Everything will work out for the best. Have the faith that losing your job is a necessary step in your life’s plan. When you have faith that everything will be okay and that this situation is just a part of your overall life's plan, you can cope much better with your job loss. Often, in life we find ourselves lulled into a level of complacency, even when we are not fully satisfied with our quality of life. When change is forced upon us, more times than not, the end result is positive and takes our lives to new heights; especially with a job loss.
It is rare we lose jobs where that job was both an ideal fit and a true win-win for both us and the company. Most times, when a position is eliminated, it is because the value proposition for both sides just wasn't where it used to be. While in the thick of the immediate emotions of losing a job, this result may be hard to see. However, trust there truly is a much better job ahead for you.
Losing a job also allows you to revisit what is truly important in your life
Many people have found that upon losing their jobs, they were able to spend tremendous quality time with their families. Due to the long hours of the job and hectic travel schedules, many of them lost touch with their friends and families. Consequently, your time in transition can really be a blessing with the quality time you now have.
Rarely do people remember the mundane, day-to-day activities from their previous jobs. But, they sure do remember many of the wonderful days spent with families and friends. Finally, they are able to do some things they were not able to do while stuck in a daily rut. Time is one of the most valuable commodities we have on earth. Losing a job can be a blessing of time. Certainly, you want to find another job. But, balance the time spent doing that with time spent on what is really important in your life.
Hardly anyone in their final days of life thinks to themselves… “Gosh, I wish I had worked harder for XYZ Company.” No, instead more people have regrets such as: “I wish I had spent more time with my family” or “I wish I had enjoyed life more when I was younger."
With 20/20 hindsight, things often make sense
Look back at your life. Think about the major events, both positive and negative. Then, look to the impact those events had. Odds are that each major event you experienced in your life had a reason or a life lesson to it.
As we discussed, when you have the faith that everything happens for a reason, you don’t have to get upset at yourself for getting fired. You don’t have to get depressed because you were laid off. It is supposed to be this way. It is the universe’s way of cleansing you and allowing you to expand your life and your horizons.
You are a great person! You will continue to achieve tremendous success. Have faith that everything will work out for the best and it will. Expectations are a powerful thing. If you expect that everything will work out, it will. If you expect everything is going to go downhill and life as you know it is doomed, then that will be your outcome. Choose success. Expect success. Have faith in your ability to succeed and you will.
