If you have the right attitude at work you should be able to confidently answer “yes” to these questions, according to Amazon CEO Andy Jassy.

Amazon CEO Andy Jassy said that way to get ahead at work is not being a fast learner or being the smartest. The secret to success at work is having a positive attitude, he said, sharing the “best career advice” in a new interview with LinkedIn CEO Ryan Roslansky. Andy Jassy became the CEO of the company after Jeff Bezos stepped down in 2021.

And it was just an incredible experience.”
