The Entrepreneur’s Source Reviews: Why we need to Wake-Up and Turn Off Your Autopilot Controls 

How many of us would like to steer our own ships? Pretty much everyone, right? Yet, it’s amazing how many of us are missing opportunities. Too many of us continue to stay on autopilot when it comes to our careers. We need to ask ourselves what is keeping us from making a commitment to being self-sufficient and stop focusing on what we need to do to just to stay afloat.

Here is your wake-up call.

Stop settling for the ‘New Normal’ and ask yourself: Are  you trapped in the Battered Career Syndrome®?

Here are 6 signs you may be trapped. Do you:

  • Feel professionally depleted and trapped?
  • Work harder for less money and little thanks?
  • Feel disconnected from your dreams or are you apathetic to change?
  • Resent the loss of precious time with family and friends due to longer hours or traveling for your job?
  • Have a permanent feeling of uneasiness due to today’s corporate “profit above all” culture?
  • Think about changing your career on a daily basis?

“So many individuals suffering from the Battered Career Syndrome® fail to gain traction in their career and seldom reach their goals. Many are walking around in a daze, bouncing from one job to another. Feeling beaten and uncertain about what will come next. Many of them have dreams and aspirations but lack a strategy on how to close the gap between where they are now and where they want to be. For that to change, a fundamental shift must take place in the way they think about their careers and investments says Terry Powell, founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source®.

What if you focused on what you have to gain as opposed to what you have to lose? What if you found out that there was a career option that can lead to a more fulfilling life?
