No loss is actually a loss except one, and that is a loss of one’s soul. Let’s have a glimpse into this analogy before we finally conclude.
In the world of Mathematics, if you add a negative number to a particular number, it will reduce; but when you are subtracting a negative number from that same number, it will increase. Let’s view the negative number as a loss, when you add it, it decreases the number but when you subtract it, it increases the number.
“When you are attached emotionally to a loss, it decreases you, but when you minus it, that is when you are not attached, when you try to forget it, it increases you.”Advertisements
If you are not attached to a loss emotionally, it strengthens and increases you. I have read about somebody that lost his job that became an inventor. I’ve seen someone that lost her job, and became a business woman and a CEO. I have seen a student that lost one of his parents and became very great in life. I have seen somebody that lost one business; started another one and was successful in it. No matter the kind of loss you’ve experienced or you are experiencing, with positive attitude, will strengthen and increase you.
If you don’t dwell on the loss, if you don’t continue to think on how and why it has happened. If you can put it behind and rather think on the way out, it will not mar you but make you, it will at last be a plus instead of a loss.
Most successful leaders have been reportedly lost a very important person in their lives. Despite all odds, the loss had made them, it had thought them lessons they cannot gain from nowhere. It had impacted them with the traits of great leaders. Attitude can actually turns a loss to a plus. There is no difference between a half-empty cup and a half-full cup, other than attitude and mentality.
There are different kinds of loss humanity has experienced hitherto: loss of job, loss of a loved one, loss of property, and so on. A very common one is a loss of loved one like a father or a mother; and a very rampant one is a loss of job.
Job can be lost through:
3. End of Contract.
4.Embezzlement by some workers,
and so on.
HOW TO MANAGE LOSS OF JOB
Have it in mind that one of the principles in operation by entrepreneurs and businessmen is “to slow to employ but fast to retrench if there is need,” it is not wickedness! Hence, be prepared! Prepare for the worst! As you’re aiming for the best, also prepare for the worst that may happen one time or another.
HOW TO MANAGE LOSS OF LOVED ONE
Almost everyone has lost a loved one, one time or another. What you are supposed to do after the loss is to mourn a little and go about your business. You can do whatever you can or go to any extent before it happens. When it has happened, there is nothing one can do again.
God forbid a loss, but if it happens due to a reason you may not fathom now, with right attitude, it’s going to result to positive results.
