Attitude is a Choice


Companies can be like referees.

Maybe they make the wrong call, they become temporarily blinded, or they don't respond to your requests.

The question becomes, are you going to get mad at them?

Are you going to complain to that referee (the hiring manager)?

You can if you want. But it probably won't help.

Instead, what if you processed your feelings, then just moved on to creating more value?

You always have a choice in attitude and mindset.
