People say life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it…. Yeah tell that to the person who just got fired and has 5 mouths to feed.
Have you ever felt bored or frustrated that your career isn’t everything you thought it would be and had that feeling that something better must be out there somewhere? Or maybe you’ve been let go from your job and are filled with a mixture of uncertainty and dread realizing you actually hated your job but have no idea what you really should be doing?
Feeling frustrated and stuck is natural when you lose your job, are bored to death with your career or the promotion you were promised didn’t come through. After you’ve had a meltdown, sat around in your PJ’s in disbelief or launched into full second-guessing mode; what happens next is what makes the difference between those who go on to have a wildly successful and fulfilling career and those who stay stuck, frustrated and unfulfilled.
It’s easy to blame others, feel crushed by all the barriers that seem to be in the way right now and focus on all the things that didn’t work out in your favor. Maybe you’re right. Maybe you’re wrong. It doesn’t matter. What’s important is what you do next.
That one game changing thing is your PERSPECTIVE. You need to shift how you are managing your career. You either take back control over your career or you let others control it. I’m going to bet you want to take back control.
But how do you do that? How do you overcome a global pandemic that has caused a massive recession to achieve your dreams? Should you put your aspirations on hold until things return to ‘normal’?
Of course not – that’s why I’m writing these blog posts! In my last article, I spoke about the importance of following a three step process that will change everything for you: PERSPECTIVE, TACTICS AND TIMING. Today we’re going to talk about the first (and most important) thing you need to succeed no matter what… your perspective.
I know with complete certainty when you make three mindset shifts things will begin to change in a big way for you. But why should you?
If you want to achieve something and still haven’t figured out how to make it happen, it’s highly likely your current perspective is not serving you well. It needs a kick start to get back in the right direction. Typically it’s the biggest thing that is holding you back from achieving the fulfilled career you really want.
Maybe you’ve been handed a raw deal or maybe you don’t know where to start or maybe you’ve been stuck for a long time on what to do next. It doesn’t really matter why. The fact is you’re coming up short and it doesn’t have to be that way.
You deserve success on your terms. You deserve to be happy, to reach your goals and to have what you want from your career. You deserve to invest in yourself and your future.
What if even a small shift in how you’re thinking opens you up a new world of possibilities that you can actually achieve? I’m not talking pie-in-the-sky fairy tales; I’m talking big dreams coming to life in less than six months kind-of possibilities. I’ve seen this happen hundreds of times and when that moment hits… it’s magical!
