It doesn’t matter how smart, hard-working, or passionate you are, if people can’t connect with you, it will be difficult to get something done, even the most important assignments. The more likable you are, the more people will be attracted to you.

If you really want people to work with you, here are some strategies to get that done:

Be Humble.

“True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”- C.S. Lewis

Love people.

“Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.”- C.S. Lewis

Always show gratitude.

“When a person doesn’t have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude.”

Be happy.

“Happiness is an attitude of mind, born of the simple determination to be happy under all outward circumstances.”- J. Donald Walters, actor

Be courageous.

“Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.”- C.S.Lewis

Motivation: Do What You Love

If you allow yourself to pursue what you love, you will enjoy doing what you love. But if you resist it and pursue something that you don’t like, every single day at your work will be a miserable day. You will always complain about your job, about your co-workers, about your boss or manager, sometimes, you will start to blame yourself for your career choice.

Instead of hurting yourself emotionally, re-evaluate your career choice, re-evaluate where you are currently working. Ask yourself: “What do I really want to achieve?” Are you getting it in your current place of work? If not, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to keep complaining or do something about it?

Do not resist what you love to do. If you do, you are resisting personal and professional growth. You are resisting your progress in life. Pursue what you really love to do. Even if people are telling you to do something else, listen to your inner guidance. Don’t listen to them. Go ahead and do it. Once you have made your decision to do it, three things will happen:

They will criticize you.

They will congratulate you.

Finally, they will join you.

If you want to grow, you must think in a different way. The more you complain about where you are, the more you are hurting yourself. Do you want to remain unhappy for the rest of your life? If not, do something smart about it.

Real happiness comes from doing what you love. Most successful people are those who got into what they love to do. And they did it very well. As a result, they earn more than the rest of us.

If you do what you love, what you do will love you. Choose what you love, and stick to it, and you will be happy and successful.
