I was chatting with someone yesterday about a business sector that is about to enter a period of accelerated growth. Now it’s not an area that interests me, but my friend was so excited about this opportunity that his energy was palpable. When his expression changed from joyful to serious, I wondered what was up.
“Anita,” he said. “I know that this exponential growth will only last for a few years and I need to move now. Otherwise, the door will swing and hit me in the face.”
My friend is quite wise: he knows where is interest, passion, and talents lie and he realizes that he needs to muster up the courage, drive, and perspective to move ahead and win (not over others, but over himself.)
Much success, my friend – and to all those reading this.
