If you want a career you are passionate about, you are not alone.
Many people want to find a career they are passionate about but finding your passion is no walk in the park.
However, while difficult, it can be done.
If you want to follow your passion, you start by developing a certain type of mindset.
In addition, you also need to remember some specific life lessons.
If you want to manifest your dream career—one that you are truly passionate about, keep the following basics in mind:
Leave when you know things are not working.
When you are working in a job that sucks the life out of you, it’s time to look for something else.
Sadly, many people know that they don’t like their jobs and would rather do something else.
The problem is when they fail to change anything or don’t even know where to begin and what to do.
The important thing is not to allow apathy, uncertainty, and fear to hinder you from leaving a job you are not happy with and pursuing the one you are truly passionate about.
Even if you don’t really have a clear idea of what you would rather do, you won’t be able to find it if you remain in your present miserable situation.
Work on finding out how you can unclog your energy channels and release any resistance.
Ideally, you need to get out of any bad working situation you are in and focus on finding out what you want to do instead.
If you know what you want already, it is recommended that you find the courage to pursue it rather than staying in a job you are not passionate about.
It would also help if you have a sense of urgency that can motivate you to move forward.
Once you direct your energy towards the goal of finding a job you truly want, you will vibrate on a higher frequency.
Your energy will tell the universe that you are ready and fully committed to working on something that can change your life significantly.
Allow yourself to be guided by your curiosity.
The concept of finding what you are passionate about can be overwhelming and stressful for many.
This can get especially daunting if you look at people who seem to have their lives all figured out.
When you find yourself worrying or comparing, stop.
Make sure you don’t dwell on those emotions and feelings.
Instead, allow yourself to be guided by your intuition and curiosity.
Your inquisitiveness can lead you to options that are not obvious at first.
In some instances, the interests that appeal to you can seem shallow, impractical, or irrelevant.
However, you need to trust yourself.
Remember that you are drawn to things for a reason.
The reasons can become obvious to you as you move forward.
If you are still at the stage where you don’t even know where to start, you can begin by asking yourself some very important questions.
- What skills do I want to learn?
- How will I spend my time if I am motivated by love and passion alone?
- What would I do if money was no object?
- Which classes should I take?
Prioritize other things aside from money.
Understandably, you need to be financially secure as you pursue your dreams and true passion.
This means you should be able to meet all your basic needs.
However, you should not let money be your main motivator.
If you want to spend the rest of your life doing something that makes you inspired and passionate, you need to be motivated by other things aside from money.
If your financial goals only come second to finding a career that truly satisfies you, you will eventually find that you will thrive and bring abundance your way.
At the heart of things, what you should do is find a career that won’t feel like work for you.
This is where your unique contributions will truly shine.
Besides, if you try to pursue a career that does not feel like work, your unique talents and abilities can truly shine.
This makes it a lot easier for you to attract more success.
So the idea is that you don’t need to choose between money and your passion.
The bottom line is to know when you should not allow money to be a priority when pursuing your passion.
When you find your passion, you can trust that abundance will eventually come to you as a result.
Learn how to empower yourself.
As you pursue what you want, it is crucial that you don’t set any limits for yourself.
Sometimes, you set limits without being aware of them.
The self-imposed limitations can be caused by low self-esteem, fear, or the desire to not take any responsibilities.
No matter what the reason, if you hold yourself back by having low expectations or imposing limits, you will send the universe mixed signals about what you truly want.
It’s no coincidence that many Law of Attraction techniques (i.e., taking note of your best traits and saying affirmations) are geared toward making you feel good about yourself and your abilities.
This is crucial as it can effectively boost your chances of finding a job that you are truly passionate about.
Be vigilant when it comes to imposing limitations.
Be observant and keep a close eye on this aspect as you go.
If you feel like you are holding yourself back, ask yourself why.
From there, you can do what needs to be done so you can free yourself from any limitations, imposed or otherwise and evolve into a more passionate, empowered, and successful individual.
Think more deliberately.
If you want to manifest your dream career or job, you need to use intentional thought.
Rather than just reacting to your current situation, choose to be deliberate about what you are thinking and feeling.
Once you are clear about your goals, it becomes easier for you to imagine how you will feel once you have reached it.
For instance, let’s say your dream job is to become a bestselling author.
Imagine how it would feel when you finish your initial manuscript or make it to the bestseller list.
You can also imagine what it would feel like to sign your first-ever book deal.
These positive thoughts can help you move forward and help you create the future you want rather than staying stuck in the present.
Focus on the future.
To find the job you are truly passionate about, you need to focus on what you want rather than on the things that you don’t want.
When you are stuck with a job that you don’t like, you can easily get consumed by undesirable thoughts like you hate your job or you are wasting your time.
When you focus on what you don’t want, you do nothing but reinforce your current situation.
You can reverse this by focusing on your ultimate goal.
Replace the negative images you have in your head with positive ones.
Once you are able to shift your thinking, it becomes a lot easier for you to manifest the future you truly want.
Believe that you can get to where you want to be.
Regardless of the effort, you put into achieving a certain goal, if you believe in your heart that it is not possible, you will not be able to achieve it.
Believing is not something that is innate to you.
Believing is a choice.
If you want to develop the mindset of belief, start by adding a visualization practice to your daily routine.
It would also be a good idea to consider creating a dream or vision board.
By putting a vision board in a place where you can see it daily, you will become more inspired to reach your goals and take action.
You will eventually start to notice that you are doing unexpected things that can move you closer to your goals.
Take inspired action.
Thoughts are useless if you don’t take any action.
Some actions are clear-cut and straightforward.
For instance, if you want to be a professional author, you can start taking writing classes.
Or if you want to pursue project management, you can enroll in a certification course.
While those action steps are clear, some are less apparent and might require that you tap into your intuition.
This is where you need to work with your gut feelings.
Listen to your gut feelings and follow your instincts.
If there is a specific class or conference that you feel like you need to attend or a specific person that you need to reach out to, do it even if you are unsure why at first.
The Law of Attraction is not instantaneous and it’s not magic. Making it work for you will require effort, patience, and even training. The time it will take for you to reach your dream goal or in this case, your dream career will be different for everyone. However, the recipe to achieve it is simple. Combine positive thoughts with inspired action and you will be enjoying your dream career before you know it.
