The Need to Success

It was last week that I got a call from a high school friend. Kinukuha raw akong guest speaker sa aming Alma Mater. (Deep sigh…) Di nga? Shit, bakit ako!  It’s a compliment though.

I know I have a job na stable din naman but I think my achievements are not enough to stand before those young graduates. I have to thank my friend for helping me decline the invitation. In time, kapag successful na ko. (I was an achiever during my high school days daw kasi).

I need to keep on practicing with these:

6 Skills You Need To Succeed

1- Speaking Skills

Whether you are hustling for a promotion when you bump into a CEO in an elevator or making an important speech at an international conference, the ability to speak with a wide variety of people is an absolute essential. Good eye contact, a varied vocabulary and the ability to tailor your language to suit your audience are all essential characteristics of an artful speaker.

2- Confidence In Decision Making

Nothing says mediocrity like indecision. A good leader is decisive and will always back himself up when making the correct decision. If you want to be considered leadership material, you have to possess these characteristics. If you are paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong, you will end up doing nothing, which is worse than trying something and failing.

3- Accountability

Another major part of being successful is accepting responsibility, both for successes and failures. If you want other people to respect you, acknowledge your errors rather than trying to blame someone else for your shortcomings.

4- A Positive Attitude

Being positive about work and life is also essential to success. While your colleagues may laugh at your endless cynicism and misanthropic tendencies, your boss will see you as someone whohates his job and who will never support the aims of the company. We should distinguish between the occasional bad day (although you should always try to minimize this and remain upbeat no matter how trying the circumstances) and being consistently pessimistic.

5- Self-Presentation

Learning how to present yourself to others is another major aspect of being successful. Good grooming and, in particular, smart attire will project an image of success to other people -- before you have even said a word.

6- Time Management Skills

It doesn’t matter how well you dress, how positive you are or how well-spoken you are if you cannot keep everything under control. Disorganization means that you will be forever playing catch-up with your work, rushing to meet deadlines and producing work below par. Learn to keep a detailed diary, listing deadlines and setting a schedule for your work, to ensure it is all done with time to spare.
