A Simple Formula + 10 Mantras for the Career and Life You Love

I started my career as a computer programmer which might be why I'm a sucker for a formula.  I think I have figured out a formula for having a career and life you love and a technique to keep you on track.
 

Your thoughts + Your words + Your actions = A life and career that you love
 
TRUTH: If you are on a job search or thinking about changing jobs or careers then following this formula will make the whole process one of joy and ease.

TRUTH: There is no need to make things hard on yourself.

TRUTH: It is easy peasy!
 



4 Simple Steps


Following the formula requires some basic steps.

STEP 1. Everything, I MEAN EVERYTHING in your life starts with a thought. Recognize and accept this as TRUTH in capital letters. Once you feel total and complete acceptance of this TRUTH you are ready for STEP 2.

STEP 2. When you have a thought ask yourself, “Does this thought align with a career and life that I love?”

If your answer is yes- put your full attention on that thought, expand that thought, love on it, make that thought a part of you. This thought is running through every cell in your body. This thought is expanding out of you like rays of sunshine from the core of the sun.



Once that thought is a part of you then you are ready to move to STEP 3.

If the answer is no-let it go IMMEDIATELY!  Do not dwell. Do not analyze. Do not wonder why it is there. It does not matter.  Your only action in that moment is to release that thought that does not align with the career and life you love. By releasing this thought, you are creating space for the thought that IS aligned.

Now, put your full attention on that thought, expand that thought, love on it, make that thought a part of you. This thought is running through every cell in your body. This thought is expanding out of you like rays of sunshine from the core of the sun.

Once that thought is a part of you are ready to move to STEP 3.

STEP 3. In step 3 you create words that match that thought. Write them down. Say them out loud every day for as many times as needed in order to feel the energy and power of your words. These words are your Career and Life Mantras.  If thoughts that are not in support of the career and life mantras start to creep in again, no worries, just go back to STEP 2. Otherwise, move to STEP 4.

STEP 4. Observe how your life circumstances begin to align with these thoughts and words. Observe how you have this feeling of inspired action that you want to take. Observe yourself taking inspired action. Observe how people and options and resources come to you. Observe how you are living the career and life that you love. Smile! Give thanks! Appreciate it! Rinse and repeat as necessary.
