Success is a Decision

Your environment may be hindering your success. But if you really want to change your life, you must decide and commit yourself to finding ways to overcome your circumstances.

Make a plan. Start with the little things. Do what you can with your current resources and take bigger steps as you accomplish each goal. Don’t forget to celebrate each victory to motivate you to go forward.

Would you rather get one marshmallow now or wait for a bit and get 2 marshmallows later?

Dress for Success

Have you heard of the saying that you should dress for the job that you want, not the job that you have?

While what you wear does not define your value as a person, it is a fact that what you wear influences how others see you.

Your clothing makes a strong visual statement on your confidence level and how you see yourself. It is also a way to show respect not only to the situation but also to the people whom you are going to meet and talk to. Career counsellors know this well that is why they advise people to always look good and look professional especially on a job interview.
