The Gold in Being Fired.

We have another story of someone being fired and how he had to adjust his thinking and life instantly.Take a look at this:
“As a contractor in the IT department at a large oil and gas firm, I worked with a group of nine contractors. In January, we got notification that we needed to be reduced by 30 per cent and they were also outsourcing the work we did to another country.

I began looking for work immediately, and also put my house on the market in case I could not find work. My wife was at home with our two young children because of the high toll of daycare, both financially and mentally.

I have never gone more than two weeks in my life without work, but finding IT work in Calgary became close to impossible. After four months of beating the bushes and pulling every string I had at my disposal, I decided to look outside of Alberta and managed to drum up two interviews in Vancouver in May. I was offered both positions and took the most favourable.

In the interim, my house in Airdrie sold at a small loss after 45 days on the market.(Painful. Really, painful.)

The job I have now is contract as well, but I hope to turn it into something permanent. (Hmmm… Really?) I have many friends out of work, so I count myself lucky, but after 13 years in Alberta, where my kids were born and being raised, it was a very hard pill to swallow.”

Let’s not get too far:

Losing your job will make YOU HAVE SENSE INSTANTLY. Suddenly, you start thinking about your life afresh (another thing that does this is salary cut). And boy, you need it. You never did it because you always thought about how good and big that organization is.

Mind you, this is not about bad organizations. If I had an organization during this pandemic, I might definitely take same measure if need be.

Yes, I will.

See these lines in the stories:

“We had been sitting on eggshells for a year while being told by our managers that we were safe. The managers were the first to go.” (I’m just laughing myself here… lol)”

What about this?

“… I have many friends out of work, so I count myself lucky, but after 13 years in Alberta, where my kids were born and being raised, it was a very hard pill to swallow.”

Brother, It is a hard one.

Thus, losing that job might enable you to finally open your thinking faculty. Although, they’ve been there all the while. You perhaps have not been pushed to a point where you use it the way you are forced to use it now.

If you think I’m insulting you, you will not see the big picture. But if you calm down and look at what I’m saying, you will have a miracle in less than 3 months.

The question is:

  • Will you allow yourself think about you?
  • Will you think and not worry?

Will you allow wisdom talk with you now

  • ?

The book of Proverbs, from the Bible, says that wisdom is in the street shouting but lots of persons are not listening.

We’re jumping up and down. Receiving salary and staying cool under air-conditoned offices.

Are these things bad?

Again, no. They’re good. But like me, don’t allow laying off or absence of salary open your sense.

You can stop crying now. And begin to get the insight this circumstance will teach you. If you don’t have a diary where you write your thoughts, this is the best time to have one.

If you don’t have a diary where you write your thoughts, this is the best time to have one.

I’ve been in shambles so I know what it feels like.

Ideas will be coming to you now. Write them down.

The aim of this material is to get you mad enough, positively, to look in the right direction and begin to act and own your life again.

Truly, there’s gold in being fired.
