One of the oldest bits of career-related wisdom says that if a professional works hard and achieves success, then he or she will find happiness. At Innovision Dynamics, we understand just the opposite to be true. Those who are happy in their work are most likely to succeed in their careers. In other words, happiness comes before success – not after.
This is really just another way of saying that attitude is one of the most important tools we have to advance our Innovision Dynamics careers. After all, who is most likely to receive positive attention from managers – an individual who seems to be unhappy in his or her work, and can’t wait to leave every day, or one who comes into the office with a smile and a spring in his or her step?
If you feel like you’ve lost that loving feeling for your vocation, there are a couple of steps you can take to become happy in your work again. First, communication is key. Specifically, talk to your supervisors and let them know what parts of your position you enjoy most and why. This will help to remind you what you enjoy about your day, and make it likelier that your enthusiasm will be noticed.
Then, find ways to get more involved with colleagues. Building relationships with peers makes the workplace a more satisfying emotional experience. Also, we encourage strong connections with team leaders. They’ll often be able to provide the direction and support that someone who has lost their way needs.
Rather than success, we encourage brand ambassadors to chase happiness. Accomplishment will inevitably result. For more career wisdom, follow Innovision Dynamics on Facebook.
