The ONLY secret weapon you’ll need to get promoted

 

Of course you’re motivated. And that’s a great thing for your journey to the corner office. But, as you probably know, most people’s journeys don’t end up as planned. What’s the reason?

 

It’s actually quite simple.  It’s the difference between your motivation and the amount of your perseverance. Motivation gets you started, but it’s the amount of perseverance that does the hard part. And that’s your secret weapon.

 

The amount of perseverance you have determines how well you’ll deal with all of the “bumps in the road” along the way. It will pull you out of the mud when you doubt your abilities or question why you ever decided to take on this challenge. It will keep you going when you’re tired and just want a “rest stop.” And it will keep you on track, not allowing you to change course in order to make the journey easier. In short, the right amount of perseverance will make sure that you actually complete your journey - never giving up.

 

And keep this in mind - it’s no harder to deal with setbacks along the way than it is to deal with giving up on your dreams.

 

Below are six pairs of statements. Check the statement that best describes your attitude.

 

1.

a.      I know that I’ll achieve my dream job one day.

b.      I will definitely achieve my dream job one day.

 

2.

a.      The costs of achieving a goal should be considered.

b.      The end always justifies the means.

 

3.

a.      When things get tough, I regroup and start anew if required.

b.      I always tough things out.

 

4.

a.      Some prices are too heavy to pay.

b.      Success is priceless.

 

5.

a.      If the high road is closed, I’ll re-think my journey.

b.      If the high road is closed, I’ll take the low road.

 

6.

a.      I always proceed with caution.

b.      Nothing can stop me.

 

Now tally your a answers and b answers separately. The more b answers there are, the more perseverance you have.

 

If you’ve got a good amount of perseverance, now is the time to harness it and start actively managing your career. But if you feel as if you might be lacking in the perseverance department, this is the time to start building it up.

 

 

And always remember:

 

Great managers are made. Not born.
