You have a proven track record of achieving solid results in your ideal career. You know what type of work you truly love and were meant to do and the projects that give you fulfillment and allow you to make a positive impact. You’re now ready to grow and go to your next level. The problem is, you’ve been playing it safe in your career by not getting outside of your comfort zone.
Instead of shying away from standing out and being your most authentic self at work, it’s time for you to play a bigger game in your career in order for you to dramatically increase your income doing meaningful work that leverages your strengths and demonstrates your true leadership abilities.
Here are four strategies that will help you.
- Believe in your vision of success. See yourself in the future having already achieved the results that you desire right now. Believe without a shadow of a doubt that your vision of success is coming to fruition at its due season. Don’t allow your belief to be determined by external factors, positive or negative. When faced with setbacks, roadblocks or disappointments embrace them as learning opportunities, knowing they are designed for your growth and development. Your unwavering belief in your vision will have you stand out as the unstoppable leader that you truly are.
- Take inspired action. The real secret to achieving results is taking consistent action. When your actions are inspired by your vision of success, you’ll be more effective in achieving your goals. What can you do today that will bring you one step closer to going to your next level in your ideal career? What can you stop doing today that will bring you one step closer to achieving career growth goals? Consistency is what separates those who want to achieve their career growth goals and those who are committed to achieving their career growth goals. There’s a difference.
- Detach from your results. When you’re results-oriented and your strengths are in planning and strategy, it can be difficult to detach from your timelines and timetables. Detach from when you expect to see the results of your hard work. Instead focus on your impact and effectiveness as a leader. Detaching will actually help you attract more success in amazing and unexpected ways. You’ll find that being detached allows you to enjoy your career growth journey and be in awe by the miracles and blessings that accompany you.
- Nourish your soul. Whether it’s going for a bike ride, spending time in prayer and meditation, enjoying your favorite creative hobby, playing with your children or enjoying the companionship of your spouse, you must engage in soul nourishment activities on a daily basis. These are critical to your long-term success. They help you manage your energy, perform at your best and enjoy a productive and fully engaged life.
