I Thought I Made the Worst Mistake of My Career, But 3 Things Helped Me “Embrace the Suck” and Move on. ~Emile Lee
I love stories of resilience and learning and this is a great one espoused by The Business Insider. Here Emile Lee speaks about his encounter with an overseas career assignment that was not a fit. Mistaking his cultural background, he was hired on the spot for an assignment he wasn’t fit for. After mulling over the good, the bad, and the ugly, he stopped feeling sorry for himself and decided to embrace his circumstances and learn from his situation.
Looking back, he shares his learning. I have extracted the 3 key points that forged his new path.
1. Embrace The Suck
2. Use positive self-talk to open yourself up to risks and change
3. Seek out mentors and internal champions
Hope this story inspires you to keep going and never give up. Need help? Let’s connect.
