I am qualified. I may not have gone to the prestigious schools or been in the top leadership positions at a large company but I have spent my career observing. As you were clawing to the top and taking no prisoners on the way, I was watching. I was taking notes. I saw the human toll you took to better yourself. So yes, I am qualified. I didn’t study the theory and learn about what others hypothesized I experienced it. I did tests and collected data. I have lived it and what I see is not at all pretty.
You have underestimated who I am. I am not a follower I am a leader. I am not a person that watches others create I am a creator. I have imagination. I live outside of the box so that is why you never find me. I will not just fall in line with everyone else because I see the path and it is not the path that I am interested in going down.
You have underestimated who I am. I am not a follower I am a leader. I am not a person that watches others create I am a creator. I have imagination. I live outside of the box so that is why you never find me.
So when you judge me without taking the time to know me it is you that is not qualified. You are not qualified to lead if you are not able to see the people that hold value around you. You are not qualified if you believe you hold the key to my success. I will take my knowledge and know how elsewhere and you will be a perfect example of why you are not qualified. I will be critiquing you and providing you with areas where you could improve.
Yes, I have been silent but through writing, I am finding my voice. A voice that is stronger than I ever realized. A gift that I never knew I had. I don’t intend to hurt anyone, I am just finished being the one that is hurt. So no, you may not like what I have to say but I speak the truth from the vantage point of where I am sitting. My truth is just as valuable as anyone else’s truth. I am done being criticized for who I am. I have value. I have been underestimated. I have been made to believe what I have to say does not count. I have news, I am qualified, I do have something to say, and my opinion does count.
