I was forced to quit from my job at a MNC because the manager didn't wanted me to be there. She was trying to prove me dull all the time and control me at personal level. Always interfering and commenting on my personal stuff, which was obviously neither part of her job responsibilities nor under her managerial control. Only reason is that I never flattered her or anyone, and was restrictive towards such things. #termination #unemployment #jobsearch #forcedlayoff

I'm telling you the truth... (Read Without Procrastination.)

Many people have failed drastically before blinking an eye. Why? They didn't pin-point specific characteristics that exist in special caliber of people.

Don't let this happen to you in 2023.

Characteristics are those "crazy" attributes that distinguish and drives ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

For example, extraordinary people can...

  • Visualize the house built, even if it's standing on stilts, in it's infancy stage.
  • Feel the sensation, before the project, process and preparation.
  • Seize the end results, in lieu of unexpected, and insane insults, from other people.
  • Touch the "coat-tail" of expectation, from a "silly" mindset called imagination.
  • Declare the plane can fly, without questioning The Wright Brothers reasons or why?

Listen, successful people know, "if they can see it in their mind's eye, they can hold on their hands as it comes to fruition."

Be encouraged to "form your team, to forge your dream" then everything else will fall-in-place for you.

I Believe You Can...!

I'm telling you the truth...

You have to "Stop Looking Down and Start Looking Up" and believe...IT'S ON THE WAY!!

  • When you want sunlight, you have to look upward. Right?
  • When you want the rain, you have to look upward. Right?
  • When you want the moonlight, you have to look upward. Right?
  • When you simply want to pass through a yellow light, without a traffic violation. You have to look upward. Right?

Case and Point: You have to stop looking down for the small things, and start looking up for the greater things in life. Believing, yes...It's On The Way!!

Your actions can cause everything else to fall-in-place for you. (See illustration below.)

I Believe You Can...!

I recently worked for a company that paid for my insurance license. Great!! No...about 3 days into the position I was sitting at my desk taking in some riveting insurance facts on Medicare and picked up my vape and took a drag. I recently quit smoking cigarettes and I am work from home. I was immediately pulled into another break out room and reprimanded. I apologized and I thought that was the end of it. Imagine my surprise when while going through my work emailsi received a nasty gram from the same supervisor threatening my future with this company. I took this email to her supervisor who stated she was out of line for sending the email in the first place and seeing as how we were never told about this new rule surrounding the vaping incident please allow her to handle it at her level. Which meant "Dont go any higher up the chain". About a week later the big boss pulls me into yet another break out session. Says something about my back ground came back and I didnt disclose it first. BS. They fired me on the spot. I applied for unemployment. denied... two weeks later I get an exit interview request asking why I had abandoned my job... Now at least i know why I was denied unemployment. I'm still fighting for it though. Sitel is the name of that company #termination #unemployment #jobsearch

Looking for new opportunities

They have to pay you. It’s not your problem for their mistake. I would send a certified letter asking for my payment immediately. If no response go to the Labor Board. They have to pay you

I'm telling you the truth...(Read Without Fail.)

Listen carefully my friends, because this can change your perspective in life..!

Once a year you have a chance to win the Super Bowl Championship, or you go HOME. Point blank, no questions asked.

So, the ball is on the 1 - yard line, and as it appears, opposition stands in your way. Perhaps, you're more nervous than usual because the coach is telling you..."get the stinken ball across the 1 - yard line so we can win this game." That's it, Just do it. Please..!

Folks, let's agree on one thing: If you can't get the ball across the 1 - yard line, REGARDLESS of the opposition, someone may ask. Do you really know how to play the game?

The same is true when applying for jobs. If you KNOW how to play the game you can easily get the "stinken ball" across the 1 - yard line to win the game, and get the job! Right?

Thousands of people are struggling with...How to apply for jobs? Or simply play the game to win and get the job.

Ask Yourself: 1) Are you a contender or pretender? 2) Are you competing or completing? 3) Are you betting or are you setting... things in-place? 4) Are you playing the game or changing the game.

Winning the Super Bowl Championship happens once a year, NOT twice. Likewise, getting that job you may only get one hike as well.

I Believe You Can...!

I'm telling you the truth... (Must Read Without Before Bedtime.)

More than often, we can have this indescribable sensation of a thought just running through our brain, telling us...it's possible, it's possible! Right?

Yet, we walk away without making minor changes in our life. Changes that could have turned ugly doubts into beautiful dreams. But we didn't try! Why do we do that?

I'm offering you this life-saving statement that I tell others on Zoom. Please, don't let this happen to YOU!

Be willing to make those small minor changes in your life. This can cause things to turnaround in your favor!

Then, certain things, "it will come through for you." If you only try.

I Believe You Can...!

you have done your time, so no probation or parole, you can have your record expunged, it will take an attorney and some cash, i dont know about the governor letter, but it can come off. as far as work, im going through the same thing, just be upfront and honest, besides construction jobs usually pay more.

I'm telling you the truth...(Read w/o Failure.)

Yes, the majority of people we know (including ourselves) have lived life for many years, like an empty paper bag. Some people say..."they have nothing inside to give."

You see, we've worked so long and hard; passed through difficult times; sometimes poor taste in relationships; mismanaged marriages, frivolous friendships; and heck..! No one appreciated your sacrifices.

Listen, it wasn't your fault and it would take too long to explain the "science of life."

However, know this ONE truth..."your life is NOT an empty bag" with nothing meaningful inside.

(As illustrated below) you have to learn, how putting the right things in your bag of life changes your outcomes.

Then, everything else you desire on life starts to fall-in-place for YOU.

I Believe You Can...!
