I want a raise. A new title. Then I’ll really step up and lead the department/company.
I look at that as being in the wrong order, just as this is:
I want to get married. Have children. Then we can learn if we can fall in love and have a great life.
I love ambitious people, people with dreams. But in business, if you want the new title and trappings, become the person you want to be first. Be the leader. Do the right things. See how it feels. See if it’s really you. If you’re energized, you will achieve what you are looking for, in greater abundance than you expected.
