Career Zinger #7: Invitational Acceptance
In 2018, as you strive to enhance your career I encourage you to avoid being coercive with yourself because when you are coercive you set yourself up for guilt and failure. You can end up transforming part of yourself that is an ally into an adversary. A powerful way to change this is to frame your desired career change as a personal invitation, not a dogmatic imposition. I like receiving invitations. I don’t like feeling I am being pushed into something — even when I am pushing myself. Declining an invitation does not feel fatal nor final. Career development requires a caring and careful approach to embark down a new of different path. A career goal is not a career gaol – break out of the mental jail of bullying yourself to change yourself.
I’m David Zinger, engage along with me, the best is yet to be.
