We all know that life can throw us a few curveballs here & there. We generally take it in our stride & roll with it right through to the other side.
Every so often, the curveballs just keep coming & coming & we can get to a point of thinking – ‘What the hell did I do wrong’ or ‘How the hell am I going to get through this’?
I have experienced these thoughts & feelings firsthand & I know how hard it can be plus what it does to your head.
Back in late 2017, I suffered a knee injury at work. At first, they were fairly good about things but that soon started to change. I was a Resident Field Service Technician for a rather large company so for a while it was a case of ‘out of sight out of mind’.
They were going to give me PC work from home, but I basically sat around doing S.F.A. Then one fine day I had a call from the regional manager who started dictating how & what I was going to be doing. Now this included being approx. 200km from home & staying away from home for a couple of nights etc.
I am no stranger to working away but I gave that up a few years prior & took this JOB as I would be home every night. Needless to say, that my objections did not go down very well with him & then the threats started.
I stood my ground-on matters, but the situation did not settle. Anyway, to cut a long story shorter, I had 3 operations on my knee & they let me go in early 2020. I have since had a fourth operation & the knee is no better plus, I have major follow on affects with hip & back problems all due to this ongoing knee injury.
NOW, my whole point here is that I have not let my injury & my fantastic (sarcasm) former employer, get me down & ruin my life. I have learnt some amazing things by way of personal development while creating our business which has helped me cope with these curveball’s life has been throwing at me.
You too can get through anything life throws at you, a desire to get through it is all that is initially needed.
That is one of the many things we offer with our training & mentorship offers.
If you ever have the desire to change the road you are travelling on, then let’s have a chat (no obligation).
Keep smiling legends
