“If you don’t like it, YOU CAN QUIT!”
I was flabbergasted as this exec stared me in the eyes.
I started seeing red and my entire body tensed up.
I had just come off another record-breaking year.
We had fought through a lot of adversity in the past year..
But still finished off as one of the top in the company.
There were some changes coming on the horizon.
Changes I didn’t agree with.
The exec asked for my opinion.
I did it professionally but I gave it to them straight.
They did not like it.
And that’s when the exec told me to quit.
My boss was sitting next to me.
I could see the blood drain from their face.
The exec continued to berate me.
I held back my anger.
I sat there quietly and let it happen.
The exec left after they were done.
Years later, I still remember it vividly like it was yesterday.
It’s a great reminder that..
People may forget what you said.
But they’ll NEVER forget how you made them feel.
Do you agree?
