I was once told by my ex-Boss, "kalau rezeki tu is for you, it will be for you. Just wait for it to come. Kalau bukan rezeki you, bukan lah". It embedded in my mind till now. Now why do I say this. Recently there was an organizational restructuring in our Division and I was assigned to be the Head the Supply Management and Logistics Department. Never have I thought that I would be assigned to be one. But if it's for you, it's for you. I had been in the same Dept for almost 12 years but I never had the intention to be heading a bigger role.
It was announced one Friday evening by our New GM in the Division. He also mentioned that he had shown the new Org Chart to the DCEO and he agreed to it - giving me 6 months to prove it before the "real" promotion is given. Currently is just "acting" position.
I was caught off guard of this new development. Part of me was stunned but part of me was a bit delighted. It's a mixed feeling. More responsible to be burdened on me I guess.
Those who were close to me, they were very happy as well.. congratulating me. But there was one guy, who felt differently. I later heard he said to someone that "I was not qualified" to be the head. Of course when I heard it, I felt very annoyed. But then again when I remember the phrase "kalau rezeki tu is for you, it will be for you". When you work hard sincerely, one day you will be rewarded.
And looking at him, I later said to myself: if he is qualified, if he has a good attitude and if he is good enough, wouldn't he have been promoted long time ago. Tapi kalau dah hasad dengki tu ada, he will sees thing negatively.
And later I was told that he wanted to move into sales because he mentioned that he can't get along with me. I wonder? Is it he can't get along with me or everyone can't get along with him? Orang kata kerja berkira sangat. I heard almost everyone had the same complaint on him. So why should I feel hurt if he complaint on me? If he is a sincere person, he would have told me directly and I would accept it. But hearing him complaining about me from someone else, that's made me having bad impression on him.
Those who are with me, not only they congratulate me, they were even happy for me. And that makes me feel that I should move forward without thinking of any criticism.
But because of that criticism, it makes me think. All this while when I heard people from my batch or even younger, were promoted to managers or senior managers, I always say alhamdullilah they have been promoted. They must have done something good and that's why they were promoted. I refrain myself from saying negative things. Because it's their rezeki. It's their time.
Every time the salary was credited into my account, I say alhamdulillah. I have money for me family. Every time we have food on the table, I say alhamdulillah. I have some food to fill up the my family's stomach. Every time I had something good or bad, I say alhamdulillah. I practice that all the time. So maybe ALLAH blessed me this time for saying that all the time.
To that guy.. too bad I am your boss now and I would not change because of you. To my positive friends, hey let's work happily together. I'm sure you have a good boss now hahahaahaa. Don't you agree. Just work hard sincerely and one day you will be rewarded.
And now I have to prove to make it!
