MONDAY BYTES — May 11, 2015
It’s easy to see others as the ones with all the power, the ones who determine what we can ultimately achieve.
And it’s true, we don’t control the outcome when someone else picks who gets hired.
But we all have more power than we realize—or more than many of us are willing to accept.
Ultimately, we have the power to determine how we invest our time and energy. We have the power to influence others, build our skills, reputations, and networks. We have the power to determine our own projects, perspective, and behavior, and consequently our circumstances, prospects, and futures.
If we accept that we have this power then we need to accept the responsibility that comes with it. When we exercise our power we pick ourselves.
There’s an energy that comes with taking action—even when we’re afraid—with action we honor our own power. Getting started boosts our energy and confidence levels.

What have you been avoiding starting or unconsciously waiting for permission or the perfect time to start? This week is the perfect time to, as Seth Godin reminds us, Pick Yourself.
