Career Advice -- Building Your Reputation

Posted by Brian Spence on May 10, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Career AdviceThe business world can be a cruel and difficult place to live in. People all have a different way of seeing things, thinking things through, working problems out, building companies up. And that can make it hard to build your reputation up into something you will be proud of.

But sometimes, pushing and shoving and trying to climb to the top, just doesn't get us there. And that can crush some people.

But what we need to understand is that sometimes, we need to break our own reputation down.

Medium.com posted an article earlier this month titled "Build your reputation, but don't be afraid to destroy it and become notorious." In the article, they said, "In order to build a reputation worth having, you might have to destroy your 'reputation.'...If you have interesting ideas, don’t be afraid to look like a fool when you articulate them to others."

And that is completely true. Reputations are fragile things, and sometimes we have to destroy the reputation we've built because it is restricting to a new idea and a new dream. Those new ideas and new dreams can be amazing, and so worth it that you might need to destroy your reputation to follow that dream. Just don't be afraid to.

Putting your emotions on the line can help add to your reputation as well. What do you care about so much you'll cry for it, scream for it, yell for it, fight with all you have for it? That is what you should work for, and that is how you can build your reputation up even more.

Building your new reputation up may be hard, but you don't have to do it alone. For information on this and related topics, visit the Career Advice section of our blog.
