Act Your Way to Success!

bernerChances are good that your “Dream Job” is not the one you head to each day. That shouldn’t stop you from acting like it is. By now we know the power of a positive attitude on career achievement.

Optimism has been shown to be a better predictor of success than education, I.Q. and most other factors. Positive people are healthier, have better relationships, make more money and advance further and faster in their careers. So you can mope, coast and whine about not being in your dream job or you can change your attitude and attack it as if you are.

Dress the way you would in the next step in your career. Act today in the way you will be expected to once you get the promotion you seek. Learn and practice skills that are a few steps above your grade level.

Take a few risks. Speak up. Get noticed. Show your interest in bigger challenges, give credit, be accountable. For goodness sake be happy you have the job you have and that you have the power to get the one you really want.  Act as if you are where you want to be.

Act your way to success.

Take great care of yourself, and your career.
