Always bear in mindthat your own resolution to succeedis more important than any other one thing."- Abraham LincolnThat Abe was a smart man. Why? What did he mean by that?
Well, what he means is that if you have your mind set on success and that is your foremost thought, you're likely to overcome any obstacles that come across our path. If you plan to have a great day, you're more likely to have a great day. So how can administrative assistants have the resolution needed to be successful at their jobs?
1. Visulalize. They say that visualizing every possible outcome - the good and the not so good - is a great way to plan ahead. If you know how you are going to handle certain situations you won't be so worried about it when it happens. You'll be prepared and you'll be able to handle it more efficiently. If you know the possibilities, you can think of different ways of dealing with them.
2. Have a good attitude. Come to work with a smile on your face thinking about all the good things that can happen that day. Believe that you will be quick and efficient and that work will get done. Believe that people will treat you well and you will treat them well in return. As a result, people will pick up on your positive vibes.
3. Plan for success. If you plan for success it is more likely to come your way.
They say that attitude is everything and "they" are right (funny how we are never sure who "they is!). Those who start the day with a postive attitude seem to be...more. They get more done, they smile more, people are nice to them more often.
So, wake up tomorrow, tell yourself what a great day you are going to have, and make a resolution to succeed!
