Whether it’s a new job, a new week, or just a new day, you always want to negotiate success. Taking every day as it comes is nice, but taking every day as your own is way better.
4 Ways to Negotiate Success- Every Day, Every Way
1. Set yourself up with short-term wins
OK, you want to achieve and achieve big. But, don’t lose sight of the road to get there. Think of the road ahead as a series of short-term goals, one after another. It is important to have a high level view of what you want to accomplish, but that view is overwhelming when you try tackling endless day to day objectives. Develop a plan of action with achievable milestones to help you build momentum with positive affirmation along the way. Road blocks are easier to troubleshoot after giving yourself credit for the work you’ve done to get there.
2. Don’t settle for the short-term, think big and act big
Use a series of short-term goals as building blocks to achieving something larger than life. This is what separates executives from managers and vision makers from the rat race. Always push forward and ask what’s next. Dare to disturb the universe.
3. Ask for help when you need it
Check your ego at the door. Sure, our confidence and our egos fuel our ambition, but don’t let your pride get the best of you. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
4. Trust yourself
Always remember, you can’t rely on anyone if you can’t rely on yourself.
