We know what it’s like to lose your job, we give top tips on how to handle getting fired from your job.

What do Anna Wintour, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, and JK Rowling have in common? Apart from the fact that all four are now legends in their own field and have transformed popular culture as we know it, 

rs-8">believe it or not they also have been fired!

There is no denying that getting sacked from work can be a devastating experience. This shoots down one’s confidence, makes one doubtful of his abilities and talents, or in the worst cases cause severe trauma. But if getting canned is such a terrible experience then why do some people, like Wintour herself, believe that it can be helpful not just to one’s career but more to one’s overall sense of worth.

The answer of course is simple. Given the right perspective and attitude, getting fired can serve as a catalyst to toughen one’s resolve and truly evaluate one’s worth. If there is one thing that an employee shouldn’t do after getting fired is to drown in self-pity and doubt. But how do you go from drowning in rejection to full being full-blown-ready-to-take-on-the world enlightenment? The process is not easy but give you tips on how to handle getting fired from your job.

Here’s what you can do:

1. Start Being Honest with Yourself

What exactly caused your dismissal? Is it because you were deep down not exactly interested in the work you were doing? Were there times that you were unfocused? You should be able to involve yourself with the situation and pinpoint your contribution to the dismissal.

2. Evaluate the Situation

Now that you know your mistakes, start learning from them. What can you do to improve your performance next time? What are the things that you need to develop in yourself so you will be better, more competent, and even brilliant the next time around? Also, don’t be afraid to evaluate the company, the work, your co-workers, and your bosses. Do they have any contribution to your dismissal? If yes, maybe try a different job? Look at your experience in all angles and learn from it.

3. Peacefully Reflect 

Don’t overthink the negative aspect of getting fired, think about new opportunities you can gain! Carefully reflect on your future goals and determine what you want to do and achieve in your career. Were you just trying to course through life? Waiting for the next opportunity? If you already have a definite goal then you should bed focused and geared towards achieving that goal.

But always remember…

4. It’s just a job 

It’s not a measurement of who you are as a person. Getting fired should not take away your verve or your interest in being creative or living the life that you have always wanted. Remember, our jobs shouldn’t define us. What is important are the things that we create out of our hearts and our minds.

After all, what will sustain us in the long run are not the paltry paychecks or the half-hearted employee of the month citations. It’s the fact that we had enjoyed what we had created from the moment of its inception to the moment of its completion.
