Twitter socialite, 9PinkDiamonds, reveals how to recover after losing a job in a bad economy...How to Bounce Back" offers more than just tips and advice. September 12, 2012
Twitter socialite, who calls herself a "human alarm clock" has released a new ebook with a shocking new perspective on the aftermath of getting fired or laid off from a job. Here's an excerpt from the book:
You woke up this morning and thought to yourself, “It’s a good day.” You only hit the snooze button twice. Although you aren't that enthused about going to work, it's Wednesday (hump day) and you only have 2 more days till the weekend. Woo Hoo! (Classic rat race thinking, by the way.
While putting your belongings away, your boss asks if s/he can see you in his/her office. Blithely unaware of anything, since you just commuted an hour or more in traffic, making it to work just in time, you proceed into his/her office with a pungent smile. “Yes sir/ma’am?” S/he tells you, "You’re fired. We no longer require your services. That is all." And poof! It feels like your world crumbled. Sure, it was a crappy job that you didn’t like, but you were making a living, albeit barely. Sound vaguely familiar?
I'm going to guess that most of us have lost a job in either one way or another. Either by being smart and quitting or getting fired. You're cleaning out your desk, barely holding back your tears. Teary-eyed, wondering what the hell you're going to do next. It’s traumatizing but on top of that, you have to tell your wife, with a new baby, or tell hubby he’s now going to have to carry the household. Or worse, you’re a single mom or dad who was living paycheck to paycheck with very little saved up. (Luckily, you kept enough to buy this book. Smart investment.)
Most employed people, unfortunately, never get around to saving. Their so-called “cash stash” hidden in a lock box under the bed only contained a piece of paper with “add cash here” written on it. My girlfriend’s rock solid plan was a note on her fridge to have a rock solid retirement plan. She eventually threw it away after the ink disintegrated, just like transaction details on a retail store receipt. You are not alone.
You’ll be okay. Being fired, though you may not see it now, is a blessing in disguise. I'm sure it's God's way of saying, "You know what? You've endured your asshole of a boss for long enough. You've slaved for long enough. I feel good. This is the best day of my life!!!!” Get excited. You can now design your own life instead of someone else designing it for you.
The time is now for you to take control of your life. This is your opportunity to exit the rat race from the many who have grown accustomed to it. Resist that complacency and take the plunge into a world filled with endless possibilities, prosperity, abundance and freedom...
