He landed his dream career and invited me to attend his celebration party!

“I thought you would like to know that I have landed finally, and the outcome is fantastic.”
Woohooo!! What a joy to receive this email! (see the full email below)
Every month, I teach my highly acclaimed workshop Career Shift: Find Work You Love at General Assembly in downtown San Francisco.
I’ve taught it now 40+ times for 4 years to 600+ students.
Realizing that I’ve impacted hundreds of people through this class means a lot!
I often receive emails, notes, and words from my students about the transformational impact the exercises we do in the class have had on their career trajectory.
Last week, I received an email that made me really happy.
I want to share it with you to inspire you and to help you see what is possible for you or for the people in your life.
One of the attendees of my August class landed EXACTLY the work that he visualized during one of the exercises we did during the evening.

He even invited me to attend his celebration party! How fun!
I thought you would like to know that I have landed finally, and the outcome is fantastic. And you will be excited to hear that I basically landed in exactly the kind of place where my “flow” exercise guided me, despite all my doubts that it would materialize as such.
I will be working on microsatellites at [...] starting this week! I’m looking forward to getting back into space systems engineering, biking to the office, and experiencing the thrill of startup life. It seems like a really great fit for me with lots of potential. No dogs are allowed in the office, but everything else sounds amazing.
Thanks again for being on my team, and reminding me that good career outcomes are possible too.
Hope things are well with you!
Know that this is possible for you too or for people in your life (relatives, friends, coworkers).
YES, IT IS.
What is one step you are going to take before the end of the year towards the career of your dreams?
2019 is around the corner.
How would that feel to start 2019 knowing that you are actively taking steps toward the work you love?
P.S. If you are already doing the work you love, please do me a favor and share this email with people you know who need this inspiration and reminder. I bet you know people who would benefit from some inspiration.
