Have you ever thought about your own attitude at work? Perhaps that is the reason why people do not like you. For many of us it is easy to look at others and blame them instead of ourselves. After all, we are human. How many of us like to admit our own mistakes? When something doesn’t go the way it is supposed to at work, “Oh, so-and-so didn’t do this and that.” Often times, you forget your own roles that you did not perform. Your attitude is looking at others' faults first before you point the accusing finger at yourself. I always say this; when you point a finger at others, remember three are pointing back at you. When you realize that people at work do not like you, then it is time to look at your own attitude. Have the wisdom and will power to know that you can make a positive change. It doesn’t mean that you are weak. It doesn’t mean that you are a lesser person. It just means that you can improve yourself. When you improve yourself, you increase the chances of career success. Indeed, not just career success, but personal success, too!
