High achievers are often thought as the luckiest people who achieve whatever they think about. Life offers them the best of the best opportunities which they grab and outshine. These people make their mark while others are just struggling through their career. This lucky charm or success whatever others might call it is careering momentum; a consequence of consistency, defined goals and persistent hard work in their achievement, last but not the least strong relationships developed with people through healthy communication.
Nothing can replace hard work not even luck, and this hard work is the secret ingredient of creating career momentum. Many average people flourish and make progress by leaps and bounds within a matter of years after beginning their career while many sharp and intelligent ones lose the game, so what’s behind such success and failure? No wondering, it is the career momentum. But how can this career momentum be boosted?
