When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. ~Lao Tzu
You need to speak up. Gone are the days when you can sit back and wait to be seen. To be promoted. Refraining to speak up makes you Invisible. It makes you feel stuck. It makes you a door mat; stressed the muse.
One of Jim Collins leadership trait discussed in his book Good to Great, tells more about the exemplary trait of humility. But these days when our society is all about the self, it is still very important to remain humble. But while being humble, it is also essential to self-promote. Amidst the ‘self-noise’, those who tarry to share achievements and accomplishments, tend to get left behind. Gone are the days when we do things and wait to be recognized. As sad as it is to say it… those days are fast disappearing. Individuals tend to act, then apologize after.
Today in our Selfie-society, we must self-promote. We must stand up; we must stand out; or we will be stood up.
