Often, when we face the firing squad, feelings of rejection run high.
We often internalize the dismissal to the point that we reject our own value. We think that all our professional powers are linked to, and have been left at, our former job.
We leave feeling empty and helpless.
Don’t do this to yourself. Your value is yours and yours alone— it is a part of you, not your company, and travels with you wherever you go.
Your value is not in the time that you spent at a company, nor in the title you had. It’s in the unique talents that you bring to the table and in the results that you produce.
So, no matter which direction you choose next in your career, never, ever forget your value.
