Choosing the right career is of highest importance if you want to live a happier and more fulfilled life. Today, in this highly competitive world, most of you spend the largest part of your time at work. If you are not happy in your job, it will be reflected in the other areas of your life. If, on the other hand, you make the right career choice right from the beginning and do what you really love and enjoy, your job will be fun. The great Confucius once said "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."
Most of us are conditioned by society, by our parents and friends to do the jobs which are considered to be highly prestigious and which will allow us to get a very high income. As such, we tend to do jobs which provide us with a high remuneration even though we don’t really like what we are doing.
Your career choice should not only be based on what will provide you with the highest income or what others want you to do, but it should be based on a number of other factors like, what you love doing, what your talents and aptitudes are, what type of personality you have, etc. When you do a job that you don’t like, you will never perform at your best and your productivity will be poor. This in turn causes a lot of stress as a result of which, many other problems crop up in your life. This, however, should not be like this. You all deserve to do the things that you really love and enjoy as you are all bestowed with unlimited potentials and unique talents. It is only when you do what you are meant to do that success will follow. When you are happy doing the job you are destined to do instead of blindly following the crowd and doing things that are not meant for you, you emit positive vibrations as a result of which you tend to attract more and more positive things into your life.
A wise person once said “If you follow the crowd, you will likely get no further than the crowd. If you walk alone, you're likely to end up in places no one has ever been before. Being an achiever is not without its difficulties, for peculiarity breeds contempt. The unfortunate thing about being ahead of your time is that when people finally realize you were right, they'll simply say it was obvious to everyone all along. You have two choices in life. You can dissolve into the main stream, or you can choose to become an achiever and be distinct. To be distinct, you must be different. To be different, you must strive to be what no else but you can be.” Doing a job you love is therefore of utmost importance for you to live a joyful life.
You can use the Law of Attraction to choose and manifest your ideal career in your life. This powerful universal law states that you attract into your life, whatever you give your energy, attention and focus to, whether wanted or unwanted. If you want to attract your ideal job, first of all, you must be very clear about what you want. Most of the time, you only have a very brief idea about the job you would like to do and as such, you tend to attract jobs that are not really suitable for you. How do you become clear about what you want? Most of the time, it is very difficult to know exactly what you want in an ideal career. One of the best ways to become clear is to make a list of things that you don’t like in a job. You don’t have to focus on what you don’t want to attract but just examine briefly what you don’t want. Once you have made a list of around 50 things that you don’t want, you can proceed by making the list of things that you want in an ideal job. The things that you want are the exact opposite of the things that you don’t want. For example, “I don’t want to do a job where I am not happy” will be replaced by I want a job where I am very happy and “I don’t want to have a boss” will be replaced by “I want a job where I am my own boss”.
Once you are clear about what you want in your ideal job, you must raise your vibration to attract your ideal job into your life. It is very important to know that in life, you do not get what you want but you get what you vibrate. You must therefore become a “vibrational match” to what you want in order to attract what you truly desire. You can raise your vibration by acting as if you already have the job that you want and start experiencing how you would feel if you were already doing that job. You can use affirmations or phrases like “I am in the process of attracting my ideal job” to raise your vibration to attract what you desire. You can also visualize what you want in your job and make as if you already have it. You must note that whether you are using affirmations or visualization, the most important thing is that you must feel what it would be like to already possess your ideal job.
Once you are very clear about your ideal job and you have raised your vibration to attract your ideal career, you should allow your ideal career to manifest in your life. Allowing is the absence of doubt and fear. If you have a strong desire to attract your ideal job but at the same time, you have strong doubts, you will never be able to attract your ideal career because you will be sending mixed signals in the Universe. If, on the other hand, you have a strong desire and some doubts, you will attract your ideal job, but it will take a little longer to manifest in your life. The best way for rapid manifestation of your ideal career is when you have a strong desire and no doubt at all. The right understanding and application of the Law of Attraction will bring miraculous results in your life.
You are all unique and are all here for a specific reason. You are born with specific talents and virtues and your job is to discover what you are here for and do the job you are designed to do, since the world needs what you have to give. Finding your true calling and doing the job you are meant to do will be your gift to this world and will allow you to live a more joyful life. As Abraham Maslow rightly said “A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself.” Your life is too short to be little and you all deserve to live an awesome life. Always follow the advice of Al Lopez who once said “Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it.”
