Traditionally, many see wealth and stability as key drivers of a successful career, but in today’s context, there are other determinants to it as well. If you often question whether you have a successful career, it is important to first ask yourself what constitutes a “successful career” in your opinion.
Author and Career Coach, Christie Dao, believes that the career journey that highlights “Inclusion”, “Influence” and “Impact” is what a successful career entails. Inclusion is the act of acquiring technical skills that your job requires, Influence is the ability to set directions and make changes with the support network and relationships you have, while Impact is a vision of how we make the world a better place.
This goes hand-in-hand with a Forbes article written by a former Fortune 500 Human Resources Senior Vice President, who shares that it is the intangibles that contribute to one’s success – such as knowing what you bring to employers and/or clients that help them become successful, having the confidence to speak up, and having a vision for your own life and taking control of it.
While the notion of success is no longer tied to how much you can make, there is no denying that it is still important to set aside some funds for investments, so that you can better plan and achieve your life goals faster with assurance and ease. This can be done through Flexi Goal by Great Eastern, a regular premium endowment insurance plan that offers high potential returns and flexible premium payment options, and prepares you for your desired home upgrade, tertiary education for your children, or a well-deserved golden retirement.
