Feb 21 Tired of Treading Water? Jump-start your Career this Year
It’s only February and the year is still new. This is the time to make up your mind to reinvent yourself and realign your reality with your dreams. Throw off the old stagnant, running-in-place treadmill patterns in favor of fresh, lively, exciting career success. Celebrate your true full potential. Get to where you want to be in 2012 without any dull delays or aggravating detours.
The problem is, of course, that after doing an attitude adjustment and making some passionate resolutions, we realize that when we hit the ground running the ground often hits back – and that pavement is hard. You have to have perseverance and maintain mental strength each and every month.
That’s why highly successful people and great competitors who “have heart” also have vigilant, demanding coaches to keep them in the zone. Sure, we all need to muster individual strength and a sustained belief in ourselves. But the ones who actually make it to the top are those who don’t go it alone. That is especially true for leaders who are expected to provide guidance and inspiration to their employees through uphill battles. You cannot do that without having a great coach in your corner. In times like these you need someone who believes in you more than you believe in yourself.
Fortunately, as the Zen saying goes, “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” Am I the right person to fulfill that role and ensure that you have what you need to make this your most successful career year? I don’t know, and neither do you. But I do know that it is worth it for both of us to talk, let me hear your challenges, and find out. We have nothing to lose and the potential for gain could be the difference that makes this the year for your pivotal promotion. Feel free to contact me (Link) to set up a call. I’d love to get to know you better and find out what kind of symbiosis we can generate.
