Put It Behind You
Do you have painful memories from your career that still haunt you? Maybe your first boss denied you a promotion you felt you deserved, or you were seduced by a persuasive manager into staying in an unrewarding job, or your organization never came through on promises made to you. Especially for successful, high-need-for-achievement professionals, unpleasant memories can exert a stranglehold on future growth. In this chapter, organizational behavior expert Thomas DeLong shows that speaking the truth about these experiences to a trusted confidant is a highly productive reality check. He uses striking personal and business examples--including a technique one management trainer used, in which groups of professionals literally raised their arms and "threw" their past experiences behind them--to drive home the importance of freeing yourself from the negative impact of remembered failures. The chapter not only gives you new ways to interpret beliefs or events from your past--it inspires you to embrace your own success in a new and more rewarding future. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 10 of "Flying Without a Net: Turn Fear of Change into Fuel for Success."
