Is Your Career Ladder Missing Rungs?
Reaching for career perfection is a goal of every person stemming from the dreams of their youth. Laying in your bed as a young child, you dreamt of one day being a firefighter, princess, or a successful business owner. Today, millions are struggling simply to call themselves 'employed'.
As you lackadaisically finalize your scholastic path, you seem to feel this sense that your world has become so small, and your career ladder has lost several rungs before ever starting. Entering into your first job out of college, you now feel like a corporate slave rather than a person with a successful and emotionally gratifying career. New York Times reports how college actually forms majors that are more career-focused.
Anymore, does that really matter?
Add Rungs While You Can
Simply staying put in a job that has no long term benefit for you or your family has more than negative financial recourse; it can also cause your emotional self to wear down to the point of ineffectively raising kids or even being a wife. In order to get your current career life properly assessed, you'll need to reiterate what initially shrank your ladder in the first place. Was it some influential assistance that guided your decisions in the wrong direction in chasing your dreams, or perhaps could it have been simply the lack of available resources that prevented you from catapulting higher up the ladder?
No matter the reasoning for your current unhappy state, you need to do the dreaded 'moral inventory' to see where your path has led you to this point, and once you find the fork you once faced, you can then choose the next road to take that may perhaps create better, more fruitful and emotionally gratifying opportunities for you to explore.Continued on the next page
