A lot of people start off so motivated to do something, albeit any dumb, crazy, confounded idea, but life just seems to get in the way.
Guess what? That’s a poor excuse. And it’s an excuse I’ve used before, but not anymore peeps!
Whether it’s a job, talking to someone you like, or trying something random and new, I’m telling you to TAKE A SHOT.
I’m really good at winning things, exceptionally good, actually. I’ve won an Ipod, Boston bar/club events, radio contests, and even the grand-prize tacklebox at my brother’s Boy Scouts fishing outing (disappointed a large group of boys that day [probably won’t be the last time!]).
Basically, I’m really good at winning random not-so-important things but I’m not the best at winning at the game of life — I guess it all balances out 😛
I actually just won a contest through WROR 105.7 and I’m going to be on the air throughout the day, around lunchtime, and sometime around 9/9:15 a.m. tomorrow (April 12) talking to Loren and Wally during their morning program. Pretty exciting and random! PJ (“the eternal intern” there) has been super nice and accommodating, I must say! She does an awesome job there.
I’m stoked and a bit nervous, as a writer/reporter I’m used to being the one asking the questions! Now I’ll be in the hotseat. Oh well, it should be fun! 🙂
None of these somewhat silly (but mostly awesome) wins would have happened if I hadn’t put myself out there.
Which is why I’m going to put myself out there even more and share that I’ve applied to some other awesome opportunities toward furthering my career.
So, take a shot 🙂 who knows what may come of it? At the end of the day, knowing you tried is what matters. If something awesome this way comes, all the better!
I’m wishing you luck! Wish me luck, too!
