Remember picking teams back in grade school gym class or on the playground? All the best players got picked first and the least talented got picked last. I remember the feeling, hoping to be picked and then feeling relieved when I was finally selected.
It’s not much different as adults. We wait for a potential employer, a significant other, a business partner, or some other person or group, to give us their “seal of approval, by picking us to join their team. Perhaps we feel being picked by them validates us, our talents, our ideas and goals, and maybe even our individual value.
Instead of waiting for others to pick you, why not pick yourself? Why not realize the value, talent and ability that you possess and pick yourself to pursue the goals you’ve put forth for yourself, instead of waiting for someone else to do it? Validate the skills, worth, and ability you have and take the first step toward your goals by picking yourself to be the one that gets things started.
Don’t wait for others to pick you? Cause something to happen. Decide today to pick yourself.
