Comments22/03/2017 #25 Jerry FletcherJohn,
I've come to the conclusion that there are three kinds of people in the world:
1. Those who don't know what they don't know and hence are not capable of giving advice
2. Those who know what they know and what they don't and can give advice on matters in their knowledge base
3. Those those that ask for advice from the knowledgeable, listen and then find out for themselves.
Of these the last is what I believe we should aim for while avoiding the unsolicited little voice in your head that says, "what makes you think you can..."21/03/2017 #24 Brian McKenzieMost people do not have the spine to have the conversation, "You are not good enough" ~ so they will passively aggressive ghost you in standard non-reply mode and hope you will get the hint......of course they made this grand decision of you in about 6 seconds between their Angry Birds game and live Instagram feed update 8?/ This is both Dating and HR - draw your conclusions and Venn Diagram as you will. PS - the military was always ready and eager to tell you what a worthless piece of shit you were - it built character.21/03/2017 #23 Marisa Fonseca DinizExcellent reflection! All professionals without exception have skills to perform certain functions, but there are few who are able to recognize their failures. It's no use having a huge bag of knowledge and experience if you do not have your self-esteem elevated, for whatever you do will be considered by others a disaster, that's how the world turns. The superego is also not the best solution, but it is what masks the shortcomings of many of the bosses currently employed in the labor market. Throughout my career I have also been rejected several times in companies that I considered excellence, but I realized that many were afraid that I would take on a smaller position and be able to take their position as manager over time, comfortable position of boss, and look that some even came to tell me this, but I never let myself be beaten by the negative words, quite the contrary, then later I realized the good that they themselves had done to me. I would never have the knowledge to grow in my career with people who had nothing to add. Beginning to write a blog, a book or articles is really a very arduous task, especially when we have the ardent desire to show all those who rejected us one day, that we have enough knowledge and experiences to share with anyone who knows nothing, but it is the determination and self-esteem that keep us going. And over time we realize how much being a blogger or writer or an author does us well, and make us leverage not only our career but also highlights us in the environment we live in, that is making a difference, not just behind of an office desk thinking that it is changing the lives of subordinates, the organization, or even their own career. Everyone should experience this experience because they would know where their strengths or weaknesses in their professional career lie.21/03/2017 #22 Aleta CurryAnd not everyone will tell you you're not good enough straight to your face. If it's implied rather than expressed, well, that may be even more destructive. One can respond to a direct put down with a sound 'FU', but when the put down is implicit, it plants insidious seeds of doubt in the mind.
Then there are those who tell you what you can't do out of sincere desire to keep you from failing.
Thanks, John for another thought-provoking article.21/03/2017 #21 Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.this is really a beautiful message @John White, MBA, you will touch many hearts with it!21/03/2017 #20 Robert CormackVery interesting post, @John White, MBA. I've had my share of firings and toxic bosses as well. Interestingly enough, every time I've been fired, my boss has said "You do good work, Robert, but we're letting you go." I may write about this one day. It seems the day you stop nodding your head, you're a target. Head nodders always last longer than head shakers. Nobody has a problem with a "kiss ass" but if you fight, you have legions of people wishing you'd just go away. Thanks for the post.21/03/2017 #19 Steve JonesJohn thanks for writing this. I occasionally ask myself what motivates me and one thing I always come back to was back in the late 1970's when I totally messed up my GCSE's, (too much partying). My English teacher told me I would never amount to anything so I left school with very few qualifications and have WORKED ever since. I have never been out of work, even after redundancy. I'm lucky to have met and worked with some fantastic people over the years who have helped and supported me, but I'd also like to thank my English teacher who told me I'd never be good enough.21/03/2017 #18 Anonymous@John White, MBA Great to hear a story of recognition of what holds us back and what supports us in moving forward in our lives. If I surround myself with people who have higher expectations of me that I have of myself, then I will exceed my own expectations. My grandparents, my parents, my wife, my first manager, my friend who taught me squash, my friends, I can recite a long list of those who had higher expectations of me than I had of myself. There is a long list of detractors and belittlers but their names and roles have been crossed out so heavily I can't recall the names. Kia Kaha John, you do good service here.21/03/2017 #15 Lisa 🐝 GallagherThis article still inspires me @John White, MBA. For some reason, some people's titles have intimidated me. I think it depends on how they treat others with regards to being intimidated. I just wrote a small story about midlife and some feelings/fears I'm facing. My husband said, "Why do you write negative things when you do so many positive things in life?" I told him, I write what comes to mind and my writing does depend on my mood. Even articles that some may view as negative well, others can relate and I've found it can start conversations that lead to putting our heads together. At other times I admit, it's just cathartic. By the way, @David B. Grinberg tagged you, your company & I added your publications to the tag on my last post which is on Thriveglobal. You are an inspiration to so many and one day I would love to chat with you on the phone when you have time. I have a few ideas and I could use sound advice from someone like yourself! Kudos to you for ignoring the haters and letting them ignite your flame!21/03/2017 #13 Laura Donnelly@John White, MBA - enjoyed this post --- what helped me was accepting that I was good enough (coming from a family of perfectionists, this was a big step for me!) This quote: "Always remember, the people who say you can't do something can't do it either!" So true - and when you do it, they really don't like you, so better to leave them in the dust!21/03/2017 #12 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#5 This is very topical because I saw an interview with Matt Damon where the interviewer asked how his mentor in what was a regular school in Boston end up producing three Oscar winners in Damon, the two Afleck brothers. It is the way he fondly remembered his mentors that showed me just how many people in life are unsung heroes.
