Whether we like it or not, there is a time when you’ll lose something and that could include your job. I mean, who can predict the future? Unless you’re the Almighty, you ain’t got nothing on the future. Stand to, ladies! Gunny Sergeant is here to help.

Eyes here and secure your gear, private parts, cause it’s time to lock n’ load!

#1. Emotions

We all have emotions. Unless you’re Agent 47 from the Hitman video games, you are packed with emotions that are visible on your face. These emotions show us our true nature when things go awry. However, once you’ve accepted that you’ve lost your job, don’t sulk in your sadness. As the Marines say it: pain is weakness leaving the body. There are many a job out there so you best pull yourself together and keep fighting cause there’s no such thing as a non-combatant today. Hooah!

#2. Speak

Tell people about your problem when you have the time to socialize. Friends are a great way to get a new job and I admit I was helped out too before I decided to make a difference and join the military. Best job ever. Also, friends are a great way to get encouraged and you’ll find that life has meaning to it rather than just sulking in sadness over one lousy job. Ha! It ain’t over till the fat lady sings!

#3. Cash

When you work, you’ve naturally saved up something. Surely, you must have even a little bit with you or else you’re doomed. But anyway, now that you’re jobless, get your gear right and start budgeting everything. The more you spend on unnecessary things, the more likely you’ll run out. It’s like bullets. Keep shooting and you’ll soon run out. The same thing applies with money: “Short, Controlled Bursts”.
