Simu Liu’s Inspiring Story

Simu Liu, the main actor in the movie, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was fired from Deloitte, 10 years ago.

Here’s what he has to say about that a few days ago…

“Ten years ago to the day, I was led into my managing partner’s office at Deloitte and told that they were terminating my employment effective immediately. A lady from HR and a security guard escorted me back onto the floor in front of the entire open-concept office. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. Nobody moved, offered a whisper of encouragement or even looked in my direction. I fought back tears of humiliation, grabbed my things, and never looked back.

Ten years ago I thought my life was over. I had wasted countless time and money that my family had invested in me. Years of schooling, gifted programs, trying to live up to my parents’ expectations. It all came crashing down in an instant. To Paul Gibbon and the offices of Deloitte Toronto; sincerely, honestly, THANK YOU. You did for me what I never had the courage to do myself; you destroyed a life that I was building for someone else so that I could finally begin to build a life for me.”

WOULD YOU KNOW when to walk away even if it means starting over?

WOULD YOU DO IT even when you know your sanity and peace of mind requires you to take the plunge?

Would you?
