If you’re ready to begin the journey to become a successful business leader, you’ll need to know how to dress, how to speak and how to make critical decisions. The most important thing to wear to any office function is a smile. Comfort and self-assurance are attractive and speak volumes about your competence in business leadership. When considering what to wear every day, start there. After you have the inside of you dressed for success with a positive attitude, you will be able to dress the outside as well.
In business, being a good communicator may be the difference between making the right deals with the right people. Communication is critical in this fast paced and competitive world. Knowing when to speak up in a meeting or even in the hallway is an important skill.
Knowing when to keep silent is a skill as well. Mark Twain said, “If you have nothing to say, say nothing.” That is a golden piece of advice. Be sure that if you interject something, it is of value.
Additionally, body language is very telling. Good posture, an easy smile, and a firm handshake speak volumes about your self-confidence and give the impression that you are competent and able. On the other hand, crossed arms, not looking others in the eyes, and a lackluster grip, even for women, says that you are uninterested in or uncertain about the proceedings you are involved in. Either way, it reflects poorly on yourself and your company.
Below is a quote from Create Abundance by Zhang Xinyue:
What a fascinating energy it is to create abundance! It is the origin of love and gratitude, as well as the origin of all matters, including one’s heartbeat. It is certainly the key assistance to all success!
With many years as a well-known spiritualist leader and teacher in her field, Zhang Xinyue is known for a variety of achievements. Her creation of the Abundance system aims to promote a meaningful and straight forward approach to life’s philosophical issues. In 2012, she finished one of her best-selling books, Create Abundance. The book is a collection of quotes containing words of wisdom on how to develop body-mind-spirit cultivation.
Zhang Xinyue’s Create Abundance was initially released in Chinese, but it is also available in English and other languages now. A second version of the book has also recently been released.
