Job Search Jitters?

Exodus 3:11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”

If you’re one of the millions of Americans feeling insecure about your career challenges, take heart. Even Moses doubted that he was up to the work he was called to do.

Instead of focusing on why you won’t succeed, I recommend you:

  • focus on how you can make sure you will
  • write down all the things you’re most proud of having accomplished during your career
  • figure out who can help you be successful

If you’re interested in learning a process for overcoming your limiting beliefs and stressful thoughts, consider investigating The Work by Byron Katie, or Katie, as she’s known. She contends that the only time we experience stress is when we’re being a thought that isn’t true. An example of this can be seen in the biblical reference above. Clearly, Moses *was* equipped to successfully bring the Israelites out of Egypt. For more about The Work, go to www.thework.com

Finally, two parting thoughts:

It’s not what you know it’s who you know — foster sound, strong, mutually beneficial relationships with people who are in a position to help you. Perhaps it’s time to call in the big guns. Moses had God helping him, and that’s always a plus in my book. Who do you have, or who can you get, to help you?

Control the controllables — there’s a lot in this world that is beyond our control. Recognize that the only person you can control is you, and align your thoughts and actions to be congruent with your goals. What is one thing you can do today to boost your confidence level?
