What do you have to lose?

What do you have to lose?

After yesterday’s blog about evaluating your current situation in life, I wanted to share a little story with you.

I was on the plane to D.C. for my brother’s bachelor party and I happened to be sitting next to a really nice guy. We ended up chatting, I asked if he had dogs, and of course he did. I showed him the song, we got to chatting about animals, life, music, you name it. Turns out his wife is on the board of a very big animal rights organization and long story short, he put me in touch with said organization and as they say, the rest is history (hopefully).

Now during this conversation, and extremely nice women turned around and said “I have a dog.” So while I was talking to my new buddy, I gave her my iPad so she could listen, and I watched her face light up. She then told me a good friend of hers works at a major record label, particularly with a very famous female artist who would love the song.

What’s the lesson of the story? WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?

There are opportunities all around us at every single moment of our existence that we can seize to better ourselves. We can grow, excel, get better jobs, make more money, be happier, all it takes is taking a chance.
