families.
We can never gauge success. Even though we are too rich, have a successful business, many cars, too much money in the bank, but if we are not happy, it can never considered as successful. Success means that even though how simple your life may be, but you love your work, happy with your family and fulfilled with yourself and life, then it is a success.
Success is never measured by money and fame. It is something that is within ourselves that we ourselves cannot even explain. In this article, you are given simple steps on how to reach a successful life.
Step number 1 : Ask yourself, “What is success means to you?”
This is very important because you will know what is your goal and where is your destination. If success means a big house, one car, happy family, great job, well it’s fine. You make sure you can reach it. Anyway, it doesn’t depend on how rich you are. It’s the happiness that you felt after reaching your goal.
Always remember that every person has a different definition of their own success because they have different needs. So, make your own and day after day, reach that success.
Step number 2: Write down!
Writing down your goals will it as an achievable one. It is also one thing that will remind you every day that you have goals to reach so it will not be forgotten. In this busy and hectic life, we may tend to forget some things so, writing, will keep us updated.
Always remember that goals that are not taken some actions are just wishes. So, don’t allow your goals to be just wishes. You deserve to be successful! So, write a plan and make sure you make a way to reach it in its possible way.
Step number 3: Learn to prioritize.
Prioritization is very important because it will rank your priorities according to its purpose and importance. If you think you badly need that goal in your present situation, make way to achieve it as soon as possible.
Step number 4: Make immediate action.
Procrastination is the culprit to every success. If you know you can do it today, don’t let it pass and don’t waste your time because time is very essential and you can never get it back once it was lost.
Step number 5: Success requires no secrets
There is no secret in achieving success nor short cuts in reaching success. It is the product of our hard work and sacrifice. Just learn to love what you do and never think that it is a burden for you. Put in mind also with the positive things and never stock negative thoughts on your mind.
One important thing in achieving success is by putting our feet still on the ground. Never be beautiful enough most especially to less fortunate. Learn to help and share your blessings because it will always go back to you.
And lastly, thank and give praise of all the blessing you receive. Imagine how lucky you are enough.
They say, if you want to be successful , do what makes you happy or interest you. That also goes the same with business. In business, we must know what will be right for us, for our personality, behavior and attitude. You should not go for business, just to make money. It will not work that way. At first, you will have money but in the long run, you will get tired and exhausted because you are just forcing yourself because you are not happy.
You have to work with all your heart in order for you to enjoy everything what you are doing and in no time, you will just realize that you already reached your goals. But then, at first it is not that easy, you have to sacrifice and stretch out more efforts because at the end, it will all worth it.
Here are the tips in choosing the right business:
- Know the things that you like
This is the first thing because as I have mentioned above, doing what you love, would not cause you any hassle and soon you will realize you are already successful.
It is important to know the things you like in order for you to know what you can do given the things you like in order for you to have choices in business. Anyway, business is a wide aspect.
- Focus on the things you don’t like
This might look negative but then, not all things that we don’t want must always take for granted. We just don’t know that those things are the best solutions in our business. We must always open for everything. If we don’t want something, we should make a way to like it because we must also bend backwards for our success.
- Know your strengths and weaknesses
Knowing your strengths and weaknesses could make you realize what needs to maintain and what needs to improve. In business, everything should be in balance in order to achieve our success. Strengths should be maintained very well, weaknesses should be improved.
If you are not good to a certain thing, practice makes perfect and drop the word, “I cannot do” because everything is so much possible if you are just willing to learn and improve.
- Consider other’s advices
If you want to be successful, learn to listen from other’s advice. You can never succeed alone. Sooner or later you will also need other’s ideas. So, start to hear from others because they have the more experienced.
- Take one day at a time. Don’t rush things and being successful doesn’t earn overnight, but through hard work, perseverance and patience. One must take one day at a time and the more you are sure with what you do, the clearer is success for you. Don’t rush things because you will reach success in the right time and right timing, If it is for you, it will really be for you.
“Confidence is the companion of success.”
Time is the thing you can’t control. No matter what you will do, seconds will be converted to minutes, minutes to hours, hours to days, days to months and months to years. This will always the format of time and we can never stop it, slow it down or even make it faster because it is constant. That is why we should not waste it because we can never get it back anymore.
The secret in getting our job’s done is not merely a time-management but by managing ourselves as well because no matter how much time given to you if you are not managing it very well, you will never accomplish anything.
Have you ever realized that almost all people have the same task but they have their way of getting it done? It’s all because they have different strategies, techniques and tricks on how they will manage their time. Others may do it through prioritization so that they may accomplish the great task first before the small tasks. Other people also consider the technique of a to-do list or a planer, because in this way they will not forget anything despite of their busy and hectic life. Some people also practice “one day at a time” technique because they believed that in this way, they could put quality in their work because they spent their time well in each task. One important and last technique is by avoiding procrastination because it is one of the factors that could ruin and waste everything. It could consume our time without doing and achieving anything. It is one of the things to be avoided because it is the culprit in every success.
Knowing the different techniques, strategies and tricks in time management are important because it will make you realize that there are different ways on how to accomplish every task and every person should know in which task they are productive at. Because if you know in which task you are effective and productive at, it will be very easy for you to accomplish tasks without difficulty.
You may wonder why we should know these things because one benefit of time management would always be happy. Why happiness? Because if we manage our time well, we could do our personal things and even our leisure activities. We could spend our time well and we could also use our free time resting therefore, we are not that tired enough to do our everyday duties.
