The power of not getting what you want

“Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.”—- Dalai Lama

People complain about the job they didn’t get. They complain about missing their flight. They complain about the car they couldn’t buy. They complain about everything- including where they live.

What they don’t know is that the job they didn’t get is pushing them closer to their dream job.

If things didn’t happen the way you wanted it to be, stop and think about the whole process.

Ask yourself:

What happened?

Why didn’t I get the job? Was it my mistake? How can I improve?

Take it as a learning process. See what you can take away, so that next time, you will put it to a good use.
