The workplace is in transition, and so are many people with their careers.  More than ever, people are feeling a sense of disengagement at work as they grow frustrated with the uncertainty and lack of long-term stability that surrounds them. Today’s workplace environment is growing worrisome for many because their employers can’t provide them the guaranteed security they seek, while they are expected to do more for less. Managing your career, whether employed or not, has become a full-time responsibility. So many factors play into what motivates and drives someone to ultimately achieve. However, when circumstances force their hand – it begins to take its toll. Motivation starts to wane and people begin to wonder if they will ever reach their desired career destination. They begin to doubt themselves and quickly become awakened to the reality that career management is a journey and only a very few who are equipped to take-on the journey head-on will have the endurance to reach their career goals, dreams and aspirations. This is when a good mentor can inspire you to find happiness and the motivation to succeed in a meaningful and purposeful way when you are showing signs of complacency.
