Overcome Career Disappointment


Overcome Career DisappointmentWant to overcome career disappointment?  You may have wanted more from your career and feel that your career path is out of your control. When your career doesn’t meet your hopes and dreams, you will naturally feel disappointed.

We feel disappointed when we want something and no longer believe that we can have it. When you are disappointed, you feel let down, sad, disillusioned, hopeless, and defeated.

Resolve Career Disappointment

To understand and resolve these feelings, you can use Optimal Thinking, the language of your best self. Start by asking the best questions to invite the best solutions:

  • Do I have realistic expectations about my career?
  • Is there a possibility that I could still achieve what I want?
  • What can this situation teach me so that I can achieve what I want in the future?
  • What is my most important goal right now?
  • What are the most empowering actions I can take toward this goal?
  • What’s the best action I can take right now?

Minimize your feelings of disappointment and helplessness:

  • Accept what is out of your control
  • Optimize what is within your control

We understand that this is easier said than done.

Keep in mind that your main job in this world is to be your best self.  Your career, family and relationships are vehicles to enable you to be your very best.

When you commit to doing your best regardless of the circumstances, you are on the optimal track. You can set and achieve goals that focus your energy on its greatest and best use.

    Covid-19 had done me in. Lost my 20-year job and my income. This article and your 100 day audio program saved me. Thanks a million.

  2. Ken B says:

    I hit 60 recently and was laid off after 11 years as the CMO at the same company. I felt like I was punched in the gut for weeks. I’ve been with an outplacement company but have been unmotivated. These questions are really helpful. I’ll be calling you to get some private coaching. You make a lot of sense.

  3. Clarissa says:

    I want to explore possibility of exploring my son’s problem. He is a licensed dialysis technician but he couldn’t land a job. For some reason – he couldnt pass any job interviews and he is now 25 years old. Would you be able to assess and help him. Btw – he is also hooked with video games and I am at a loss- I am hoping u would have some affordable program that is available:

    Thank u much
