The Impact of a Positive Attitude

By Personal Career Counselor. 

Most individuals involved in a job search are not sales professionals, which is why the process is usually “uncomfortable.” A job search requires you to “sell” your experience and skills to a future employer. However, success is much easier to achieve with a positive attitude.

If you are NOT currently employed, your FULL-TIME job is your job search. You need to spend 40 hours a week working on your search. If you ARE currently employed, but seeking a job change, you need to dedicate at least 10 hours every week to your search. You need to become PROACTIVE and make things happen versus being REACTIVE and waiting for things to happen for you. Whether you think you WILL succeed or whether you think you WON’T succeed – you’re RIGHT!

What you think actually becomes your reality. What your mind can conceive and believe your body will achieve.  A positive attitude will propel you to higher levels of success. There is a Law of Attraction that is extremely FAIR. It’s not enough to WANT a new job; you have to EXPECT it to happen! Your attitude either portrays you with glowing confidence or betrays with none. Envision yourself already working IN a job that would make you happy. Write down the following:

  • What type of job are you doing?
  • What are the functions of your job?
  • What salary are you earning?
  • What is your environment?
  • What type of boss do you have?
  • What are your advancement possibilities?

Write down the type of opportunity that would make you happy and read it several times each day, picturing yourself actually doing the job.  There are good jobs in Waco, in fact there are Great jobs in Waco.  So, try this and watch your results improve! You CAN do it.
