Certain people seem to be successful with everything they do. They always seem to land the promotion. Things always fall into place for them outside of work.
Is this just luck or a coincidence? Nope! These people don’t wait for things to happen, they make their own luck. So what can you do to ensure you’re successful? You can start by following these five tips:
Have a positive attitude–always!
Your attitude can be a powerful self-fulfilling prophecy. If you have a negative attitude, 9 times out of 10 you will fail. But, if you bring a positive attitude and display confidence, strength, and determination, you WILL be successful.
The best way to ensure success is to stay one step ahead. Take time to read medical journals. Review new research and ask questions. Know what’s happening now and what the experts predict will happen in the future. Look for the next big medical advancements and start to familiarize and train yourself in these areas. Knowledge is power.
Create a personal elevator pitch.
First impressions mean a lot. If you only had 30 seconds to convince someone you were a hard-worker and a leader, what would you say and do? Plan this ahead of time; you never know when it will be needed.
Learn to network.
Unfortunately sometimes it’s not what you know, but who you know (at least to begin with). Learn to network. You can even network within your own facility. Invite co-workers to lunch. Take the time to say hello to physicians and other practitioners. And actively seek out opportunities to network outside of work by joining organizations, groups, etc. You start by seeking out your local associations to learn of upcoming events.
Be open to new opportunities.
Read journals and publications. Listen to people in your network. When a new opportunity presents itself, don’t sit back and wait. Take the initiative to inquire more–and don’t be shy!
