Tim took a risk; good for him. He stepped into a new role in a start-up financial business. Within three months, Tim was feeling the burn as one’s natural strength silhouette does not align properly with the profile of the role. The friction is tolerable for a while. How long depends on the individual and how far off the two are in the mismatch.
Tim had his reasons for taking this risk, and they were right and noble for him. Will he leave the role? Will he stay and work it through? The right answer is the one that is right for Tim – for who he is at his authentic core. Tim’s right choice, and authentic decision, will be guided by his purpose.
Personal purpose brings A New Confidence for the individual. A lack of conscious purpose is a lack of confidence. Tim’s confidence is in his authenticity. From that authentic center, he will step forward and into the presence of his own message.
And, as far as that résumé; it’s just a set of facts. The compelling story is in what Tim did to make those things happen; and in a manner that only he could do. His story is one of A New Confidence. The résumé is not the message. Tim, you are the message.
