But I worked hard to be here! / by Marc Purslow

Few people climb to the peak of a mountain to remain there, and few come back down the mountain and say it was a waste of time because they’re back where they started. We understand that the point of the climb is the hike, the view, and the satisfaction of getting to the top. The experience makes us better, and we know that once we’ve reached our goal, we can move on to something else that excites us. So why don’t we take the same approach to our careers? Many people remain at a job simply because they worked hard to get it, whether they still want to be there or not. When we continue to do something we aren’t passionate about out of habit or fear of the unknown, we become unmotivated, frustrated, and even depressed. When this is the case, it’s time to take a leap and go climb another mountain.
