open door -
Remember the admonition, “Walk out the door the way you walked in!” Easy said; sometimes hard to do. Leaving a job, a relationship, or any situation may become problematic. Saying goodbye may not be stress-free. Depending upon the terms and circumstances of the exit, what’s easy to say or do can become difficult because our emotions get in the way.
Pride always comes before a fall! Often times, it takes humility and courage to do what you desire not to. In the end, doing and saying the right things are more of a testament to your character than self-imposed glory of pride.
Listen and heed what that inner voice and your gut (your mind and your heart working together in concert) tell you. You will be better off!
Walk away with the same spirit and level of professionalism that you carried inside. You always want to be able to turn the knob, open the door and walk back through if required or desired.
On your way out …when you look at the people remaining inside, you will give an elegant wave as you exit with dignity.
After all, that is how you walked in!
