Hey there! 👋

I'm happy to see you here.

Every one of us might experience in our beginning stage as a professional or whatever, we have had a thought in our mind that, “The grass always looks a little greener on the other side of the fence”.

Some people are never satisfied anywhere.

You might hear that your best friend is getting paid more than you for the same job. One of your friend's social media is gaining tons of followers. One of your friends is making living out of their investments and so on.

You will see them all and think why the heck is their grass greener than yours.

Until you reach a specific position in your career, you will keep comparing and that’s what most of the newbies do, they compare their wealth with their friends and start having a sense of self-doubt. However, as a professional, you must focus on your progress rather than comparing yourself.

Just keep the focus on these three worthy pieces:-

1. Be Consistent

Consistency is the key to unlocking your true potential.

Consistent & Hardworking professionals always succeed no matter who their rival is. Always stay consistent and focused.

No matter what skill you are learning or which programming language you are mastering, stay consistent. Not only in your professional life but also in your personal life consistency plays a major role in your life.

Even if you are starting a side hustle, consistency will result in good returns. For achieving your fitness goal, consistency will make you the winner.

2. Never quit your job

You might have seen/may be heard someone in your network making tons of money from their side hustle and they have quit their job just because their side hustle generating a great passive income stream.

What are your points on this? Quit your job and start a side hustle, Quit your Job and start a successful second stream of income?

The answer is NO, never quit your job.

Even if you are willing to quit your job, take a breath and just have a few checks on your important work checklist —

  • You have a new job in your hand
  • Your side hustle is making more money than your salary
  • Your second stream has reached an outstanding return
  • Your social media account has more than 50k+ followers

If you can’t satisfy any of these checkpoints then just stick to your current job until you achieve any of the checkpoints even if you are having a constant urge to quit your job.

Work in your free time to build your passive income stream, weekends are the best suitable time. Don’t just quit your job to start a passive income stream.

3. Stay friendly, Stay humble

Whenever your peers ask you to explain something related to the project or something about new tech that you're using then you should respond only with “I would love to explain this”.

Staying friendly in your workplace is the most important thing for a professional and no matter in which position you are. You must be a good listener and listen to your peer's opinions as well.

Even if you're lead, being a friend and continuously supporting your team's achievements, and complimenting them for their accomplishments is a great sign of a professional.

That's it, folks.
