Opportunities are out there. Learn to recognize them; but it takes time to reach the summit.
Learning from others does not mean being patronized; it means you are open for progress.
Take criticism positively; try to find friends in your foes.
Be assertive rather than being passive or aggressive.
Time is precious. Make the best use of it before it diminishes.
Your career is a significant part of your life. Choose it wisely and deliberately.
There is a fine line between being persistent and being stubborn; make sure you don't cross the line.
You are not the only one to feel lack of recognition at work. You can enhance your visibility though.
All of us have problems in life. However, we can turn our problems into challenges and those challenges into opportunities.
Perseverance is one of the most under-rated attributes, yet it is the key ingredient for success.
