Next Networking to Energize Your Career-6 Next

Having a career goal is like planning a vacation. You wouldn't plan a trip without having a destination. If you did, you might see some interesting places, but chances are you would end up in a place like Alaska with only a bathing suit to keep you warm. Before you accept your next offer, ask yourself: What impact will this position have on my long-term goals? Will it strengthen my marketability or weaken it?

According to Stedman Graham, "None of us is defined by our circumstances, nor are we defined by how other people perceive us. It is up to each one of us to define ourselves, and that is a life's work. Each of us has the ability to lead a dynamic life by pursuing our unique goals and dreams. There are no limits to what you can do."

Do you bounce out of bed on Monday morning? Are you regularly presented with opportunities that challenge you to think and to grow? Does your salary equal your worth?

If you answered no to any of these questions, you could be at risk for career fatigue, a condition that weakens self-confidence and prevents advancement to new and exciting opportunities. In order to recover from its immobilizing effects, you will have to give your career as much attention as you give to your business projects. Once you accept accountability for your success or failure in the workplace, opportunities will appear that invigorate and inspire you. The following steps from TheLadders will help you grow and thrive in your professional life.
