What does it take to get to the top of the stairs? Unfortunately, there is no “one” book or step-by-step plan to take you there. Rather, as far as I can tell, there seems to be a different set of blue-prints for each of us. What I do know is this, (after my un-scientific research has shown), that there are certain characteristics and/or behaviors you need to possess to help get you to the top of the stairs.
Here I share my NineFrogs wisdom:
Smile: “Smile. It intimidates those who wish to destroy you!”
Self-Confidence: Knowing who you are and what you are made of, that, is what is going to get you where you want to be! Not everyone is going to believe in you (trust me, they won’t). That’s ok. As long as you BELIEVE in you!
Dress for Success: You dress for the job you want, not the one you have! There’s a reason they call it “Dress For Success”!
Attitude: As Winston Churchill said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG difference!”
Happiness: “Never tie your happiness to the tail of someone else’s kite!” – Beth Hoffman. That’s it!
Persistence: We’ve all heard that famous Rocky speech: “You, me, or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life.” And it’s true, life will knock you down, time and time again. The question is, how many times will you get up? Always, get, back, up!
Your Image: That’s right! Before you open your mouth, it’s what people see. Make sure it’s fabulous!
It’s How You Think: It’s always about how you think! Keep your thoughts POSITIVE!
Enthusiasm: I have been told on more than one occasion, that whenever I speak about any of the above subjects, my voice goes up a notch, LOL. True! That is because I am so passionate about them. You will never do anything great in this world if you aren’t enthusiastic about it. Because, it is that enthusiasm that will keep you going through the good times, and the bad!
Remember, your life, your dreams, your journey!
