Proteus Career Management says:

“Losing one’s job may seem like an unmitigated disaster but, for many of us, it is the gentle push we need to strive for greater achievement.”

The lesson? “Be self-motivated.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

Even though the author of today’s quote is anonymous, there is a great lesson about being self motivated here. There’s always a positive if you look for it. In our experience at Proteus Career Management even when people lose a job they nearly always finish up with a brighter future than if they’d stayed where they were.
