10 Rules for Career Success from Folarin Longe

Folarin Longe, founder of Human Edge Limited, a human resources consulting and staffing services firm based in Lagos, Nigeria developed this list of 10 Rules of Success.

Your goal should be to apply Longe’s 10 rules of success, to your own career. It is not too early to develop these behaviors whether you are ready to start your career or not.

Rule #1 – Be a constant learner and absorb formal and informal training
Rule #2 – Be humble. You might be surprised at the source of new ideas
Rule #3 – Be Pro-Active. Take responsibility for your own growth and development
Rule #4 – Develop a “Hardy Attitude” and be willing to take as much as you give.
Rule #5 – Be friendly yet professional
Rule #6 – Be hardworking, enthusiastic and passionate
Rule #7 – Recognize the commercial imperative
Rule #8 – Be exceptionally good at something
Rule #9 – Develop good interpersonal skills
Rule #10 – It’s ok to be ambitious

Longe goes in depth with each of these 10 rules of success and I encourage you to check out the complete article for more insight into one or more of these rules.
