The Best Advice My Mother Gave

I was never the most patient person on earth and I always wanted everything to fall in place at the right time.  I would get so frustrated when people didn’t keep their promises and my plans would fall apart. And sometimes my very good plans would not get me anywhere, when there was no money to buy the things I needed to buy, or there was no time to put things in place. 
 
On one occasion I wanted to get a job at a hotel and start saving towards buying a car. I had   to pass the Drivers License test and I wanted to buy a car soon. There were many hotels in the city where I lived and I thought that getting a job would be an easy thing to do. And after that, I would be able to work, save and buy my car in no time. 
 
 
But I didn’t know that there were so many persons who were in need of jobs , and the employers wanted the people with past experience to fill the vacancies. This made it very difficult for me to get a job as I had no experience. I kept on searching for jobs and the time was slipping away, after 3 months I felt like giving up. But I decided to talk to my Mother about the situation. 
 
She told me that life could be a bit frustrating at times, and sometimes we need to be patient and keep on trying, she also said I should try to think of someone who already has a job in a hotel and I should ask them for assistance. Maybe they could speak to their manager and recommend me, if there is a vacancy at their work place that needs to be filled. She even said I should be willing to take any job I could get for now. As it was important for me to have work experience.
 
I was very glad for her advice and I felt as if I could start doing things in a new way, and it would be easier for me to get that job that I was searching for. I even contacted a friend who was working at one of the biggest hotels in the city and after I told her about  the difficulty I was having. She said she would ask her manager if there were any vacancies at that hotel.
 
 
It was not long after my friend decided to assist me, that I was called for an interview and even though the job I got was not the one I wanted. I took it anyway, I thought it would be good for me to start earning and getting the well needed experience, as I continue  searching for my ideal job. 
 
And now I know that I should not try to do everything on my own at all times. As it is good to get help and work with others to achieve our goals. And a situation might seem to be impossible until you change the way you try to handle the problem. As small changes can bring big rewards, and we can avoid a lot of stress when we follow good advice.
