Everyone probably agrees that finding a good job can be challenging at best. Consistent online searches, headhunters and personal referrals are the common ways to find a job, right?

Let me propose another way. In my work, I teach people that everything begins within—this is classic self-empowerment strategy. You are the soul creator of your life.

Keeping this idea in mind, let’s create the perfect job for you. In truth, or at least in my world of spirituality, the idea that “a perfect job is waiting for me” does not exist.

It needs to be:

  1. Designed in your mind
  2. Projected into the world for manifestation
  3. You’ll draw yourself to it

This might seem overwhelming at first, but it will get easier as time goes on.

Let’s begin with: Designed in your mind.

Designing the position is the most important strategy. Here’s where you will conceptualize exactly what you want. Write it down.

Let’s say you want to be a project manager in construction. Actually this is very broad and doesn’t say much.

  • What type of construction? Residential or commercial?
  • Full time or part time?
  • In your same city or someplace else?
  • Describe project manager.

You want to get as clear and precise as possible to land that dream job.

  • What salary do you have in mind?
  • How many hours do you want to work?
  • How much vacation time do you want?

Describe the office surroundings.

  • Want to work with women or men?
  • Want to look out the window or at a wall?
  • Work close to home (how many miles)?

Be realistic too. If it’s not traditional in your field for dogs to come to the office, don’t make it something you require to work at that particular organization.

Get very, very clear on what you want. Give yourself permission to think outside the “average” box of job descriptions too. Also, if you don’t live in a town that offers these services, you’re not being realistic. For example, you want to work in aerospace and you live in agricultural town. Are you willing to relocate?

Only commute if the salary is triple than what you want or there are other family priorities to living in a certain area.

Once you have spelled out exactly what you want, and this will take time, prioritize it to eight things. Write down eight of the most important points for this job. Be as clear as possible. Meaning, if someone else read it, they would know exactly what you want. Eight points are easy to remember and recite.

2). Next, you’ll project these eight ideas into the world for manifestation. What this means is you’ll recite to yourself and even out loud, the eight traits (can be less than eight too), like a prayer or mantra. Prioritize the list. Number one is your most important and number eight is least important.

  1. My salary is $100,000 a year.
  2. I receive a yearly bonus of $30,000.
  3. Paid child care is available.
  4. I drive five miles to work.
  5. I love my work.
  6. I work with supportive and friendly people.
  7. There are 14 days of paid vacation.
  8. I work from home 2 days a week.

Notice if you fumble over something. This means, you don’t believe you can have whatever you fumble over. This is another subject to address. We can work together to clear those mental obstacles and get you aligned to exactly what you do want.

Write the list out and recite it daily. Paste the list everywhere you look and look at it often. Your eyes will take a snapshot of the list and begin to broadcast the energy into the world for manifestation. Repeat it until you can recite the list without looking at it. This part takes a bit work. Remember the more you put into it the more you get out of it.

The second part of manifestation is creating energy around “looking for new work.” You’ll have to take some action to drive this energy into the world. Action meaning you’ll have to actually look for work and keep in mind these eight points.

3). Once you’ve recited the eight points for at least three weeks, you’ll start to draw to you those traits and perhaps other ideas you’ve had in your mind about a new job. If you get paid childcare but not the salary you want, you might want to reconsider. Is this the right place for you? Don’t get frightened that something else won’t come along. It will, as long as you pursue it mentally. Don’t give up after the first job offer—unless it’s perfect for you.

Why three weeks? It takes a bit of linear time for the mind to create an imprint of new ideas. Buddhists believe you’ll need to say a mantra a million times to create change. So, without counting three weeks is equivalent. In other words, don’t recite it five times and expect a miracle.

If you don’t spell out exactly what you want, for example getting a raise, you’ll get a $5.00 raise. Be specific. You can have anything you want. Anything!! The only thing stopping you are old beliefs that say otherwise.

The mind loves specifics and positives. Don’t start sentences with a negative word. For example, “I don’t want to drive twenty miles.” What do you want? Write it out this way instead: “I want to drive ten miles to work.”

Use this idea for anything, including finding a new house to live in, a new significant other and even a new car.
