Have You Ever Missed the Mark?

Has anything ever happened to you that completely threw you for a loop? There you were, tooling along just fine, and then BAM! You got broadsided or knocked off course by something totally out of left field.

No, I’m not talking about the Superbowl game, although that is a great example. Maybe it was a client that you were sure was going to sign on. Or maybe it was a speaking or music gig that fell through or didn’t turn out well. It could’ve been that job that you thought for sure was a good fit but didn’t quite pan out. Does it seem like you can’t catch a break or you keep missing the mark? It makes you just want to bang your head against a wall!

I missed the mark recently and believe me, it wasn’t a fun experience. I decided to make this video to encourage you and maybe make you laugh a little bit. And yes, there may be a couple of Superbowl references. Enjoy!
