In my LYJ (Love Your Job) Search Class, I like to provide participants with a list of affirmations to choose from while we’re working together. Affirmations can be powerful tools to make sure your inner mindset matches your external actions. If the voice in your head is telling you it’s a terrible economy, there are no jobs anywhere, and you’ll never find the right job for you, it’s time to start replacing those thoughts with positive ones. Take 5 index cards and write out your favorite affirmations to review in the morning and before going to sleep. For maximum effect, pick one to write 10x per day for 30 days. Here are affirmations to get you started:
I NOW HAVE CRYSTAL CLEAR CLARITY ON THE JOB OF MY DREAMS.
DOORS ARE FLYING OPEN FOR ME EVERYWHERE I GO.
I HAVE A NEW JOB BY SEPTEMBER 1, AND IT’S FUN! (OR JANUARY 1, ETC.)
WONDERFUL, LUCRATIVE JOB OPPORTUNITIES ARE OPENING FOR ME EVERYWHERE.
I NOW HAVE AN EXCITING ENGAGING CAREER.
I NOW RELEASE ___________ JOB (WITH LOVE) AND MAKE SPACE FOR MY NEXT NEW EXCITING OPPORTUNITY.
I NOW LET GO AND TRUST ALL THINGS ARE COMING TOGETHER FOR ME.
I DESERVE MEANINGFUL FULFILLING WORK THAT PAYS ME WELL TOO AND IT IS COMING TO ME NOW.
I HAVE A POWERFUL UNWAVERING BELIEF IN MYSELF.
THE PERFECT JOB IS LOOKING FOR ME, AND WE ARE BEING BROUGHT TOGETHER NOW.
For those who find networking to be difficult, as many people do, here are a few around that:
NETWORKING IS EASY FOR ME.
I FEEL ENTITLED AND DESERVING OF RECEIVING HELP WITH MY JOB SEARCH.
PEOPLE LOVE HELPING ME WITH MY JOB SEARCH.
IT’S EASY FOR ME TO ASK FOR WHAT I NEED.
