“It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.”
– Aristotle Onassis
The title of this blog is left unfinished on purpose… how would you finish the phrase? As I have been in my new role for the past 3 months and frankly, the journey has not been easy… not the work, I do not have any issues with work… mainly people… who has the attitude of “holier than thou”, self-important and low self-esteem who is trampling on others to make themselves feel good… they may not think that they are doing so to others but it surely shows that many are somehow giving the feedback!
Anyway, how I would complete the phrase for this blog’s title will be… “What you focus on… you give power to…” as what my mentor-friend shared with me… the more I focus on the problem, the more the problem will be magnified.
It is not easy to just brush the feelings aside when they keep finding fault with the team and I chose not to do the same as I find it a waste of time just wanting to fight back. Yes, I may be suffering in silence and to react will to make them having the fun of watching me losing it to their unnecessary actions. They may have the thought that I am just doing nothing and being weak… anyway, time will tell and I believe that I just have to focus on doing the right thing, then the results will be realised in time. May not be our time, it will be in HIS time.
I know my time will come, I just have to be patient and keep going. I have been called to this role for a reason. Most people may not know it, I have my purpose. At the end of the day, people only care about themselves. So, I will take the higher road and building my strengths, then when the timing is right, reveal them to the world.
“Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.” – Ovid
“First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Anyhow, I believe that in the eyes of many people who care for me… I am a WINNER! Praise God for that.
