You are listening to Trinity employments A-player matchmaker podcast, storing your host and the cofounder of Trinity employment specialists, Cory Minter. Hello,
And welcome back to the A-player matchmakers, where we’re always trying to find different ways to add value to job seekers and employers. And the title of this podcast is inspirational career ideas, and I’m coming. I’m coming at that from inspirational quotes from that is related to careers. One of the biggest problems that I see in fact, I just interviewed two people today and I rarely ever interview people are companies busting at the seams and I have a recruiter out. So I’m trying to step in and help our recruiters out in every one that I’ve met with every one for your Tulsa Medical Staffing. So far, of course, there’s only two. They have no idea what they want to do. And when you ask them, they don’t even know how to get there. And this is so counter intuitive to what you need to do to be able to get where you need to be.
Well as a staffing firm here in Tulsa, our job is to really help people to be able to find what it is that they really truly want to do. One of the very first quotes that I read in the very, in the, uh, in, in our last podcast was, um, choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Well, you’re never going to find that when you just take whatever is offered to you, and when you come in and begin to interview and you have zero clue what you would want to do in life now. I mean, I don’t want to shame these people. I was, I was just like this with our Tulsa Medical Staffing. When I was their age, I guarantee you, I was, I struggled so much trying to figure out what I was supposed to do, but I’d given it very little thought in there for about five years.
I just took whatever job was offered to me the entire time I was trying to apply at a staffing firm, no one would interview me. And so finally, when I was working in a job for about four or five years, and they were asking me to do something that was flat out illegal, and they’re now the federal government shut them down for it will. Um, I was forced in somebody called me and asked if I could play somebody with some experience. And I said, yeah, I just started this company. And I was forced to go and do what I’d always wanted to do. And which is why I own Trinity right now. And I think a lot of people really almost need to be forced in that way, but, but it’s easier to just think about it and think it through so that, uh, so the Lord doesn’t have to move you as harshly as he moved me this next, uh, this next quote comes from, uh, Catherine Whitehorn.
It says, find out what you like doing best and get someone to pay you for doing it. And that’s what I ended up having to do. Um, but you can really think about what it is that you really want to do. I asked each one of these individuals and in a short amount of time, um, the, the last person I just met, I said, what is it that you really want to do? And she’s like, you know, I just loved theater arts. And I just went online, looked for theater, arts type job, or, you know, administrative roles in theater arts. And there was an opportunity there, but she had never thought to just go and even look what she was looking for. So it’s really important to just get a clear vision of what it is that you want to become. And that really helps people get on the right track.
Um, Michael Jordan gave a really great quote. You many people have heard this before and it goes like this I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games, 26 times. I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and I missed I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that’s why I succeed. Um, struggle takes you to a place in a good way at the end that you never thought you would be if you handled the struggle properly for your next Tulsa Medical Staffing. So Michael Jordan, I read one of his books and I, I believe that if I knew him at least back in his playing days, I don’t know that I would like him. I don’t, I don’t know about right now, but there, there was just some ethical character issues there that we would probably not get along very well, but I do admire his insatiable desire to win.
And it’s, it’s fascinating. Um, but one, one of the things that Michael Jordan always, always wanted, he wanted the ball. He wanted a chance. He was always throwing his name in the hat. You know, when, when I was talking to, uh, the, uh, the, the lady that I interviewed today, and I asked her about what it is that she would want to go do really? And she mentioned, well, I would really love in theater arts will. Why not throw your name in the hat for that? Why not at least go after it? It’s just like Michael Jordan. He just wanted the ball. Just give me a chance. Give me, I want, I want to take a shot and successful people. There’s this element or this time period where it’s so important that you just ask for the ball, or you throw your name in the hat, but you you’re going to take a risk.
I’ve I’ve learned that every entrepreneur has, this has this critical moment. And it’s very much like jumping off the nest for the first time as a burden. You see if you can fly. Sometimes the mother has to push the baby bird out because the baby bird doesn’t want to do that, but there’s no way you can learn how to fly unless you get pushed out of the nest. That’s how an Eagle does it. They learned by getting pushed out of a nest it’s way up high. And that’s just a part of success. Number six. Um, the best way to predict the future is to create it for your Tulsa Medical Staffing. There’s a, you know, this is more of a pop culture type of a saying, but it says, create your own luck. That’s what, that’s what, uh, Abraham Lincoln is saying. Their hard work creates just great luck. Sometimes.
Now, sometimes you’re going to run into some bad luck, but if you just work hard, that’s the best way to predict success. It’s just to create it and work your way towards it. I used to say, when, whenever I was working in Trinity, that you would just have to your scalp to force it to happen. And sometimes that’s what it requires to do this week. We were recruiter down and we had more job boarders than we ever had. I told our team, I said, listen, we’re going to get this done. We just are going to, we are going to, will it to happen. We are going to put so much effort into it that it’s just going to happen. And when we do that, you are going to be so proud of yourself. Guess what’s going on here, man? Like, everybody’s happy. Everybody’s joking around.
We’ve worked harder than we’ve worked in. Who knows how long because of this COVID thing. But people are so proud of themselves. Has it been hard? Oh yeah. Oh yeah. But we created our future. We wanted something good. We worked for it. We created it. But what would have happened if we would have just been like, well, it’s too much, you know, we don’t we’re, we can’t really ever, we’ve never, ever done that before. So I don’t know. You know we have the best Tulsa Medical Staffing, that just doesn’t work. It doesn’t work. I was traveling in the flight. I had 30 minutes to get to my flight through Denver airport and there’s just no way I was going to make it. And I went to the wrong gate and man, they’ve already closed the door and I there for a split second I’d given up and my friend called me, said, man, hurry up.
I’ve talked her into giving you five minutes. I had to go to a different gate on a different train, jumped to a train get, and I made it to the flight, but I kept thinking men had, I just kept in that mindset. I would have never gotten there. That’s what Abraham Lincoln is saying. Listen, if Trinity can help you in any way with your, with your career, just trying to find the right career path.
