Recognition

One doesn’t need the acknowledgement from others to acknowledge one’s self

I’ve never needed a reward or anybody’s praise to feel good about myself.

I know who I am and I know what I’m capable of doing.

If no one ever took notice of my abilities it would not have made me any less able.

There is so much more to many of us than what a lot of others can see or perceive upon the surface.

What about the other qualities or faculties in which we may possess?

What about our character, how our minds think, what we stand for, what we believe in, the very things in which define our being of substance?

Those of us who are strong and confident don’t require anyone to validate us. Our existence and state of being is proof enough of affirmation, we don’t need confirmation.

The very first award I remember to have received was at the age of seven or eight, I was presented a pen in front of my entire school auditorium for being one of the best readers among all the other students.

From then on, I’d constantly receive certificates, awards, and tokens of achievement, whether at school or on my jobs.

Of course, these exhibits of recognition are very nice and enough to make our parents and those who believe within our capacity very proud of us and of our accomplishments.

I just feel praise and awards are just words and objects in which one shouldn’t expect to depend on when it comes to self worth or self value, and going forward to attain one’s aspirations.

Self Value/Self Respect

 

Some people are oblivious to the calculating motives and operation of certain supervisors or person’s within the workplace, and other particular establishments.

I’ve never been anyone’s flunky, or one to kiss anybody’s ass, and I will never start to.

I’m not the type who does anything to keep a job, or the type to accept any form of abuse, or mistreatment,  especially not at the cost of insulting my intelligence and dignity.

I’m too fiery and sensible of a person to be held down and to not realize the additional opportunities out there within the world just waiting for me to reach out and grab them.

All we have to do if or when such an instance occurs is to seek and we shall most definitely find a well suited venture to undertake.

Good Vibrations

Other people’s behavior never affected my accomplishments yet having positive energy around one gives a situation an extra boost.

I’ve been in workplaces occupied by  good employers who treated me right and who strived to be fair.

Work environment is very important although we don’t have control over the negativity that may arise or hover over within the atmosphere of toxic people.

I don’t get involved with rancorous people or frivolous crowds.

I go to work to do my job and not to make friends. I’m civil to coworkers but I keep my distance toward those who my spirit doesn’t take to.

When I have an occupation in which suits me well, regardless of whether or not I really want to be there at the job, to me, it is more like fun than actual work itself.

When one enjoys what they do and are comfortable within their settings it can make all the difference as to how successfully they will perform.

 

 

 

Non Working People

 

To me, having a job doesn’t make a person who they are.

There are people who are employed who are not about anything and who aren’t worth anything, they may have just gotten lucky, or were more fortunate in life than certain others.

Then, there are people who are unemployed who happen to be the most valuable and reasonable people on the planet.

There are many reasons some people don’t have jobs or don’t want to work.

Their grounds are not always on listless, baseless, or negative terms either and they don’t owe anyone any explanations whatsoever.

Unless others have walked in these people’s shoes they shouldn’t be so quick to stomp all over them.

Some people don’t like to constantly be around other people. Some people may see the world within a different light than average or what is usual.

Some people want to be their own boss. Some people want to utilize their own talents within their own ways.

Some people have things going on around them in which may call for them to sort out before they make their significant turn unto their journey.

Some people are dealing with illnesses.

One never knows what’s going on in another person’s life.

I’m not saying this is the case for everyone, of course, there are unmotivated low-life bums who exist only to steal or to mooch off of other decent people.

There are also those who are unable to hold a job and those who are too incompetent to work due to a lack of skills and a lack of proficiency, however, I’m not talking about individuals within this category.

I’m talking about good or okay people who just may have had a case of bad luck, a hard or difficult life, a spiritual dilemma, a celestial arrangement, or they just may have an unconventional outlook where they view things inexplicably but they’re not bad or lazy people and they’ll get whatever they need to get together when the time is right for them.

The universe has a way of design, and, a way of working things out.

Unsupervised Supervisors/The Unfair Advantage

I don’t like it when employers/managers try to take advantage of you because they know you are a good worker.

It’s happened to me a few times.

I had a company I worked for have me fill in for another employee who was supposed to return back to her schedule at day two of me covering her shift, yet she was able to call out again, and I got left hanging for two extra days on the job.

I ended up working four extra days straight or else I would have gotten penalized due to the fact management had no one else to cover for them.

If it was me who had called out like that it would have not been acceptable.

When I tried to get out of it one of the managers told me “No”. And, her excuse was “We can’t get another associate like you and one as good as you for the particular assignment”.

So it was all about making the company look good never mind what I may have had planned on my days off.

I had just finished my own complete weekly schedule immediately prior to getting a call from a manager to fill in for what they claimed would be a two day fill in shift. I accepted to make extra money not to be conveniently “sentenced” to an assignment on account of another employee’s irresponsibility.

I eventually walked out on them I had too much self respect.

I understand when someone can be depended upon and/or does outstanding or exceptional work supervisors tend to heavily rely on them to come through and consider them to be a great representation of their establishment.

However, attempting to use someone who is an asset for one’s own recognition and advancement within the workplace at the cost of depriving the employee of their own fair treatment is highly unethical.

After all, it is the employee doing and putting in all of the work, why not show appreciation by promoting them instead of keeping them in the same position only to benefit from them or because the managers fear their employee will eventually snatch up their job.

I’ve been on jobs where the supervisors didn’t even know what they were doing, they did not have a clue about how to properly do their job or how to manage the establishment, and they had to count on other employees who were under them to show and teach them the certain procedures in which they should have already had experience within, and known, in order to have obtained the positions they were in to begin with.

Many supervisors haven’t earned their way up honestly they were given their jobs either out of favoritism, because they may have had a relative pull some strings for them, or they just knew someone just as corrupt as they were who also abusively used their position to rise up without actually deserving any of their working status.

I’ve  had to phone up the corporate office on more than one of my employers at two of my workplaces within the past, and surely, the supervisors were investigated, and action was taken because I was in the right.

Things don’t always play out so well when contacting headquarters, of course, because there is also plenty of corruption within the corporate offices too.
