If you aren’t where you want to be or you haven’t achieved all you hope to achieve, the reason most likely resides not around you but within you. Take responsibility and then take action. First, though, you must believe in yourself and your value. You can’t wait for others to discover your hiding place. You can’t wait for that miracle or “just the right opportunity.”
You should consider yourself the stick and the world your pot of stew. Stir it up.
