Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success. – Shiv Khera

As we head into March, hopefully your 2017 goals have been finalized and communicated, along with your development plan updated with specific growth areas identified.

SUCCESS magazine, March 2017, provides ten suggestions to assist with taking action against your plans.

Talk It Out – Practice responding to questions and obstacles; this will help build confidence

Think Again – Factor in “bumps in the road” and adapt accordingly

Persevere –  We all know things don’t always go as planned!

Push Back – Don’t accept “no” as the final answer; provide details as to why your plan should work.  Same token, don’t be afraid to say “no” when warranted

Be The Calm – Anticipate changing priorities; it may not be a crisis, but “it” may dictate that your plan needs to change

Check Your Ego – Being confident is a plus, being cocky is not

Be Good Enough – Being “good” may serve you better than being “perfect”

Take Risks – Prepare, but take steps forward. Sometimes we just need to “move along”

Practice Self-Care – Don’t forget the value you provide; some may try to erode it so remind yourself of your strengths

Push Yourself –  Expand your comfort zone; growth takes time and dedication
Have you identified your growth areas? What actions have you taken so far?
