How to maximize your potential and become a star at work?

When I say potential, I mean the underutilized resources that you naturally possess. Along the way to fulfilling our dreams, we sometimes compromise our abilities for the sake of pleasing our bosses or securing an opportunity. We rely on the unsustainable tried-and-tested methods that others before us have done, leading us to neglect our own abilities in the first place. It is up to you to harness your own potential in order to survive at your workplace and surprise yourself as well as those at work with what you can accomplish with your own hands.

ALL GOOD THINGS MUST…

HAVE A PLAN

Like the beginning of each year, take stock of your life and clear anything that seems to be clogging up your schedule. Only then can you make time and space for self-improvement and set honest learning goals which should tie in with your priorities in life, so make time for serious self- reflection every week. Make a list of things you could be good at, and then start honing them. Under-promise in the meantime; it’ll make you seem more capable when you do well on those promises early and buys you more time as well.

INVEST IN

YOURSELF

To be like a star, you have to look and feel the part. While you are creating that winning routine, include some physical improvement. You’ll need the energy everyday to become the best you can be, so work that stamina and commit to getting fit. It is said athletes have more discipline and focus than regular people, and discipline and focus are what helps you to finish every project to completion. With every successful completion, your standing at work will increase too. Dress for excellence and conduct yourself respectfully. Soon, others will recognize the excellence in you.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU

SAY YOU ARE

This cliché could not be truer in helping you reach your potential. Start by making the decision to be indispensable at work. Tell yourself you’ll be so good at what you do that you’ll be the first person to come to for advice. Maximizing your potential means becoming the best you can be, so don’t settle for anything less. You can start by including in your plan to hone your best 3 talents first over the year. You’ll be so good that they can’t function without you, and you’ll become a star at work.
