Let’s start with the bad news, you can’t just go and manifest a job. It’s not as straightforward as that. The good news is that you might be able to create a situation where a job gets manifested by you.
That probably sounds like a contradiction, but there is a difference. If you think it’s possible to focus on the job you want and expect it to happen, you’re mistaken. It doesn’t work that way.
If you want to be a doctor, it isn’t possible to just make it happen. It takes years of study and practice to qualify. What you can do, is to take some action so you put yourself in alignment with what you want to achieve.
There are several steps you can take to move yourself into alignment, so the job becomes a possibility. Taking the necessary action, focusing and believing will help towards manifesting your dream job.
Steps to Manifest a Job
For many people, having a job is a means to an end, earning money to live. Unless we’re lucky enough to be rich or able to live by our own means, we need a job to survive.
If we’re lucky, we might enjoy what we do for a living, but most don’t. Having a family, or other responsibilities make it necessary to work, even if we don’t like what we do. For this reason, many of us just drift into any job that comes along for convenience.
Society tends to judge us by what we do for a living, although it’s not really a true reflection of who we are. It’s a shame that most people are working to live rather than living to work.
If you have a skill, a passion or desire to work on something, you owe it to yourself, to at least try. The American Psychological Association published an article in 2013 which explains the importance of job satisfaction.
How you approach finding the perfect job, and your attitude towards it will help in your endeavour to do what you’d prefer to do. Here are some practical tips to help in manifesting a job you really want:
1. Be Clear About What You Want to Do
In order to manifest a job, you should be very clear in your mind exactly what you want your career to be. Spend some time thinking about this. If you have a skill you’d like to use in your employment, focus on that.
Think about what you do want and what you don’t want. For example, you might not want a long commute each day or perhaps you don’t want to be solely office based. Build a picture in your mind of your perfect job.
Consider sacrifices you may have to make, ask yourself why you want to do this job and how you’re going to get there. Having a plan is a good plan! This when you instruct your conscious mind to deliver to the subconscious.
2. Take Responsibility for Yourself and Your Outlook
There is no one responsible for you other than yourself, so take that responsibility. If things don’t go as you’d prefer, it’s down to you.
Don’t be hard on yourself, but only you can make it happen. Ask for advice from others, but you’re the one that must take action to make things happen.
Others can give an opinion if you need to decide, but that decision is yours, only yours.
If you need to work at improving or preparing something, spend time to get it right. Put yourself on to the path of matching the job that you want.
Preparing for an interview is extremely important, it will improve your mindset and confidence. You’ll be able to attend the meeting with one less thing to worry about. The UK’s Graduate Prospects website offers some very good advice on preparing for an interview.
Look at where you are and where you want to be. Let you mind see a clear path. Your conscious mind will send clear messages to the subconscious and it will aim to deliver.
3. Believe You Can do It
We all hold limiting beliefs inside us, but it isn’t our fault. They were put there, usually for our protection, but not for our current situation.
By readying yourself for the job you want, it is possible to overcome these unhelpful beliefs. You’ll build self-belief.
Get to know as much as you can about the industry you want to be in. Which specific skills and qualifications do you need? If you want to be a professional footballer, get super-fit, learn the skills and tricks of the game, so you’re ready for it.
Every step you take to prepare will help to build your confidence. As it builds, you’ll begin to believe more and more that you’re capable of doing it.
Self-belief is not something you wear on your exterior for others to see. It is something which emanates from within but is visible on the outside.
Your newly built confidence sends a clear message from the conscious to the unconscious and it is that which creates belief.
4. Act Like You Already Have it
Whether you want to manifest a job offer or learn how to manifest a job and money, there’s one important thing you should do. It might feel strange but acting like you’ve already achieved it will be a big help.
It’s a bit like playing a game, although it doesn’t mean you should go crazy. The idea is to use your imagination focus on the outcome. This will create feelings which will be picked up by your subconscious.
Your feelings reflect what you’re thinking, so by imagining you’ve achieved, the subconscious will accept it as real. This puts you in the frame of mind to live and act in a way which “attracts” the outcome to you.
For example, if your goal is to become a top athlete, by acting the part, you’ll begin living a healthier lifestyle. You’re preparing yourself to be ready for the role that’s on its way to you.
Thoughts are vibrations of energy and you are aligning yours with similar vibrations. This how the Law of Attraction works, with like vibrations “attracting” each other.
Doing this exercise helps to build your confidence and beliefs. It also puts you into a place where you’re a perfect fit for the job you want.
5. Be Aware of Any Signs
When you undertake to improve yourself in any way, you’ll become more sensitive and may notice signs that you’re achieving it. It’s nothing unusual, you’re changing how you live so you’re bound to notice things differently.
You might begin to move in different circles as a result of your changed ways. Perhaps you’ll start being invited to functions which can of benefit and meet influential people who can help.
By changing the way in which you think and act, will change what happens to you. Things might not change overnight, and the outcome might not be what you expect. The important thing is to keep your focus on where you want to be, although you shouldn’t be afraid of adapting along the way.
Are You Ready to Commit?
Commitment is key to success. There’s no point in doing things by half. You’re either completely in or you’re not, there’s no in-between. Once you know the job you want don’t let your focus slip.
Expecting things to happen won’t make them happen. It’s the things you do on the back of that expectation that will bring about the opportunities.
When you’re committed you are persistent and dedicated to getting that job. If there are setbacks, you overcome them because there can only be one outcome.
As you progress be grateful for what you learn along the way. Be grateful that you are taking control of your life. Show gratitude to the way your life is changing, to the gains you’ve made and that you’re on the path to manifest a job. Not just any job, but the dream job you want.
