Lost and Out of FOCUS?

Rejection can be taken a couple of different ways. Depending on who you are, how you are and where you're at inside your soul.
For me, today... rejection is well... *UC* YOU!
You made me mad and I'm going to do something about it.
Here's what I keep saying to myself: I am successful. I am healthy. I am energetic. I am a FRESH THINKER. I am innovative. I am resourceful. I am passionate. I am an achiever. I am a team player. I am creative. And I am great. I am me. I am who I am.
But, when it comes to applying for a job and getting that job you are or you quite simply AREN'T, the right fit.
In my case, in most instances... I'm not the right fit.
I'm middle management. I come from the school of 'hard knocks.' I don't have a BA or an MBA or a LLBA or whatever. I don't have blond hair, wear tons of make-up and stand in high hills wearing a pin-striped suit.
I've got the diplomas, enormous amounts of common sense, a visionary mind and the street smarts training.
I am who I am and I right now I am feeling a little lost. And the only way to get back on track is to find the passion in my mid-life and to follow it.
Hello passion... hello passion... where are you passion...? Come here passion.... come on.... passion... I can't see you passion... where are you passion.... I'm a little out of focus.... forgive me.... I'm looking for my passion... Where are you passion? Hello PASSION!

Your reflection is very encouraging. The world doesn't need another pin stripe glossy one line wonder blonde. Organizations need divergent thinkers who know how to fail successfully and have the courage to declare their struggle and pursue their passion.
Sounds like you are the just the right fit for many environments. There are just a lot of hidden agendas when it comes to the hiring process.
