Become Your Own Career Champion!
You can create your own positive perspective with the messages you play in your inner dialogue and then manifest those messages in the material world. You can do this for yourself. Do not allow other people to tell you, “Don’t do this,” or “You shouldn’t do that or “This is not good enough.” Instead you can say, “I know what works for me. I can make my own life and I can champion my career. I can make it happen for myself. I can be successful at whatever I choose.”
As you move through this process you will see that when you show up to work, you get to decide how your situation is going to be. There are no victims in the career development ladder unless you choose to be one. The inner voice that says, “I have to get a job,” gradually shifts to be more about, “I want to do something that serves me. I want to be in an environment that’s nurturing and productive.”
