Radical Truth #26

Sally Hogshead's book, "Radical Careering", is a kicker - every page is a slap of truth. Great wake up call to everyone who reads it. Radical Truth #26 is:

Circumstances can’t cripple your career as much as doubt or passivity. It’s impossible to act powerfully when you feel like a casualty of forces outside of your control. It can be easy to feel as if the future is determined by the economy, a boss, politics, or even luck. In the face of such fearsome enemies, it’s only naturally to relinquish control. In truth, the most dangerous enemies of success prowl within ourselves – apathy, uncertainty, complacency. By overthrowing these enemies, you make room for your own progress. Get out of your own way.
