How has your week been? Today marks my last day at my current company. I have been there a little over a year. I originally told myself I would stay 2 years, but I didn't know a perfect opportunity would come my way so quickly.
Happy Friday Loves!!
I went into this position without a background in politics. There was no one to train me, no one to show me where Human Resources was, etc. I figured it out because there wasn't any room not to. I needed a job. Single mom, no double income. It was do or die.
I'm not a political person, but I learned that much of everyday life is politics. People campaign for what they want every day, people try to influence others, ranking systems exist in businesses and organizations in which certain individuals hold the most power and many too many relationships are forged on bonds not made of trust and care, but of politics, beliefs and a desire to get ahead.
I don't play office politics. I believe everyone in any company or organization is valuable. From the cleaning crew to the top dog - everyone should be treated as equals. Be nice to everyone, do your work and keep your head down.
When you make up your mind that there is no room not to succeed then you predetermine your outcome to be one of success.
If you are not happy with your current job keep doing it to the best of your ability, but remain open to what you would really want to be doing. Manifest your dreams and believe they are possible and they will happen. Be vigil, be patient...when the time is right opportunity will open doors. Walk through them. Don't stay stagnant.
Making a career transition will teach you how capable you are. We are all capable. We are capable of handling change, capable of learning new things, capable of facing challenges, capable of walking away from what is comfortable toward something that will challenge us and allow us to grow.
What have you learned from your jobs?
Sending light and love - Deb xoxo
