How to start again with a positive mindset after you get fired?
Whatever the reason, when you lose your job unexpectedly you might find yourself in a tricky situation. Your finances, your daily routine and your confidence might suffer for a while but try to see the positive.
Don’t let one lost opportunity be the end of your journey. You might not always achieve what you want but remember, when one door closes another one opens. So make sure you don’t give up. Dust yourself off and start again. Learn from what went wrong and keep going until you get where you want to be. This is a perfect time to make some life changes, retrain or even start a business- link here.
Take some time to process losing your job. You might find these tips helpful if you struggle to let go.
Use this time to make a plan for what you want to do next. To help you get inspired, motivated and guide you on your new journey, I have selected my favourite books to help you get started.
