I have a very clear, discrete plan for my future. I know what I want to be in every five years. I have it in the picture on a paper actually. When my ex-boss saw it, he said, you are so ambitious. Well, how can you face yourself each morning in mediocrity? I want to be the best, even though I realize it takes time and process. But I need constant progress.
I started rather slow in my career, you know. Most people started when they were 22 yo. But for me, I spend another two years for a master degree. I started when I was 24 yo. I need to accelerate right now. I can't wait any longer.
I had my struggles in the past four weeks. I talked previously about the transferring to another department. Hey, I'm not allergic to changes. But this change has zero benefits (in my perspective) for my future career. I should start from the beginning again, without any raise or promotion or whatsoever.
I'm a fool if I do nothing.
I'm not saying that I'm that brilliant. But I'm very good at my job, I have all of the degrees and certification you need. I have the attitude. So, I said to myself, nothing is irreplaceable.
Thank's to God, He knows my heart, my struggles, the pain. He opened the way, in a way that I don't even imagine it first.
Only in two weeks process, I have another job. With the promotion that I always want, better level, a raise (50%!) and a better health plan.
Again, glory to the Lord who leads us even in the darkest hours.
I know, there will be many stories, risks, challenges ahead waiting for me. But hey, that's life!
For every woman out there, never ever give up on yourself. Never ever let yourself be that fool dancing on the strings held by those big shots. Never. Take the control of your life. Fight until you can't breathe anymore. Fight for your life. Because no one, no human being, will love you like you should love yourself. No one will take care of you like you should take care of yourself.
