10 Things You Should Stop Complaining About at Work
Everybody wants a promotion. Everybody wants to make more money and have more authority. However, promotions are rare and must be earned rather than demanded. As much as you may feel otherwise, you are not entitled to a promotion. Simply maintaining your job does not mean you deserve to be promoted. Inertia does not count as a reasonable argument for why you should be given more responsibility.
If you want a promotion, you need to do more than want. First, you should set goals with your manager and discuss the skills that need to be learned and the steps that need to be taken to achieve said goals. Achieving a promotion is about working hard and working well.
