Article excerpt from Entrepreneur:
My perspective may run counter to popular wisdom, but when it comes to your career, I think it’s a big mistake to ignore what you think you can’t control and focus on what you think you can. Let me explain the logic behind this.
More and more, it seems that folks are ignoring the big picture – the long view – and overreacting to what everyone is telling them to do. For example, the common meme of the day is that you’ll get lost and stomped on in the corporate world so take control and start your own business.
That may be a great strategy if you have no goals, no plans, and simply want to “move fast and break things,” but if you want to achieve great things in life, not so much.
Look at it this way. If your goal is to have a successful and fulfilling career – and whose goal doesn’t sound at least something like that – you have to take risks. You have to get out in the big wide world where the work is, the jobs are, the innovators are, the customers are, and, not surprisingly, the opportunities are.
If you don’t put yourself out there, you’ll never find opportunity and opportunity will never find you.
In life you are either a passenger or a pilot, it’s your choice.” Unknown
