When talking with a few of my clients recently, I’ve noticed frustration in their voices and a sense of being overwhelmed—almost like the thick fog that blanketed our area this morning. When I first woke up it was very dense and difficult to see beyond the end of my front porch.
But as I continued to get ready for the day, the fog eventually got lighter and one-by-one rays of sunlight began to penetrate the heavy blanket and gave way to a beautiful morning.
It reminded me of a time when I was in transition. It felt like everything was crashing around me at once and I was fighting for every breath that I took (at least it seemed like that). The more I struggled and wrestled with the search, the tighter it’s grip became.
But I continued on—determined—one foot in front of the other. One call led to a meeting, which led to a contact, which led to a company that was hiring, which led absolutely nowhere. Back to square one with the fog around me threatening to get thick once again. But another call, another meeting and a couple of contacts and I was beginning to see a ray of sunlight breaking through the cloud of my ever encompassing job search.
Through that process I learned to appreciate the small wins. That any job worth having is worth working for and that yes, the fog will eventually burn off.
