The Oil & Gas industry is a very demanding sector, and is not for the faint hearted. Any negative thought would adversely impact performance, and stunt career growth.
Here are some measures an employee can take to stay positive:
The sky is the limit
Self doubt is like a cancer - it grows on you gradually, and stays with you forever, thereby hindering your progress.
Stretch your boundaries - the human potential has the ability to overcome all hurdles. If we can reach the depths of the ocean and explore the limits of the universe, with sustained effort, it would not be difficult to conquer your self-doubt.
The power of positive thinking
We as human beings tend to stay in the past - our mistakes keep haunting us, and we start believing the future would be a reflection of the past.
Staying positive definitely helps, mistakes can be looked upon as part of a learning curve to perform better in future.
Again, the choice of words is very important, instead of saying “if i land a job”, it would be better to say “when i land the job”; it would convey a positive intent.
The mind controls the body
“As you think, so you become”, recruiters have the knack to spot non verbal communication (negative body language due to stress, lack of confidence), it would send the wrong signal about your candidature.
A positive mindset would boost your self confidence and facilitate your career development.
“Success has many friends, but failure is an orphan”. Everybody likes to stay connected with successful people (which translate into positive thinking).
Networking is extremely critical in moving up the corporate ladder, and staying positive helps in relation building.
Negative mindset means less productivity
Negative thinking is like a virus - it spreads across the organization, and affects the overall productivity. Imagine an organization under crisis, and the leadership team displays a negative mindset, it would have an adverse effect on employee morale.
