This article from Business Insider discusses how attitude is more important than IQ. It gives these tips:


-don't stay helpless

-be passionate

-take action

-then go the extra mile (or two)

-expect results

-be flexible (this can be difficult!)

-don't complain when things don't go your way


We hope you find something that resonates with you in the article:
