…It is a great question you should ask yourself. Think about it and meditate on it. Even if you have a part-time job or a temp gig, you need to truly think about what your current position is going to do for you now and in the future. Sometimes it isn’t the job itself but the opportunities that surround it–perhaps you have a good manager who might be looking for a promotion–because they want to grow. It might be regular customers who own their own businesses–meaning: network with them; you have to continually think outside the box in order to find your next stepping stone.
You still might be thinking to yourself that there is absolutely no opportunity with your job. Ok, that’s fine. Then consider moving on and finding something with an opportunity for you to grow. A change of scenery can really help you out and give you a renewed perception on your career and life.
Ultimately you have the power to excel and make a difference. All it takes is a realization that you can make things happen and that positive feelings can get a fire burning under those you are working with. They might find your attitude, your zeal, your positive way of thinking something that they want for themselves. Even if your job isn’t great, there are many ways of inspiring others and get something out of your job that can rocket your career!
You just have to always be curious and always want to be better.
