The problem is that a lot of people view talent as an inherent ability, that one has to naturally have and do well with, forgetting that it takes continuous and deliberate practice for great performance. - Samuel Kapansa
In this content “Career capital” refers to the rare and valuable skills that one can offer or invest in a company, at a work place or in a business.
Many are the times that people focus only in finding the right job or starting a more profitable business, or creating a life changing product that people can use, some even put in all that they gat in just wanting to build a company or launch a startup, all in Hopes of creating the next “Facebook”, next “Google” or next “Amazon”, not knowing what problem they are trying to solve or what solutions they are even providing.
In as much passionate as we might be in building a profitable business or finding the right job, we can never thrive or provide long lasting solutions to our existing problems without the right CAREER CAPITAL ( SKILL SET ) put in place.
Building that right CAREER CAPITAL ( SKILL SET ) should be the first thing on our plate then the rest just comes easier. The truth is, you just need to get so good that they can’t ignore you any more. Have seen our very our youths here in Zambia that have taken time to properly harness and work on their CAREER CAPITAL ( SKILL SET ) and now there is no way that they can just be ignored. People like Harry Banda, Natasha Wang Mwansa, Mputa, Billy Peterlennards Munyenyembe, just to mention but a few.
Forget about finding the right job and focus on building the right CAREER CAPITAL ( SKILL SET ) and a few years from now come back to this post and tell me how that is going.
The path won’t be an easier one, but the results will be worth it, it will take time, commitments, a continuous and deliberate daily practice of whatever CAREER CAPITAL ( SKILL SET ) you are trying to harness or build up. Stay motivated, stay focused and work on those skills that will get you the right job or earn you that profitable business that you want to get into. Stay blessed and happy CAREER CAPITAL ( SKILL SET ) build up.