One secret in practicing effective time management is to start or think the things that motivates you. For example, if you are working because of your family, think that you can give them a better life if you work. If you are a student, think that you will get a good grade after you’ve done your part. Always put in mind that all your efforts will pay off after all your efforts with the help of an effective time management.
Look Ma, Life’s Easy is a classic personal development book on par with Think and Grow Rich in its impact, depth and usefulness.
The book is part story and part personal development wisdom. The two intertwine perfectly.
Honestly, the book started a bit slow for me but it there was one point 40 minutes into reading that I had to immediately put the book down and go take care of some personal business that I had been putting off for too long. Man, did it feel good to be getting that important task done! As soon as I was finished, I went back to reading. Again, just a few minutes later, I came up with another important task and stopped reading to complete it. Back to the book… few more minutes of reading… another important task!
I would have gladly read the book in one sitting if it were not so damn motivating that I had to get up and get stuff done. Reading the book in itself was a productive activity because it forced me to look at my life and business differently and get the important things handled right away.
The premise of the book is that if you do the hard things in life today, your life will be much easier because you will achieve great things and you won’t be stuck with the same old problems. It sounds simple, and it is, but the author depicts clearly how this little rule applies to every area of life and how powerfully and immediately it can bring positive change to your life.
I will be reading this book over and over to glean it’s wisdom and improve my life even more.
I love Donald Trump because he always talks about being big, playing big, and thinking big. It seems like Trump’s favorite word is BIG. Donald trump is clearly playing big in life. He has big cars, big boats, big buildings, and a big attitude. He has also made a big difference in millions of peoples’ lives through his businesses, writings, books and teachings.
Now I’m not saying I think Trump is a great guy or that I’d like to be his best friend. What I’m saying is he’s clearly playing a much bigger game than most of us play. Most of us just worry about how to pay the rent – Trump worries about how to build thousands of apartments for people to lie in. There’s a big difference in the impact!
Most people play small. If you want real freedom, power, and joy in life you must learn to play a bigger game. Instead of worrying about how you are going to pay your bills, worry about how you can help others pay their bills. Instead of worrying about your financial security, help others achieve financial security.
While some people are worrying about how they can’t afford a car, others are buying the whole dealership!
I highly recommend reading books, watching videos, and listening to recordings of people who play big in life, like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Warren Buffett, Mother Theresa, Chris Gardner, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and many more.
Nothing will open your mind up to possibilities like learning from these great people who played big in life and have achieved incredible things – accomplishments that many others had said were impossible.
As Napoleon Hill wrote in Think and Grow Rich, “the real measure of intelligence is action.” So get to work!
Set your goals and commit yourself to playing big.
Recommended reading on goals:
Roger Bannister was the first man to ever run a mile in under 4 minutes. Well before he ever accomplished this feat, he openly proclaimed that he would do it. He set his mind on it. Roger Bannister was not the most fit or athletic person in the world. He simply knew that he wanted to run a mile in less than 4 minutes. And he did.
What’s incredible about Bannister’s accomplishment is that within nine months 36 other people ran a mile in under 4 minutes. In the last 5000 years of recorded history, no man had run a mile in under 4 minutes EVER. And then all of sudden nearly 40 people did jus that in less than a year.
That is the power of knowing what you want. Today, even some high school students have run a mile in under 4 minutes.
Before Bannister ran the mile in under 4 minutes many people said that a human being was incapable of running that fast. They said your heart would stop if you ran that fast. Maybe people had been saying that for thousands of years. Maybe that’s why no one ever ran a mile in under 4 minutes. But all it took was one man to say “I want it and I will do it.” That is the power of setting goals and committing to action.
The problem many of us face is we have notes on our desks that say things like, “I need to get diapers for Tommy after I pick up McDonald’s for dinner and go to the dry cleaner.”
We know how to take care of errands, but have we accomplished something great with our life?
Have we made a difference in the world?
Are we living up to our real potential?
Or are we just settling for an average life?
As Confucius said, “A man who shoots at nothing is sure to hit it.” Don’t let that be you.
All I’m saying is that I’d rather aim for trillionaire and settle for millionaire than aim for nothing and stay broke all my life. How about you?
History is full of examples of great people who decided what they wanted and made it happen.
Andrew Carnegie wrote on a small note and kept it in his desk over the years a simple message that shows how powerful writing down your intentions and goals really is.
Carnegie wrote, “I will spend the first half of my life making money, and the second half giving it all away.”
And that’s exactly what he did. Carnegie gave away over $350 million in his lifetime by the time he died in 1919. That was back when money was money. I mean, $350 million back then is equivalent to more than $10 billion today.
He was the one of the greatest philanthropists in the history of the world. Why? Because he wanted to be. That was his goal. That was his dream.
I’m not saying you should be a philanthropist. Personally, I want to give away hundreds of millions of dollars to worthy causes in my lifetime. But I’m not asking you to adopt MY goals and dreams – all I’m asking is that you find your own.
Be a good student, but don’t just be a follower. Learn everything you can but make your own decisions.
Don’t try to live someone else’s life – this is YOUR LIFE. Make it be what you want it to be. Screw what everyone else thinks. They can plan their own lives – but not yours. Your life is for you to live and you alone. And at the end of the day what you do with it is entirely up to you.
