You’re not alone if eighty-hour workweeks and impending layoffs are leaving you apprehensive about your career path. Additionally, these days, countless professionals are yearning for more fulfilling careers.
Unfortunately, many business people are going through their day-to-day work activities like robots. And feeling as if they’re pedaling a bicycle uphill in the wrong gear.
They secretly yearn for feelings of freedom and self-reliance. Just like they had when they were kids pedaling away on their very own Schwinns. And Huffy or Evans Colsons.
These Two Tips Help Recapture Those Childhood Feelings to Create a Successful Career Path
1. Safely Navigate Work’s Potholes, Ruts, Curbs, and Obstacles.
In order to excel professionally, you need the ability to learn from any past mistakes rather than dwell on them.
The truth is that the only wrong mistake is one we don’t learn from. In fact, when things go wrong, we have a choice.
We can criticize ourselves and curse our own bad luck. In contrast, we can coach ourselves. And extract value from what we learned. Finally, focus on how we can handle that situation better in the future.
The next time something devastating happens to you, remember there are lessons to be learned. For example, whether it’s a layoff or a failed project.
2. Take the Direct Route on Your Career Path.
Many people are so confused at work. Even more, they don’t know what is expected of them anymore. Additionally, it’s during these times that people need to use straight talk to ask good questions.
Being Direct with Respect® means communicating openly and honestly without hurt feelings. Encourage Be Direct with Respect® in your office. And, think about what you really want to say. Next, write it down, and practice it.
The more you use it, the more comfortable you’ll feel. And the more your colleagues will follow your lead.
