Find mentors to model who will guide you in your progress.
The mistakes of the world have all been made once before- why shouldn’t you
have the benefit of the experience of others?
Find someone who has both courage and consideration for others, someone who is therefore mature.
Your mentor must have only your best interests in mind and should be sufficiently senior to offer you good guidance on the subjects you seek assistance with.
Everyone needs to feel appreciated and even the busiest of executives will find time to assist a person who respects them and values their advice.
You can also build your will-power by restraint in your conduct with others.
Speak less ( use the 60/40 Rule = listen 60% of the time and speak a mere 40%, if that.
This will not only make you more popular but you will learn much wisdom as everyone
we meet, every day has something to teach us.
Also restrain the urge to gossip or to condemn someone who you feel has made a mistake.
Stop complaining and develop a cheerful, vital and strong personality.
You will greatly influence others.
Enhance your will-power; it is likely one of the best training programs you can invest in.
Here are some ideas to strengthen your will and become a stronger person:
1) Do not let your mind float like a piece of paper in the wind.
Work hard to keep it focused at all times.
When doing a task, think of nothing else.
When walking to work, count the steps that it takes to get all the way to the office.
This is not easy but your mind will soon understand that you hold its
reins and not vice versa.
Your mind must eventually become as still as a candle
flame in a corner where there is no draft.
