I was working with someone last week (We will call him Matt) and he wasn’t achieving his goals. It was clear to him that there were a variety of reasons – an unfair hiring process, close-minded recruiters, and lazy people in his network. Matt told me how stuck he felt. Then he started to laugh – a somewhat odd reaction to the situation. “What’s so funny?” I asked him. “It’s me,” he replied. “I am expecting the whole world to change and I didn’t include myself in that group. Guess I need to start with me!”
Matt’s insights were right on point: to truly be success ready, we each need to grow into our goal and in the process, we increase the chances of achieving it.
Have a great day,
