A journey to remember

How Can’t We Love the Company We Work for?

Posted on: July 5, 2015

Lots of people says recently to never love your company. Don’t love it because it may not love you back and bla bla bla. That kind of sense that I fail to understand. I just can’t get the point why shouldn’t we love the Company where we work?

I have so many reasons why we MUST love our company.

For starter, we spend at least 8 hours a day in that place, at least 5 days a week. How does it feel to spend that much amount of time in a place that you hate? It must feel like hell!

Second, we earn a living from the job provided by our company. Don’t you feel like dating or marrying a guy just for his money with no love included?

And the most important thing is that we learn and we grow during our tenures in our companies. I don’t know if it’s you, but to me, the companies I’ve worked has really made me who I am today. The ups and downs has made me wiser, the experiences has made me skillful, and the chances I’ve got has discovered the competence that I never thought I had in me. How can’t I love something that has given all of that good things into my life?

Say no more, I know how it feels when the pressures killing us inside. The politics, the drama, the crazy deadlines, and so on; you mention it, I know it. But again, all of those office disasters are just the things that make us learn. It’s a precious lesson that we didn’t get in schools. Not only it has helped us to become a better employee, but also it has made us a better person inside. Trust me, it will come in handy in our personal lives too.

Loving our company doesn’t necessarily mean we spend 24 hours with it and make it our priority on top of all other important things in life. That’s NOT my point at all.

Love your company by being proud for being a part of it. Love it by ALWAYS doing your very best at work. And always remember… your company is your identity; if you spit on it, you spit on yourselves. Love it by keeping its name clean. Watch your behavior as a professional, because whatever you do may represent the entire Company as well. That’s how you love your company.

Believe it or not, loving our company will actually do good to us instead of to the Company itself. It will make us eager to learn every detail about our job; the business, the environment, and so on. Such business acumen will really help us to become an achiever at work. And of course, someone who loves their company will naturally make them look loyal to the Company and wherever we work, loyalty point is always a big plus.

What if your company is a bloodsucker that makes you suffer? Well, before I’m suggesting you to move on, I would rather asking this to yourself again, “Is it really the problem with the Company, or maybe… it’s just you?” If you keep jumping from one company to another over and over again, then maybe, the problem is yourself.

Loving a company is just like loving our families and friends. None of them is perfect. They will annoy us, upset us, piss us off, stress us out… Yet at the end of the day, we’ve got to live with it. No matter where we work, it will be just the same.

I’m not saying that we’ve got to stay with that current employer for forever though. If our best effort to fit in just never works, then it’s okay to move on. I believe finding a dream job in a dream company is like finding a Mr. Right. They won’t be perfect but they’re out there!

Life is too short to be spent with the things that we hate. Either love it or leave it! Have a great Monday, folks!

Life took me to many unimaginable people. The super kind, the selfless, the brave men, and of course, the mean and rude people, cheaters, liars, hypocrites, extremely arrogant, and all other qualities that got me thinking, “I never thought such people like these do exist!”
But I’ve also come to learn that sometimes, there is a bright side of the darkest people I know. They’re not always good, but they’re not always bad either.
At the end of the day, it helps me to define the people I can bear and the people I can’t stand. And most importantly, it helps me to decide the person I would like to become. I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome!
