Transformation comes from deep within, deep within your heart, deep within your spirit, and deep within your soul. Before you can have and/or create that dream job opportunity or career that you desire, you have to be committed to make some drastic inner changes. What I have discovered about job seeking, and the bigger picture, life in general, is my belief that there is never any action (energy) without self confidence. Translated, your resume will never get a favorable response from a prospective employer, if you lack self confidence. Confidence is the greatest single asset you can possess. Confidence is a product of your self-esteem which, in turn, is dictated by yourself-belief, yourself-love, and yourself-value. If any of these elements are missing, it is impossible for you to have true confidence in yourself, and conduct a favorable job search. Please understand low self-esteem is driven by fear: the fear of not being good enough, not being wanted and valued and being worthless and insignificant. You must decide today, right now, to make a conscious effort never ever to compare yourself to others, and affirm your uniqueness. Remind yourself of your talents and strengths each and every waking moment! I repeat, never ever compare yourself to anyone . God has a unique plan for each and every one of us. When you make such a comparison, inwardly you are feeling ashamed of who you are, which results in abnormal guilt and shame. This can easily make you depressed. If you don’t like yourself, the bad feelings you have inside become a continual source of inner pain. It is vital that you learn to accept and respect the person God made you to be. Don’t despise yourself because of your imperfections, or choices you have made? Instead learn to celebrate your successes, even small ones.
