The only thing that’s certain in today’s modern workplace is that you can’t rely on anyone or anything—you have to be accountable for your career and to take charge of your life.
The current state of our economy has transformed the workplace and how we manage our careers. There is no longer such a thing as a linear career path. A college degree doesn’t magically turn into a job and an MBA doesn’t mean you’ll automatically get a promotion. Even if you get a job, it’s not stable and you won’t be staying with the same employer for life. The rules of the workplace have changed and therefore you must not only understand them, but be able to navigate around them in order to be successful.
The importance of being skilful
It is of paramount importance to stress the skills you are lucky to possess comparing to other job seekers in the interview. Labor market being so tough, it’s a really hard task to persuade a potential employer you are able to be beneficial for their company.
It comes as no surprise that most of the companies search for employees different from thousands of other applicants, i.e. the ones having some unique skills.

Try to find out what features of character led this person to success, what you need to develop in your own character, what unpleasant features this person has got and what you need to get rid of. Being wealthy, like any other goal, demands strong acts of will and continual working on your personality.
