4 Ways to Jumpstart Your Career with Swagger

share this

Do you sometimes feel like your career has gotten pushed to the bottom of your to-do list because life got in the way? Or do you spend all of your waking hours grinding away on your career goals, only to not hit the mark in your personal life? If you’re nodding your head thinking, “Yes! That’s SO me,” it sounds like your swagger might be out of whack.

If you’re lacking the confidence to know who you are and what you want, other people won’t see your inner fire and brilliance, either. That means you’re missing out on growth opportunities at work that could help you achieve your wildest dreams!

We’re here to help you figure out exactly what’s holding you back so you can get your swagger back on track!

I’ve lost my spark

If you’ve been working hard and know you need to rekindle your flame, you aren’t alone. In December 2020, our 21 Day Harmony Journey study found that 74.7% of employees at all levels reported being at high risk for burnout—but only 35.7% regularly prioritized self care. For executives, caregivers, and those who work in high-stress sectors like healthcare, that rate could be even higher. If you’re overwhelmed, can’t seem to focus, or have lost your motivation, now is the perfect time to turn inward and focus on what lights you up so that you can reignite from within!

Baby, I’m a firework

If you KNOW you’re good at what you do, but have a hard time owning it, you might just have a small spark of swagger. You deliver top-notch work consistently, but have trouble showing off your skills and embracing positive feedback. You keep your head down, do your work, and feel like you’re not always getting the recognition you deserve. It’s your time to show up and be SEEN! Whether that means asking for that promotion, negotiating a higher salary, or leading a bigger team like a boss, if you’ve reached this level that means you’re well on your way to crafting your dream job—and your dream life.

I’m blazing a new trail

If you’re transitioning to a new role or switching careers completely, your swagger might take some time to catch up. While you felt like a boss in your old life, your new position likely requires a different set of skills. Or if you’re swapping out the corporate world for entrepreneurship, it’s a roller coaster ride from the beginning, so it’s no surprise your confidence may have taken a hit. The good news is this new space is the perfect place to rebuild your swagger and fuel the next leg of your journey by creating a more expansive view of Y-O-U.

This girl is on fire

Once your swagger fire is burning, you’ve become unstoppable! You know exactly who you are, what you want, and you’ve made it to your dream role. Your clear vision helps you deliver impressive results, but doubts about self-worth can make it harder for you to own the room. Don’t let imposter syndrome dim your light! Now is a great time to define your authentic leadership style instead of “faking it till you make it.” Stay true to yourself and lead with your story to expand impact and influence!
