Due to my husband’s new job, I’m in a new city, a new home, a new community, and God can take me in any direction he chooses. I realized I wouldn’t get an interview, a job or even an offer without him causing it to happen. What happened after that realization was pretty extraordinary.
You have to constantly be learning and then putting what you learn into practice. And it’s exactly this practice that makes you good at what you do. The more you practice the more experience you gain and the more your skills improve. The more you practice the more you progress.
It seems all the opportunities I want in life are coming to me before I’m ready for them. I have so much to learn, and I absolutely love learning. I love challenging myself to do better. I’m very driven.
Sometimes though, my drive is a mask to cover the insecurities I feel about my career path.
I want to be perfectly qualified, experienced and confident in my ability. I want to love what I’m doing and know I’m good at it. But I’m no where close. I’m pretty good at faking it, but secretly I’m still dreading the day my coworkers figure out just how little I know. I really am not the best person for my job.
This week I came to the realization this is actually a good thing. In fact, it’s a very good thing. Let me explain.
