I once read from a post of Brigitte Hyacinth, author of "The Future of Leadership: Rise of Automation, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence," that "to be kind is more important than to be right. Many times, what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a special heart that listens."

We are in a digital age and we can't help but get on the wagon of competition and technological adaptation. People nowadays work like robots. They are powered to work to reach deadlines and targets. What was left was the "real" connection among humans. Walking to the ladder of success is very steep. So, how do you know if you will succeed in this generation of gadgets and robotics?

1. Be God-centered.

2. Be technology-wise. Take time to learn the ins and outs of the most commonly used technology at work. Don't let yourself be left out with the trend.

3. Your edge of getting the top seat is confidence and faith in yourself. If you can do it, then believe you can do it.

4. Most of all, learn to use your charm to connect to people. Sometimes, these people are your gateway to success.
