How To Gain Favorable Attention For Our ideas And Our Abilities!
First: the ability to communicate effectively
We will always be judged by what comes out of our mouthâ€¦â€¦our choice of words, the level and diversity of our vocabulary, and how well organized the thoughts we express are.
People do judge our intelligence and ability based on the words we use.
Second: our personal image
We never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
People make judgments about our status and importance, our seriousness about our job,even our ability based on our appearance, how we dress, what we say or how we present something.
Third: be well-informed.
In whatever work â€œspecialtyâ€ we find ourselves in as well as the one in which we want to develop our career, we should be an up-to-date, well-read, well-informed expert. This means having or getting all the related formal education and current information and knowledge we can.
Fourth: Personality and Attitude
People judged by others to have a good personality and attitude seem to be patient, active listenersâ€¦.encouraging and complimentary to othersâ€¦..generally cheerful and optimisticâ€¦ and curious, interested in learning and knowing about new things and doing them in better ways.
When should we put our best foot forward?
When should we present ourselves in a way most likely to gain favorable attention?
Every time. All the time.
We just never know when we are going to bump right into opportunity.
So we have to be ready for any opportunity and prepare ourselves as such.
