1) Use Social Media Effectively!
Instead of using your Facebook,Linked-In and Twitter to stalk ‘friends’ use social media as an effective tool to become aware of what is going on in the area of your passion. Follow the industries you are most interested in to find out what is going on and to enhance your skills and knowledge of that particular sector.
2) Know What Is Going On Around You!
There is nothing as disappointing as a woman who has no clue what is going on in the world around her! This does not mean that you have to become a specialist in global affairs but simply be aware and 10 minutes everyday to catch-up on the news! If you don’t have time just glance through the newspapers, follow the news online or listen to the radio as you go about your business. You will find that it will become increasingly easy with time and you will feel more comfortable engaging in topical issues with colleagues and mentors.
3) Keep Good Company!
We hear about the importance of good company all too often but we never really take it to heart. Who we surround ourselves with plays a deterministic role in how far we progress in life. It is up to us to make sure that the company we keep mostly consists of people that are as motivated as we are or much more motivated. This might sound quite harsh but the more people you have in your life pulling you back, the more you will move back. Effectively purposeful relationships matter. Always aim to be surrounded by people who can pour into your life and people whose lives you can pour into. You wont regret it!
4) Always Be of Good Cheer! If you learn to be able to stay positive, cheerful and wear a smile you will find that more good things come your way! While life has its bumps, you are guaranteed to always come out better if you keep a positive attitude. Positivity allows you to bear what you previously thought you could not. Positivity gives you perspective..
Remember the storms of life will come but so will the good times and if you stay joyful even in the tough times people will remember you for it!
