When I graduated from college, I applied to at least three different companies to work with children on the autism spectrum. When those didn't work out, I interviewed for an administrative position at one of the country's top-ranked universities. Education was a huge part of my life, and I wanted to aid in bringing the same look of excitement to applicants when they receive their acceptance letters.
Lo and behold, the divine had a grander plan for me — a plan beyond my wildest dreams.
When you don't get what you want, you're about to get something better. You can only see the big picture when you're out of the frame. The key is to stay adaptable to changes. Listen to your inner voice, and trust that you are being redirected to something greater.
There are many paths to the dream; success isn't linear. Keep your gaze fixed on that which you want, and act on it deliberately with unwavering faith and immense gratitude every step of the way. Challenges are tests of your fortitude and the Universe's way of checking if you're ready and capable of taking on what's next. You can only step into the next role once you have fulfilled and maximized your present conditions. To progress, you must grow. You must become so large that you catapult yourself into more abundance, more riches, more life.
Do all that you can with certainty and fearlessness. Keep moving towards realizing your desires, knowing that success is guaranteed. There is no need to hurry.
