Does age matter in the workplace?
I’m just gonna come out and say it: gray hair doesn’t make you obsolete.
There’s a lot of noise out there about career opportunities diminishing with one’s fading eyesight. Even if this is a perception that’s shared by a lot of people you know, it’s just that: a perception.
You see, your age is never the issue.
But what about your age and your work attitude?
The issue is your mindset and the way you understand success! Too many people are walking around hypnotized by what everyone else is telling them to do or be. Don’t allow it!
Is the hard work myth holding you back and causing you to play small in your career?
We’ve been told all of our life that the harder you work, the better your career. But working yourself to the bone with no self-care is not the path to success!
Do you work and work and work with the same results?
→ Never moving up the ladder?
→ Never getting that pay raise?
STOP trying so hard for too little return. Stop wasting your gifts and talents in work that crushes your soul.
START paying attention to what will make you grow and save your energy for what really matters!
Your parents’ advice was wrong — is living by their “rules” holding you back?
Based on our Facebook poll, aside from those who stated they didn’t receive any career-related advice growing up, the most frequently heard advice that respondents reported receiving from their parents was, “you should become a: (fill in the blank), despite the fact that you have no interest in it.”
You need to understand how your family is still affecting your day-to-day life!!
Are your parents holding back your performance, income level, your power?
We all love our parents. While their recommendations come from a place of love (sometimes) and asking their point of view may be helpful,
Are your traumas controlling your career — or are you?
At some point in your career, you are likely to experience trauma. Perhaps it’s a negative work culture, colleagues that don’t like you, feeling overworked and underpaid, or uncertainty with how to manage up and level up. These can all leave you feeling stuck and fearful.
Aside from making you feel lousy, these feelings deaden your soul and keep you from being the best that you can be. Your trauma begins to take hold of your career. You’re unable to attract the right level of role, so your contribution is less than what it could be, and your earning power is much less.
