Here are some very powerful thoughts on your career.


I have seen in my life too many persons unhappy with their career, and it seems mostly driven by the way they think and their expectations on life, their careers, fulfillment of their dreams, and the number of challenges they think the should (or should not) face.

Professional growth requires discomfort.
Almost every job has a trade off. You’ll probably never get everything you want in one place.
Achieving long-term career goals requires sustained effort and deliberate action. It’s no accident or coincidence.

Yes, you may have easier moments in your career, and some others may have some “aligned stars” and chances on their path.  You do too, just like they also have challenges.  It is how we react to challenges that matter.  It is also important to react to success and chances with humility, and use these opportunities as tools to reach higher, not just to get confortable.

Success always begin at the end of your comfort zone.
