Act Your Way Into A New Way Of Thinking
Are you working at a job you can't stand? Would you like
to quit, but are afraid you'll attract more of the same? Often
people write to me with questions like: I want out of my present
job so badly. How can I speed things up so I can quit?
The best way to shorten the time spent in a negative situation
is to focus on all the positives you can. If you can find
something to appreciate--even if it's appreciating a regular
paycheck which DOES cover some of your essentials--you will
begin to feel better. As you feel better, you'll find it easier
to notice another thing you appreciate about your job.
What if you can't find a single positive aspect of your present
job? If you don't change the way you feel about your current
job, you will simply attract another miserable job.
"Sometimes it's easier to act your self into a new way of
thinking, than it is to think your self into a new way of
acting." -Jo Berry, author Years ago, in Los Angeles, California,
I heard Jo Berry speak about how to get rid of a bad habit.
Jo asked her audience, "How long have you thought about giving
up this habit? Has it done any good to just think about it?"
At the time, I had thought and thought about quitting smoking.
No matter how much I thought about quitting, I had not made
it through one day in over ten years without a cigarette.
(Now, through understanding how the Law of Attraction works,
I can see that by "pushing against" a habit, I was reinforcing
Jo told us that if we started to ACT LIKE what we wanted to
be or do, then our thoughts and feelings would follow. In
the flash of a moment, I understood that I could quit smoking
by acting like a non-smoker. Of course the next question was,
"How does a non-smoker act?" Quickly followed by, "What does
a non-smoker do with their hands?" The answer came ever so
gently: "They fold their hands." I figured that folding my
hands when I wanted a cigarette was symbolic as well as appropriate!
And it worked. I haven't had or wanted a cigarette since Sept.
Instead of trying to change the way you think about your job,
begin to get a picture of yourself acting like you enjoy THIS
job. What would you say or do differently? Try ACTING in a
new way then notice how much better you feel.
Soon you'll find yourself in a more positive feeling place,
offering a new vibration which will either attract different
situations in your current job or you'll find yourself working
in a new place that feels great! Who knows--you may end up
LOVING your current job!
