Mid Career Women: 5 Strategies to Propel Your Career to the Next Level

Life as a mid-career woman can be both challenging and rewarding. It's a time when you have gained valuable experience and wisdom, but you may also feel stuck or unsure about the next steps in your career. As a life strategist and leadership coach I observe this as I work with the many women I work with.  Some of them feel so stuck that they are ready to throw in the "Proverbial towel", as such, I thought it useful to share with you five key things that can propel your career forward and help you achieve the success you deserve.

Pain Pushes, but Vision Pulls

In life and your career, it's important to remember that pain pushes you to make changes, but it's your vision that pulls you toward your goals. Embrace the challenges and setbacks you face as opportunities for growth and learning. Use them as fuel to propel you forward toward your vision of success.

Accept That Life Will Suck Sometimes

It's essential to accept that life is not always smooth sailing. There will be tough times, setbacks, and failures along the way. Instead of letting these moments discourage you, use them as opportunities to learn, grow, and become stronger. Embrace the "sucky" moments as part of the journey towards your goals.

Attach Your Actions to a Significant Why

To truly propel your career forward, you need to attach your actions to a why that is significant to you. Understand your purpose, your values, and what drives you. When you align your actions with a meaningful why, you will find the motivation and determination to overcome any obstacles that come your way.

Optimize Your Environment

Creating an environment that supports your goals is crucial. Assess your workspace, habits, and routines. Ensure that they align with the life you want to live and the career you aspire to have. Eliminate distractions and create a space that nurtures your growth and development.  A conducive environment fosters productivity, creativity, and overall well-being, propelling you toward success.

Surround Yourself with Believers

The people you surround yourself with have a significant impact on your mindset and your success. Surround yourself with individuals who believe in what you are trying to achieve. Seek out mentors, peers, and friends who support your goals and aspirations. Their belief in you will fuel your confidence and drive you towards success.

By embracing these five key principles, you can propel your career as a mid-career woman to new heights. Remember, challenges are opportunities in disguise, and setbacks are stepping stones to success. Keep your vision clear, your why significant, and your environment supportive. Surround yourself with believers who uplift and inspire you. You have the power to create the career and life you desire. Reach out to me for further support.
