If you’re feeling stuck in a job you don’t like and are looking to move into something more in line with your purpose and what you love, here’s the catch-you need to be in the vibrational vicinity of what you want before it can manifest in your life.
There’s a saying that you can’t leave something until you love it. That simply means you have to stop complaining about how much you hate your current job and find things that make it more enjoyable. Focus on what you can find to like about where you are while holding the vision of where you want to be. When you do, you’ll be in alignment with what you want to create.
Here are some suggestions to get you on your way:
1. Appreciation-What we focus on expands. So, what do you appreciate in your work situation? Make a list of the positive aspects of where you are. Is there a co-worker whose company you enjoy? Have you learned any new skills? What perks do you have, like health insurance? Even if the only thing you like is that you have a paycheck, be appreciative of that (yes, even if you’d like it to be larger, be grateful for what you do have coming in).
2. Laugh! Cultivate a laugh buddy. Find someone who enjoys finding funny stories to laugh about and share your laughter. Laughter is a high vibration that puts you in alignment with what you want!
3. Take breaks-False fatigue sets in when you don’t get up and move at intervals. When you have false fatigue, you’re actually less efficient than if you take regular, scheduled breaks. Movement is important, so get up and walk around to stretch your legs and get your blood flowing. If you can go outside in a natural setting that’s even better. The Pomodoro Technique suggests 25 minutes of uninterrupted work and then a short break. After four rounds, take a longer break of 20 or 30 minutes.
4. Meditate-Even if all you do is close your eyes for a minute and breathe deeply, that will renew you. You can incorporate this into your Pomodoro break! Another idea is to look at something in your environment, such as a plant or a painting that is interesting and intriguing to you. What do you like about it? What do you see that others may miss? When we move our focus away from our usual routine we open new neural pathways in our brain, which helps us stay creative. When you’re being creative, you’re more engaged with your work.
5. Decorate your
6. Be kind – Pay a colleague a compliment or do something nice for him or her. Take an interest in your co-workers. If you notice someone may be having a bad day, offer a listening ear and really pay attention when they speak.
While noticing more to like about your current situation, you can begin to take the steps you need to move into your true passion and calling. Set your intention to appreciate what you have and be eager for what’s next.
