17 May Do You Suffer From Any Of These Career-Killing Symptoms?
“Do what you love and you never work a day in your life.”
We’ve all heard that quote time and time again, but what happens if you’re not doing what you love, or loving what you’re doing? When we are frustrated in our current job or industry, it can be a fast way to get us stuck in a serious slump. Ask yourself if you suffer from any of these career-killing symptoms:
You Are Not Being Seen Or Heard In Your Job: I think that many people start to feel this way over time. You offer up great ideas and suggestions that are never picked up, and after a while, it makes you want to keep quiet and small. It’s easy to fall into that “what’s the point?” type of attitude when you consistently feel that you’re being overlooked.
You Are Consistently Passed Up For Promotions: Oftentimes, great employees lose out on a promotion to someone else, no matter how hard they work. Whether this is due to politics, kissing up, or any other factors that can come into play, you can easily start to feel undervalued when the promotions continually go elsewhere.
You Question Whether Your Job Or Career Is Even Right For You: If you’re constantly questioning whether you’re even in the right line of work, there’s good reason for that. Sometimes we just lose our confidence along the way, but usually there’s some part of us deep down that knows it’s wrong for us. No matter how many excuses you may make to stay, your intuition always knows best. Trust those nudges!
You Want To Do Something Different, But Don’t Know Where To Start: This is where a lot of people tend to find themselves. So often my clients know they want a change, but they have no idea where to even begin. Just know that you’re not alone, and that the right options can be explored to help you land on exactly what you’re looking for.
You Are Going Through A Difficult Career Transition and Need Support: If you are having a hard time with your current career transition, just know that you don’t have to go it alone. The right people and resources are out there to help you through this challenging time.
