Personal Career: What Ought to Happen Vs What Happens

Personal Career Expectations Vs Reality


Personal Career Expectations Vs Reality

When you’re here, you’re definitely looking for some entertainment. It is because the question of expectations and reality in personal career is nothing new. You have been exposed to similar content may be in the form of pictures, videos and other media. But now, let’s look at a different presentation of this ball game. Are you ready to be entertained? Here you go:

1. Success

The first expectation is that success comes with individual development. As you develop in life, you hope that success will come naturally. In fact, many people believe they are successful just because they have aged.

In reality, these people might not possess the minimum level of self awareness. They may even continue to remain unaware of themselves despite their advancing age. Such perceptions should be changed forever. As a human being, you must strive for a better personal career accompanied by real success.

2. Conscious, Alert And Careful Attitude

Most businessmen are of the opinion that they are always conscious about personal business requirements. Simultaneously, they maintain carefulness in every business activity.

If we see the reality, these rich people do not even care about themselves, let alone their personal business. They are also negligent about innovation, technology and motivation. They hardly know anything about maintaining the right attitude or exhibiting a proper code of conduct. Above all, they lack a basic understanding of individual development. If you fall into this category, make sure to improve on these lines and become a successful business person in true terms. 

3. Pragmatic Nature

With time, people also expect to become practical in life. While in school, they expect to be practical and matured in college. Without enhancing their self awareness in college life, they look forward to their job prospects. Again, when they enter into the industry, they expect to be counted among the most pragmatic individuals. However, the lack of individual development initiatives prevents them from practical reality. Due to this, they tend to develop wrong perceptions about themselves. Although they may succeed in their personal career in terms of money, status and power, yet they remain impractical throughout their lives.

4. Flexibility And Dynamism

Sadly and unfortunately, these two parameters never become the reality. Now there are two reasons behind it- one, it remains in the expectation category for most people; and two, when an individual becomes flexible, there is a natural need to pursue higher levels of flexibility and dynamism. Here, self awareness level becomes highly subjective and you may also say, complex. If you are flexible, you have higher chances of exploring diverse opportunities in your personal career. Dynamism allows you to think differently, which further adds to your flexibility. Ideally, these two terminologies should go hand-in-hand for maximum individual development.   

5. Leadership Quality

That’s the ultimate example of the expectation-reality battle. In personal business, the higher authority and management people expect to reach leadership positions in a short span of time. Besides them, every employee in the organisation tends to behave like leaders. They expect that they are smart enough to run an organisation.

The reality is something different. Most of the leading aspirants lack adequate self awareness about the environment. Even the management people sometimes behave amateurs. Resultant, they are unable to realize their hopes and aspirations. In order to manage a personal business, one has to be a true and wise leader so as to make proper decisions at the right time. Only then individuals can succeed in life, remain alert and conscious, become practical and can gradually move towards leadership positions.
