Anyone who has been reading my blog knows that I’m not the sort of person who would think or say “I’m not cut out for that”. Most times, I tell myself that anything is possible and set out to face my fears. But, there have been times when I’ve had to question taking on an assignment or assuming a role and ask myself, if in fact, I’m cut out for it.
There are generally two types of scenarios that mandate a decision to be made:
- When I am listening to my inner voice that is prompting me to do something.
- When I am listening to family, friends or colleagues who are encouraging me to do something
I’ve learned the best thing for me to do in either scenario, in order to make the right decision is to think of it in terms of what is the right fit for me. Is it in harmony with who I am?
Right now, I am working on a marketing plan so I am not only looking at what markets to target in terms of where there is a demand but also in terms of which markets I am suited for. That doesn’t necessarily mean I’m thinking of what’s in my comfort zone, it means that I am thinking about which markets I can provide the most value to. If I do it right, everybody wins.
