Unless you do it, people will make assumptions about your value based on what they perceive.
And people don’t often perceive context, or potential, or even what’s actually valuable about something or someone.
It’s up to you to demonstrate what value you provide, and then to communicate it.
We’re not in your head, we can’t see things the way you do. That’s why we need you to tell us how you see things.
Fortune favors the bold? I don’t know if that’s always true, but it sure doesn’t favor the silent.
