Countless times in my seventeen years professional working experience, l have come to the realisation that, your attitude will determine your career altitude. Bottleneck abound as you navigate your career path but your attitude in dealing with the challenges that comes your way will separate you from the crowd. Challenges may vary from time to time and from one person to another, the underlining approach that surmounts every difficulty that comes your way will be your attitude to forge ahead irrespective.
The challenge that confronts some may be that they never even get started in their desired career path due to objections from Employers and will give up their career dreams on the basis of that. For some, it might be that stagnancy in their career path will be enough to throw in the towel and give up their career aspirations. For others, it might be due to redundancy from an Organisation which they have given so much to and are just generally discouraged about kick-starting their career with another Organisation.
Irrespective of where you are with yours, nothing less than the peak of your career is what you should be aiming for. While some may be satisfied being a low level employee throughout their career for reasons l struggle to understand, some are just not determined enough to move from middle level to senior level due to some peculiar challenges that accompany career ascension at the executive level.
In as much that l understand that not everyone is cut out to aspire to the very top of an Organisation as an employee and are just hanging in there to acquire the necessary experience to step out to be an employer of labour, it is worth the while to get the very best from your career path while you incubate your desired destination within any Organisation you find yourself.
This takes me to two critical keys that will drive the right attitude within you and will be great contributing factors that determine your career altitude:
1.POSITIVE MINDSET: Always make up your mind that you will achieve your goals as long as you are willing to do the needful. Be determined to do what is right to take you to your expected destination. Never take solace in the fact that some have tried but could not achieve their goals. Let your benchmark be those that are where you would like to be. Quit the company of the crowd that believes your aspirations are not possible.
2.STRIVE TO BE INDISPENSABLE: Develop yourself to ensure you are always sought after. Every progressive Organisation would hold on to employees that are adding value. As long as an Organisation remains a going concern business, the most valuable will always form the nucleus of the Organisation. Only retrogressive Organisations get rid of the most valuable employees for whatever reasons and you should not be there anyway.
