Very often I have clients who feel as though they are not going anywhere in their business life. They feel stagnant.
Being a team player goes a long way when the team player has a positive outlook. Each day is filled with stress and problems. Show your peers and superiors a positive attitude and initiate ideas to help problem solve and reduce stress. Do not be discouraged if it does not work. If you are in a position to go to your superiors for more responsibility, go for it. Volunteer for new assignments or ask if anyone needs help. It might lead to a different position within your company.
