What is required of you will get you an average result. It will not guarantee you success. If you want to reach the top of your career, you need more than what is required of you- basic requirements. You need to go the extra mile in preparing yourself for future opportunities.
As William Jennings Bryan famously said, “Destiny is not a chance but a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”
To grow in your career, don’t wait for it to happen to you by accident. It is your choice. It is yours only. Pope John Paul 11 said, “The future starts today, not tomorrow.”
If you don’t prepare tomorrow today, you will not have tomorrow. Act now, not tomorrow!
