Take This Test to See if You Are Doing What You Should be Doing

By Ben Hart

One reason you might not be reaching your full potential in business and in life is that you are a fish out of water.

A fish is not going to be good at things tigers are good at. And tigers are not good at things fish are good at.

So one of the biggest reasons for lack of success is people have been shoe-horned into the wrong jobs and the wrong roles. Or they have shoe-horned themselves into the wrong role.

If these marginal students manage to make it through high school, they are then faced with algebra again in junior college and community college as they attempt to compile a good enough GPA to move on to a four-year college — only to fail again.
