I have been looking for a job and nothing seems to be popping up. It is stressing me out and it is making it hard to be positive. I've always imagined myself with my career job by now...I've even considered changing career paths. Do you think this may be a sign to do so? HELP!!!
It would be my pleasure to offer you some advice. Waiting for anything can be challenging and confusing. This does not necessarily mean that you should change your career path, especially if you feel in your heart that this is your passion and what you love to do. Your instincts are your best guiding source. If you still deeply desire to have this career, then you should continue in your pursuit. Know that failure is part of success, and everyone who has accomplished anything great has always failed first, several times, but continued to follow their pursuits until they succeeded.
The best thing to do in a situation like this is to first go inward. Think about all of your blessings and the things you have to be grateful for. You cannot be attached to the outcome of this pursuit or it will not manifest. You must first learn to be happy with your life as it is now. If you find yourself unhappy because you have not yet arrived at your goal, this means you are still attached and must work on detaching yourself from this outcome.
It’s not always easy to be grateful in the present moment when we are attached to our desires. One way to do this is by thinking of something sudden and tragic happening to you and to become aware of how possible that is. Tragic things happen to people everyday, but all is still well in your life. If, God forbid, something tragic happened to you, you would look back and think, my life was great before and now I have lost so much. You might feel silly for not having seen all that you have to be thankful for, and all that you have that others seek. It then becomes easier to experience gratitude, because you realize that all truly is well.
The next you should do is really ask yourself if having this job will make you happy. I would suggest meditating on having that career, living that career in your mind for a set amount of time each day. See if it makes you happy. Meditating not only helps you put that energy out and draw it in, but will also help you decide if you want to continue to pursue that path by living it in your mind. Try acting in any way possible as if you already had that job. Whatever actions you’d be doing if you had that job, do them, if possible. Small or large, anything of the sort helps heighten the energy frequency of it. And lastly, feel the joy of it as if it were already real. As you go through your day, find moments of stillness in which you feel that having this career is your current reality.
It also doesn’t hurt to continue to search, as long as doing so doesn’t disappoint or discourage you.
