Most of us have a boss or a mentor,-check} I do.

someone you are accountable to or look up to for inspiration. Check

Do you often wish to know what was really going on inside his or her head in other to be able to achieve what they have
achieved? Me too.

Sadly, the technology for that doesn't yet exist
However, after talking to and working with a few people I look up to for inspiration , I have discovered 7 commonalities.

 Follow this advice

1. BE CONSISTENT : Success doesn’t happen overnight, it's a process and you must be consistent to get to the end of the process. I am not naturally the most consistent person as a matter of fact for me it's a daily struggle. but I have learnt that consistency produces reward. So I try to Keep the fire burning!.

2. KEEP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE : success demands a positive attitude, being difficult, constantly complaining, nay-saying, gossiping, and generally being a grumpy person is not going to be tolerated for long, regardless of the skills you have.

3 : HARD WORK PAYS: all the hard work, all the sleepless nights, all the sacrifices,struggles, downfalls it all pays off. Never give up.

4.LEARN TO PROFFER SOLUTION : SIMPLY identifying a problem without offering any kind of assistance or solution, is not good enough. You need to always identity a problem with a view to proffering a solution. If you don't have the expertise to address the problem, talk to someone who does.

5. EXPECT CRITICISM : whoever you are and whatever it is you do not everyone is going to agree with you, don't take it personal.
Constructive criticism is how we all learn to grow in our roles, and advance in our careers. Brush it off, and learn from it. People should be able to critique your work and ideas without you feeling attacked or hurt.

6.THINK BEYOND THE NORM : learn to be creative with life. Think outside the box, life doesn't always have to follow a convenient/conventional pattern.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a dissenting opinion, Someone who says yes to every single thing is not only seen as irritating, but also lazy. It takes work, and bravery, to speak up about an idea that's different. But it also shows you're thinking.

  1. Love this! I was trying to choose one of these things as what I thought the "most important" was, but honestly I think you hit the nail on the head with them all. I always try to keep a positive attitude because I think that begins the trend in which all the others fall into place!

  2. Luckily I work from home and I am my own boss. When I do end up getting back into the work field this will be very helpful though.

  3. What a great list of things to keep in mind as an employee! Accepting criticism is something that so many people need to learn to do.

  4. These are such great tips, I feel like they need to teach this to college students! It's amazing how many up and comers don't respect their leadership.

  5. This is so true. I been in management most of my adult life and these things would make work relationships great. I am sharing with a few recent grads.

  6. I love this! Sometimes it is easy to forget some if these things. Some thing to teach the kids. I think number 7 is my fave for sure.

  7. This is so true it made me wanna cry T^T I'm not a "real" boss yet I'm the "boss" of some Facebook fanpages for my idol and it sometimes drive me crazy how my "employees" react to my words! I'm considering whether to show them this article haha. Thanks anyway!

  8. sometimes I am afraid to speak up to my boss when I disagree with things so I am going to have to do that more.
