It can come completely out of the blue, an unexpected conversation that can stop you in your tracks, potentially bringing on feelings of stress, anger, vulnerability and fear for the future. Being told that your job is at risk, that you may have to re-apply for it or finding out that you are losing it altogether can be a shock and seem unfair at the time but once the news has sunk in, it’s good to calm your mind so that you can put everything into perspective and plan your way forward.
Read these 5 reassuring ways to help you on the way to your new career.
1. Don’t look back in anger.
Give yourself a minimum of three days before you make any decisions about your future. Take this time to allow any feelings of anger and frustration to subside, logic and reason will come easier. When you are going through a difficult time be kind to yourself, allow yourself to breathe, relax and clear your thoughts. Get outside, go for a walk to the beach, take time to pursue activities you enjoy and meditate. There are many meditations out there to choose from including the extremely effective Meditation on Twin Hearts which has been scientifically proven to rapidly reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, it induces an inner calm and helps you to gain mental clarity. High profile American entrepreneur and life business strategist Tony Robbins recognises the impact of the Twin Hearts meditation and now incorporates it into his global events.
Why do you do the job that you do?
What do you love about it?
What do you dislike about it?
Take time to really think it through. Be honest and ask yourself if this is the job of your dreams or perhaps you were just coasting along, fearful to take the leap on to something bigger and better. Perhaps you have always wanted to start a new business but couldn’t find the courage to leave your job and make the change. Having the decision taken out of your hands can be a great opportunity to finally go in another direction.
