When working your way up the career ladder, it’s pretty common to start all the way at the bottom. Sometimes, however, when you are at the bottom, you will find that it’s pretty hard to lift your head high enough to be seen by opportunity, so you remain at the bottom.
Plus, the outlook from the bottom isn’t too bright, and it kills motivation and ambition. This is what it means to be stuck in a rut. Without motivation and ambition, you will never achieve success.
Don’t develop the habit of staying put; instead, develop the habit of looking for ways to improve your situation.
Keep your head high for opportunities.
Even if you’re stuck at the bottom of the career ladder, an opportunity will eventually come by. Make sure you’re on the lookout for it, and grab it before it slips by.
