Successful people are a class apart and set benchmarks for others to live up to, and if you want to be one of them, here’s a list of what not to do;
They don’t WHINE about Monday blues and how much they hate their job
You might not really like your job, you might just be in it for the money or temporarily before you figure out what you really want to do with your life, but there is no need to go around telling other people that. Sooner or later, your boss is going to find that out, and then you know what will happen next!
They don’t vocalize their thoughts when they think someone is incompetent
Is someone not doing their job right? That is not your problem, unless its directly affecting your work. If you are not in a position to help them out then there is no need to go around bad mouthing them because you really don’t want to be ‘that’ person.
They don’t talk about applying for new positions elsewhere
You have to stick around until you get a new job so why bother telling anyone that you are looking around? This will only cause resentment among your colleagues because they will think you don’t even want to be there so what’s the point?!
They don’t surf their private social media pages while at work
Trust me, this is the last thing you want for your boss to walk in while your Facebook chatting with your friends about your plans tonight, or your ‘personal chat’ with your boyfriend/girlfriend.
They doN’t talk about their personal lives at work
Whether you use Tinder, or you have a loyal girlfriend, nobody cares about your personal life. This kind of conversation has no place during your work hours. What you should be doing is focusing on getting your job done rather than discussing your private life.
They don’t flaunt about how much they make
You really do not need to go around discussing your pay-check with others, because no good can really come out of it. There can only be two outcomes – either you piss off your colleagues because you make more than them or you feel un-appreciated and demotivated because they make more than you.
They don’t discuss their boss and talk negatively about them
Your boss is going to hear all about it through the office ‘BBC news reporter’ and you will be lucky not to get fired. And from there on its going to go all downhill for you, so its best to shut your mouth, keep your head down and whine about it to a few close friends after work. You do need to maintain your sanity after all!
