career advice

You have the power to change your life, and direct the course you want it to take. There is no gimmick, expensive solution, or trick to this. You simply need to first know what you want, what your values are, and absolutely believe that you have the power to chart and follow your course. The reason so many people give up on their dreams of changing their life is simply that they give up on themselves and allow other factors to be the cause of their actions, rather than continuing to harness the power of their own thoughts and values.

Seek to understand yourself.

In order to define the life you want, you need to work on your foundation. Assess the skill level and abilities that you have in your arsenal. Once you know what you are working with, building the future you want, regarding your career and life will get much easier!

Take responsibility for your own life.

Change is possible when you stop looking at your surrounding circumstances, blaming outside forces, and define your desires. If you go through life not knowing what you want out of it, are unwilling to acknowledge your limitations, and forget to invest in yourself, you will not see change.

Accept that you are powerful beyond measure.

You have all the tools you need if you just acknowledge their existence. The human spirit is capable of amazing things, pushing people to succeed beyond their wildest dreams. Engaging in developing your natural abilities will help make your dreams a reality.  Seek to become a powerhouse, by becoming an expert at what you do. Give back, listen often, and keep things relative to stay humble. Take time to relax regularly, and even consider meditation. Tune into your inner self and visualize your future as you want to see it.  There is tremendous power in visualization and meditation.  Try it. It doesn’t cost anything and you just may like it!  Just taking some time out will also permit you to return to your tasks with renewed vigor.

Focus on the small wins.

When we focus on the good, celebrate our small victories, and work toward a larger goal with significant impact, we win at life. Realizing that we are constantly in a state of flux, consistently building toward our dreams, and staying flexible makes huge changes in our lives and others.

Expand your knowledge.

Taking workshops helps foster a sense of community. Everyone is going through their individual journey of weathering life’s ups and downs, and figuring out their lives. Every day we encounter moments, which can help fortify our character, strengthen our resolve, and teach us something invaluable. Seize those moments. Embrace reading voraciously. Practice mindfulness and gratitude, to keep yourself balanced and energize your brain. Creating the change you want in the world is possible, once you harness your skills, practice consistently the actions which net you the most results, and stay focused.
Most importantly, take advantage of the resources around you. Have coffee with an executive in your industry. Build a new relationship with someone who is successful in the area you want to grow within.  Seek out free tools and guidance.  Get started today by registering for ProTilly’s webinar, A Guide To Personal Marketing, or contact us for a complimentary 30-minute consultation.
