In a down economy, many people lose their jobs without expecting it. If you happen to lose your job, do not freak out. Also, do not take it personally. It might not have been about you. Maybe your company had to outsource some jobs or maybe they had to make some cuts in order to pay their bills. Losing a job might also be the perfect opportunity to revise your strategy when it comes to your job. Maybe the job you had was not so great after all. Maybe now you have a chance to finally do something different in life. Your previous job might have kept you too busy and might have prevented you from realizing what you really enjoy doing in your life.
