Developer Options Not Showing On Google Nexus 7 Android Version 4.2.1 Build JPO40D

I just started getting a little time to play around with my new Google Nexus 7 32GB tablet and so far I am loving it. It will be the first Android device that I have spent much time on so its pretty exciting! I love the size of the Nexus 7 because it still fits in my pocket and will be perfect to read or watch movies while flying around the country. Obviously the first thing I wanted to do was root the Nexus 7 so I could have full control of it but the Developer Options setting was missing from my Android 4.2.1 Settings screen. Below I show an image of my default Android Settings screen and explain how to display the Developer Options menu item in Settings.
