Perception is the copilot to reality

You can change the way people think about you simply by changing the way you behave, the things you say, and the words you use when you are speaking to them.

Create a perception about yourself—build your own personal brand—by choosing three adjectives to describe yourself. Make sure you walk, talk, and behave consistently with those adjectives.

When choosing your adjectives, make sure they are consistent with what the company values, but also make sure your adjectives are consistent with who you are and who you want to be.

If you find you aren’t in the right job or industry, spend some time thinking about what you are good at and what you would like to do. Then spend the next twelve to twenty-four months learning what you can obtain from the company that you are working for and what you can leverage to use as a stepping stone to your next position or industry.
