What’s driving your career “thoughts” right now, uncertainty, confusion, maybe even desperation? Do you know how many times in a week, that I hear this statement? “I am sending resume after resume, and no one is contacting me, how can I get a job when no one is hiring?”
Today’s job market is a living nightmare. I say this not to make you feel better about your situation, but to make you aware that you need to make some changes immediately in your job search campaign. Even more than having a professional REMAKE your resume, you may want to learn, digest, and come to understand the Universal Law of Attraction, and how understanding the principles of this law, can help you find a job.
The quickest way to learn about this law is to read the famous book or watch the DVD, The Secret. There are also many other books, research, workshops, literature, and information on the web, on this universal law.
In the famous book The Secret, it describes humans as magnets that attract back whatever thoughts are “put out” into the universe. Therefore, if you are looking to change something in your life, all you have to do is change your thoughts and feelings. But beware: thinking about what you don’t want will give you just that also. According to the theory, this means that our current situation is a result of the thoughts, the words, and the feelings we have and use each day. So in other words, that means if you are out of work, and no one is responding to your resume, it’s probably because you constantly think, speak, and worry about this with those exact thoughts and words. You can apply this same principal to losing weight, dating, and being in debt. The Law of Attraction does not know the difference between good and bad thoughts. Rather, it gives you what you are thinking and speaking about.
So, how can you use the Law of Attraction in your job search? First, you must pay attention to how you are feeling and what you are saying to ensure you are thinking positively, and feeling positively. If you are feeling discouraged, it should stop immediately. You can do this by thinking about what you are thankful for to shift your thoughts back to the positive.
Secondly, you must believe and energize that belief by feeling that you can get your dream job. Imagine it, think about it, and yes talk about it. Never talk or think about NOT getting that job. You must make sure your thoughts and actions are aligned with what you want. For example, saying you want job “X”, but feeling and thinking that the economy is too terrible for you to ever get it will not work.
Thirdly, you must believe in yourself even when others don’t. If you don’t get a job you interviewed for, think of it as a good thing. This means that it wasn’t the right job for you, and that the right job is coming. You will find out why down the road.
In your job search, you must envision, believe, and think that there are more than enough great jobs to go around rather than assume there are not enough. Be aware of your intuition. Write down what you want in a position, and read it daily to keep your specific goal top of mind. Although this might seem like a tall order, I think you will find that the more you start to think positively the more good things will come. From there, changing your thought patterns will become more natural.
