One of the unspoken secrets of career advancement is that in most cases, you have to DO the job above yours before management will give you that job’s title and salary.
In other words, you watch and learn and just start doing the job. You voluntarily take on more responsibility. You grow for the sake of your own growth. You contribute more because you want to contribute more.
Unsuccessful people hear this and say, “No way! Why would I do a bigger job without getting paid for it?”
Successful people say: okay, sure!
Unsuccessful people think the world owes them something, and that others should magically recognize the talent hiding inside them.
Successful people think: I want to prove what I can do.
If you want the job above yours, just start doing it.
