By Bonnie Low-Kramen
“Press on. Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” — Ray Kroc, Founder of McDonalds
What are you waiting for? If the pandemic has given you the time to dream big dreams, now may be just the perfect time to take action on them. Since March, I’ve spoken to so many assistants around the world who feel stuck and paralyzed by fear in this unprecedented situation. It’s time to get unstuck.
Why not? No excuses. Contrary to historically popular opinion, ambition is not a dirty word.
- Do you want to find a new job?
- Do you want to move to another city?
- Do you want to create a networking or mastermind group?
- Do you want to advocate for a new title or a raise?
- Do you want to lead a team?
- Do you want to finish your degree?
- Do you want to find a mentor or a coach?
If Covid has proven anything, it is that life is short and we had better take our opportunities or they may vanish.
Don’t allow fear or the impostor syndrome stand in your way. It doesn’t matter what others think. What matters is what you think.
If not now, when? Say yes. Need support doing this? I’d love help you.
