Is Your Job a Dead End? Or a Launchpad for Success?

If life is a game, going to work is a game where you can see the end at a glance and there will be no greater breakthroughs.

In starting a business or anything else, there will be successes and failures, but because it is full of challenges, flexible, and meaningful, it allows us to iterate.

Most of the things you do at work can be accomplished with simple hard work. Without flexibility, such things will not reach a high level. But its biggest advantage is “certainty”.

Only following certainty without flexibility is actually a very good result to become an ordinary person, but life itself is full of uncertainties, and the certainty of going to work is not enough to cope with the uncertainty of life.

Many people have more or less experience in the workplace before starting a business, but not everyone who has experienced the workplace can successfully start a business.

So today, let’s talk together about what exactly do we want to gain during those years in the workplace?

01. You want to be the “king of the workplace” and don’t care about the feelings of your colleagues

Have you noticed that some people are very popular in the workplace, but their work is tepid and it is difficult to make breakthroughs.


Because you consider your colleagues in everything, you are afraid that if you stand out too much, you will not fit in with the crowd. When others stand out, the boss will only see others, not you. Such a person is not a threat to others, and the boss cannot see him. Naturally, his colleagues like him and his work is average.

But looking back at those real “workplace kings”, they say: Don’t mind the feelings of your colleagues.

If you don’t dare to get involved in the company, you will be involved by others. The feelings of our colleagues are really not important. If we want to break through quickly in the workplace, break through the situation quickly, and get good opportunities, we must be proactive and focus on looking up.

For example, when everyone holds a project meeting together, the boss asks everyone who can do it. Don’t wait for the boss to assign it. Take the initiative to fight for it. This is your opportunity.

Don’t worry about not doing well, your proactive attitude will make your boss satisfied with you. If you don’t know the rest, ask for advice and practice, and your abilities will become better and better.

The more proactive you are, the better and better you will do. Even if your boss doesn’t want to promote you, you will have high-paying and high-level positions. As for others, when you have the ability and the first pot of gold, you may become your own boss. They are still in their original positions. You will not even interact with each other. Do you still care about their feelings?

Also, when you want to care about your colleagues’ feelings, ask yourself two questions:

(1) Who pays you?

It’s the boss.

(2) Who can give you a chance?

Also the boss.

Therefore, the boss’s needs are the focus. It is enough to let the boss see you, value you, and be satisfied with you. Others are not important. And as long as you do things in a highly consistent manner with your boss’s interests, you will definitely be like a “helicopter” and get promoted and raised quickly.

02. Be your own boss and treat the workplace as an “entrepreneurial platform”

In fact, after adults enter the society, there are only two opportunities that can really change their lives. One is in the workplace, and the other is to start an independent business.

But most ordinary people either don’t have money, courage, or resources, so they don’t dare to start a business. Then if you don’t seize the workplace, what possibilities will there be in this life?

If you can only passively be a wage earner forever and think about “working as a monk and hitting the clock every day,” then your salary and your wallet will be equally perfunctory to you.

The company will still run without you, but you will lose everything without your salary. Therefore, smart people in the workplace never limit their vision to “how much money will they get for doing this job”.

They will regard the workplace as their “entrepreneurial platform”. Specifically, they can consider the following aspects:

Innovation and creativity.

In the workplace, you can stand out by offering innovative ideas and creativity. Think about how to improve and enhance work processes, products or services, propose new solutions, and verify the feasibility of innovative ideas with the goal of “creating value for the company”.

Take initiative and take responsibility.

Take the initiative to take responsibility and go beyond the scope of work, actively participate in projects or teams, provide additional help and support, and demonstrate leadership and teamwork skills.

Learning and development.

Take advantage of job opportunities to learn new skills and knowledge and continuously improve yourself. Take the initiative to find learning opportunities for projects or tasks, participate in training and development programs, and cooperate with leaders or colleagues to learn from their professional knowledge and experience.

Expand your network.

