Waiting to be picked

The challenge in waiting to be picked by someone else is that they have to be smart enough to see your value.

It’s the same if it’s coaches, employers, belt promotions or a game of pickup basketball. If you’re taking part in something that depends on you being “picked” your job isn’t to wait to be selected. It isn’t to hope someone will get smart and choose you. It’s to make those who’s job it is to make decisions to look foolish for not picking you. To stand out so much that you “must” be chosen. To be so good that you can’t be ignored. It’s not easy but that’s all that is in your control. 

If you must get “picked” then ask yourself what are you doing now so that anyone not picking you looks foolish for it?
