Who Has Ever Died Because They Were Fired?

Life throws us off at times. It’s filled with surprises that knocks us off our feet. That burst our dreams, and Fry our goals so they seem unreachable.

 Who has ever died because they were fired? Being fired customarily means being let go from your job for cause, because you underperformed or did something contrary to policies. Bad as it is …no one. Some may ‘die’ because of their reaction to the devastating news that their job was outsourced, restructured, replaced. But the loss of a job has never ‘killed’ anyone.

Life throws us off at times. It’s filled with surprises that knocks us off our feet…that bursts the Spike of our dreams, and Fry our goals so they seem unreachable. But it is what we do with the hand that’s given to you that counts.

3 Directions. Which One Are You?

John Maxwell speaks about the 3 kinds of people when it comes to directions in life. People who Don’t Know…

Melanie is at a crossroads in life. She graduated college, got a job and has been working ‘just because‘.

David has worked as a senior manager for over 10 years but over the past 3 years he has been dreaming of more. His sense of purpose has been lost. He feels he is drifting.

It’s been 4 years since Carol lost her job due to restructuring. Since then she has worked odd jobs, has big dreams but through fear hesitates to take the step to accomplish her goals.

Mark dreamed of his passion. Took the steps to achieve and now enjoys the benefits of his entrepreneurial ventures. Still he seeks more ways to learn, develop his skills, and grow.

We have all been there. Life’s crossroads beckons times of reflection pushing us to search deep within our souls to find out if there’s more to life. We ponder about the next step. Where should we go? What should we do? How should we do it? or should we do it at all. John Maxwell speaks about the 3 kinds of people when it comes to Viable directions in life. These are:

3 Kinds of People in Pursuit of Goals

1.People Who Don’t Know what they would like to do.

These people are confused. They dabble, drift, with no sense of direction. If they grow, it is without focus.

2. People who Know what they would like to do but Don’t do it

These people are frustrated. They worry, they fear. They want to step out but are afraid they won’t be able to take care of their responsibilities. Sometimes they are not willing to pay the price to learn, grow, and move closer to their dream. Sadly, these people also miss out on reaching their potential.

3. People who know what they would like to do and do it.

These people are fulfilled. They possess a strong sense of passion, they achieve their purpose, they grow, they learn, they develop. As they strive for more we Chuckle thinking they are perfect but they know better as they seek continuous development.

Goal: For This I am Pleased…

Who in their right mind can say that they are Pleased when challenges come their way? Very few persons. But challenges help us grow. It is our attitude to the challenges that help us survive a failing business, life events, careers, educational pursuits, natural disasters, tragedies, and more.

Recently, I shared the story of Nick Vujicic who was born without arms and legs, yet not only has he survived, he is now a worldwide successful motivational speaker.

Record it…

Living the life you have always dreamed of is not difficult. It happens with planning, effort, and the ability to go on …to never give up even when things go wrong. It happens when you do what you have always wanted to even when you’re afraid. Fear often stops us in our tracks. Fear makes us get stuck… sometimes even for years, and sadly some even pass without getting past what held them back.

All That Glitters…

All that Glitters is not gold. It’s a common saying that means things are not all that they appear to be. It’s an important facet to consider when making decisions. So be sure to check out:

  • The new job and corporate culture before you sign your acceptance.
  • Get to know your partner before you marry…yikes!  (habits, likes, dislikes, meet-the-parents, past experiences, plans for the future…do they include you)?
  • Investigate. Do a house inspection before purchase.
  • Research before you relocate
  • Read the reviews before buying the product (including return policy).
  • Research and/or  visit college before deciding to go.
  • Know the genre before you write.
  • Know the Joneses before you try to keep up

These are just a few examples to what could be a very long list. So do your background checks before making life changing decisions. Some mistakes can be avoided.

Cheers!

The Color Yellow…

The color Yellow enhances vision, builds confidence

Beautiful, serene, inviting. The color yellow represents youth, fun, sunshine, optimism, and other happy feelings. On the other hand it also means jealousy, cowardice, and deceit.

The color Yellow activates memory, encourages communication, enhances vision, builds confidence, and stimulates the nervous system. Through its bright effect, the color yellow calls attention and when combined with black illuminates readability from distances. Hence its use on school buses, traffic signs, and more.

The color yellow tugs at the heart depicting welcome home to loved ones afar.

So today if you’re feeling blue as an entrepreneur, lack of growth at a career endeavor, of if you are at a transition point in your life, stand tall. Focus on the positive. Talk with a friend or coach. Believing for the best encourages us to achieve our goals, dreams, and aspirations. It’s that Automatic.

Cheers!
