One phone call can change your life...forever.
I've heard it said many times, and I get it, especially if you are a ballplayer waiting for that call to the majors, or if you are waiting for the call that you got the job you were hoping to land. I always thought, however, that most people were just being overly dramatic and using it as a cliche statement.
What if you didn't get that job, but instead got a call from a different company that ended up being a better job? What if, as a ballplayer, you never get called to the majors, but stay in the minor leagues and wind up being a top-notch coach? What if that call was the worst thing that could happen?
It's always been my view that there are multiple paths that our lives could take. There are numerous opportunities that are presented to us and that one phone call bit was a bunch of hogwash.
Until I received that one phone call that changed my life...forever.
