“A blessing in disguise”

Now is the time of the year that many school leaders are seeking promotions as they move up the ladder of school administration.  For me, I always wanted an assistant who would strive to one day be a building principal or superintendent.  Highly driven people tended to be more motivated to be the best they could be.  You may have applied for a position and ultimately you did not get the job.  Please stay upbeat and positive and do not sulk.  Sulking will get you nowhere.  Always remember that the best job for you at this time may be the one you currently have.  Retrospectively, not getting some jobs I pursued turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. Although disappointed and dejected, the rejection truly turned out to be a “blessing in disguise”.
