How Being Fired From One Job Showed Me The Way To My Dream
Before I begin telling you what had happened which changed my life for good, here is one thing that I would really much like you all to learn and that is to always go for what you like nor what gives you money (in my case doing security system repair)
Six months back, I was a security in charge at one of the IT firms here in Catonsville VA and honestly speaking I used to hate my job so much that I was also not performing well at it, despite giving in my best effort. My boss was tired of my mistakes and so were my colleagues because at times, I used to get the little things wrong too. However, they did know that I used to put in my best effort.
Anyways, there were a number of problems associated to our building’s security system and I was given the final warning to get it fixed or else leave. Now I had requested them to let me take help from other security system repair service company in Catonsville CA so that I should get the job done properly and fix all the problems once and for all.
Little did I know that I was about to do a blunder for my whole department. I called in the company which was assigned to fix our problems and right from day one, they took over the tasks to perfection. Few of our cameras were out of line and then the locks needed some repairing, all was done just within 6 days and guess what they charged even lower than what the company used to pay the in house security system.
As by now you would know what was about to happen, the boss one day came up to our whole department and politely said “I’m sorry but we are going to down size. I mean we are outsourcing the security department to another company. As we are short on funds to run our own”. That was it and my co-workers started to hate me more.
I left the job with great depression and anger thinking that if not me then the other guys should have been saved because some of them do their best. However, deep inside I knew, introducing them to an outsourcing option was always a bad idea. Of course, they would have had security system repair service experts better than ours and the fact that they charged way too low, this was bound to happen.
Anyways I reached home with a heavy heart and I called up on my ex-wife, who after listening to all that I had to say said “You know we are divorced now and I thought that would release up the stress of not pursuing your music career. I was still confused till date that why did you still choose to be stuck with a useless job”
I hung up and thought to myself “really why am I doing something I don’t technically love? What has happened till date is over now and I need a good start”
Six months down the lane, I play piano at a local bar happily and have aims to play it on big stage someday.
