We’re not qualified until it’s bad

We might feel like frauds. We might feel like we’re not qualified to do our job — whatever that is. We might feel like we have nothing to offer

… until we see how bad the situation is.

When I go to an event to perform, I might think I won’t be that great for a certain group. Then, I see someone introducing me, I see how bored the audience is, I see how poorly something is planned. Suddenly, I know exactly what my purpose is. I know how to fix it.

When I talk to a potential client and I feel nervous that they might not hire me, sometimes they’re just not right for me, but sometimes it’s really obvious to me. Sometimes I think, this person’s really stuck and it’s easy for me to get them out.

I can usually find the problem, and if I have the solution, I’m grateful that I’m there to help.

Our value is invisible to us, so we gotta stay conscious of that fact. And sometimes we can gain confidence at the last minute by examining the situation and looking for ways that the people we’re there for have got it bad.
