Get Over Your Fear of Being Fired


Robby

Losing your job for doing a good job is the among the best things that could ever happen to you.

That might sound crazy at first. Nobody wants to lose their job, right?

But in actuality, losing a job can be tremendously freeing—especially if you’re getting fired AFTER doing the right thing.

Consider this example which I recently came across. A friend of mine had a job for a few years, and in the evening—on her own time on her own computer—she was casually looking through other job postings. She had mentioned this to a friend, who accidentally let it slip out online.

Her boss heard about this and fired her on the spot.

This is a GREAT example of when it’s a relief to be fired. My friend wasn’t doing anything wrong. In fact, she wasn’t looking seriously because she wanted a new job, but rather because she was thinking about suggesting that the company hire someone new. She wanted to research what other job postings looked like before bringing up the idea to her boss!

Getting fired might seem like a set back, but it helps put things in perspective. If you’re doing your job well and you lose it, that’s just proof that the job might not have been that great in the first place.

Consider expanding your worldview. Get over your fear of being fired. Accept that all jobs are temporary, and the future is about what you choose to do next.
