When you want something, you go after it. You survey your goal and you assess your talents and you formulate a plan of action to use your specific skill-set to take what’s yours. Being honest with yourself is of the utmost importance. If you delude yourself in to thinking that you can casually get what you want without even trying, then you set yourself up for failure. Know your limits, understand your weaknesses and plan around them.
I can not stress how pivotal it is that you be honest with yourself. Every business needs a person who can be depended upon and not someone who misjudges their ability to the detriment of the group. Consistent accomplishment is always praised higher than wild speculation.
