The Dreaded Unemployment Line
Hi. So, now, I'm out here, looking for jobs, like many of the people I have spoken with and coached. I have what it takes---I mean, thats my advertising mantra--one of them. So, I have this 6 digit resume, but not even a two digit knock at the door! It's frustrating.
But wait! I COULD be depressed, and I COULD be dismayed---or, I COULD be push, push, pushing. And THAT, my friends, is what is going to get me a job. There are TWO ends of a football field. There is the Failure Team Goal Line, and the Achievement Team Goal Line. The game of life is currently IN PLAY. You might fumble, you might stumble, you might get tackled. But what you cannot do is quit. Pick up that ball, put your head to the wind, and GO.
Thats all you can do, except give up. I am not giving up. Anyone going through something similar?
BTW: When you are in this position, you MIGHT just find ur self having to be the waterboy for a little while...and its better to be a water carrying Quarterback than a sitting on the bench Head Coach.
