I recently had an amazing opportunity
fall into my lap.
This gig seemed so promising -- and lucrative too!
They flew me across the country for a meeting. They seemed to value the ideas I proposed -- I practiced what I preach and gave generously without giving away too much.
I had my fingers crossed...but a few days later, I got a message that it fell through.
And when I got that email message, I realized I had a choice:
I could be depressed OR use it to motivate me.
Because if one company was looking for that, it's likely they are not alone. If I got off my butt and went looking, I could find more.
I think I will. It will take some work but I may even find something better than what seemed at first blush like an "ideal opportunity." (We'll never know for sure if it actually was.)
Has this happened to you recently?
