1. NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, KEEP A POSITIVE
ATTITUDE.
It’s easier said than done, but there are few good things in
this world that come for free. No matter how bad is your
rapport with the reporting manager, or how badly you
missed the deadlines, or how bad you were criticized by
your boss, try and maintain a positive attitude. To quote
Norman Vincent Peale, the famous author of the bestseller,
The Power of Positive Thinking, “The trouble with most of us
is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by
criticism.”
Learn to take the criticism in your stride, and instead of
getting bogged down by failures, rise above them. Positive
thinking isn’t just any miracle mantra, but it is the way of
life. With a positive attitude one can visualize the results he
or she wants to achieve. The power of positive thinking is
such that, you will find yourself walking tall, speaking with
more impact and influencing a far greater audience than
your peers.

2. LEARN TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WORK/LIFE
BALANCE.
There must have been plenty of occasions in the past year
when you missed important life events in favor of more
work. Also, there must be times when instead of enjoying
an hour of television with your family you were spending
hours in front of your laptop, frantically trying not to miss
the deadline.
However, the truth is that maintaining a healthy work/life
balance is essential both for your general motivation level
as well as overall well being. Looking forward to doing
something after work will also see you through the
moments of drudgery when your motivation levels are not
that high.

3. ENJOY YOUR SUCCESS.
As important it is to introspect and learn from the failures,
similarly it is essential that you enjoy the success that you
have achieved after toiling hard, harder than the tough
competition. A small celebration befitting the occasion
would not cause any harm. The celebration, the accolades
and praise should serve as a reminder of how you have to
work harder and smarter the next time to achieve an even
tougher goal. The strategy of rewarding yourself will give
you something to look forward to, and infuse an extra drive
to get there.

4. CHANGE YOUR SLEEPING HABITS.
Do you know sleeping habits have a great role to play in
deciding the productivity and abilities of any individual? If
you are a party animal or a person who habitually misses
his regular sleeping hours chances are that you feel dizzy
and worn out in the office, stressing your body as well as
the employer. In 2015, make it a point to improve your
sleeping habits.

5. ENHANCE YOUR SKILL SET.
The hiring trends of the first quarter of 2015 paint a
positive picture of recruitment activities globally. However,
competition would also be tougher than previous year and
your chances of getting selected will rest heavily on the
skills that you have in addition to the educational
qualifications. Therefore, this year is perfect to enhance
your skill set by either joining some training or short term
course. Besides, a more skilled person is automatically
more confident, and hence more motivated than his peers.
