Re-Position Yourself – Become a More Confident You

Updated: May 30


I just read an article about a tech executive getting older and applying to Twitter and Facebook for a six-figure job in Silicon Valley. That area is notorious for hiring only twenty-somethings and thirty-somethings and locking out people over 40.


To make a long story short, he didn’t get either job, but he later thanked Twitter and Facebook for the opportunity and the friendly people he had met during the interview process.

Left without a job, he connected with another techie who allowed him to help start up a new messaging App. For his trouble, he would earn the title of “Co-founder” but no salary. He took the challenge, and they developed the popular WhatsApp messaging app together.


Facebook later bought WhatsApp from this team for 19 billion dollars, roughly 4 billion dollars more than his personal profit from the sale.

I hope this little story will motivate you greatly this week. Some of you may have been told you’re “over the hill,” too old, limited, or whatever.


The truth is that you’re only as limited as you think. As long as you have breath, you can reinvent yourself. You can learn new skills. You can go in a new direction. I call this the Art of The Restart.

Remember that you never have to remain stuck!


Sometimes, the opportunity that is denied you is your biggest gift. This guy got turned down for six figures, but it’s the best thing that ever happened to him.


When things are unplanned, ask yourself, “How can I reset or re-position myself?” “How can I turn this to my advantage?”


You’re only defeated if YOU say you are!
