Have to dismiss people? You are dismissed? Make the difference in style!

If you know how to recruit as an employer, and also when you accept a job as an employee (be honest), you will know that everything begins and everything also can have an end. This is a simple truth. There is a time for beginning and there can be a time for ending.

It does not have to be that there is a wound in it. See it as a time to learn, thank each other and part ways. Not in anger, not in rage, not with a grudge, not with any complaint, but with gratitude and thankfulness.

Every person is unique and worthwhile (even when you are or have to be dismissed). But when you are not totally aware of all your talents, your gifts and your life mission and your habitat is not the right one to flourish… It all seems not to be right. No future in sight.

Wake up! There is a new future! Is this only a problem or can you accept it as an opportunity as well? Leave your general excuses as for instance being too old to find another work environment. Look behind your inner believe. Save sending out negative energy. Work, with a little bit support, on yourself to find new ways. Come into action. Don’t complain, don’t judge, don’t blame. Without even knowing you are infecting and intoxicate not only yourself but also your love ones and environment around you. 
Do not believe in yourself but trust in yourself! When you cannot trust yourself, who on earth can you trust?

Work together as a team (yes, that’s still possible) and make the most of it. Use this period as an opportunity. Not as an ending but as a fresh new beginning. Analyse and support each other. Work, examine and prepare on taking courageous challenges and steps for the future. Don’t forget to breath!

Give it a try. Remember, it’s not only about the money. It’s more about getting joy in life and living. Make the difference in style. Use this time to find new sustainable and good feeling solutions for both in a separated future. Take the responsibility as an employee for, and take control over, your own life so attractive further steps will arrive. Let your (former) employee, by giving him or her some support during this process, be your business card in his or her new future.

Why give so many attention to the problem and procedures instead of giving attention to different most of the time even cheaper and better fitting and feeling solutions. If one, well known, door closes automatically another, sometimes not yet seen, door of opportunities opens.

So when ‘the end’ is near choose a different way to say ‘good-by’ to each other. Don’t fight and spend lots of money on lawyers when it’s not (yet) necessary. Be creative, offer and take possibilities, give and take chances, invest in (former) human capital, do not harm, save both of your names. Make this change worthwhile for both employer/organization and employee.

We experience, working with people from different parts of the world and from different cultures, it works. Off course you cannot guarantee. We are working with people... But still, a lot of progress, a lot of insight and a lot of change out of inner power of clients. They are (also) open and willing to find their own way out of personal strength.

Save emotions, (negative) energy, extra work and money. See the challenge and make the difference and change in style together! Invest in the beauty of change!

During our special retreat program we experience this ‘obstacle’, for both, can be a huge and much more easy positive opportunity.

Your life cannot go wrong

About a month ago I received this article written by Jeff Foster. A great guy who sometimes showed up at 'The Padma Centre' in Middelburg - NL to give a presentation. The place where I for several years joined a nice and inspiring meditation and philosophy group, living my 'former' life in this life.

Jeff's theme often is a topic during a communication cafe or other dialogue with guests here in Northern Thailand. It's causing lots of beautiful in-sights as well as relief. The way Jeff describes in his article, in my opinion, is so wise and touching it should be a shame not to share in our blog. Be aware maybe you need some time to deeply understand and to suppress your first coming up thoughts. 

Your life cannot go wrong

In reality, your world is set up so that nothing happens to you, but everything happens for you - for your awakening, for your growth, for your inspiration, for your exploration - even if you forget that, or sometimes cannot see it, or sometimes fall into distraction and despair.

When there is no fixed destination, you cannot ever lose your destination, so you cannot ever lose your path, so nothing that happens in your life can take you off your path. Your path IS what happens, and what happens IS your path. There is no other.

Everything is a gift on this unbreakable path that you call your life - the laughter, the tears, the times of great sorrow, the experiences of profound loss, the pain, the confusion, the times you believe you'll never make it, even the overwhelming heartbreak of love - even if you forget that sometimes, or cannot see that sometimes, or lose faith absolutely in the entire show sometimes.

But even the loss of faith in the show is part of the show, and even the scene where 'something goes wrong' is not indicative of the show going wrong, and so you are always exactly where you need to be, believe it or not, even if you are not.

Life can be trusted absolutely, even when trust seems a million light-years away, and life cannot go wrong, for all is life, and life is all. Understand this, know it in your heart, and spirituality is profoundly simple, as simple as breathing, as natural as gazing up at the stars at night and falling into silent wonder. The universe is more beautiful than you could ever imagine.
