For this, you have to sit back and introspect. Where do you see yourself in 5 years or in 10 years? If you are in the sales team, do you want to continue there or move to another department like administration or finance? Do not restrict yourself from aiming high. Now that you have established the upper echelon, you have to work out the path to reaching it.

The next step would be to work out a time line. According to your present position in the company, chart out a schedule spanning years taking into account the experience and position that you would have acquired by then.

After you have made a structure of the plan, it should be followed an assessment of the skills that you possess. These skills will portray how well prepared you are in making your dreams a reality. Write down the skills and areas of expertise you have gathered so far. Polish these skills so that you are proficient in them. Concentrate on the areas where you feel you need to equip yourself better. Use the trainings offered by the company to the fullest. This will help create a good impression on your seniors.

For this, taking new challenges as an opportunity and facing them successfully can make you go a long way in your career. To do this, a few things that you need to emphasize upon are:

Motivation: Motivation inspires people to give their best and is the escalator which carries people to their set goals. A self-motivated employee is preferred by any organization. Motivated people also make the atmosphere around them positive and inspirational.

Time-management: For giving more productivity at work along with quality, people need to manage their time well. To manage the time, you’ll need to set time for different works according to the priorities. When people manage their time well, they don’t have to hurry for anything, work targets are finished in time, and the stress reduces as well.
