In both business and life in general, many of us drink our share of toxic lemonade. We are fed a lot of baloney that simply isn’t true, and we start to believe it. Take applying for a job, for instance. We tell ourselves that unless we have all of the qualifications the employer is looking for, there is no way we would land that job.
Many of these job opening descriptions are misleading. Any HR person will tell you that the person who ends up getting the job may have only 30-40% of the requirements listed on the job advertisement. The reality is that hiring managers may put down all of these crazy requirements for the position, only find reality hitting them in the face after the first few interviews.
