You see, every single time we ask for a second chance, that is a good sign! It means that we saw something that we can and that we are willing to do better and it actually does not matter what exactly it is related to – presentation, corporate meeting, business call or something else. What matters though is that we did it once, we found our mistakes(or someone pointed them out to us), we thought about them and we said to ourselves: “Yes, that really makes sense. I will change!“. However, at the moment we do that, we are choosing to take the longer and harder road and that’s where it starts to get really interesting!
Many people prefer to not change (surprise, surprise). Why? Have you thought about that? My personal opinion is that it’s just easier this way. To change yourself is hard. Really hard. And those of us who do it frequently know that really, really well. However, here comes my “secret mission”(and the purpose of this blog post) for you. I am begging you to please speak with every single person you know or see that is one of the “no, I am not going to change that” type of people. Please spend some of your time to help them realise that the only way to stay relevant these days and so to be successful is by being able(and ready) to adapt to this almost constantly-changing world! Please ask them to not give up, to learn, to listen and to ask for feedback every single time they can! I believe that every single person willing to do all these things will then always ask for “second chance” or at least will always think for what it could have been if he/she had it. That, SQL Server friends, is where we actually started from. Remember?

So, please help me make the world a better place, because I am sure you too like me want to see more successful people, more people that are doing great stuff, more people that are willing to change and more people that are dreaming for “second chances”!

That was it from me this time. Bradley, thank you so much for hosting number #44! I believe we will see some great blog posts again and I don’t know for you, but I already can’t wait to read all of them!
