Mindset for Success
Dream, Do. Before you sit down to work today, take 30 seconds and visualize what you desire. Picture wild success. Then take the next step.
Avoid Desperation. Few things are as unattractive as desperation. Let it go. You’re a talented person, and there are plenty of opportunities out there. You got this.
Fuck the ATS. So the robots rejected your resume again? Fuck ‘m. Seriously, sidestep the whole thing! Go create a project, pitch, or email that shows you’re awesome and email it to a real human.
