Overlooked and Undervalued

Have there been times in your life when you’ve felt overlooked and undervalued?

Have you stood by and watched flashier more outspoken types get kudos early on?┬áHave heart and don’t let this throw you off track. Flashier types may initially be recognized for their efforts however the attention they initially receive often falls by the wayside when they tend not to deliver as promised.

Charm flash and the ability to talk a good talk will only go so far. There are qualities which although not dazzling at onset pay dividends over time.

Determination, doggedness, consistency, hard work, and sincerity are valued.

There are those who don’t initially seem talented, though they are and don’t readily toot their own horn because they are absorbing, studying, and figuring out what needs to be done. Quieter more focused workers do have what it takes though it takes them time to gain confidence and a certain level of comfort with their skills.

If you are determined, dedicated, patient and willing to give your all you have what it takes to get where you want to go.

Stop looking over your shoulder at the flash in the pan. Maintain your focus and on the tasks at hand. Don’t be afraid to assert yourself so that you can be recognized when it counts. If you pay too much attention to the accomplishments and recognition of others it takes you away from what’s happening with you.

You will need to develop a certain level of comfort with asserting your views and opinions. Be brave.

Be respectful to those you’d rather not speak to. This is not being fake it is being courageous and no one can honestly overlook a brave respectful and courageous person.
