How to Build a Strong Foundation for Your Career


Setting, keeping, and accomplishing personal and professional goals can be a daunting undertaking. Before you set long term, ambitious goals, you must be sure that the foundation of your career is strong and sturdy enough to handle whatever comes your way. Here are three ways to build a strong foundation for exceeding your ambitions throughout your career.

1. Take ownership to stay relevant  

Most people become irrelevant in their careers because they don’t pay attention to what makes them unique and sets them apart from others. This is why it is essential that you take ownership of your career by doing everything possible to outwork and outsmart everyone else. This will require you to challenge the status quo and become more mindful about whom you associate yourself with. Taking ownership like this requires action. The action you take in pursuit of being relevant may often be met with failure, envy, or misunderstanding. But you must persevere to keep your competitive advantage and distinctive qualities driving your career forward toward relevancy.

2. Use diversity of thought to create constructive disruption

To exceed your goals, you may have to choose unconventional ways to get to your desired end game. This is where to use your ability to connect what appears to be unrelated into a well thought-out cohesive plan. Embrace diversity of thought and be a constructive disruptor. Don’t allow people to confuse diversity of thought as a form of disorganized thinking. It is only disorganized to those that have grown complacent and don’t challenge the norm. You can’t be aspirational without being a constructive disruptor.

3. Have the wisdom to prevail when faced with adversity

How you respond when faced with adversity is what defines your ability to achieve your goals. The key to overcoming adverse circumstances is a matter of focus. Zoom in on it and you will see no opportunity. Zoom out and you will see it in the full context of all else that surrounds you—and many new opportunities will come into view. Adversity is a matter of perspective. It’s about tapping your wisdom to make the right decisions, keep the right attitude, and deal with complex circumstances and diversity of thought. Successful people have mastered the ability to think on their feet by allowing their wisdom to prevail during times of uncertainty.

When you have the courage to do these three things, you define the course that will help you accomplish your goals. Building a strong career foundation will translate into any job or career you take on, allowing you to reach and exceed your goals both personally and professionally.
