It takes courage to shift your career and your life. Take a moment to get in touch with what you really want – a promotion, new project, new job or even a complete career shift. Some of us clearly know what we want and assertively carve our paths and move forward. But too many of us have dreams and aspirations that have been pushed aside. We are doing jobs we are good at – even great at – but we know we are destined for more.
As Steve Jobs once said “Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drowned your own inner voice and most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary”
Consider your skills and experience that are underutilized in your job. List your talents that are dormant and then make a plan to bring these to life. Understand opportunity doesn’t usually come to us – we need to look for it, create it and most importantly be ready to open every door that is presented to us. It’s hard – even frightening but we know those that lead lives that are filled with passion and life aren’t afraid to say “Yes” and seize these moments. Be bold and take that first step today to advance your career!
