Getting fired is scary. It feels like the end of the world. To have someone judge the totality of your work and find you wanting…that hurts.
When I lost my job, it really hurt my feelings.
But we have a choice in those moments; we can wither and die are we can rise from the ashes like a phoenix.
The Math of Employment
Your boss will always pay you less money than you are worth. If you generate $100 in profit, your boss will pay you $90 or less. Your boss is not there to break even or take a loss. You are an investment and your company is always looking for ways to mazimise their profits.
No matter what you do or where you work, if you have a boss you are paid less than you are worth.
Controlled by Fear
We are terrified that if we lose our jobs that we won't be able to handle it. We won't make our bills, we'll never find another job and that the world will collapse.
As I talked about in the episode about depression, emotions are just thoughts. Fear is an emotion. It only has the power you grant it.
Look at your life. How many hardships and challenges have you overcome? You have already proven you can handle things you never imagined. You are tough enough.
