Everyone wants to climb to the top and be successful. No one ever dreamed of just being mediocre and in order to rise up, you have to form a close professional network of colleagues. To build a strong network you have to socialize but you must also monitor what you say and to whom.
Successful people are a class apart and set benchmarks for others to live up to and if you want to be one of them, here’s a list of what not to do.
1. They don’t flaunt about how much they make.
You do not need to go around discussing your paycheck with others because no good can really come of it. There can only be two outcomes – either you piss off your colleagues because you make more than them or you feel underappreciated and demotivated because they make more than you.
2. They don’t crib about Monday blues and how much they hate their job.
You might not really like your job, you might just be in it for the money or temporarily before you figure out what you really want to do with your life, but there is no need to go around telling other people that. Your boss is going to get wind of it sooner or later and no one appreciates that kind of negativity in the workplace.
