This afternoon…G13 make an announcement…store re-structuring…meaning that there will be layoffs…this is only the tip of the ice berg…will involve the HQ people pretty soon…and I am a newbie! :(
It’s good that this announcement will create a sense of urgency…people will start want to perform…however, on the other hand...there will be more drama…people will be more defensive…protecting themselves…protecting their rice bowl…
There is movement…God is moving people and circumstances in G13 right now…the process of me leaving The Japanese and coming back to G13…the healing of my face (yes, THANK YOU GOD, PRAISE TO THE LORD, BLESS YOU GOD…I am Healed)…the timing of getting this job…the templates, the words, the characters…let’s wait and see what God does..

What is the worst that can happen?
I was afraid that I would:
Make a fool of myself.
Be asked questions I didn’t know how to answer.
Be kicked out from the office.
Be told that I was wasting everyone’s time.
What is the likelihood of this happening?
Be realistic. The fear may distort your objectivity. Often you will find the likelihood to be small.
If this did happen, could I live with the outcome?
If yes, go for it. If no, then strategize another plan. I decided yes, I could live with the fact that I will be embarrassed. I wouldn’t enjoy it, it would be uncomfortable and emotionally painful but I could live with it. I would learn from my mistake and not make it again. Did this experience leave me alive? Yes. Was it uncomfortable? Extremely. Did I learn from it? Yes, I was better prepared moving forward.
What am I afraid won’t happen?
Sometimes we fear what won’t happen as much as what will happen.
What are the benefits to my not taking the risk?
It’s comfortable at this current comfort zone. No pain.
I don’t have to think much. I can do my job on automated pilot.
I’m making enough money to get by.
If I try something new, I might fail.
I’m at the top of the heap right now.
If I try something now, I could fall on my face.
I’m too old to change.
What are the benefits to my taking this risks?
I would learn new skills.
I will feel better about myself because I’m trying something outside my comfort zone.
I could be wildly successful.
Anything that comes up in your life that will be to your betterment, say Yes to it immediately. Don’t think about how uncomfortable you will be or that you’ve never tried this before or that you don’t think you can do it.

Cognitive Empathy >> just knowing how someone might be feeling and what thoughts might be running through their mind. At the core, this is perspective-taking, where we may not necessarily have sympathy but we are aware of the emotions of others.
Emotional Empathy >> when we can actually tap into and feel what the other is feeling. This is a skill that doctors and nurses would have cultivated during time spent with patients under their care.
Compassionate Empathy >> the most holistic form of empathy. Not only are we aware of how someone may be feeling and attuned to their emotions, but we are also driven to help the person if needed.
