Get what you want a work!

A lot of people is promoted because of their personality and not for their skills, this is a truth in the world of business, being likeable is a new quality that people need to get something that they want, I think If you show yourself as you really are and you don’t hide things about you, then you could be a likable person, but the point is that a lot people couldn’t be agree with you because you’re personality for that there is a quality very interesting which you can put on practice: diplomacy, if you’re diplomatic with people many times you will like them.

Also we should know that it’s It's important to know that when you're working, you're living 8 hours daily away from home, and that's why your office becomes your second home, now it's very important to know that we're not the 8th wonder in the world and we must strive to be better people everyday and show the other ones around us that we're worth to know and maybe our boss will be likely to promote us. There're so many things that you should learn when going to a meeting, or an interview.

We must be humble at work and everyplace we go because people feel comfortable with those ones who make them feel better, funny people or just people they can feel very good as well.
To finish with my idea I think we must strive more in being sympathetic and smart.

This is my point of view regarding to the reading in the following URL.
