Your approach to changing careers is either empowered or stifled depending on your attitude.
I want to talk with you about the vital attitude that has empowered countless people to make incredible career changes…
… even though they lacked the ‘required’ skills, experience and education required by employers for their new careers.
People who understand and master this create extraordinary career changes…
Optimism is an attitude that EXPECTS a good outcome. It is a positive and affirming attitude towards your life and career possibilities.
Optimism is the fuel of hope, the enemy of uncertainty, and one of the most important creators of your future. Optimism is the general attitude of people who create and achieve the life and career success they want.
The principles of optimism hold the keys for unlocking your career potential. An optimist responds to uncertainties, doubts and obstacles with a focus on the possibility and opportunity for growth and achievement in each situation. An optimist stays in action through continued and persistent efforts.
In contrast, a pessimist focuses on their worry and doubts. They blame themselves, others or something outside of their control. Their thoughts cause them to feel hopelessness. They stagnate. And then they throw in the towel.
Don’t get me wrong… we all experience some worries and doubts in our lives and careers. But the fundamental difference between an optimist and a pessimist is that the pessimist’s attitude makes their situation WORSE by focusing too strongly on negativity… so they can no longer see the possibilities and opportunities that really exist in a situation.
Their pessimistic attitude causes them to get stuck and it becomes nearly impossible to move forward and have the success they want.
Being optimistic doesn’t mean that you put a forced smile on your face and tell yourself that everything’s going to work out for the best. Genuine optimism begins when you tune your focus to the potential value and benefits that are in each experience and situation in life.
Optimism strengthens as you find helpful information and strategies, and you continue to stay in action. Optimism steadily grows into a belief that you have significant control over your situation and you will create a better tomorrow
This world really is filled with nearly infinite possibility when you have an optimistic attitude.
I’ve seen many people at all stages of their career land incredible new careers, even though they lacked many of the skills, experience and education required by employers for their new careers.
How did they do it? They responded to their uncertainties, doubts and obstacles with a focus on the possibility and opportunity for achievement in each situation. And they stayed in action through continued and persistent efforts.
Developing and strengthening an optimistic attitude is one of the most effective ways of adding to your personal power and creating the career success you want.
In closing, always remember that you can find and land the right new career opportunity for you by being dedicated, having the right perspectives and persistently taking the prudent actions.
To Your Success,
