Were You Just Laid off?? Now What?!?

Were you just laid off from your job?

One small consolation is – you’re not alone. This is happening worldwide at an alarming rate. But even though it’s happening to so many people; it is still a shock to actually here those words, “We’re letting you go.” After you hear this your next thought it – now what?

Here’s the answer to that question:

You are more in control than you think. Obviously you did not create the weak economy leading to this event. BUT – you ARE in total control of how you respond to that event. Here’s how that works: Suppose you get depressed and just give up. Your response would obviously create a negative reality in your life.

But what if you instead respond by “taking the tiger by the tail” and start a new business on the web, or become a consultant in your field of specialization. You have then created an entirely different reality in response to the exact same event.

Turn your frustration into a motivator to start your search for your ideal career. You’ll create a whole new reality for yourself that will allow you to move forward, instead of remaining stuck where you are.

You may find that you are ready to switch gears completely.  You may wonder, am I really ready for a career transition? How can I best prepare myself for a change? But even before you delve into the components of a satisfying career, it helps immensely to cultivate a healthy and positive mental outlook. People who are successful at making a change are the ones who are willing to overcome their fears, doubts and insecurities in order to make it happen. You too, can be one of these people.
