‘Tis the season to be motivated, diligent, steadfast, and vested in yourself.
Are you fully vested in yourself? In order to answer this question, we have to consider the definition and usage of fully vested? Regarding stock options and retirement benefits, this just means “a person has rights to the full amount of some benefit, most commonly employee benefits such as stock options, profit sharing, or retirement benefits.”
The first question you have to ask yourself is what is my passion? The next immediate question you have to ask is how many years do I need to work in my passion or what measure of success do I need to make in order to be fully vested in myself? This is a case-by-case basis because not everyone’s goals are the same or measures success the same way. Some people may identify they are fully vested after 3 years and some will say after 7 years. Some people measure success by increases in supporters and some by increases in demand.
My story is that I stay vested in myself. This way I don’t have to get ready when opportunities present themselves. I don’t let the no’s get to me or at least too much. Ha, ha! You can’t imagine how many times I have been told no or yes with no follow up. If we are speaking honestly, those things get to me at first, but then I ask myself, is this no going to stop me. Then I say absolutely not. I sometimes take a break to clear my head and thoughts. Then I come back full throttle.
I’ve been fully vested in myself for over 10 years now. Are you fully vested in yourself?
