Ever wonder why some people zoom ahead in their career success and you seem to stand in place, waiting?
Waiting to be discovered, recognized and seen as the awesome person and valuable career “pro” you are?
It is about time for you to SEIZE THE DAY! Carpe Diem….you successful person, YOU!
When I reflected deeply in many points of my successful career, how I approached promotions, how I asked for raises, thoughts of certain jobs being too big for me to handle…
I realized it was all from coming from a place of defeat and struggle.
When I took stock of my real accomplishments, who I am inside, what I have to offer (again, from the inside)…
I realized I am all that. However, I had bad habits. I often came from feeling less and needing more, I came from low-confidence and needing others to “see” me, hand me the opportunity.

That old saying, “You don’t get what you deserve, you get what you ask for, just seemed to harsh, to pessimistic. Finally, it was time to dig deep and change a few things, really get my confidence to soar, create a true vision of what I am capable of achieving and pushing through the tough times and, not letting one or two setbacks or defeats define me.
The 3 foolproof ways to guarantee success are:
Confidence, Vision, and Persistence.
Confidence is all about feeling worthy deep inside. When you know you are capable, you are worthy and you are ready for more, you go for it. Write down 10 accomplishments you have made in your career. When have you accomplished something valuable for your employer or company? Next, write down how you had to “show -up” to do that. Who did you have to be?
For example, WHAT YOU DID: you re-organized the vendor listing for purchasing and saved rework and lost time for the department. HOW YOU HAD TO SHOW UP: I had to take initiative and feel certain I knew how to do the project. I proceeded knowing I was making a difference. Make your notes and dance in your success and feelings of confidence. Want more of this?
Vision is creating a bigger picture of you and your future and your worth.
Think of you as the next version of you, the next step in your career, the next step in your life. Who are you 3 years from now? In my FREE CLARITY CALL, I always ask deep questions, and the one that gets most folks,
“where will you be in 3 years?” Do you know the answer? Do you have a vision of your future? Do you know why you want to be more successful? Get a good idea of your next step in your career or chapter in life. Picture it. REALLY! Imagine you there. Imagine it and feel what it feels like to be moving up, moving on and being a bigger version of you. Do it now as a journal exercise.
Persistence is the best character trait to lean on when you truly want more.
Growth comes over time, it comes with lessons to learn and obstacles to climb. Your next steps may be full of lessons and opportunities to grow. As a matter of fact, you cannot grow without lessons and learning. Take it all in and expand. It takes time to grow as a person and you must do that to reach the next level. You cannot be the same person as coordinator of your department as you are as manager or director. You must grow to get more. So….GROW! Be persistent for your own expansion. As I say to folks in my programs and who I coach….keep walking! This life journey we are all on does not end….it keeps going, more growth, more “riches”, then more growth and more success.
