The 8th Habit Covey Forgot - The Making of an Expert!
I could labor the idea but then that would only compromise the point. This article will have more impact on your career and psychology than any other business article you will ever read -- here it is.
The conundrum - are you waiting for someone to call you an expert? Even if others do, it won't hold near the weight, psychologically, that self appointment will. Experts call themselves experts and that is how they make themselves so. By declaration you declare yourself an expert. In the same manner humans declared this very country the "United States of America" sovereign and no longer under the order of England, you too can declare yourself an expert.
Think about the alternative, think about all the other things you can and do declare yourself that do nothing but compromise your success. Stop waiting and make it happen today. It will feel strange for a while but eventually you'll believe it too.
An expert is an expert when he or she determines oneself to be an expert. Only a lack of courage (which you also determine) will keep you from making an act of declaration with the power of words.
I find it almost comical that people will live their entire lives not really knowing why something is "so". It is so, because someone (a person, like you) made it so. Look at Donald Trump for example. He was born into wealth, went to the best of schools and still goes bankrupt every few years despite all his silver spoon experiences. However, others that start with much less than he did, never go bankrupt, make millions of dollars a year yet have to fight and claw to borrow a dime and not one tv producer ever asks them to do a show. The difference is, Donald Trump is the greatest business man on earth because he said so. If you don't believe me, ask him.

The Magic of Dreaming
The approach of a new year usually causes us to pause, review the year that's passing into history, recount our victories, and consider some of our nagging near misses. What went right?

Many of us have given up after failing to reach the desired ends we stated as resolutions year after year. Can we hope to have a different outcome in the coming year? Yes, we can! Here's how.

Sharpen Your Saw by Continuously Learning
What does a sharp saw have to do with lifelong learning? For all you Covey fans, you know Dr. Steven Covey coined the phrase "sharpen the saw" in his highly acclaimed book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. To me, I think about a saw sharpener as a complicated device that I would never be able to use. Doing an image search on "saw sharpener" on Google shows 423 different pictures of saw sharpening devices that require you to know various things and exert various amounts of effort to "sharpen a saw" in the traditional sense. Now there are probably close to this many ways we can keep our own saws sharp by continuously learning. I won't bore you with all of them, but I will outline a few of the ones I've found helpful below.

On the opposite end of achievement, however lie disappointment, discouragement, and defeat.
