A few months ago I had a conversation with a man who I met via LinkedIn. We had a conversation for about 40 minutes where he shared his current situation back then with me;
He didn’t have a job but really wanted one. He was constantly applying for jobs but he got constantly rejected and he also was doing a study, which he had very tough exams for.
This man really had a hard time, he had depressed feelings and a situation he absolutely didn’t want to be in.
After that conversation I didn’t hear from him until this week. He sent me a message if he could call me. I didn’t hesitate for a second and said yes.
To be honest, my first thought was ‘maybe something’s wrong or something bad happened’.
So, I called him the next day and found out that my thoughts were completely wrong.
He told me that he just signed a contract for a job where he can start this upcoming Monday! A really great job for a longer period of time where they are excited to work with him.
But that wasn’t the only thing he wanted to tell me. He also said that he had finished his study and has an international diploma for his field now!
How freaking amazing is that?!
The reason he called was to tell me all this but especially to thank me. To thank me for our conversation, because that single conversation changed his life.
That conversation helped him to push through and not give up.
That conversation helped him to get out of his depressed feelings.
That conversation gave him the power to keep going.
One single conversation of 40 minutes.
What a gift!
After over 6 months of having no job and being constantly rejected, this man has his life back.
This is why I do what I do.
I had tears in my eyes from gratefulness.
I was so moved by his story and I felt so blessed.
And what a message is in this story.
This is why I always tell people to never give up.
No matter the situation you’re in, there’s always a way out! ALWAYS!
Never ever give up. Don’t stop believing.
And if you ever feel YOU need a powerful conversation, leave me a message.
