While the prospects for greater upward mobility in my career, more money and a nice benefits package — including more vacation time and better insurance — definitely made the move worthwhile, leaving family and friends behind in order to chase career gold nearly 2,000 miles away was a scary and stressful idea.

We all have dreams and hopes for the future — things that we want to achieve, places we want to visit or move to.

Dreams are what can motivate us to get through school, to do the internship, to serve at the bottom until the pathway to the top opens up.

If your dream feels particularly elusive, then maybe you have some of those internal obstacles holding you back.

How to Succeed: Listen More

how to listen

Far too many of us talk a lot but listen very little.

That probably means that we aren’t hearing all of the information that people are trying to provide to us.

It might mean that we are actually missing quite a lot.

Active listening can help us to both hear and learn more. It doesn’t mean that we can’t speak, but almost all can profit from listening to what others — especially our work colleagues — are trying to communicate to us.

5 Beliefs Limiting Your Success

self-limiting

A few days ago, I was introduced to a talented executive I’ll call Edward, who was brimming with potential.

He was a results-oriented, driven self-starter who had aspirations to advance in his career.

He was bright, attractive, and able to come up with innovative, yet practical ideas with ease.

However, while he had a lot of strengths, it quickly became evident that he overplayed some of them into weaknesses.

For example, he was so focused on winning that I began to feel as though every interchange we had was a competition in which he was trying to show me how intelligent he was. The more I talked to him, the more I realized that unless he was open to some serious coaching, his attitudes would make it difficult for him to realize his vast potential.

In my role as a corporate psychologist, I work with a host of talented professionals like Edward who are eager to make the most of themselves in order to grow their businesses and advance in their careers. Click Here to Read Article …
