Wise Career Advice From a Thankful Cat

To be successful in your career, you need to create your own opportunities.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

When you do great work, people will notice and give you bigger and better jobs to do. To show you what great work looks like, watch this video of a fireman saving the life of a cat.
