The Heart of Innovation: Thomas Edison on Making Mistakes

When I lost my job today, I felt like I was a failure. I passed the first half of the assessment which is payroll taxes and failed the other half since I got nervous and blackout in all 3 assessments. I was worried about my regularization but I figured they (management) will give me a chance. I tried saving my job and begged if they can change their mind but no that was not the case.

Upon realization, I might have been rejected but this failure will not stop me from hitting the pavement again as I know, someone out there will say..”You belong to us.”

  1. So sorry to hear you lost your job, I hope things work out for the best. Job loss happened to me several times in the past, but in the end I always managed to find something bigger and better. Or maybe it works the other way – something bigger and better got a chance to find me? 🙂 Good luck!


    1. Thanks so much. I will be alright. As a matter of fact, I might even take time off. If I start looking, I won’t be able to take another vacation for another 6 months. Will decide by next week, places I wanna see first in this country or even, go visit surrounding Asian countries. Maybe Singapore or Thailand..Things happen for a reason, a new golden door will open up for me. 😉


  2. Sorry to read about your situation. When one door closes, another opens. I too got laid off about two years ago. If not for that, I wouldn’t started my blog. Through the blog, I’ve learned more skills and knowledge. which in turn gave me confidence to try something else. Other doors are opening. Hang in there, you’re not alone.


    1. Thanks so much…I know another golden door will open. Just the initial rejection is upsetting. I will take my time and think what I really want in life. I might even come back to America as that was my home for 15 years and am missing it. I also enjoy blogging and it is such a confidence booster that I might try something new like you.

      I truly appreciate the encouraging words. 😉
