No matter how much you think you want something, maybe you’re not being honest with yourself. Don’t be disappointed when the things you think you want don’t work out, you’re destined for greater things. That’s the thing about life, it’ll subtly guide you the way you really want to go, but you may take it as dismay. Everything happens for a reason, and just because a phone interview went badly doesn’t mean you’re completely incompetent. Maybe you’re not passionate enough about that specific job, and maybe your dream job is just around the corner. There is a reason for this, so I won’t beat myself up for it. Whatever happens will be meant to be. Sure you can take control and act to make changes, but sometimes, if you’re making the wrong changes, the miracle of life will nudge you along in the right direction.
