When you want to get further in your career, position, earnings - look to those who are already there and are still growing. Let people take notice of you for your skill, to-the-point explanations, persuasiveness, confidence. Listen to Bonnie Crater and Jeanne Hopkins speak on this topic and tell you some of what they recommend and have followed themselves. All of the answers can't be found in books or motivational talks. You learn in the trenches by observing those who are ahead of you. You achieve it by asking them pointed questions as to how or why they chose a plan, a tactic or response.
Taylor Swift in her Grammy acceptance speech was heard saying, "As the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," And she wasn't done - at the end of the evening she continued with,
"But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."
