Success depends on a number of factors beyond the central elements of hard work and passion. The best professionals care immensely about what they do and put their hearts into every task. Positivity, however, remains a major factor of success. Employees should offer solutions, not problems. The most successful professionals anticipate problems with thoroughly reasoned solutions. Other central elements include patience and confidence. People inevitably act in underhanded or obnoxious manners, and employees must meet such behavior with grace and rise above it with the confidence that people will come through when needed.

Employees must also have fun on the job. Without proper balance, productivity can quickly wane. Fun can also prove productive. For example, learning about different products and services can offer a break from the task at hand while providing a fresh perspective.
