Rewards – The WordPress Family Award

It’s been under 3 months this project got started.

Time flies and its actually hard to get back into the mindset with which it all started: we are a result of our daily experiences…and has there been experiences!

People have been (still are) constantly providing ideas, texts and feedback.

Every single post is proof read by plenty of people (thanks to all of you who drop me a mail/text when you find out some mistake…you are loved for being so “strict”).

I’ve never been that interested about social media, so imagine my surprise when I found out I’ve been awarded something by somebody!

And its not just anybody…its a blog (and the person behind it obviously) which actually has thousands and thousands of hits! (Note: he’s trying to get to the 100.000 visit mark…please do check him out).

So without further delay…

Here is the blogger giving the award:

And here is his award:

Rules:

1. Ping back to the person who gave you the Award (Me) <- Done!

2. Display the Award

wordpressfamilyaward

3. Display the text in Red as I want people to know why I made it

This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I start this award on the basis that the Word Press family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only Word Press can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award. Thank you, Shaun

I don’t care for the big guys.

How to be lucky

Ever wondered how some people just keep being lucky?

We all know someone who constantly seems to be in the right moment in the right time!

Encontrar una moneda

A friend of mine is like that: he’s always doing interesting things and I feel jealous (in the good sense) of how he repeatedly has such good things come into his life.

Some time ago, he decided that after years in the design industry he wanted an opportunity abroad from Spain.

So he devised a plan the best he could and he started communicating what he wanted to anyone who would lend a listening ear.

If you want we can talk in some other post about the importance of attitude and ressonance of our ideas 😉

Mujer con megafono

After quite a few months (which to him it seemed like years) he landed an incredible opportunity in Northern Europe. We were all thrilled that he had managed his ambition.

So it happened that through this opportunity, he saw that what he believed he most wanted…was not so. He learned hands-on what the task implied…and decided it was not for him.

manos sucias

So he quit.

With no other job at hand.

Having to return to Spain.

And only 1 week after he was back here, getting ready for some time off and regenerating him grey cells…he was suddenly called for a project also abroad in Europe.

What he hadn’t realized was that once you get things into movement, they don’t stop when you decide.

It just so happened that all the idea-pushing effort he had made over a year ago was still yielding opportunities.

And it was SUCH a good opportunity.

Right now, he’s working in the company he’s always loved, doing the work he really enjoys and experiencing an opportunity abroad.

How has he done that?

  1. Have a clear message. If you can’t explain it in 1 phrase, keep fine tuning it
  2. Be passionate about what you want. Don’t just take whatever comes across…accept only what makes you vibrate!
  3. Be honest. No sense in making up things or trying to fit in a non-fitting situation…in the end it will become a frustrating situation for everybody

Have you had similar experiences? Do you know someone who is also constantly lucky?
