Are You in Control of Your Career Development?

Are you doing everything possible to steer your own career growth and development? Are you periodically taking stock of your current trajectory and reassessing your actions to identify opportunities for improvement? If you answered no, it is time to do so! Your success is a direct result of self-investment, so don’t wait for someone else to give you an opportunity. Prepare yourself for success, and take every step necessary to ensure you get there.

It is well worth it to invest in yourself, as nothing is more rewarding than reaping the benefits of hard work and dedication to your own professional growth and development. We live in a society where we are conditioned to evaluate our self-worth based on college degrees earned, “important” job titles, large salaries, and office size. Don’t fall into this trap! Instead, create your own standards and plan your path based on your own individual goals.

You can achieve all goals you set for yourself if you work really hard to get there. One of my friends, for example, wanted to do her master in sustainability. A lot of her acquaintances warned her about how studying a course on sustainability might be a waste of time, but she didn’t let that deter her. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Acknowledge your own power and use it to propel you to success. Refuse to let anyone set standards for you. Uplift yourself and raise your own bar based on your personal goals. Remember, you are in control of your life, so set goals and work towards achieving them. Push yourself daily to be greater, and work tirelessly to set yourself apart from everyone else.
