Do you need to truly transform your work life, or find your dream job?
Whether you want a brand new position, a significant pay raise, or need some fresh direction in your hum-drum, 9-to-5 world, here are a few key sure-fire methods for turning your working wishes into a rockin’ ready reality!
Tips for Getting your Dream Job
Identify exactly who you are. What talents do you possess? What are your true deep-seated interests? What contributions can you provide a company and who are you for their team? Clarify who you are and what you are all about.
And be sure to choose your own adventure. Don’t allow your family and friends to influence your choices with their wildly varied perceptions. Discover your true calling by clarifying who you are – on the most fundamental level.
Look at your many working world and outside interests. Do you like to help people? Do you love animals? Do you just have to figure things out?
Long before we developed insecurities that helped to inform our life path (how many of us were told to become lawyers, doctors or teachers?), our hearts and minds inherently knew what we really loved. Now, you just have to translate that unaltered love into your trade or craft.
Learn as much as you can about the companies or organizations that you are applying to. You want to make sure that you are a good fit. Research the history and overall operations of the company. Learn who the main players are and what the company’s mission statement is. This is a great way to open conversations when it’s time to send a cover letter and is also very impressive during the interview process.
You’d be surprised how many job candidates are not as prepared when it comes to starting that career they’ve always wanted. Many firms take great special interest in those who show passion and diligence in learning – investing, really – about their company.
Visualize that you already there! It takes a little practice, but it is well worth the many fruitful returns. Focus on experiencing what and how it will be like in that new dreamy job. Connect to those feelings of happiness, excitement and accomplishment now, as if it already is. Visualize these things now and you’ll be there in no time.
Act as though your dream job is already up and running – a fact of life. Take actions now that support where you want to be. Make good choices that are genuinely aligned with your career.
So, say, if you want a promotion, spend money and use resources like you would when you have the promotion. Don’t go crazy; unleash a few extra dollars fearlessly and make some powerful decisions. These will surely do the trick!
Behavior is something that supports who we are, both today and tomorrow. Behave as though you are already where you want to be in your job and in your life and watch how things magically alter in your favor on a regular basis.
Ask yourself who you are being. Do you behave like an accomplished, happy and satisfied person or a person who just longs for things that are, essentially, not to be? Choose to be a winner – instead of losing out on you!
In many ways, your dream job actually wants you, too. But you get it only if you can get out of your own way. These job-getting tips will help you to sidestep any self-imposed limitations, so that what you desire is free to unfold in your life. It simply takes imagination, will, belief and the transformation of our behaviors.
If you can take these tips and utilize them with the power of now, the sky’s the limit!
