Why not?

Why not pitch your dream company?
Why not quit your job?
Why not broadcast your job hunt all over Twitter?
Why not drag your resume into the recycle bin?
Why not change your friends?
Why not change your career?
Why not audition for American Idol?
Why not live a life of joy?

Stop asking, “why me?” Start asking “why not me?”
