Having the opportunity to develop our strengths is more important to our success than our role, our title, or even our pay (Tom Rath, author). 

Some people are impressed by titles—professor, CEO, all-star and so forth. Others consider the wage scale a good indicator of advancement—the more you’re paid, the better you must be. Rath argues, however, that the real key to success is the opportunities you have to develop your skill and your ultimate worth in the workplace. That’s were success begins.

Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days (Ephesians 5:16).
