Since starting work as a security consultant, I have worked hard to learn about alarm systems, company procedures, and sales tactics. I was experiencing information overload for the first couple of weeks. All the while, I wanted to get into the field to sell some alarm systems. My first solo flight was a breeze. I thought that this was going to be an easy job. I should have tossed that one out the window. On the next few calls, I bombed. No sales. And my confidence was shaken.

But, no experience should be wasted. Learning new stuff can be used in more than one place! God does not waste any experience. When you find yourself doing something new, relax and enjoy the ride. Just learn and grow from it!
