What’s the difference between a robust employee in the workplace and the one who “checks out” of work even when he is present? They could be working under the same boss, having the same credentials, or even providing the same quality of work (that is when they are both motivated).

Man has two natures. The first is to advance, while the second is to pull back in fear. Whichever we choose to cultivate determines who we are and ultimately, who we become.

Luckily, with the right kind of training, every individual could be a success. Be mindful that it is not in your best interest to wait and expect others to assist you on the road there.

Rather, achievement and career advancement is the culmination of gaining self­-will, setting firm resolutions and making a commitment to conquer your weakness and bad habits. (more…)

So you’re few months away from graduation and you’re still deciding on what you actually want to do. With thousands of options and expectations laid in front of you, it’s likely that you might take the wrong decision(s) while choosing the right career path.
