Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) an executive, whose job is to fire people. He also helps them thro’ self help philosophy, conducts workshops on how to cope with the situation and face the reality.
Why to Watch:
The film starts with Ryan interviewing some people who are getting laid off, we have captured some of the laid off employee’s quotes, feeling & emotions for our readers:
“This is what l get in return for 30 years of service for my company? And they send some yo-yo like you in here, to try to tell me that I’m out of a job? They should be telling you you’re out of a job”
“On a stress level, I’ve heard that losing your job is like a death in the family. But personally, l feel more like the people l worked with were my family and l died”
|Anybody who ever built an empire or changed the world sat where you are right now. And it’s because they sat there they were able to do it. That’s the Truth!
Take the day, get yourself some exercise. Go out for a jog, give yourself some routines and pretty soon we’ll find our legs
What is in your Backpack?
How much does our life weigh? Imagine for a second you’re carrying a back pack. Pack it with all the stuff that you have in life, the things on shelves, drawers, collectibles, clothes, linens, TV etc. Now feel the weight as that adds up.
The back pack should be getting pretty heavy. Now add bigger things and try to walk. It’s kind of hard isn’t it?
This is what we do to ourselves on a daily basis, we compare to others, we weigh ourselves down until we can’t even move and make no mistake Moving is Living.
Now set that back pack on fire and let everything burn and imagine waking up tomorrow with nothing. Pack light and travel efficiently. We feel happy.
Panic doesn’t help
Hearing the words ‘you’ have been let go (fired) is never easy. Change is always scary, but consider the following ‘Panic doesn’t help anyone’
Ryan says “what we do here is brutal, and it does leave people devastated but there is a dignity to the way we do it.
There is a Methodology to what we do. There is a reason why it works.
|Never lose yourself, believe that no matter how long the darkness is, it still is temporary!
How much did they first pay you to give up on your dreams?
‘We see guys who work at the same company for their entire lives, they clock in & clock out and they never have a moment of happiness’
You have an opportunity now. This is a rebirth.
With a job that has him traveling around the country firing people, Ryan Bingham leads an empty life out of a suitcase, until his company does the unexpected: ground him.
