Ready to Get Off the Wheel, Yet?

Ok, it seems to be well known that a career path in Corporate can be extremely frustrating and have you running around chasing your tail.

You might even feel like you’re a hamster on a wheel.

The evidence of corporate career burnout sentiment is so widespread that it seems to show up everywhere like on The Office (TV), Dilbert (print media) and lots of movies like The Company Men and Bad Boss.

After awhile it can start to make work on Monday seem like a total drag.

Maybe you’re even starting to feel a bit burned out yourself and considering making the leap out of Corporate.

But Your Dream can come True at Corporate

It’s never perfect but when you take a deeper dive, you might discover that your Corporate gig may not be as bad as you think.

In fact, it might even represent a golden opportunity for you!

By looking at your corporate career through a different lens, you’ll find it easier and more obvious to pursue your passion, make an impact, and do work you love.

Here are the 3 Ways that Your Corporate Career is a Hidden Gem

1.) Bigger Impact in the World – You don’t have to launch a non-profit from scratch to start changing the world. If you do, it’s going to take lots of time and money.

So why not start where you are now?

Corporate organizations have well-oiled channels to make large offers to the world.

You can develop new products for the masses, influence design, purchasing practices, projects, to drive benefit for the world on a large level.

Many have amazing global reach and so why not start exploring how you can contribute with what inspires you?

2.) Make a Difference in the Lives of Co-workers – Remember not to overlook all the people that work at Corporate with you (and have been doing so for years).

Companies have huge networks of people that they have interest in developing and growing (in fact their probably crying out for it).

You can contribute to this development.

Don’t underestimate the power of impacting the lives of the people you work with.

If you weren’t at Corporate, you wouldn’t have the opportunity to build trust and have their ear.  (Otherwise, you’re just another 3rd party knocking on the door).

3.) Personal Growth – Bring on the red tape!

In Corporate, you learn how to navigate and be successful within a bureaucratic environment.

Even if you’re planning on being self-employed one day, there are always going to be hurdles to jump over, rules to follow, and organizations to deal with.

Learning how to get through it and even use it to your advantage is all stuff that will help you along the way.

Treasure Where You’re Standing

So before you find yourself complaining about life in Corporate, try looking at these amazing opportunities you might be missing right under your nose.

    Hi,
    This may be slightly ‘alternative’ in terms of professional approach, and, I happily accept that. However, I believe ‘working in corporate’ and what you receive from it, are different things.
    Working in Corporate gives you security (to a degree!)
    It insists you give your life to ‘the company’ for money.
    It doesn’t guarantee that it will do this in perpetuity ie provide you with a living.
    If you disagree with someone senior ( even if they are suffering from senility) you are out.
    You can never change what you earn without the say so of someone else!
    You give your life to the company, gift your time; the only thing you really own, you give to someone else.
    How happy do you feel now?
    I have a friend in corporate life that earns £250.000.00 per MONTH!
    He never sees his family, apart from the odd birthday and weekend. His wife thinks he’s a prick and his children think he must be a bank manager because that’s where the money comes from!
    Corporate life is a beating to nowhere!
    Corporate life is awful. I have another client that lost his position due to cuts and now has Alzheimer’s! He saved all his life and now doesn’t know his own wife or children!
    Stop conforming, please, it’s destroying our society.
