De-bunking the “company use you” mindset
“The company is using you, your skill. The company is using us” — the common shout I’ve been hearing for many years. The mindset many of us posses. Regardless of industry.
What we fail to realize is, we both use each other. Company use our intellect and skill to grow, we use company as platform to build our skill and network. (Alliance by Reid Hoffman)
The fact that some of us have been working for years and still seeing themselves as a “victim” to a corporate institution shows how shallow the thinking is. How incapable they are at growing.
You are the designer of your own path. Be it your career or your personal life. So, take hold of it. Fuck the cry-baby attitude.
