What is stopping you from having a great career? The answer, quite probably, is you. After all, it is so easy to settle for the dull but safe, or to allow yourself to become trapped in a career you dislike, or to persuade yourself that the job you really want is out of your reach. But it doesn't have to be that way. In No Fears, No Excuses, renowned 'career whisperer' Professor Larry Smith shows you precisely how to secure a great future. Building on his hugely popular TEDx talk, 'Why You Will Fail to Have a Great Career', he shows why people so often set out on the wrong path or become stuck. He then takes you step by step from that initial point when you are considering your options to the moment when you pitch for that perfect job. In the process, he demonstrates why pursuing your dream is not only desirable but essential, explains how to work out what gives you your 'edge', and sets out what decisions you have to make, and when. Practical and inspiring by turns, this is the one-stop guide that will help you transform fears and excuses into action and success. Whether you are starting out, looking to move up, or hoping to change direction altogether, this book will guide you towards a happier, more fulfilled career - now.
