Job searching can be a daunting and stressful task for anyone. The job market is tough, the competition is fierce, and sometimes it feels like you’re banging your head against a brick wall with no success. However, if you follow these key steps to manifesting a job, your chances of getting hired will go up significantly.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to use the power of your mind to create opportunities for yourself and take control of your future career. Let’s begin.
Step 1: Set Your Intention.
The first step to manifesting anything, including a job, is to know what you want.
What are your goals?
What are your passions?
What makes you excited to get up in the morning?
Once you know what it is that you want, you can begin to create a plan of action that will help you achieve it. It’s useful to write down what you want to manifest in concise, present tense, positive terms.
For example: “I am now working in my dream job as a ___________.”
This sets your intention and sends a powerful manifestation message to the universe.
Step 2: Believe It Can Happen.
If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will. So it’s essential to have confidence in yourself and your abilities, and to have the knowledge that you’re willing to put in the work necessary to achieve your goals.
Remember: Anything is possible if you set your mind to it, but the realization of your intention needs to feel believable to you. So, when you’re visualizing yourself in the job you want, there should be positive emotions that come with the mental movie (e.g. happiness, satisfaction, excitement, etc).
But if these visualizations are instead full of self-doubt and skepticism, it’s wise to either unpick those limiting beliefs or choose something else that truly ignites your imagination and fills you with positive emotion, motivation, and purpose.
Step 3: Visualize Yourself in the Desired Reality.
The power of visualization is real. By picturing yourself in the job you want, you’re planting powerful seeds of success in your subconscious mind. Not only that, but you’re also training your brain to actually look for opportunities that will help you get there.
When visualizing, it’s important to be as specific as possible. See yourself doing the tasks that are required of the job, and feel the emotions that come with it. If you can, try to put yourself in a situation where you’re already doing the job. This will help your subconscious mind to better understand and accept the visualization as reality.
You can also use affirmations to support your visualization and help program your mind for success. For example, “I am confident and capable of doing this job.” Use these affirmations as you’re visualizing to really embed them in your subconscious.
Step 4: Take Action When Opportunities Arise.
While visualization is a powerful tool, it’s not enough on its own. You need to take action towards your goals as well. This means putting in the hard work and dedicating yourself to your dreams, and it means taking action in the external world.
Think about what you need to do to get closer to your goals and start taking steps towards them. Oftentimes, this means networking with people who are in a position to help you, studying for relevant exams, or even just doing some research on the company you want to work for.
While manifestation may open the door for you… it won’t force you to walk through it. That’s something only you can do through your active choice and willingness to move forward.
Ultimately, the manifestation of your new job will often be a result of all the small actions you take on a daily basis. So while all of these steps are important, action can often be the missing ingredient when nothing seems to be happening yet.
Step 5: Detach From Needing a Specific Outcome.
In order for manifestation to work in the best way possible, you need to detach yourself from the outcome. This may well seem counterintuitive. After all, you want your dream job, otherwise, why would you even be trying to manifest it?
This riddle is solved by understanding that you can’t necessarily control the how and when of your manifestations. You put your trust in the universe and let go of “needing” things to happen. So while you’re setting a clear intention of desiring a job, you’re not necessarily attached to any specific job. If your desire slips into the energy of desperation or craving, it’s possible that you’ll manifest and repel your goal in equal measure, forever keeping it just out of arm’s reach.
Instead, try to stay in a place of appreciation and joy for all the good things that are already in your life. This will keep your energy field positive and open, making it more likely for you to manifest your desires.
Step 6: Nurture Your Gratitude.
Gratitude is one of the most powerful emotions we can experience, as it opens us up to more good things in our lives. By being grateful for what we have, even if it’s small, we’re inviting more positive things to come our way.
Keep in mind that like attracts like, and gratitude is an emotion that’s associated with abundance, whereas lack is associated with deprivation. So choosing to be grateful for everything we have is not merely wishful thinking, but a powerful force that can help us to manifest our dreams into reality.
Remember to celebrate your small victories, as these will help to keep you motivated on your journey. Be grateful for the lessons learned, and for the progress you’ve made thus far. When we focus on the good things in our lives, we’re opening up our energy to more of the same. And as you continue to manifest your dream job, be sure to stay grateful for all the wonderful things that come with it (including the journey it took to get there).
Step 7: Harness Your Power of Intention.
One of the most important steps to manifestation is tapping into our innate powers of intention. What we focus on expands. When we focus on our dreams and what we want to achieve, we’re putting out a powerful signal to the universe that we’re open to more of those things in our lives.
This doesn’t mean that we become attached to the outcome, as that will only serve to limit what’s possible. But by staying positive and focused on what we want, we’re opening ourselves up to more opportunities and helping the universe to align itself with our desires.
