Trying to grow in a company can be really daunting. There’s the matter of peers and family plus the amount of work you have to do plus the quota and there’s also the bloody hr department that seems to act more of a stumbling block than a department. The list goes on. But there are ways to counter this threat.

So fasten your seatbelts, twinkletoes, we’re rolling thunder with the tanks cause it’s time to lock n’ load!

#1. Purpose
What is it that you do at work? Are you a CSR? Are you a data controller? Are you a website developer or multimedia specialist? Are you a sales researcher? All of these things are jobs and if you keep doing your job right, you’ll get the growth you need. Simply put, if you work hard on your job description, you’ll get a smorgasbord of growth. Unless you have a bad boss and in that case, relocate.


#2. Foundations
“Big things have small beginnings” as David said in the 2012 movie Prometheus when he was fiddling and lamenting on the Black Liquid. And that’s basically it. Everyone wants to move up the ranks quickly and easily but that creates a problem: Too many Chiefs but not enough Indians. Do the dirty work first and eventually, you’ll get to the top.


#3. Failure
Now, this might seem counterproductive but it isn’t. Remember Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger”? If you fail, don’t sulk in your misery and sadness. Rather, face it, embrace it and learn from it. If it doesn’t kill you, it’ll make you stronger and that’s true because if it hurt a lot, whether figuratively, objectively or literally, you’ll never forget it and learn a lesson one way or another. Failure isn’t the end of life, it just means a new phase, like a caterpillar turning to a butterfly.
