5 Reasons To Move On

Have you ever searched for another job during your current employment?

Have you lost interest in what once was exciting?

Do you get excuses as to why you haven’t been hired full-time or promoted?

Do other employees hired after you seem to hit it off with the boss when you don’t even get a “hello”?

Are others doing challenging tasks you have asked for?

If you truly feel a lack of compassion and are no longer motivated, it’s time to move on if not, keep reading.

You can either do one or two things:

1. Set up a meeting with your boss to discuss your current position OR

2. Move on.

Before you pick option 2, try to pinpoint why you haven’t been promoted or hired full-time. Sometimes we can find the problem within ourselves. If you were once given a task and your response was, “This is not in my job description,” more than likely, you will not be asked again.

Also, if you are the type to see the glass half empty instead of half-full, you are part of the problem. An employer wants employees that own their position and are not afraid to take on tasks that are sometimes not in the job description.

How can you get a promotion or considered for full-time employment?

1. Ask if you can crosstrain on positions within your department or even the company, particularly those positions that are of interest to you. This will let the employer know you are more than willing to learn and have specific goals in mind to help solve the company’s problems when needed in an unexpected situation. You are part of the solution. Don’t stretch yourself too thin!

2. If you have completed all your tasks, ask other co-workers if they have anything you can help with (make sure they are not pushing work off on you so they can have free time and receive all the credit). If not, construct a list of things you would like to learn and set up a meeting with your boss.

3. Arrive a few minutes early to work if you are normally a late person and stay a few minutes after everyone else has left. This will give you the advantage to talk to your boss if he/she normally stays late. It will also give you time to get organize and complete tasks that were put on hold due to priority workloads.

4. Stay away from office politics! If you are known to gossip…stop! You do not want to be blamed for causing mischief within the department.

5. Arrive each morning with a positive attitude. A smile has never hurt anyone.

If you lack confidence, it will show in your day to day activities. Believe in yourself!


Own It!

Gone are the days where blame is placed on others for our lack of knowledge and understanding of how life is “supposed” to be.

We have to own our failures and realize failures are little nuggets of greater things to come.

You are a new product, learning and growing in prosperity each and everyday. There will be both good and bad days, own it, be cognizant of past mistakes. If you need to reposition your mindset, own it and take the necessary steps to ensure a successful career as an entrepreneur, new hire, starting a home business, or current employee being passed over for promotions.

Own it and move forward!

It starts with a little confidence and a lot of believing in yourself!

Applaud Yourself

Not everyone is going to give you an applause for a job well done. Give yourself an applause by celebrating the small steps to victory.

Reposition your mindset to accommodate the promotion you deserve from all your hard work.

Stand up and pat yourself on the back for turning your dream of entrepreneurship into reality.

Give yourself permission to step outside your comfort zone and find your passion.

If you want it bad enough, you will find a way!

7 Strategies to Empowerment

I often struggled with confidence and had an abundance of self-image issues. No one could get through to me because I didn’t want to hear how negative or selfish I was. It was who I was and that was that! My thinking was simply this: I was great at what I did and the company needed someone in my area of expertise. No one can replace me. Right? Wrong…..

I got passed over for promotions because of my “attitude.” The eye opener for me was when I was told I could be replaced in a flash. I was offered anger management classes and told all eyes were on me. In essence, shape up or ship out! Wow! I thought, “Am I really that horrible of an employee?”

If you think you can get by with only “expertise” you are dead wrong.

I help people that are just like I was, down right negative. Changing your mindset can open up doors of opportunity you never though existed. Negativity can destroy your dreams of becoming an entrepreneur, a great friend, spouse, and employer. It prevents you from using your unique abilities to the next level.

How do you change your mindset?

1. Get to the root of your problems. Is it personal? Is it something that someone said or did to you in the past?

2. Recognize you have a negative mindset.

3. Decide you want the best life has to offer.

4. Write down what has been bothering you and toss it in the trash. What doesn’t belong in your life need to be deleted. Put it in the trash!

5. Acknowledge your purpose and godly gifts. What are your goals and aspirations? What have you neglected due to one reason or another?

6. Breathe and know you are human and failing is good thing. In fact fail until you get it right, it will make you an expert in your field.

7. Talk to someone who will listen and not judge.

You are created to do great things in life. Move forward, move often!

If it’s in you, let it out!

For weeks I have been toying around with starting an online coaching business. My passion behind it is sufficient enough to move forward. What’s the problem you say?

Me! I am in my own way. Teaching job interviewing, confidence, and mindset rehabilitation skills at a family shelter has really opened my eyes to a significant need in getting people back to work in a pinch. Whether you are a stay at home mom going back into the workforce or entering the workforce for the first time , caregiver in need of transitioning, or a first timer entering the workforce, there is a need!

There is also a need to rehab the mind from all things negative to the positive aspects of life so you can get that promotion you deserve! No matter how great you are at your job, if your personality sucks, you will be passed over or replaced. There are plenty of people looking to take your position.

My passion is to educate and set people up for success.

If it’s in you, let it out soon. You will never know what you got until you go for it.
