No? Then it is perfectly fine to shift your loyalties. Dogs, not so much. The times of working for a company your entire career have gone out with the beeper clipped to your belt.

You know the game- hunt down your copy of Personal Branding for Dummies (A Wiley Brand) and let’s skip through today’s reading. Now that you have the book in one hand, you should have a cuppa in the other. Some nibbles should be within reach as well. Ready? Set? READ.
Once upon a time, people use to depend on others for promotions or raises.
I was in a situation at a job where I mistakenly shared a really good idea with a coworker who then peddled it off as their own work to any higherup that would listen. I lost an opportunity to someone who wanted the same thing I did, advancement. I just wasn’t willing to steal it. You must remember- you aren’t the only one trying to move up the ranks.
Can you trust people? Of course, you can. Should you put your future in their hands? No. Can others help guide you? Yes. Should you make your own decisions? Absolutely. You can take or leave advice. You can take the path a coworker recommends or head down a different hallway. These are choices for you to make. At least this way you can’t blame them if something goes wrong and they can’t take full credit if the plan goes well.
Polish your sparkle and just keep twirling.
Find joy. Be joy. Enjoy.
I’m always looking for new friends!
