People can discard you but not your brain

We have been hearing a lot about people leaving organisations after a long stint. Many leave voluntarily and some involuntarily. When someone is laid off, they are just letting you go, taking away your job but not your intellectual capability. Believe that your strengths are unique and your brain power could much more fabulous work for another organisation or for your own start-up. Organisations always say that a lay-off is a business decision because it was a bad management goof-up at the first place. You may have been a high performer, yet business units get closed, offices get closed, cost cuts happen or company is under an acquisition.

Involuntary separation pains you but it gives you resilience, an opportunity to work on weak spots in you and turns you a stronger individual. There is no social stigma that you need to be afraid of and there is no need to fear that your near and dear ones will leave you high & dry. On the contrary it lets you to know who your true friends and connections are, for they will stay with you long.

Focus and perseverance land you in a better job or work. Who knows, you may choose to pursue your passion that may not reward you much but provides you with a deep satisfaction and a happy frame of mind.
