Right For The Job
Job security is a thing of the past. Anything can happen to anyone at any time and people are scared because there is no certainty when it comes to a consistent income unless you create that opportunity for yourself. Even when you are secure with a salary, it doesn’t mean that you are secure in your sense of being. Job fulfilment shouldn’t have to be an afterthought because you devote a significant amount of your time to your career. You have to ask yourself if you want to create that fulfils your needs financially and otherwise.
Instead of changing yourself to fit the parameters of a job, look to create a profitable career that fits your skill set. With determination and tenacity, this is achievable. For many, it involves a complete shift in their direction. Evaluating your circumstances will help to give you a clearer understanding of what makes you unhappy. This could be anything from an unsatisfactory salary to an inconvenient daily commute. You should determine the parameters of your ideal path as long as they are reasonable.
It is perfectly acceptable to have standards for your ideal career choice. You will find that starting your own venture is more nerve-racking than simply applying for a job, but you might feel some of the same insecurities. A lack of work experience or expertise, especially in a new field, can manifest as imposter syndrome. Working professionals often feel this way when they lack confidence in their abilities.
The only way to reinforce this is by continuously upgrading your skills and challenging yourself. Put yourself into action. Accepting that you are always learning can be a tough pill to swallow if you are guided by your ego. Letting go of that will allow you to accept the inevitable failures you will face. Failure is just a few steps before success, so don’t take it personally.
Sure, it would be great to have things go your way at all times, but that’s not likely to happen. Reality doesn’t work that way. If you want to reach large goals, like starting a business or finding your ideal career, it will take some trial and error. That’s why planning and organizing your time and resources will help.
Don’t waste months trying to sort out things that could have taken much less time if you were just willing to sit down with yourself and honestly assess what you need to do. Forming a concrete plan will allow confident decision-making. This is the bedrock of a strong foundation and, coupled with consistent action, there is no way that you cannot be successful. All you have to do is ensure your activities actively contribute to your goals.

Business owners and service providers need to be a little bit more selfish, don’t they? I don’t mean selfish in the sense that they should embody corporate greed, but selfish with their time.

It’s not that you don’t value your own time, but you only value it when others do.Read More

The problem many individuals and small businesses face is the technical knowledge and personnel to make this happen.Read More

When smaller companies launch products or services, it is usually because they have a personal connection with them.Read More
