He Never Imagined He Could Do It...
He walked out of the building, into the bright sunshine, and took a deep breath.
Two years of stress rolled off his shoulders. He stretched, took another deep breath, and chuckled. He felt lighter.
He never imagined he could do it - take a chance, make a change. But he had hit a wall and staying in his current employment was no longer acceptable. He had to get out or he might lose his mind.
There was no path for improvement or growth in the current company. The atmosphere oozed laziness and resignation. The more he tried to get ahead, the more frustrated he became. His creativity was being stifled by a culture and climate that was uninterested in changing.
He reluctantly realized HE needed to make the change.
On a fluke, he ran into a connection at a bar one night. They had a quick conversation about his current frustrations, and he didn’t think much would come out of it aside from some venting over a couple of pints.
Then he decided to follow-up. He walked into the building intending to set up a more formal meeting. They invited him in to talk.
The informal interview could not have gone smoother, as if he was in the right place, with the right people. Other managers popped in to join the discussion, whether by accident or by design he didn’t know. He was open and honest as they peppered him with questions. He felt he had nothing to lose.
They offered him a position right on the spot.
We deserve more. We feel it in our bones. We hear the whispers in our hearts. But we ignore our intuition and follow the path set out for us by others.
When we shift our focus, our momentum shifts. When we prioritize ourselves, we create more of what we want and less of what we don’t.
You can feel lighter. You can work with people who appreciate your gifts. You can achieve your dreams. You can take control of your time, money, and sanity.
