You’re Fired

You're Fired“You’re fired!”…..

I have heard that several times…

And guess what…

It was always for the best.

Thousands of CEO’s and thousands of maintenance men have been fired for all kinds of reasons…. Many unfair… many because of political whispers from the insecure… get it?

What is all the fuss?

Come on… it will be replaced by the next crisis that is not a crisis…

Aren’t soldier’s sacrifices more newsworthy?

Where is all the uproar about child abuse?? Single parent families?

The abuse of women in many other cultures is ignored. Let’s fire some of those leaders.

Getting fired hurts the pride…. But men get on with getting on…

Getting fired should get one fired up!

Point your gun to the heavens and get fired Up.

  1. How are you doing? I hope that you and yours are all well.

    Apologies I’ve been out of touch of late, but I wanted to say a huge thank you for your very timely email, blog 1044 “You’re Fired”.
    With the head of the FBI being fired by President Trump, I’m sure that it acted as a catalyst for the inspiration behind your piece, however your email arrived in the middle of a some difficulty with the company I’d been working for, effecting a “constructive dismissal”, and me finding myself out of work.

    I suppose that my first reaction to being made redundant was anger, then despondency and then ultimately stress at the situation; out of work, no options on the table and the clock ticking in terms of the next round of monthly bills and family commitments.
    It was then, at my lowest point that your email arrived.

    And do you know what? Everything that you said rang true.
    I read, and re-read, and re-read your post again. Yes, every time I’d been fired, laid off, made redundant or moved on it had always been for the best in the long run, and this time was going to be no different. In my heart of hearts, I didn’t enjoy the job and probably wanted to leave anyway if a better option came up. That helped change my attitude from negative to positive and then I was able to put everything into perspective. It wasn’t a major crisis at all, and like you said, I just needed to get fired up, and find another job.

    I had a couple of interviews almost immediately, but neither ticked all the right boxes. But instead of being negative I read your post again, got fired up again, and spent my time constructively with calls and emails to my industry contacts.

    It paid off. Another handful of interviews and by the end of last week I actually had the pick of 3 good opportunities. I start my new job 1st June… thanks to you and your inspired words.
    Thank you Chris. Continue to be the great inspiration and conduit from the heavens that you are.

    God bless.
