When a senior co-worker gave a farewell speech, he was in a dark grey suit the eyes full of tears. He left the office with a bouquet of flowers. We thanked him and wished him a bright future, but I couldn't see his spirit from the back of his grey suit. He left his soul somewhere in the company.
I was 24. At that moment, I made a vow to myself not to lose my soul at work. When I leave, I would say goodbye to my fellow workmates and graduate from the company with excitement and joy like a 20-year-old girl.
When I finally left the company after 30 years, at the farewell party, I shared this story with my young workmates. I realized that I was true to my vow. During all these years of struggles and accomplishments, this vow supported me to be at the finishing line just as I imaged and believed. I left the company with a big smile.
Believe in your goal image. Your inner energy will support you on the road.