I believe that when we have that level of gratitude, that emotive energy can be sufficient to override the negative batteries that drain us of energy and life.
We know when we come across a negative battery, for their only purpose is to drain us, and so it is important to recognize these effects but also supplement positive effects that Matt Damon expressed in his great affection and tribute to his high school drama teacher, a man who selflessly taught his art so others could achieve the impossible dreams. We cannot let our lives be defined by tormentors when there are these mentors that you have expressed in our life.21/03/2017 #9 Devesh BhattWriting is a good way to get clarity.

Comments20/03/2017 #5 CityVP 🐝 Manjit#2 Joyce, while we watch these video's that touch us on an emotional level, there are amazing technological developments in the area of thought controlled prosthetic. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/21/technology/a-bionic-approach-to-prosthetics-controlled-by-thought.html
As these technologies mature, the idea of people covering their faces with pity will be less prevalent, and when these times arrive, we will look back at video's like this in the same way we do when we think about novelty acts in PT Barnum circus acts.
Look at the wording above, it leads with "girl without hands sings" - what I see is a human being who knows how to sing, who just happens not to have hands. If we want to change human views about disability, they start with our gut reactions.
I know what you would have seen Joyce, you would have seen the words "Abandoned Girl" and your tears link to this reality more. As we make these realities more explicit, we begin to learn to see the human being and then the innovation that adds new functionality.
The innovation in MS would be a cure for MS. http://www.sciencealert.com/this-radical-new-cure-for-ms-reboots-the-immune-system - these are very tiny steps but the more focus we attend to these steps, the more we set attention towards seeking proactive marvels and transformations through science/tech.20/03/2017 #3 🐝 Fatima Williams#1 Thank you to this beautiful girl actually Phil.

Comments23/03/2017 #55 Donna-Luisa EversleyThanks for this discussion. There should be no discrimination on persons who have any form of disability. However, yes, worldwide there is discrimination. Think the persons who condemn , laugh, chastise, or seek to belittle persons differently abled are themselves soulfully disabled of compassion and kindness.
Thanks @Joyce 🐝 Bowen keep up the good fight. Power of the pen!22/03/2017 #54 David B. GrinbergAll people should be judged by their ability, merits and God given talents, including people with disabilities. Any myths, fears and stereotypes about people with disabilities is reprehensible. This stigma must end, including on issues of mental health. Regardless of whether a person has a physical or mental disability, again, it's their ability that should be the main focus, as well as their character and moral fiber. Anything else is simply superficial and shortsighted thinking.21/03/2017 #53 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher@Joyce 🐝 Bowen, you are darn right you have worth! I'm sorry it took so long to get a diagnosis and you were mis-diagnosed with depression for so long. Dr's tend to do that to women who present with a subset of symptoms. That is something the Medical Profession really needs to work on and change. As for work, I think you might find with your knowledge and determination you could possibly do online work, become an advocate online, or whatever it is you think you are not only capable of doing but have the desire to do! I admire you.21/03/2017 #40 Deb🐝 LangeDear @Joyce 🐝 Bowen we have so far to go towards being more human, more accepting of one another, more caring, I sense your pain I sense your persistence I sense your bravery I sense your humility / sending you love across the oceans - I hear you I see you I sense you xxx20/03/2017 #39 Helena Jansen van VuurenI have not really commented before because someone very very very close to me - my one and only child has problems of some magnitude to him. Fluid filled cavity/cysts on the brain and spinal cord and all its attendant problems. Diagnosed at the age 16 just when he had been made captain of his rugby team. Neurosurgery and then at 18 metal work to support his spine, since then a lot of hospital time. As a mum you want to wrap him up and hit anyone who touches him. He went to uni and worked as barman to pay for that - I know what price he pays for every little achievement and when he is home this is evident from the empty packet after empty packet of pain killers that comes out of his luggage. He then did a Masters and got distinction - apparently this is fairly unusual....he is now writing up his research for his Doctorate. I am constantly astounded at the drive he has to do what he wants and the fight in him humbles me daily. When I read your posts I detect the same spirit in you and find that I want to hug you and make it better/easier for you but I can't - but I can tell you that I am in awe of your strength and the world is a better because of you!20/03/2017 #38 Dorothy CooperYou know that I get this! I find myself at hanging off a branch since Trump's budget was announced. I raised my children with the help of social supports as opposed to family supports. I am very scared of losing my Medicaid for attendant care and therefore a nursing facility is my next option. I believe there are so many misconceptions of what being disabled means, especially for women. I am sickened that I worked and raised a family while getting a doctorate and now my resources have dwindled because I placed my kids first and now it's time to be thrown away. I resist writing about because there are so many myths about positivity. Yes, I think that is essential but I found being realistic and focused on a solution based mentality works best for me. I am glad you are here and I have a very good friend who has severe MS and she hold's doctorate in nursing. We need to find each other. I recommend you go to #PushLiving they have some great articles and always are looking for great bloggers. I appreciate your post and I can only wish for some more exposure. I find the time to write takes so much time these days. Thanks, for your courage. Happy Spring💐🌿♿20/03/2017 #36 debasish majumderExquisite share indeed @Joyce Bowen! it is a common adage in our country that, whether Allopathy, Homeopathy or any other form of diagnosis, without sympathy none can be cured. unfortunately, modern method of medical science largely dominated by corporate, where profit is their only motto, devoid of any values and empathy, resulting patients to be subjected to erroneous and inhuman treatment. however, your case is extremely disheartening. too disheartened. thank you very much for the share.
