More and more everyday the majority of us are gaining valuable experience in a forever changing work environment only to realize what you've personally grown with isn't a plus on your resume but rather a wall. The term Used To Be is what keeps a lot of very talented and gifted people from succeeding because decision makers are set on finding a new source of energy and not the well oiled trials and trails of dedication and loyalty. I laugh this stuff off because this is how the NFL and NBA have changed the workplace. Lebron James job hopping is the norm. Nobody truly cares about what he did in Miami or Cleveland, they're more interested in how he's going to help regenerate the Los Angeles Lakers. Your job is no different. On this podcast we talk about how having experience means nothing. The real day to day player needs to hit the floor knowing solutions with a return on the investment. Your past means nothing to them and everything to the voices in your head. Once you've agreed with the inner self that you've become a Used To Be the power of growth turns into a stone thrown against a mountainside. Its not about what you used to be but rather who and what you're going to be. The only thing that stands in your way are the computers connected to Indeed, Monster, Ziprecruiter and every job placement center that still thinks a resume holds strength. Show me the boss that cares about your past. Most leaders are too far into the future. The Avengers are yesterday. This isn't a negative but rather an open eye to awareness. Reengage by washing who you used to be from your face.
