Can being too complacent derail your career ? Think about it.

Do the true assets of an organization, its employees, need to undergo development activities to help them grow and develop ?
We need to remember that employees are striving continuously to achieve the organizations objectives and they have their expectations in return. It could be in the shape of increments, bonuses or monetary rewards but research has shown that recognition, appreciation and acknowledgement of contribution work better in motivating them. Further there is nothing more satisfying than acquiring skills that equip one better for the current job as well as future growth.
Being optimistic is one of the most valuable traits that you can develop within yourself and it is a quality that will help you to live a happier life and in fact be a better liked person within your organization and even in your personal life. It is also a very important attitude to maintain when you are going through a tough patch or when you are up to facing difficult challenges.
Of course it is sometimes very difficult to remain optimistic when it feels like the whole world is crashing down around you, but if you can do it then you will be sure to reap the rewards.
If you set high personal standards for yourself those will force a major impact on your personal growth, and will help you to live up to your potential day after day. The reality is that it is really very simple to execute as only you can live upto the standards you set for yourself.
Setting high standards would entail the framing of statements of how you would like to live your life. It should specify the behaviours that you would like to follow and achieve your targets.

Does anything hold you back from what you really want to do in life ? The one thing that may hold you back is the tendency to think too much. We keep on overthinking every little thing to the extent that it keeps getting bigger and bigger in our minds until it reaches a point that we are scared away from doing it.
What impact does this have on our lives ? Of course one needs to think things through but being an overthinker can result in becoming someone who ultimately stands still in life without achieving anything. I used to think a lot and then at some point I realized that it was holding me back and that I was not being able to achieve what I wanted to do. Slowly I learned how to categorize things so that small matters are dealt with automatically. Remember that overthinking is counterproductive to whatever problem you may be trying to solve.
