5 Reasons People Stay Stuck in Their Careers
Here are five reasons people stay stuck in their careers and what you must avoid to find satisfaction and success in yours:
Stuck Factor #1: Avoid Confronting Change
Get out of your comfort zone and open your eyes to the most obvious opportunities in front of you.
Stuck Factor #2: Resist Growth and Maturity
Do you know someone that has had the same type of job for over 10 years? Some people stop learning new things and resist getting trained in new areas that can make them eligible for the next promotion with the organization.
Stuck Factor #3: Have Trouble Selling Themselves
Some of the smartest people I know don’t know how to sell themselves.
Stuck Factor #4: Associate Themselves with the Wrong People
This is the one thing that impacts people the most. Their inner circle of friends and associates add limited value to their career. Successful people are surrounded by others that want their success to continue. Success breeds success – and you associate yourself with ambitious people, it makes you want to be more ambitious.
Stuck Factor #5: People Don’t Value Time
Times flies when you’re having fun. This idiom is indeed the truth. Time slows down considerably when things are difficult and they are not fun. This is the case for people that are stuck in their careers. Because they are not managing their time effectively and productively, they are wasting and not valuing their time. Getting unstuck requires you to think about ways that make every hour count. Time is our most valuable asset yet people still don’t value it enough.

I’ve been frustrated and stuck many times in my life. I just wanted to throw in the towel and walk away.
