Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and Sara Blakely all have one major thing in common, which is of course their incredible success. Not everyone can aspire to achieve what they have done in their careers, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t all learn lessons from what they have to say.
A new guide from Resume.io has been published with top career lessons from some of the world’s most famous founders to offer some guidance for how you could advance your own career. For example, Mary Kay Ash of Mary Kay Cosmetics says: “Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve!”
Whether you’re starting your own business, going for promotion or tackling a difficult new project, setting yourself limits on what you achieve will be self-defeating, so it’s better instead to boost your self-belief. Why not try a visualization of you achieving your goals and see where that takes you?
This guide offers 15 career lessons that you can apply to your own situations, along with actionable tips to make them happen, so why not see what these founders have to teach you?
