Ep #75: How Tolerating Your Own Bad Behaviors is Holding You Back From Your Next Promotion

Whenever someone reaches out to me for help, it usually goes something like this:

They’re swamped, they’re overwhelmed, and they feel completely stuck in their careers.

And when I ask them why they think this is happening, they usually say something like this:

They don’t have:

– the right projects…

– the right boss…

– or they’re not working for the right organization.

As a result, landing a promotion feels completely out of their reach.

Do you notice a trend here?

These are external factors.

They are things that are happening to them.

But what if instead of placing all the blame on the things happening around us, we looked inward and considered that perhaps we are being our own worst enemy?

And what if this realization was…good news?

Because, if you are the problem, you are also the solution.

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’ll show you how tolerating bad behaviors from yourself is holding you back from advancing your career.

What You'll Learn:

  • Why externalizing your problems makes it harder to tackle them
