Do you feel you have great career potential but it's not being realized? Do you feel you are not yet at the place you need to be in your career? Do you honestly feel you are incredibly smart, ambitious, and talented and just haven't found the right job, the right career, or the right employer yet?
If that sounds like you, you are not alone. Most of the workforce is not living up to their full potential. Every day I work with job seekers who have not reached the top of the ladder, realize they are so much smarter and better suited for other jobs, and yearn for more. In short, they lack career satisfaction.
I work with a lot of clients every day, and many times I wonder why they are not working for a Fortune 1,000 company. They have so much potential, so many talents, so many business gifts, and such ambition!
There are many reasons for a person to be in this situation. Perhaps they have never had any career coaching, no one would help them see their future, perhaps they've never had a mentor, perhaps they lack confidence, think no one would hire them, let lack of education hold them back from **true** success, maybe they simply don't know how to climb the career ladder.
I believe if a person has to work to earn a living, then they should be doing the type of work that really satisfies them, meets their intellectual status, gives them passion, joy, and confidence. Why be under-employed? Why not be overjoyed to walk into your job each day, be happy about your future and your career?
If you feel that you really haven't reached your potential, perhaps you want to take the first step towards career success and letting companies know you exist and how you can help them. If you're really ready to move up the ladder, maybe today is the day to make decisions that will affect your future.
