Now you’ve got to put the whole package together – you’ve got to walk the walk. You’ve got to become whoever and whatever it is you aspire to be. This isn’t mimicry but training. If you can’t walk the walk, you can’t do the job.
Remember though what we said right from the outset – you have to be able to come up with the goods, you must be able to do the job – and do it well. That is the bottom line. If you can’t do the job leave the stage.
These rules are not for the bullshitters or the poseurs. They are for the really industrious, the talented, the hard working, the naturally gifted; those who are prepared to put in some effort and burn some oil.
Study the job that you aspire to. Who is doing it now? Learn to think of them as the person who is doing your job. How are they handling it? Learn to appraise those who are senior to you in the way that they appraise you. Don’t moan or whinge about how your boss does the job – observe instead their mistakes and learn and profit from them. Watch where they go wrong and swear never to make the same mistakes. Watch what they do superbly well and start practicing their smart moves now.
If you are going to walk your walk you have to have the right mannerisms, the right dress code, the right way of speaking, the right way of acting, the right response and the right attitude. You only get these if you are prepared to put in some time carrying out a four point plan:
“YOU’VE GOT TO BECOME WHOEVER AND WHATEVER IT IS YOU ASPIRE TO BE”.
If you are prepared to do these four things you will fly. Of course, you also have to do these without anyone knowing what you are doing – as well as doing your normal everyday job as well. Tough order? Of course. Who said it was going to be easy?
