Ep. #143 Why “Don’t Get Too Excited” is Bad Advice

Picture this: you are submitted for one of your dream jobs, you tell a friend about the potential job, and they tell you, "don't get too excited it might not work out." Well I'm here to tell you that the correlation between excitement and disappointed is not mutually exclusive. You might think it’s a FACT that the more excited you are about something, the more it hurts when it doesn’t work out the way you thought it would… But, what if I told you it isn’t? What if I told you it DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY!  Show Notes: Listen to Ep #93 Think Outside the Box w/ Nina McNeely  Donate to the Words That Move Me Community Mailing List: Scroll to the bottom of the page at thedanawilson.com WTMM Membership: Join Here ...
