Many of my clients enjoy discovering what their ideal career might be. The process of self-inquiry allows them to turn inward to find their passions, their core skills and what work environment would best meet their needs. Self-inquiry opens them up to identify options they may never have thought about before our work together. Together, we create a game plan for a job campaign.
When it comes to implementing their plan, however, many clients experience fear and resistance. They allow their minds to dwell in the past, regretting decisions made and not made. They obsess about the future, worrying whether they will ever find the right job. Consciously or unconsciously they focus on failure instead of success. I find I really need to offer them a mixture of support and tough love. You are what you think. If you focus on failure, you will manifest the very thing you fear most. What could happen if instead you focused your mind on success? In subsequent posts, I will offer you proven strategies to rest in the present moment, focus on what is controllable in your life, and suggest how you can deconstruct belief systems that don’t serve you.
