I'm lying on my bed during a rainy day in November, decades ago, in a rut. I've been unemployed for four months and I'm waiting to hear on several job opportunities but nothing has come through. I start reading The Greatest Salesman in the World
by Og Mandino and immediately find the motivation to take a shower, get dressed, drive to the nearby consulting firm (which is my best prospect) call on the CEO and convince him that day that I should be hired. Two weeks later I got the job.