The workplace is a great opportunity to expand your network. By participating in industry events, joining professional organizations, establishing cooperative relationships, etc., you can establish connections with professionals in the industry and expand your social network. These connections may provide support and opportunities for future entrepreneurship.

Self-promotion and brand building.

Actively self-promote and brand yourself. Pay attention to your personal brand image, demonstrate your professionalism and value, and build your personal reputation and recognition.

Pursue passion and purpose.

Pursue your passions and goals in the workplace, find work that matches your interests and values, and work hard to achieve your career goals. Because using the workplace as a platform for entrepreneurship requires a certain amount of creativity, initiative and determination.

At the same time, we need to be consistent with the company’s goals and interests, abide by the company’s rules and values, and maintain a good workplace reputation and cooperative relationship in the future.

03. You need a boss who can arrange things for you. He is your sure “upward resource”

People need opportunities to succeed, and you have to take advantage of them.

For workers, what is the outlet?

The boss is your feng shui, the company is your outlet, and the industry is your biggest opportunity.

Therefore, in the workplace, don’t think that “being a monk ringing the bell” or “fishing in troubled waters” is a good thing, because the company will be fine if you don’t have you, and in the end only you will disappear.

When you can realize that your boss is your “noble person”, opportunities are already waving to you. So how should we grasp the “elegant” boss?

1. Build positive and positive relationships.

It is very important to establish a positive communication and cooperative relationship with your boss. Strive to build trusting and friendly working relationships, demonstrate your professionalism and value, and maintain good communication and cooperation with your boss. Only then will your boss appreciate you and be willing to take the initiative to help you grow.

2. Actively seek feedback and guidance.

In the workplace, no one is obligated to “put food in your mouth.” If you want better, you must strive for it yourself. Actively seeking feedback and guidance from your boss can help you understand your strengths and areas for improvement. Be open to feedback and don’t view it as criticism, but as an opportunity to grow and develop.

3. Learn to observe leadership styles.

Take the initiative to observe your boss’s leadership style and way of doing things, and learn from them to get along with your leaders and understand their expectations and priorities. This will help you better adapt and work together, while also preparing you for future leadership roles.

4. Strive for more opportunities and responsibilities.

Actively strive for more opportunities and responsibilities, and demonstrate your talents and abilities. Take the initiative to participate in projects or make suggestions, express your wishes and abilities to your boss, and strive for more growth and development opportunities.

5. Seek leadership support.

If you have entrepreneurial ideas or ambitions, it’s helpful to seek support and guidance from your leaders along the way. They will likely provide you with valuable advice, resources, and connections in the future to help you succeed in your entrepreneurial journey.

6. Take advantage of evaluation and promotion opportunities.

When the company conducts evaluations or promotions, actively participate in the evaluation and provide required materials. Discuss your career plans with your boss, express your goals and aspirations, and seek support and guidance to achieve them.

We must remember that the relationship with the boss is based on mutual respect and mutual benefit. Try to communicate with your boss at the right time and occasion, and make the most of their opportunities as upward resources to achieve personal and professional success.


In the workplace, the younger you are, the more you have to think long-term. It is always better to take the initiative to endure hardship than to be passively beaten.

Because “if you are young and don’t endure hardship, you will only be sad when you get old.”

In the workplace, you must learn to stand out. The key is to seize every opportunity to improve your abilities. Always focus on working and making money. You are just selling your labor and time cheaply, and it will be a matter of time before you are eliminated from the market.

Those who can really get ahead are those who are constantly working on their own thinking and abilities. It is not easy to do, but it is very effective.

The stronger your ability, the smaller the chance of being eliminated by market selection. Learn to take the initiative in your own life, so that you will not always passively accept the whips that life whips at you. Regardless of whether I choose to start a business after leaving the workplace, I firmly believe that capable people will never die of hunger.

In the future, companies may also undergo new reforms in their employment models. There will no longer be corporate entities and cloud offices. At this time, the boss only needs to pay for your abilities. If you want to fish in troubled waters, the water will be gone. Where can you find the fish?
