Why is it NAIVE, EVEN UNREALISTIC to contend that people who have been terminated/fired


obtain better jobs or go on to become even more highly successful when in fact they get WORSE jobs & never fulfilling their career/success potential, even becoming abject failures? I was strongly inculcated by my parents that to be terminated/fired from a job is the KISS OF DEATH career & success wise. To me that was what I FEARED the most. I cannot understand how people can view being terminated/fired from a job as an opportunity. I would view such as THE END of life as I knew it.

    Please delete my comment, as I have been informed by my wife who currently works in executive staffing that I am behind the times.

    Avoid listening to Dream Killers!

    In order to be an "exception" you have to (believe) you're an "exception". Listen to those who've been through it!

    Make a decision and then be determined to do whatever it takes. Most people give up in life!
