Thoughtful Friendliness Invites A Job Interview & Spectacular Success

Spectacular Success
The unforeseen success other people intentionally create for you
because you intentionally create success for them

A woman looking for a teaching job could get hired only for substitute teaching because permanent jobs were scarce. She found lunchtimes on her substitute jobs lonely.

Walking into the staff lounge one day, she saw another woman eating alone. Sitting down at the table, the substitute teacher smiled at the other woman and made pleasant conversation. The other woman said she worked in the front office, and asked the substitute teacher about her education and career plan.

A week later, the substitute teacher received a call from that school, asking her to come in for an interview. The woman eating alone in the staff lounge was the principal of the school. During the interview the principal said, “I thought you’d be a great addition to our staff.” Having already seen how friendly the substitute teacher could be with other people, the principal decided to hire her for a permanent position.

The substitute teacher intentionally created a friendly lunch for the principal. That thoughtful intention invited the principal to create unforeseen success for the substitute teacher.

A web host transfer made some posts disappear. Luckily, I copied each post and emailed it to myself. Since I alternated success and failure posts, I will have to remove posts and republish them in success and failure order. I will do this as I have time. Apologies.
