Some people think that they can coast for the rest of their career and not attempt to lead at anything. Then you have other people who just don’t want to put in the time, but complain about their situation. If you put in the work and extra hours, you can become outstanding in your job and career no matter what your educational background is. Remember that it is the 41st hour is where the herd separates.
Take Some Online Courses:
You can take an online course for just about anything these days. You can get formal education online (a degree) or you can take
specialized online courses that immerse you in a particular subject for a period of time.
Regardless of your educational background, by attending these kinds of programs you
can take your career and success to the next level.
Take a Short-term Specialty Program:
These are not degrees. They are
certifications and in some cases certificates
in certain fields. The medical field, the computer field, and other areas like skilled
trades, such as welding and culinary have short quick programs that can teach you
exactly what you need to know to get a job.
If you want to go from being just an employee with a company to a super star employee, create something that makes the
company more money. This will get you going on the fast track within your company. If you’re just finding your way in life and you can invent something that the
market needs, then you know what the results of that can be… Watch SharkTank or QVC.
Be a leader:
No matter what, every company needs leaders that are capable of leading others to get the desired results that the company
needs. It isn’t a popularity contest to be a leader though, its hard work, long hours, and
hard decisions. That is why good leadership is hard to find. If you can lead others you will always have a place within a company,
with or without a college degree.
Learn how to Negotiate:
This is a valuable skill for anyone, no matter what. Sometimes you have to negotiate your salary with a potential employer, or
negotiate a contract on a product you have developed. In everyday life, it seems as if everything we do really comes down to
helping other people see that it’s a win-win situation. Negotiators are able to show others a win-win situation.
