Today’s Positive Thought (keep an open mind, Craig answers a meditation student)

I just got a an offer for a job that is one hour away from home.  I’ve been looking for a job for a while with no luck on even getting interviews.  I saw this one, and contacted them.  To my surprise they called me right away.  I have been to two interviews and they are very interested in me.  I don’t get it.  Why the one that is far away?  When I did initially contact them I was not even taking it seriously.

Craig’s Answer:

Years ago when I had a landscape business, my business mentor told me to ask my customers if they want their gutters cleaned.  I never thought much of this idea.  Then one day I thought why not?  and asked a customer  if he needed his gutters cleaned.  He said yes, and we did it.  Two years later, I stopped doing landscape jobs and only did gutter cleaning.  I loved putting people’s minds at ease about possible water damage etc. and it paid well.  Now twenty years later, I still own the business.  We do gutter cleaning and window washing.  This business has been good to me and my family in ways I would have never imagined.

In my opinion, this job offer is a reminder that you have to be open-minded and know that your good can come from anywhere.  It will often come from places that you never would have thought,  if you let it.  This job may even be the best job you ever had in your life.

When you did answer the advertisement, even though you were just answering, thinking “there is no way they will hire me, besides it is too far”, just the act of answering was letting the whole universe know that you are open to good coming in ways you were not open to before.  The more you open up your mind to the possibilities of good coming in ways you would not look at before, the more you will find opportunities showing up all over the place.

  1. Some people call this driftwood. It’s sign that your almost there when you start getting closer to what you want. Look at it as a move in the right direction, instead of being upset that it’s the job that’s too ad away. 🙂
