Invite change:

Being comfy is always good but who knows you may be even more comfy with the change that takes place. So be open and embrace change. Unless you accept change there is no personal and professional turn around.

Gear up for surprises:

Life is full of surprises and so is the career. Confirming your place in some MNC and settling in your favorite profession does not mean everything is set for a safer journey. Who knows you may be kicked out the very next day and when this happens what you will do. Will you panic and increase your blood pressures. No, you can’t do this. What all you can do is to accept the eventuality and respect the surprise. You always have some other door open when one is closed.

Take every turn as a new challenge:

Turns and twists are always there to be part and parcel of everyone’s professional life.  So you are no exclusion to it. Though we may not like them we have to notice and face them. Respect them and honor them so that you are ready to take the charge. Panicking will only make life worrying. If turns have their own surprises for you give the turns your way of turns. No human has ever been successful without challenges and emergencies.

Your experience in some field along with skills relevant to nearing fields can trigger more options and more career safety. Be a multitasker.
