Do you have aspirations to climb the career ladder?
Discover how to gain an unfair advantage in the workplace and win that next promotion…
Focus on the Right Things
When it comes to climbing the career ladder, earning that pay rise, or gaining that promotion, it all comes down to what you focus on. Focusing on making optimal decisions and taking the right actions at the right time makes all the difference.
Before reading on I just wanted to introduce myself…
Before you read on, I think it’s important that I introduced myself. My name is Adam Sicinski. I’m a qualified life coach residing in Australia. I guess in some people’s eyes I’m also somewhat of a “professional” mind mapper; but the jury’s still out as to whether or not mind mapping is an actual profession.
I’ve personally created each mind map that is part of the Career Success bundle. Each mind map has been built upon my life coaching work with clients and upon my personal research and experience. In fact, every map has been meticulously pieced together in the hope that it provides you with the small nuggets of gold you need to help give you the edge you need to climb the career ladder. There’s no need to read an endless amount of books when a simple reference poster provides you with a quick overview of the key areas that are of utmost importance to help move you in the right direction.
Before you invest in anything I think it’s important you have the necessary support you need. I want to let you know that I’m here to help guide along this journey. I’m just an email away and I will do my very best to provide you with the support you need to work through each self-growth map most effectively.
But before we even get that far you probably want to know what’s included in the Career Success bundle. Well, I guess I won’t stop you. Read on, and I hope to connect with you on the other side.
Why you will never get a promotion…
It’s interesting to note that no matter how hard some people work and no matter how much loyalty they show their employer over many years, that this does not guarantee a significant pay rise or promotion?
Many people are hoping for a pay rise, and keeping their fingers crossed that they will get that promotion, however for many people these dreams never seem to materialize. What these people probably don’t realize is that they are going about things the wrong way; and as a result they will continue to struggle while failing time and again to make their way up the career ladder.
Are you one of these people? Do you feel somewhat under-appreciated or under-valued as an employee? Do you feel as though you’re employer just doesn’t take you seriously or doesn’t see the effort you are putting in to your work? Or maybe you feel somewhat overworked, stressed and simply struggling to make a name for yourself within your company? Does this sound like the story of your life?
Value isn’t measured by time but by FOCUS!
Many people who work for someone else incorrectly assume that the longer they stay with an organization the more valuable they will become to the company and therefore the more likely they are to be promoted and given that much needed pay rise. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
There are a plentiful of examples of people who have been with an organization for many years and have barely scratched the surface of a promotion. In fact, you probably know many of these people, maybe even intimately.
The main reason why people fail to make their way up the career ladder comes down to how they focus their mind on themselves within the workplace. People simply tend to focus on the wrong things in the wrong way. They fail to build enough value within themselves to deserve to win that promotion.
Life just doesn’t seem fair!
Most of my adult life I’ve either worked for myself or with a business partner. I therefore don’t have first-hand experience working for a large corporation. However, over this time I have spoken to numerous people through my life coaching work about their careers and the companies they worked for. These are normal ordinary individuals who are seeking to get more out of life.
One theme that has cropped up time and again during these coaching sessions is that “life just doesn’t seem fair”.
My clients would often tell me stories about their struggles at work. It would seem as though they were doing all the right things, but for one reason or another they would always fail to win that promotion, while others who had apparently been working there for only a brief period of time would get promoted ahead of them. Why in the world was this happening? Life just didn’t seem fair…
Your focus determines your results…
Talking with my coaching clients I soon realized that they were simply focusing and prioritizing their work responsibilities and activities in a less than optimal way; which worked against them in the long-run.
Instead of focusing on enhancing their personal value, skills and level of effectiveness and efficiency, they were instead focused on going about things in the same way day-to-day with little deviation from the norm. In other words, they were doing what was necessary and required, but doing little else that would help separate them from the crowd.
They didn’t take risks, lacked creative initiative, and failed to apply themselves to take the necessary steps to enhance their value within the organization. To put it simply, they didn’t make any effort to stand-out from the crowd and increase their personal value.
Become the CEO of your own company
Even though you’re working for someone else, you must manage your professional life as though you’re the CEO of your own company. This shift in perspective will change how you approach your work, responsibilities and the challenges that are thrown your way.
A CEO paints the bigger picture for the company moving forward. They fully understand that for this vision to come to fruition that the company must have the necessary resources, tools, business relationships and skills in place to make this vision a reality. They realize that everything they do is paramount and critical to the long-term success of their vision, and as a result they are very specific and remain focused on the most important areas that add the greatest value to the company’s long-term vision.
The series of mind maps that you will find below will show you the steps you must take that will help you win that promotion and climb the career ladder. They will help you focus on the right things, in the right way, at the right time. Furthermore, they will show you how to grow your value — you simply need to develop the right skills, acquire the necessary resources, utilize the most appropriate tools, and take the creative initiative to grow your career with purpose.
The value of using mind maps
These career success strategies, techniques, and guidelines are presented within a mind map format because of its simplicity and ease of use.
Each mind map is built upon a specific topic that explores how to advance your career and add more value to your company.

Moreover, many of these mind maps also present you with key questions that you can ask yourself to help guide your thinking while making key career decisions.
