Have you ever been in the situation where you felt out of place? That no matter what you did or said or thought about the situation, things were not working?
This could have been in job or a relationship, for example.
For me this is key to wanting to work with people who I share the same values with.
So what can you do about it?
There will be just as many answers to this question, as there are people.
It is not just about making the right or wrong decision.
It is about doing what is right for you – what works for you.
Only you can come to the right answer and make the right decision, for you.
Here it is really important to be aware of what your values are.
Are you somebody how do mind to compromise to have a fulfilling relationship whether at work or in private? Or are you somebody who has certain thresholds, which you will not allow anyone to step over?
Are you a mixture of the above and it comes down to each individual situation how you choose to react?
Whichever applies to you, the main thing is that you are consciously aware of what is happening around you, how this makes you feel and what you want to do about it.
From a personal point of view, I believe in integrity and by that I mean doing what I say I am going to do, even when no-one is looking.
To me this is a fundamental value in all aspects of life, because it develops trust and respect between people.
And, of course it helps so much if you have someone you can talk to who really supports you through this process.
So, here is something I have learnt that has been of tremendous importance to me:
Being in the wrong place can become an excellent catalyst for us to move forward to something better and that when we see the situation in that light there is hope and it this hope that makes us take the next leap forward.
What is your next leap forward?
