On a daily basis we get up and tell ourselves it is going to be a great day! We pray, study, listen to music or motivational audios, eat, exercise, then leave to start the day. The investment will pay off we think. We tell ourselves you got this! We go in the office to begin serving. Some of us are in positions that we are over qualified for but we give our 110%. We check the positions that are available but we think ourselves out of the application. Then we hear about a position that just might be for us but we procrastinate and the window closes.
We have a skill(s) that no one else has and we hide them. They show up every now and then. So you hear your colleagues, family, and friends say you are great at this or that. Unfortunately we bury it under all of the duties we have to complete. Then life happens.
The best is everything people seek. The only way they will know that you are the best is if you let them know. I recently met Chip Foust, (celebrity photographer) and he said “No one wants the second best if the best is available; You have to let them know you are the best!” This was so simple but profound. Many times we hope that someone will see us or notice our skills. The day for that is over! You must do what you have the skills to do. Stop holding back on what you need to showcase. Let them know you are here!
