Along the way, we try to give you insider tips and information on how to build your personal brand and stay motivated. In this article, we want to share with you some lessons we learned supporting professionals like you, who might feel frustrated when their job search takes longer than they expected. We believe that this article will benefit all job seekers who are actively searching for a new job and might be feeling a little low.
Searching for a job is a journey that might be quick and easy for some and long and tiresome for others. However, no matter how long your search is, you need to stay positive and maintain the momentum. Never, never, never ask yourself “what’s wrong with me?” and break this vicious cycle of self-doubt, the inner turmoil and stay positive.
You are more than a job title
In modern societies, our value depends – to a great extent – on the degree we earned and the job title we carry. However, your real value as a human being is not based on a degree or a job title. So, even if you have to work on a job that is beneath your qualifications, it is not the end of the world. Do not let your job identify you. There are many CEO’s and top executives, who found themselves unemployed searching for an opportunity just like you. Embrace who you are. Your self-worth comes from the contribution you make to your community.
Your perception determines your path
William Shakespeare once wrote: “there’s nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so”. Your situation is good or bad based on how you see it. When you are in a negative mental state, you only attract the negative to your life. Hanging on to misery will not draw your dream job to you and will just stress you out. Take a few moments and reflect on what is worrying you and how to stay positive and be productive.
Money and wealth are not abundances
Money makes the world goes round, but no financial compensation will guarantee abundance. The job that you might consider low and beneath your qualifications might be your only way to achieve the financial stability you seek. Once you find a job that pays you fairly and gives you a sense of accomplishment, stop beating yourself. Even if the job is not 100% your dream job, once you recognize your potential and opportunity to learn more, you will find ways to get ahead.
In the end, we want to emphasize the importance of keeping the momentum. Maintain your energy and think of those things or ideas or fears that are holding you back. Once you succeed in keeping the momentum, you will find yourself motivated again to continue your search, network and find the job that you really desire and deserve.
