Success Is Paved With Hard Work

Do you want to be successful? Yeah? Well, you better be prepared to work hard. And we mean, REALLY work hard. Hard work is the key to success, so work diligently on any project you undertake. If you truly want to be successful, be prepared to give up your leisure time and work past 5 PM and on weekends.

Margaret Thatcher once said, “I do not know anyone who has gotten to the top without hard work. That is the recipe. It will not always get you to the top, but it will get you pretty near.”



Expect The Best, Prepare For The Worst

Career Tip:

Be prepared for the worst…losing your job. Regardless if you are currently employed, update your resume regularly (at least every 6 months) and document your achievements so you can capture all that you’ve done in your job. Also, be sure to maintain the great network of contacts you built through mediums like LinkedIn. Sharing relevant articles and information, or just dropping them a note to say “hi.” When the time comes to move on, you won’t need to remind them who you are again. Losing your job can happen unexpectedly. Being prepared helps you quickly find the next great opportunity.
