I've been fired! Day 2

Wednesday, September 30, 2009 ·


The aftermath of being fired can start to set in a day or two after the main event. I'm focusing on all of the positive things that come to mind. Like, it's a gorgeous blue-skied day out there, and I'm not stuck in a cubicle, oblivious. I'm still sitting at a computer, but it's my computer, and I'm working on MY business.

My business partner and I planned a big meeting for tomorrow. We planned it last week, got the room reserved, checked our slide shows and music mix, printed out fliers and put in motion all of the little details that ensure a successful meeting.

I was planning on taking the day off anyway, to really focus on the meeting, but now I have a whole extra day to get things in order. Also, it's not a huge, late-night push to get it all ready, so I'll be well-rested and full of genuine enthusiasm tomorrow.

Everything is working out for the best. I feel great! I envision a large turnout for our meeting. We have a powerful slide show, and great pre- and post-meeting activities. We did a run through last week, so both my partner and I know exactly what to do at every step of the meeting. I've had time to think everything through and pick up last minute oversights that might have involved some fancy footwork if they'd gone unnoticed.

I am so thankful that I've been working on my business part time, so it's there for me to step into full time when I really needed it. I knew I would be building my business full time at some point, I just hadn't planned on it being now. But just like starting a family, there's not often the perfect time. Sometimes you just have to jump and swim as hard as you can.

I am surrounded by supportive, positive people; I have everything I need for tomorrow's meeting, including a great business partner. We've been working together almost a year now, so we really know each other's style and strengths. We're a good team, and we're so lucky to be in this together.

She still has her full time job, and my lay off scared her a bit, but that just motivates both of us to make every moment successful, positive, and full of focused activity and fun.

I keep going back to the fact that it is so important to have something that you can fall back on and build on your own, because corporations are crumbling all around us. Be ready for when it hits you, and your life will blossom instead of collapse. You can do it! I'll show you how, because, whew, I've been there.

Wow, Marilyn. I love your attitude. It makes sense to look at everything from the perspective that you've chosen. I really commend you.

I'm involved in MLM, also, and you're right. It's good knowing it's there. However, I've decided to put in a super extra effort in the next 90 days to really make it happen. So, even though they are working me hard at work. I've scheduled 3 hours a day to work the business. It's not easy, but I know it will be worth it.

I'm routing for you rising to the top amidst the current circumstances. You can and will do it!
