Eyeing that elusive promotion?
You are not alone. This is why the competition is getting tougher and tougher because everyone wants to be promoted. Who doesn’t, right?
If you haven’t been promoted yet, perhaps there are things you haven’t done as yet. To help you out, here are the easiest tips on how to get ahead and be promoted:
Drop the attitude
No one is ever entitled to get promoted. It is something everyone has to work hard for and deserve. If you feel entitled, change your attitude and approach. We know you deserve it, but it is more than that. It is what you do to get there and what your boss sees in your performance and character.
Determine your goal
What do you want to happen and what do you want to achieve? Determine your goal, stay focused and don’t give up. When you know what you want and what you want to happen soon or in the future, your path will be lined up even when it is not necessarily paved.
Seek it out
If you want it, ask for it. Yes, we know you have to work hard for it, but it does not hurt to ask for it. You may not get it right away, but it means you have let your intentions known, which is a good start in the right direction. Remember not to let up and keep focusing on what you want to achieve until a promotion happens. We tell you, it will happen.
Go the extra mile. As they say, it is not crowded there. Work hard, be great in what you do. Be positive and think as if you already have it. One day you will wake up it has already happened, and you have gotten it.
Getting promoted is more than about the job you do and how you do it. It is also about what’s inside you, what you want to happen, your goals, your loyalty, and your integrity.
