“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing
in our own sunshine
. Ralph Waldo Emerson

How true this is! I lost out on a promotion because I was too busy explaining why I was not the right person for the position.

I should has have shared my skills and qualifications. Then I should have asked for support for the things I did not know and assured them I was a fast learner and would continue to give 110% of myself to the position.

I shared my weaknesses and did not get the position. I hope you do not make the same mistake. Get out of the shadow of your sunshine. Let your brightness shine and let others see what you are capable of doing.

Until next time, stay safe, and keep the faith.
