So, this is a follow-up of what I’ve already written and talked about on my previous blog post. Let’s look at some of the people I’ve come across.
You could be the individual who has enormous capabilities, but be lacking in integrity, intent, or results.
For instance, you might have tremendous potential….and it remains just that — potential.
Let me give you a few examples.
There was a colleague I worked for who had a Masters in Business and Finance, yet he was in Thailand. It didn’t make much sense. Honestly, he was one of the most brilliant minds I’ve ever come across and gave me the original idea to start doing a podcast…..but he was never walking his own walk.
Another individual, who my content writer is in talks with (and has been for a while) has an insane amount of potential, is extremely smart, and the sky’s the limit….but she lacks self-trust and dooms everything right out of the gates.
Kenny, an ex-colleague at the College of Southern Nevada, was SOOO unbelievably smart. He knew about investments and anything you could ever imagine…yet, just worked as a slave in the front office of a dental faculty practice. An UNBELIEVABLY ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF POTENTIAL….but never walked his walk.
Guys and gals, capabilities mean everything in this globalizing and technologically advanced world. We’re outdating skill-sets faster than ever before. So you need to ask yourself some questions.
- What capabilities do you have that make you credible and that inspire the trust and confidence in others.
- What experience have you had (or not had) in developing capabilities that affects the confidence you have in yourself?
- What impact are factors such as technology and globalization having on the relevance of your current capabilities.
- What is your attitude and approach toward improving your current capabilities and gaining new ones?
