My dilema is that my natural strengths and tendencies are not the highly prized by our culture. Instead of talkative and confident, I am quiet and reserved. I am not one that wants to crush my competition. Everyone wants aggressive while I would rather get along. Employers want those that are outgoing and who have high energy. I am more comfortable on the edge of the group and I need to pace myself to get through the day.
There must be a place for me. I believe we each have something special about us that if we apply it we will be number one in our field. It is just taking me a long time to find my niche.
I have value. I exercise good judgement. I am a good citizen. I am dependable and accurate. I like to keep everything up-to-date and in good order. My intellect is strong enough that I am curious and I ask good questions.
Where can I apply myself? I would like to be in a place that is a good match for my natural bent and where I can be the true me. I want to find my calling.
