(From the article): We’re all capable of improving, regardless of what natural abilities we were born with or without. It’s important then to acknowledge our successes or failures and remind ourselves that they are a direct result of our own effort or lack thereof, not of factors outside our control.

 

It’s the difference between having a “fixed mindset” or a “growth mindset”. A “fixed mindset” assumes that our abilities can’t be changed in any meaningful way, and success or failure is the reinforcement of the traits we were “born” with. When we have a “growth mindset,” on the other hand, we see obstacles and challenges as opportunities for growth beyond our existing abilities.

 

These two mindsets spur a great deal of our behavior so it’s essential to recognize if you tend toward a fixed mindset and try to shift your thinking toward a growth mindset.

These tips can underpin your other efforts.

You are your brand so be your amazing self

You are your brand so be your amazing self | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

Personal branding is based on the idea that the internet has provided everyone with the potential to reach any other person with no restrictions on geography and time, two of the biggest barriers in previous time frames. In those not so long ago times, it would take a great amount of time to become familiar enough with another person to get to the point of being able to call them friend. Most people never ventured more than 10 miles radius from their home so the only people they knew were the people around them. Technology has changed all that and now your circle has stretched around the world

(From the article): Trustworthy people express gratitude for the people who help them. They are confident in their abilities, but they also accept the fact that they would be nothing without the support of those who made their success possible.

John Michel's curator insight, May 7, 2015 7:30 AM

Trustworthy people aim to establish meaningful relationships with their friends, clients, and co-workers. If you can’t demonstrate compassion for others, then why should anyone care about about you?

Should you focus on time management or productivity? | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

The way people sometimes look at time management and productivity, you might think that you must sacrifice one for the other in order to get anything done.

How to build your reputation.

donhornsby's curator insight, August 31, 2015 9:19 AM

(From the article): Finally, the best antidote if you’re lacking an expert reputation now is to start creating one ASAP. Creating original contentis the single most effective way to develop an expert reputation. Though the best channel will vary (photographers and chefs should double down on Instagram, while it’s less helpful for attorneys and insurance brokers), blogging is a good betfor most professionals. In just an hour or two a week, you can begin to demonstrate how you think about the issues facing your field and sharing your unique point of view. Your content creation sparks a virtuous circle: because reporters looking for comment almost always start their articles with an online search, if your name keeps coming up as someone writing about the issues, they’re likely to contact you, reinforcing your expert reputation with third-party validation.

 

If you’re not yet considered an expert, it’s harder to get your ideas noticed — but not impossible. With these strategies, you can begin to overcome others’ resistance and make sure your voice is heard.

Trust God! In times past grandma said " Don't let your right hand know what your left hand is doing" then later on wise older mother said " its nothing but to fail if you don't try" then another said " why sell your dreams to the devil when he ain't got enough money to by them but will take your dreams live them for you and invite you to an it's your dream not party"  there was a saying when a person was angry they would say " Ina tell you a piece. of my mind " then the older mothers would say " you better go some where an sot down and hush yo mouth because you ain't got a piece to spare" it's funny how things are  said but only those who know what the conversation was about and who with would truly understand what's being said. Sometimes it's not what's said that makes the difference because it is being done instead! God style!
