“If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.” – Tom Peters
A few weeks ago, the company I was with dissolved and I was laid off for the first time ever in my career. While devastating & stress-inducing for most I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to achieve my next goal. I know you’re probably sitting here like what do you mean? You’ve literally lost your major source of income and possibly a part of your mind!
While at least one of those statements are factual. I’m a firm believer in everything happens for a reason and it’ll be ok. Let me elaborate more on this blessing in disguise…
For the past couple of years, I’ve wanted to escape my comfort zone and relocate to a new city. Between the internal/external battles and doubts along with other various factors, it became a goal I found difficult to bring to fruition until now.
After my last trip to NYC in June, I affirmed I would live there by the end of the year. I guess you should be careful what you speak into existence because if the timing is right the opportunity will open itself up. Although the way the situation presents itself may not be ideal, it’s just another one of those times you have to grow through what you go through.
As I go through this experience I’ve realized this year has placed a number of people/resources in my life as well as taken some out so I could stop pulling down the shade and take that leap to achieve what I want.
As we begin the last quarter of the year tell me how you’re planning to finish strong? Share your goals with me in the comments and let’s help each other achieve the unthinkable.
Until next time…
