Good morning beautiful people! I hope you all had a great weekend and you were able to have some fun on this common last holiday weekend! It’s a short work week for all my 9-5 people so I hope this PositiviTea quote of the day will give you that extra push you need to get to Friday! So let’s jump right into it!
I can’t even begin to tell how many opportunities I’ve had come my way even when I didn’t have the talent or experience that they were looking for. It’s definitely somewhere in the double digits. Either the person looking saw my desire and hustle, or I sold them on my hustle desire by proving that I would always give over 100%. Many people go through life thinking that because they don’t have the talent required, that people are not going to give them a chance. They can’t be further from the truth!
If you walk into an interview for a job that you know you may not qualify 100% for, you have to prove to them why you still deserve that job! Do you have other skills that they may not have listed that you could still apply or make the role better? Are you open to training and studying outside of work hours so that you’ll be able to keep up with your more experienced coworkers? Basically, can you show them in actions that you have a desire and hustle to work hard and above average? If they answer is yes, your interviewer will see that and you will for sure get the job.
But what you can’t do, is lack talent and not have a drive. People aren’t just going to give you a chance because you really, really, really want the job. That may happen in the movies. However, in real life, that rarely happens. If you know you aren’t qualified, do what you can to get qualified. Or prove why your other qualifications still make you a good fit. So my challenge to you this week , is if you’re on the hunt for new opportunities and you see something that you may not 100% qualify for, write a list of all the ways you could still be a candidate. If you see that you could still make a good candidate, take a chance and apply, send your resume, or make that call. You have it in you to be the best! I hope you have a great day and don’t forget to spread a little PositiviTea!
