The Chosen One?
“No one is going to pick you. Pick yourself.”
When reading Seth Godin’s Reject the tyranny of being picked: pick yourself, the last two sentences of his blog post stopped me in my tracks and allowed me to come to a realization. Much like many others, I am a person who longs to get picked for anything, whether if its for a job, a project, etc. The most common and simple solution for this is to work harder, push harder, grind harder. Although, picking yourself is a completely different story. I was delighted after finishing Godin’s blog post because I realized that instead of following these “cultural instincts” and relying on others to get picked, I should pick myself.
