1. Take Risks – Be open minded and get out of your comfort zone. This may seem like an overused phrase but it is extremely important because if you hold back, you will never know what you are capable of. It’s always better to try something once than never at all.
2. Make Connections – Get your name out there and network with people like your professors, family friends, etc. who could hook you up with great opportunities you never thought possible if you didn’t just ask around.
3. Trust- Have trust in your abilities and skills. Have the confidence in yourself and what you can offer and it will be apparent to others because they will be able to feed off your energy and positivity. If you feel insure and timid, it will make others feel that way about you to.
4. Put in the time – You must be motivated and willing to put in the work to be able to be proud and satisfied with the outcome. No one else is going to be making things happen for you; you must rise to the occasion and be dedicated to your goal and do whatever it takes to achieve it.
5. Follow through – Stay true to your word and responsibilities. This will put trust into whoever is mentoring/leading/managing you and reassures them that you will follow through with your tasks. Make a promise to yourself to keep up your work ethic because in the end you will be pleased with your success and results.