The more we do this, the more powerful our intentions will become, and the easier it will be to manifest what we want in our lives. So the key here is to run through these manifestation steps often.
Don’t simply try these techniques once or twice and discard them. Instead, make them a regular ritual (first thing in the morning and just before bed are ideal times). Spend 5 to 10 minutes each day running through these steps, and see how your life begins to change.
Overcome Self-Doubt and Limiting Beliefs About Job Hunting
Self-doubt is one of the biggest hurdles we face when it comes to job hunting. Sometimes we question our skills, our experience, and our ability to succeed. This can be a major roadblock on the path to finding our dream job.
But there’s good news – self-doubt can be overcome. And it all starts with changing your mindset. If you follow the steps below, you should be able to cut any lingering self-doubt down to size:
Step 1: Acknowledge Your Fear.
The first step is to acknowledge that fear is there. Don’t try to push it away or ignore it. Face it head-on and understand that it’s normal to feel scared at times when looking for a new job.
Step 2: Make a List of Your Strengths.
The next step is to make a list of your strengths. Write down everything you’re good at, no matter how small. This can include skills, talents, and past experiences. Focus on these abilities to remind yourself of what you have to offer.
Step 3: Reframe Your Fear.
Now it’s time to reframe your fear. Take that fear and turn it into excitement. When you look at your fear, ask yourself “what if?” What if this new job is exactly what I’ve been looking for? What if it’s a perfect match?
You can use this process in addition to the 7-step formula, especially if self-doubts or fear seems to be blocking your manifestation abilities or stopping you from seizing opportunities that may be right in front of you (but the self-doubt blocks from view).
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I’m not sure if I’m doing this right. How can I tell?
A: One way to tell if you’re on the right track is to monitor your emotions. Are you feeling positive and joyful, or are you feeling stressed and anxious? If it’s the latter, then you may need to tweak your approach.
Another way to tell is to look at what’s happening in your life. Are you seeing more of what you want come into your experience, or are you still struggling? If you’re seeing more of what you don’t want, then it may be time to adjust your approach.
Q: I’m having a hard time staying positive. What can I do?
A: One thing you can do is to shift your focus from the outcome to the process. Instead of worrying about whether or not you’ll get the job, focus on things like preparing for the interview, networking with people in your field, and doing your research. This will help keep you positive and focused on the things you can control directly.
Another thing you can do is to practice some gratitude exercises. This will help you to focus on the good things in your life, which will help to keep your energy field positive and open.
Q: It seems like nothing is happening. What’s wrong?
A: If you’ve been following the steps and nothing has happened, then it’s possible that you’re manifesting and repelling your goal in equal measure. In this case, you may need to adjust your approach. One thing you can do is to make sure your goal is in line with your values. If it’s not, then you may be subconsciously sabotaging yourself.
Another possibility is that you’re putting out negative energy without realizing it. This could be due to anger, resentment, or other negative emotions. If this is the case, work on clearing these emotions before you can move forward.
Finally, don’t forget that the universe may be bringing opportunities that you’re missing. Action may be all that’s required on your part to manifest your goal. So be sure to stay alert and look for opportunities that can help you.
Q: I’m afraid that if I manifest my goal, it won’t be what I really want.
A: This is a common fear, but it’s unfounded. The universe will never give us anything that’s not in line with our highest good. So if you’re fearful that your goal may not be what you really want, then trust that the universe will guide you in the right direction. If you’re not content, you can always pick a new path.
Q: I don’t know what job I want. How can I manifest something if I don’t know what it is?
A: This is also a common problem, but it’s easily resolved. All you need to do is to get clear on what you want. This can be done by sitting down and writing out a list of possibilities. Once you have a list, focus on the ones that feel the most interesting or exciting to you. The more specific you are about what you want, the easier it will be to manifest.
Q: I’m having a hard time getting started. What can I do?
A: One thing you can do is to start with something small. If you’re trying to manifest a new job, for example, start by writing down five things you’d like in a new job. Once you have a list, focus on the one that feels the most exciting or appealing to you. Once you have a clear focus, take some time to daydream about what your perfect job would be like. This will help to get you in the right frame of mind to follow the steps and start taking action.
So there you have it: The 7 step formula to manifesting your dream job. Following these steps will help you stay positive and focused on what you want while opening yourself up to more opportunities. Be patient and trust in the process – it may take time, but eventually, you will achieve your goal. And when you do, be sure to celebrate.
Manifesting your dream job can seem like a daunting task, but with the right techniques, it’s within your reach. Remember the universe will always give us what we need, so be sure to focus on what you want, not what you don’t want.
It’s also important to be patient, as the process may take time. But keep your eyes peeled for the opportunities and lessons within each experience that comes to you. And finally, don’t forget to enjoy the journey. After all, the journey is what will teach you the most about yourself and what you truly want in life. So get started today and see what the universe has in store for you.
