Seeking success can be a very interesting journey. Sometimes you end up going the long way around just to find that everything you needed has always been in your possession. Most of us are sleep walking through our careers. We are going through the motions and playing the game by someone else's rules. I say that it is time for us to wake up. This requires changing the game and your point of view. We have to wake up to the fact that we have to create the success WE want. Certain people would have us think that we need to follow a certain tradition or methodology and that it just not true. We have to realize that not everyone has the IT factor. The IT factor is that intangible thing that makes a star a star. It goes beyond just having talent or being good at something. The thing about having this gift is it's not something you can practice or learn . . . either you have it or you don't. There are more people that don't have it than do and most of the time the rules a made by the people that don't have it. So a lot of us that possess the IT factor end up in situations that just don't serve us well. The only way off of this tread mill is to wake up to the fact that we have to ALWAYS look at ourselves as an independent entity. It's ok to lend our services to others sometimes but we need to spend the bulk of our time focusing on our own pursuits. Not everyone can understand a gift and if we don't seize the value of our own gift and nurture it, then we will continue to sleep walk into mediocrity, so for everything you contribute to anyone else's situation just make sure that you are doing at least the same for yourself. You might find that developing your thing is the way to open doors for all those around you. When you have the IT factor it is paramount that you learn to create and lead your own situations. BY the way, there is no ego in accepting the fact that you have IT. Others already know it. It's time that you HUMBLY accept it as well and step up to the plate to do what you know you should be doing. Enjoy the journey.
