Complacency is the Silent Killer of Careers

  

Motivational Power Quote

 

Complacency is the Silent Killer of Careers

"Each success only buys

an admission ticket

to a more difficult problem."

Henry Kissinger, 56th US Secretary of State

   

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Complacency is the silent killer of careers  

The fruits of success can lead to complacency. You can see it in professional sports, business and in people's personal lives. We have all seen people who have experienced success and could have taken their career to the next level. But they choose to become complacent and they never became the success that they capable of being.  

Complacency becomes a trap and a silent killer of careers.  

Success creates the opportunity to try again. The more success we achieve the more opportunities we invite.    

Be on the lookout for the silent killer of complacency.  

Don't turn off the energy switch that powers your career efforts; keep your career burning brightly and keep the energy flowing into your career.  

Do not misuse your time on non productive tasks; stay focused on your most productive and success building activities.  

Be aware of taking shortcuts they can take you off track and can lead to failure; maintain your success habits.   

Don't have a sense of entitlement; we earn our results from our efforts. Do your best and the best will come back to you with increased dividends.  

Your next success is an effort away.   

Complacency is the silent killer of careers. Don't allow complacency to kill your career or to block your success.
