what happens tomorrow if your boss is turning a blind eye towards you .In today’s corporate world nothing is constant and secure even if you are working a large Multi national corporation .there also jobs are not guaranteed .There will be recessions ,poor profitability mergers, acquisition.. all can write your future.
so what we can do keep yourself always positive like all wise-men says but be practical. you should always have a plan B on what your future going to be.Remember its you going to make your destiny not your Boss or your friends nor your family.if you have a job that is well on middle management or management level its great or for any one in a strart up line.Take your Job as a Training Feild for your Next Journey “Being your own Boss”. Trust this if you start looking your job in a learning perspective everything will look curious for you.you want to know more,learn more will have more question. why this ,why not this,what is that,how it can be done….
Imagine that you are the owner of the company or the section you are incharge of try to acheive more in each time you feel its enough.because if you treat like if you dont achieve more you cant pay off your debyts and you dont make any profits ,like the same way an enterpreneur will think.
an entrepreneur will look every possible way to make a sale ,change his tyle ,learn new skills…when you try this in your current job you will show more enthusiasm than normal,you will push yourself forward for training’s,initiate new responsibilities and extend more support to your boss ,because now you feel how it is to be a Boss.
when you start behaving like an entrepreneur you approach to situations will be different.you will tend to be more assertive.because you want to achieve your target.your negotiating skill will be improved.you keep a positive mind even a difficult task is put in front of you.you will start thinking if i achieve the result in better time and schedule i can hope for better opportunity.
Lead and Deliver:
Trying to be a boss is an easy task , you can delegate ,give instructions,throw ideas… if you have a bunch of fellows to say “Yess Boss”.But you have to think for the long run if you want to be Great Entrepreneur.you have to lead your team in the right direction.show what you can achieve and get the team inspired by your actions,words and your daily activities.do give constructive feed back, don’t try to fool your staff by giving OLD fashioned Sandwich Feedback its OUTDATED and they are clever than me.
If you agree some thing for your team it can be as silly as allocating an off requested but deliver it because you committed.it might not make you feel bad .but the level of trust start deteriorating if neglect small thing.remember always small thing for you might be Important thing for your staff.
Be there for your team:

show your presence in every event concerning your team or staff,try to wish or convey your regards personally to your team members when ever possible.

Evaluate your day:
It good to do and achieve things in your daily operation.but if you dont have a set process of evaluating your achievements .You can never find the positive thing and negative things of the path you are walking.
