Last week we were handed an opportunity to lead and make a difference, and I did not take advantage of it! I lost the opportunity. Truthfully, I don't believe that I would have recognized it as a real opportunity until the possibility was made so clear.
I was disappointed in myself. Therefore, I think Feinberg's strategy worked on me. Am I glad that I didn't take advantage of the opportunity to be a leader? The answer is yes and no. No, because I miss out on making a difference. Yes, because now I have experienced the ache of opportunity lost and I'll never forget that feeling.
I believe I will be looking at my opporunties much differently from here on out. I am thankful for that.
