We spend more than 60% of our day at work or in activities that are related to work. Sometimes it feels like the entire day! And sometimes, in spite of our best efforts, we don’t move ahead at the pace we should.
Things that happen at work might end up making you feel low. Learning these five simple things will help you sail through smoothly.
1) Criticism helps you build:
Only after negative, there is positive. In life or at work, it is compulsory to get a feedback on what you are doing, which will make you question your moves. Criticism is healthy for you, learn to take it in the best spirit. There is something to learn from each negative remark. Also, remember to stand up for yourself. There is a difference between criticism and disrespectfulness.
2) Rejection has to be faced:
Rejection is something which is inevitable in life. It is like a part and parcel of life. Life is very unpredictable, this mantra should be accepted very sooner to deal better. If you are rejected by a company where you really wanted to work, take it as a blessing in disguise. Something better will be in store for you.
3) There is an art of conversation:
Conversation is a skill which has to be mastered. To master a skill you will have to practice it. Learn to bring in clarity in conversation so when you put your point forward, people understand it without any misinterpretation. Also, learn to be a good listener. Learning how to talk about anything can help you win the world.
4) Honesty is really the best policy:
Honesty is one of the most important areas of life which will create your image in front of the world. Honesty will shape you to become a bigger person and in a way which is essential. Most people are very good at spotting lies, and when you lie, you are actually bringing your credibility down. So don’t.
5) Put your heart into your work, don’t expect appreciation:
Your seniors will rush to criticise you but when you do something right, there will rarely be any appreciation. Get used to it. Don’t rely on others to tell you how good you are at your job. Do whatever you are doing with complete dedication. Your work is a reflection of yourself.
We hope these tips help you! All the best!
