If you don’t take ownership of your career, ask for opportunities, advocate for yourself and continually ensure you’re staying ‘relevant’, you WILL fall behind. Here are 7 truths, following which you will achieve what you deserve.
That prestigious diploma? Its shelf life is shorter than you think. Continuous learning is your only defence against career irrelevance.
You're doing great work? Fantastic! But if nobody knows about it, it's like it never happened. Visibility is currency.
Your colossal blunders might just be more valuable than your biggest wins. Failure, and how you navigate it, is often the real litmus test for growth.
Loyalty to a company doesn't guarantee lifelong employment. You need to consistently prove your value and adapt to changing needs.
A promotion or fancy title doesn't automatically garner respect. It's earned by consistency, authenticity, and delivering results.
No matter your title or tenure, always have a Plan B. The most "stable" industries or roles can be upended overnight.
Depending on a manager to navigate your career path is a mistake. Take charge, seek opportunities, and carve your own path.
