9 Reasons Why You Don’t Succeed At Work
There are endless types of characters you can encounter in the workplace. We play varied roles in our workplaces but you can always find those that share the same skill sets and characters that determine whether they will succeed or fail. Avoid becoming one of those who cause harm in their career by learning about the profiles of the people who don't succeed at work.
1. Being a coward can make you resort to unreasonable behavior because of fear. When mistakes are committed, you are quick to blame others instead of owning up to your mistakes. You will also feel afraid to stand up for what is right.
2. If you are a highly negative person, you tend to impose negativity to every person you encounter and you always fail to see the light in every situation. Your points of view always involve fear and worries.
3. Arrogance is an indication not of confidence but of insecurities. If you are arrogant, you have the tendency to show poor performance and can be a cause of certain problems in the workplace.
4. Being a group thinker who always settles to what everyone believes will not get you anywhere. You don't stand up for what you think is right and is excellent because that's not what everybody else thinks.
5. If you feel that your failures or your lack of accomplishments is because there's a lack of opportunities given, then there's a problem with your attitude. Successful people have achieved what they have achieved through their hard work.
6. Not being able to control your emotions will only do more harm in your career because your decision making skills will be overpowered by your emotions, and your judgment will be clouded. You will also have the tendency to show poor performance because of feeling too emotional.
7. Don't play the victim because you just push away responsibilities with an excuse that you are in "time of need" and just miss out on the opportunities to learn and grow.
8. You should be able to stand up for yourself, learn when to say yes and learn when to say no. Being gullible will not help you earn the respect of your colleagues and even your boss.
9. People who apologizes more often are those who lack confidence. You don't have to apologize for an idea you aren't so sure about. Have the confidence to share it with the right tone of voice and body language.
