Thirteen years ago, I joined LinkedIn.
Since then, the most rewarding part of LinkedIn has been helping people believe they can land work.
It has been said,
We all fear what we do not understand. ~ Dan Brown
Few things are more confusing than today’s job market.
That’s why I wrote 170+ LinkedIn articles and two books, Job Hunting Secrets (From Someone Who’s Been There) and LinkedIn Strategies to Take Your Career to the Next Level.
After all, how can you believe you’ll be hired if you don’t understand the process?
These books answer those questions.
In all of your efforts be they job seeking or whatever you are pursuing, remember,
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. ~ Mark Twain
Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth. Never let someone else’s opinion of you become your reality. ~ Zig Ziglar
Most importantly, remember this,
A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval. ~ Mark Twain
I should know, I lacked belief. However, over time I realized that the people who undermined my self-belief were themselves insecure and were more interested in amusing themselves at my expense.
Perhaps, the best thing about that experience is it prepared me for a world that unfortunately, can sometimes be very mean.
In other words, don’t let others be the clouds to your sunshine. Shine bright!
