Zig Zag - ride the wave to career success!

Do you sometimes feel like your career is not going the way you’d like it to go? Although you’d probably prefer that everything would be straightforward from beginning to end, career success rarely turns out that way – for a good reason.

Why? Well, there are no perfectly straight lines in nature – the “straight” route is completely unnatural. Everything is made up of energy and energy travels in waves, meaning that “straight” doesn’t actually exist.

Many people make the mistake of, when their career plans are going a little off course, getting frustrated, upset and wanting to give up. But the journey to success is full of twists and turns, ups, downs, stops and reverses. Just like a safari route which may have to deviate from the beaten track to avoid pot-holes, obstructions and danger zones, you can enjoy your journey while knowing that you’ll be travelling in a zig zag!

Expect to spend a large part of your time correcting and not being frightened to stretch yourself and make mistakes. Success is the result of getting up one more time than you fall down – accept mistakes as part of the journey – they are the feedback we need to correct ourselves.

Continue to take action! Your own Career Safari is all about setting your destination and then acting and correcting in order to get there.
