I have had some interaction with people who say that people can be ‘destroyed’ in their companies. Well, I have another view all together. Someone can only destroy you if you give them permission to do so. That means you have to give in to the abuse being aimed at you, or you don’t have to give in. The more the abuser sees that they can abuse you mentally the more they see you as a slave that can be used, abused, thrown way or sold.
Now, before you make a silly judgment about me like someone on LinkedIn today who said to me in that idiotic self righteous, assumption tone ‘Clearly you have not worked in the corporate world or reality‘. I have and I still do! I have worked with ‘them all’ if you know what I mean.
Carrying on, you have two options: Flee or fight. If you are going to flee then flee. Honestly, it is more about what you will become if you don’t resign than what will happen to you if you do resign. OK that’s out of the way.
If you are going to fight then fight. It can be done if you know who you are and that you are just as powerful as that loser abuser. Never THINK that you have no power. You DO!
Who are you? You are a breathing living human with a will to choose. The first thing is to get away from that slave mentality of yours. Slaves don’t have plans. If you don’t
have a plan of your own, then you are working to secure someone else’s plan. STOP ACTING AND TALKING LIKE A SLAVE. When you joined your company, you were not SOLD INTO SLAVERY FROM ONE OWNER TO THE NEXT.
Begin to develop your emotional intelligence (EQ), it has twice the power of your IQ to drive your performance AND GET THINGS DONE. The more you develop your EQ the more you will begin to be self-aware, aware of others, self managed, self-controlled, inspired, motivated. You will become strong, fearless, courageous.
It is YOUR choice!!
