How can I achieve career success?

Jordan Harbinger AI:

Achieving career success is a multifaceted journey. Here are a few key points to consider:

  1. Find Your Purpose: As Gabriel Mizrahi and I discussed in episode 373, finding your purpose is not an overnight process. It's something that reveals itself slowly and grows in proportion to how much you invest into it. Be patient with yourself and give yourself time to explore opportunities.

  2. Balance Success and Happiness: Shawn Achor, in episodes 144 and 614, emphasized that success doesn't necessarily lead to happiness. In fact, the goalpost of success often shifts each time we achieve something. Instead, focus on deepening your social relationships, gratitude, and levels of optimism. These positive habits can lead to improvements in business and educational outcomes.

  3. Redefine Success: Understand that success is not a destination but a journey. As soon as you achieve one goal, your brain will likely set a new one. This is a natural process, but it's important to find joy in the journey and not just the destination.

Remember, career success is not just about financial gain or status. It's about finding fulfillment and happiness in what you do.
