Glass Half Full

Yeah, layoffs suck. And no one feels good about them. Especially those who are fired.

A colleague of mine wrote me an email saying: "This is the first time this has happened to me and it just feels weird. It is awkward, stressful and anxiety ridden."

Amen to that.

However, I replied: "But it's also...Awesome, Exciting, and Opportunity-Filled. It's all in how you look at it."

Getting terminated is a big kick in your self-esteem. It hurts. But you can't stay down.

Your outlook has to be upbeat, positive, and focused on the future.

You gotta believe in yourself.
