So, I’ve had Statement of Purpose format’s that have gotten responses super fast and literally had the best content, and others that I’ve pushed and pushed and it’s taken months to get a response. I still have some that I’m working on to adjust and reword to get responses, and this last week I had a big victory after months of working on one. She reached out to me yesterday to let me know that she had received my application and wanted to meet with me. May not sound like much but I think I have found what it takes. You have to be diligent and keep moving otherwise it get’s left behind.
In this case I’ve learned that things aren’t always as they seem. I’ve done all of my due diligence and found what I thought would be super easy wasn’t at all but I made it. It’s funny because other times I’ve tried I thought it would be super difficult and ended up getting a response almost immediately. Sometimes it doesn’t make any sense at all, but I do know one thing for sure – if i have enough time I can get a response anywhere I want in the World. I definitely don’t have as many problems finding low hanging fruit now, but it’s taken a ton of trial and error to get that knowledge.
Bottom line, you have the power to connect with anyone from thin air anywhere in the world. DO YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH POWER THAT GIVES YOU? Go get em! Keep up the good work and don’t be hard on yourself. Sometimes it’s just too random to take it personal. I know you can write an amazing Statement of Purpose if you put your mind to it. Peace.
