Life begins after being fired.
Life begins after being fired
I never thought of being a company owner. No ambition to be a leader and I is not good at taking care of anyone.
But then one day I found myself sitting in a beautiful house in the Ekkamai area that was turned into an office. Along with “Mommam” the lonely little dog that walks around the conference table, whimper urging to play all the time.
Fifteen minutes, the weekly meeting is about to begin.
I opened my Macbook Pro, 2016, a good laptop that has changed everything in just 4 years.
Things happen like a miracle. From writers who had never had a bestseller and former employees who had been fired. I changed myself to become a businessman with a dream and carrying more responsibility than myself once thought that can be accepted.v
Stories from now until the next episode may not be the knowledge for development or inspiration that makes someone want to find who he is exactly. What I am going to tell from this story is the story of a hot-blooded teenager who has done everything from zero. To the beginning of the work that challenges both success, relationship and meaning of life that always changes along the way.
As an entrepreneur practitioner and personal preference in the “Intern” movie.
I will record these stories as "The Internpreneur". The story of a small entrepreneur who started the company to friendship, farewell and struggling to find the meaning of life.
The first story that I want to tell will take readers back to the beginning that made my life come to this point. I believe that each person has a turning point in life, perhaps with good luck or perhaps bad luck leading to good things.
But for me, this is not luck and not good at first. Ultimately this important event is pinning and let me start my life with a new milestone. The meaning is different from the original and it grows stronger. I cannot imagine any experience that can benefit me like this. If I think about the words to make it easy to visualize this…
My life has started a new meaning after being "fired".
The afternoon of forgotten year and month
I got off the bus 3 stops before my usual stop. Wide footpath, light splashed into orange, opened sky view, the empty field is beautiful, but my heart is still dull. One big tree stands out lonely, I stayed still without any meaning. I have plenty of time to stop standing and looking at all things day and night.
"Should I sell T-shirts, called it a tree-shirt with a tree pattern?"
There is no clear answer. I'm confused. Questioning many things in life. Why I am so stupid? What can I do next?
Tearful face when I secretly put the keys in the office in the morning with a short thank you message on a piece of paper. I used to be a writer who people kept eyes on. I wrote a column and a pocket book at an early age. My life goal is to become a famous writer and editor.
Until one day I was approached to join a very cool magazine team in the literary field.
... and then I fell from that point
All events are clear in my memory. I was in the office with my boss who is a senior writer who is the front-line artist of the country. Before, I realized the discontent of my work and the feud became more intense and visible. I have suffered from my life there.
But I think I can fight and prove myself because this is the dream and the goal. I have worked with a person that I see as a model of life. Get a great reward, a great life and more freedom than any other works that I can find. That was the idea at that time.
“Khun Kathanyu, I don't let you pass the probation.” This speech was flashing during my struggle.
I was stunned, my heart fell and broke.
"You use only the mouth to work." The great writer gives me reasons.
After hearing those words, I changed, I was angry and furious. It was a terrible pain from both being kicked out and insulted until I didn't know where to hide my face. Confessing that I was so angry that I wanted to punch him for revenge. But I was silent, not saying anything.
"Don't use emotions with me." The great writer who knows the minds of people said.
I sat still, kept my feeling. Do not want the tears of shame to flow in front of him. From the person I loved, now I hate him at the heart. There is no one who made me hate this much before. I hate writers and I hate writings. The boss said he would still pay this month's salary and asked me to find a new job. I was certain that I would not take any cent from him and will go out to find my own way!
The next day, I was confused and wondered on the side of the road as I told.
It's time for the meeting. Our team members are all here. I must go now.
Next time I will tell you about my life after being fired, which has never been happened before. The results in the bad event have turned to the way I have not expected.
