Never Give Up – Never Arrive! Career Motivation
May 22, 2019
Arriving is Giving Up
Reach a place at the end of a journey or a stage in a journey. WOW. The power of the word arrive is quite transparent. Arriving is to end our journey, whether it’s getting somewhere in life, in our careers or just not wanting to keep going because something is hard, it’s the end of the journey. It’s simply giving up, and we should always keep moving forward no matter the resulting achievements. Careers that open up from earning degrees can sometimes seem like we made it, and there’s no reason to go back to school. We just did that, right!? Yes and no. You achieved a short term goal, but the dream must live in a space that never reaches a destination. It’s the journey that gives it all meaning and going back to school to further explore career opportunities, especially through company tuition reimbursement programs, is a tool that we all should capitalize on.
Why We Have the Desire to Arrive
NegativityNegative influences such as individuals who live within our daily circle can heavily impact our mindsets and our career motivation. When others say things can’t happen, we start to think it’s true that things can’t. But wait, they can, and they do every second all over the world. Why not participate in that success. The hold that negative people can have on others is a very strong force that takes complete control of the potential of many people. Thinking positive and embracing the present moment can help deter those forces, and will help retain focus when applying ourselves to the great things in life.
What Can We DoWe must remove ourselves from toxic personalities, or we quickly become consumed in their beliefs and doubts. It’s easy to deny possibilities because there’s a degree of hard work behind them. Remaining open to learning and discussion with others and analyzing their opinions and ideas can only strengthen our roles as leaders and influences. All through life, many say “I can’t wait to graduate, this took forever” or “I can’t wait to finish so I can relax”. They want to arrive, so the work, the learning will stop. Why? because it’s uncomfortable to always be working towards a goal, yet that mentality should be the complete opposite of how we feel. It’s never easy, but it’s achievable.
Never Give Up, Never Arrive
