Does it wrestle with your heart when you know someone who has so much potential but just can't seem to catch a break? What about yourself? Are the stars aligning in your favor? If not, what are you doing about it?
It's not easy when you've made great effort, but things are taking their time. At times, doubts can also creep in. You begin to question yourself, the process, the barriers, and the decision-makers involved. It is true that sometimes hiring organizations can overlook passionate and ambitious individuals simply because they lack in a specific area. Sometimes such organizations should make an effort to give people a chance to prove themselves, that's what taking risks is all about. That's how we grow and transform as companies. But it is a lot easier to work on ourselves and make changes in ourselves, than to change companies and organizations.
So if you are someone in need of that chance, don't let the doubts hold you back. Get back into the game, make some changes, acquire new skills or experiences, and wait for the results.
