Lost my job today

Feb 26, 2009 - 5 comments

I lost my job today, I am not surprised. This wasnt my fault, but I can't fight it anymore. i was off $20. I found it unerneath all of my other $20s. I can't fight it, my word against theres. I didn't want to believe that I was set up, but the way it was in there, I believe I coudlve been. Oh well. Sigh. Everything happens for a reason, and I am a true believer this happened because I am supposed to find something new. REtail is not for everyone;)

Sorry that you lost your job today but as you say, sometimes it is a blessing in disguise.  When one door is closed, many windows of opportunity are open.  There is much work at home opportunities available to anyone that wants to earn an income form home.  In many cases it beats travelling in traffic every day, worrying about gas prices or even having to get up and go out to work.  You can even become your own business owner.  The advantage of being a business owner is great tax write-offs which gives you a much bigger income tax return.  Owning a business from home allows you to write off portions of your electricity, your mortgage or rent, your water bills and so much more like groceries and travel expenses.  You can use you SS# or apply for a tax ID.  It is so simple.  

Vitamins for the Mind by Jim Rohn

Personal Responsibility

"Don't become a victim of yourself. Forget about the thief waiting in the alley; what about the thief in your mind?

It is not what happens that determines the major part of your future. What happens happens to us all. It is what you do about what happens that counts.

You say, "The country is messed up." That's like cursing the soil and the seed and the sunshine and the rain, which is all you've got. Don't curse all you've got. When you get your own planet, you can rearrange this whole deal. This one you've got to take like it comes.

Walk away from the 97% crowd. Don't use their excuses. Take charge of your own life.

Take advice, but not orders. Only give yourself orders. Abraham Lincoln once said, "Since I will be no one's slave, I will be no one's master."

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of. You don't have charge of the constellations, but you do have charge of whether you read, develop new skills, and take new classes.

Your paycheck is not your employer's responsibility; it's your responsibility. Your employer has no control over your value, but you do."

There are also companies that will pay you to refer people to their site.   First you sign up for FREE and refer as many people as you can to the site.  If they purchase something, you get PAID.  Sometimes it just requires you to buy something that you would normally shop for anyway.  As John Rohn says, your paycheck is not your employer responsibility, it is yours.  I understood that when I was laid off 5 years ago and then made a vow to own my life.  

Good luck.  This is your time.  If you are stressed, this is actually a time to take walks and exercise to keep a healthy mind and body.
