It can be rough to look for a new job when you have some complicating issues going on in your day to day life. Maybe you have to work long hours just to pay the bills and simply lack time and energy to expand your horizons. Perhaps you have physical or emotional issues that get in your way of doing the things you want to do. You could have even made some mistakes in your life that seem to be holding you back from getting you back on your feet.
I’m not going to pretend that those things – and more – aren’t real, tangible things that can be roadblocks to improving your life. The thing is, though, it often isn’t as hopeless as it seems. As long as you have breath, you have reason and ability to reach for more.
Changing The Way We View Work
In today’s world, more and more can be done right from your computer or phone. First, expose yourself to positivity and inspiration every single day. As you raise your vibe, you will find you will have more energy to put towards what you truly want, even if it starts out as only five minutes out of each day to craft a business plan, search online job posts, or find free online classes. Each step will increase your confidence and remind you that anything you dream can actually be yours.
If you are truly motivated to change your life — you can. Honestly, there is a path out there you should be on, right now. Stepping onto that path can open doors and windows you missed before.
Your Best Job Hunt Strategy
There’s a lot of competition out there. You’re smart (I know this because you’re here reading this!) and there’s something you’re talented at doing. You may or may not have the formal education to back those things you’re great at doing or that deeply pull you to do, but you have the chops to be a success. When you’re looking for that job or career that’s a fit for you, though, you might be going up against a pretty tough crowd.
You need an edge, right? You need to shine brightly and get noticed to get where you want to go. The truth is that you don’t need anything special. Expensive resume paper and custom tailored suit can be used by anyone, if we’re being honest. What you need is to be uniquely you.
If you’re passionate about a position, let it show. Allow yourself to see yourself in the position of your dreams. Be just as happy as if you are already exactly where you want to be. This is going to increase the excitement in your voice, the joy in your eyes, and your high vibe can set you apart from all the others who don’t have your passion. Even if it takes a few tries, you’re learning each time you get passed over and it is setting you up for something that is even a better fit for you. Keep that light in your eyes and that happiness flowing, and you will draw the right position to you.
