How to Avoid the Pitfalls of a Robotic Career Reputation

It really baffles me how many people today have strikingly similar career reputations despite their wide array of personalities. And if only they would learn to tap into their divergent personalities, then the prospects of prosperity through enterprising and job creation would be enormous. However despite the ever growing potential for career niche expansion, many still stick to well known and highly flooded career paths as they scramble for the limited opportunities available, so not to succumb to their robotic career.

What are the Pitfalls of a Robotic Career Reputation?

Fear of the unknown is the main factor that restricts people to robotic career reputations since many loathe the discomfort of having to venture into uncharted career territories. Moreover, stiff competition experienced in job markets today can largely be attributed to the monotony of robotic perceptions, attitudes and beliefs such as:

  • Having the mob mentality of career success instead of curving out unique paths
  • Adapting to survival instead of prosperity as a key theme in life
  • Being unnecessarily compliant by accepting any career opportunity that comes by without necessary discernment
  • Getting too attached to an unfulfilling career path to a point where it gets difficult to call it quits despite obvious signs.
  • Lacking the guts to get into unfamiliar ground to maximize on your potential.
  • Being too busy to consult acquaintances about better career opportunities.
  • Solely focusing on initial academic credentials when analyzing future career prospects.
  • Sticking to outdated and obsolete career formalities instead of adapting to the ever-changing job market dynamics.
  • Subjecting your dreams and aspirations to the limits of people’s expectations.

How then do we Avoid the Pitfalls of a Robotic Career Reputation?

Being different is not a walk in the park. In fact, if the robotic majority are frustrated and you’re prospering in a different direction, then you shouldn’t be surprised when you encounter a few jealous faces.

But that shouldn’t stop you from ripping maximum benefits from your unique and smart decisions which can’t be made unless you:

#1 Acclimatise yourself to Meaningful and Rewarding Risk Taking
The richest and most prosperous people on earth each have a unique story to tell. In fact, you’ll notice that on many occasions, their career decisions were discredited by people who followed the usual robotic career paths. But now, tables have turned and their risk appetite for rejection and doing things differently is praised by the very people that discredited them.

#2 Exterminate All Limiting Fears and Beliefs
Rules and regulations of life are established to maintain order. And when it comes to career development, these rules are usually relevant while we’re in school. However, the career environment is ruled by fearless entrepreneurs that never tire in finding new opportunities to invest in. Unfortunately, many don’t picture themselves that way. Instead, it’s mainly about following the robotic rules to stay safe. But as the saying goes, no pain, no gain.

#3 Be firm a Decisive Go getter
Many careerists still suffer from plausible deniability of the fact that careers are no longer limited to employment. And at times, it will require for you to be unemployed to succeed in life. From a distance, employment always seems to be the winning game but in reality, employment status is indifferent. Because whether employed or unemployed, it all boils down to whether you’re achieving WHAT YOU WANT in life. And it’s better to be an unemployed and decisive entrepreneur than an employed robotic character that’s just getting by in life.

From what we’ve discussed above, it seems that most robotic career reputations largely revolve around assurances. For instance, the guarantee by higher education curricula that if I do this and that then success is guaranteed. But such a limited approach only serves to flood job markets with robotic career reputations that choke on the potential of every individual to discover their own unique set of indispensable skills. As Michael Dell once put it, "You don’t have to be a genius or a visionary or even a college graduate to be successful. You just need a framework and a dream."
