Do You Think That Being Laid Off Can Bring Positive Change ?

When you lose your job, you go through all stages of the grieving process.

Once you have accepted the situation you are ready to move on. This is the perfect time to reflect on your past successes and failures, think deeply of what options you have, explore what you really want to be and do, what are your motivators and needs : financial, emotional, developmental, family support etc and discover what makes you happy when you start your day.

For a lot of people being laid off means more quality time for themselves to restore mental energy and physical stamina. Then change bad habits for good ones. When it happens to people around their 40s and 50s they may have a “mid-life” crisis as well so having a break helps people to take time to focus on the positive and the important elements in their life. Usually those people have enough financial reserve to go back to school, change career, solve family issues or become business owner.

Have you experienced being laid off was actually a good thing that happened to you ?
