The beginning of a new year brings the promise of a fresh start. However, like many others, you may struggle with a stalled career or lack of personal and professional growth. The prospect of initiating change is daunting. This is particularly true if you’re looking for a job, wanting to change companies or start a new career.
When times are good, you are charging forward on autopilot without much thought. You are positive and focused on the future. When times are bad, you suddenly feel as though you are stuck in neutral, or worse yet, on reverse. You quickly become mired in negative thoughts and lose perspective and hope about the future. This can easily show up in your attitude and how you present yourself. People want to hire and be around people who are positive and will bring a good attitude to work everyday.
Finding your way out of career and life gridlock requires you to think differently by following three concepts:
Think good thoughts. Focus on the positive and the good in your life. To help you get started, visualize where you have been and where you are heading by creating a diagram of your Life Arc. On a piece of paper, plot your career and life milestones from your twenties, thirties, forties, and beyond. Reflect on past work and life experiences where you’ve been fulfilled and successful. What were you doing, with whom and how were you being to create that success? When were you enjoying life the most? When were you having a positive impact on others? When were you feeling the most fulfilled?
