Do a job you actually like!
This sounds obvious but doing something you love makes it all much easier. It makes all the difference.
Have a good work life balance
Make sure you take the time to rest and enjoy down time. Music plays a big part of my life, my Beats pill comes everywhere with me, just simple things like having a spa day at home listening to my tunes allows me to de-stress.
Utilise and support your network
In the words of Maya Angelou “to be able to get a friend you have to be a friend”. Your network is so important. So many of my friends have supported and helped me along my journey. I think it’s also very important to stress that you must also invest in your friendships and networks, nobody likes a taker.
If you don’t ask you don’t get
Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. It’s that simple.
Be nice but firm
Your gut never lets you down but be nice and pick your battles and sometimes, compromise.
Step out of your comfort zone
Take risks, try new things work with new people. You always learn something new.
Enjoy and celebrate the journey
The goalpost always keeps moving and sometimes you forget to enjoy the journey. It’s important to celebrate yourself.
