When office politics get out of hand, it can create a toxic work environment. But it doesn’t have to be that way. We’ll break down how to deal with office politics professionally, no matter what kind of politics are in your workplace. 

What are ‘Office Politics’?

Merriam-Webster defines Office Politics as: the activities, attitudes, or behaviors that are used to get or keep power or an advantage within a business or company. Basically, each person in the office will be liked or disliked by other people, and those positive and negative relationships with other employees create a political culture.

How to stop negative self talk (& finally reach your potential)

I’ve had the privilege of talking to many top performers and I’ve found one thing that stops them from reaching their full potential is how they talk to themselves. It may not seem like much, but negative self talk can be the one thing preventing you from living your dream life. 

But it doesn’t have to. You can start today and shift that hurtful self talk into something more positive. The way you talk to yourself can become a vehicle that helps you reach your goals instead of a barrier preventing you from obtaining them. 

Before we get into tactics, let’s take a look at how negative self talk affects us at a deep level. 

Btw, I have a video where I answer some questions about negative self talk. You can watch it below.

Are you the type of person who desperately wants to improve your social life and make new connections, but just can’t seem to break out of your shell?

If you’re familiar with Ramit’s story, then you know he’s been in that exact same place. 

Although he may come across as confident and polished now, it wasn’t too long ago that he used to be fearful of putting himself out there and meeting new people. 

There’s a story he usually tells to illustrate this. 

Ramit was attending a few networking events years ago and didn’t say a word to anyone. He was surrounded by people who were interested in the same things as him, but instead of striking up a conversation, Ramit just stared at his phone the entire time.
