When I took the GMAT test my score was 2 points lower


then what I needed to get into my preferred MBA program.


I spent 5 months studying for the test, paid a few hundred


dollars to take it, and I blew it.


I knew I could get into plenty of good schools, just not the

one I really wanted.


When I applied for my first executive role I didn't get it.


I didn't get the second one either.


I could have stopped trying. I had offers lined up from great


companies, but for less senior roles.


Many times in my career I had to decide whether to keep


chasing my dreams, or settle for less.


This is the mindset I follow:

I took the GMAT test again even though it meant I had to wait

another year to apply.


I kept applying for executive roles, I learned how to position

myself and eventually got the role I wanted.


Your dreams are worth fighting for - if at first, you don't


succeed, dust yourself off and try again.
