There is a horrible, debilitating fear that saps the life out of many of my colleagues on the job. Many work stressful, demanding jobs for billion-dollar companies.
I remember it well.
Every time the email chime went off or my manager wanted a meeting or someone from my project called my phone.
Instant anxiety. Instant fear.
What did I do wrong?
What could they possibly want?
That’s it, I’m fired. I know it.
Despite these fears being imaginary and exaggerated, they feel so real.
Termination, disapproval, embarrassment, failure, poverty, rejection, and the unknown.
You deserve better.
