How do you present yourself as a successful individual? Merging into the business world I often find myself asking this question. Is it how I dress, act, speak, etc.? Does it depend on the situation or who you are with - or is it the same for every situation youre in? Just curious as I know I'll be meeting with "important" people soon and want to be successful in those interactions. THNX

I don't think this kind of question has a universal answer.
Its very subjective and each person will answer it differently.
If I were to be asked that question I answer with a question:
What do you define as successful?
Then depending on the answer I'd know what to answer my self.

By the way, it sound like you are concerned with being able to give the "correct" answer for this.
The correct answer is an honest one.
If they don't like what they hear, then you don't want to work there, since you will never be a successful person in that organisation if what they count as successful and what you are seeing as successful is not compatible.
If you tell them what they want to hear, but its not what you really think, this will show up later during work, and you will be miserable for not being able to be what they expect.

THNX for your reply. I definitely agree that. It is based on unique situation. Specifically speaking business: I believe that it takes a lot of CONFIDENCE. I believe that's a huge step toward success. Funny, I had this conversation with my hubby yesterday and he thinks the same thing. We actually went the next day to http://www.josbank.com/bigntall to get him a brand new suit for a meeting LOL. Now I'm not saying material items are what makes someone successful - confidence does. To each their own.

The correct answer is an honest one.

If I were interviewing you, that's what I would want to hear. I would be more interested to know if you are an independent thinker who is not afraid to try to solve problems you have never seen before. I'm not going to give you a C++ test and grade you on the result. Someone who starts a "What's for dinner?" thread on a programming forum is the kind of candidate I'd like to see. Not afraid to do something unusual.

Unfortunately, if you are trying to get a job with one of the top-tier companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, or Microsoft, honesty probably won't even get you past the resume-screening phase. If your resume doesn't have all the right keywords that the computer can use to decide if you have the experience needed, out you go into the reject pile. And headhunters will put you in any job, whether you are qualified or not, just so they can get their bonus.

And yes, good luck!

The way you see yourself will shape the way others see you. The way you think about yourself determines how you do everything. It affects the way you prospect, the way you interview, the way you present, the way you close, the way you manage your time - it shapes everything you do. As a result, people will see you the way you perceive yourself.

I would like to ask for advice on how you are struggling with the fact that accounts are constantly polluted? My funnel and ads for this stopped working. I think to clean everything on the server https://spamguardapp.com/
There will be an automatic blocking of unwanted comments and subscriptions that you will not even see and they will not be disturbed. There is a free test analysis and cleaning. There is a white list to protect necessary and important accounts from deletion.

Faced this problem through my first steps in the business world. Especially I was afraid during public speaking, was so worried because couldn't write a good speech. So I asked these guys (https://writingcheap.com/cheap-dissertation-writing.html) for help. Now I feel much more confident. Hope this can help you too.
