Change Your Approach

Suppose your project doesn't go as planned the first time around. Don't give up and walk away. If you hit a roadblock, think through the problem. Could you change your approach? Is the timing off? Take another shot at it and try something different. Sometimes it takes many tries to get it right. The key is to learn from each attempt.

We all know that getting ahead in your career requires many things: industry knowledge and expertise, experience, a proven track record, being liked by your colleagues and customers, having a good reputation and more. But one of the most common things holding back many people from reaching the success they deserve is the fear of failure.

In this slideshow, Whitmore has highlighted six tips to help you on your journey.
