Of course, anyone can thrive in any job as long as they are committed to working it out. You necessarily do not have to be passionate about your job.

However, everybody starts off being an entry level employee. Some progress into seasoned experts in the field, some wither off in the cubicles while others make career changes.

Regardless, climbing the career ladder requires you to hone some new skills, improve existing skills and drop the not-so-useful ones.

But, with your career goals snowballing on your palms, it’s your responsibility to identify the skills requisite for advancement. If you can’t identify and make efforts to hone those skills, you’re probably on the wrong job and should consider a career change.

Reach out to mentors and idols for counsel. Watch what they do and understand why/how they do them.

Observe, learn, grow!
