When One Door Closes, Another Opens

Experiencing a layoff or getting fired can be a punch in the gut, especially if you didn’t see it coming. It is hard not to feel defeated and lose self-confidence. In many cases, it can take time to stop going over and over every detail in your head.

While I believe that you can learn something about yourself from every experience, the best thing you can do in these instances is to find a way to let it go. Losing your job is an opportunity to find something even better. It doesn’t matter that it wasn’t your choice. It’s now an open door that you get to walk through. Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you define your self-worth.

Make a list of all the things you’re good at and why you would make an awesome employee for a new company. Read through it every day and remind yourself that you are destined for greatness!
