During my meditation this morning, I was unexpectedly transported back to the summer of 2007 when I landed my job with the The Kraft Group / The New England Patriots. I hadn't thought of this in years.
This series of events dramatically changed the trajectory of my career. It was one of the most pivotal moments of my life. I was in the right place at the right time. With several strokes of luck, I landed my dream job with my favorite sports team in the world.
When I share this story with friends and colleagues, they're always amazed at the turn of events. I'm usually met with a range of reactions. This is outrageous. What are the odds? Did this really happen? No way.
After more reflection this morning, I published a tweet storm detailing the story. I decided to share it because it demonstrates the power of going after what we want. It also demonstrates how we are able to create our own luck in life.
Sometimes all we have to do is think big, set an intention and go after it. We might not land where we expect, but I can assure you that new doors will open and they will lead to new opportunities and transformations.
