Bored? Demotivated? Used? Abused? Do you currently use these words to describe your situation when asked about your work?
Are you torn between leaving your current job and staying just for employment stability purposes? Do you feel like losing your self-esteem because you feel that you don’t get much credit from your work as much as your boss capitalizes on your outputs to get a better raise and a promotion? Do you feel that your needs are being set aside by your company and that your superiors are only after having you get the job done no matter what the cost?
Admittedly, there are moments in my life that I entertain negative thoughts like this. However, these thoughts are so powerful that they creep in to my soul causing me sickness, disappointments, and further trouble. I feel blessed that I stumbled upon this book written by the best-selling author of inspirational and self-help books. The book “You can heal your life” really did its amazing job in healing my life. It’s like a best friend, a confidante, and an adviser that you can bring along with you wherever you go.
Here’s an excerpt from the book where Louise Hay talked about “Work.”
“I am deeply fulfilled by all that I do.”
Wouldn’t you love to have the above affirmation be true for you? Perhaps you have been limiting yourself by thinking some of these thoughts:
I can’t stand this job.
I hate my boss.
I don’t earn enough money.
They don’t appreciate me at work.
I can’t get along with the people at work.
I don’t know that I want to do.
This is negative, defensive thinking. What kind of good position do you think this will get you? It is approaching the subject form the wrong end.

If you are in a job you don’t care for, if you want to change your position, if you are having problems at work, or if you are out of work, the best way to handle it is this:
Begin by blessing your current position with love. Realize that this is only a stepping stone on your pathway. You are where you are because of your own thinking patterns. If “they” are not treating you the way you would like to be treated, then there is a pattern in your consciousness that is attracting such behavior. So, in your mind, look around your current job or the job you had last, and being to bless everything with love – the building, the elevators, or stairs, the rooms, the furniture, and equipment, the people you work for and the people you work with – and each and every customer.
Begin to affirm for yourself that, “I always work for the most wonderful bosses.” “My boss always treats me with respect and courtesy,” and, “My boss is generous and easy to work for.” This will carry forward with you all your life, and if you become a boss, then you be like that, too.
If you want to leave your job, then begin to affirm that you release your current job with love to the next person who will be delighted to have it.
Know that there are people out there looking for exactly what you have to offer, and that you are being brought together on the checkerboard of life even now.
If there is someone at work who bother you, again bless them with love every time you think of them. In each and every one of us is every single quality. If this person is critical, begin to affirm that he or she is loving and full or praise. If he or she is grouchy, affirm that this person is cheerful and fun to be around. If he or she is cruel, affirm that this person is gentle and compassionate. If you see only good qualities in this person, then that is what he or she has to show to you, no matter what behavior is displayed toward others.

If you like your job but feel you are not getting paid enough, then begin to bless your current salary with love. Expressing gratitude for what we already have enables it to grow. Affirm that you are now opening your consciousness to a greater prosperity and that part of that prosperity is an increased salary. Affirm that you deserve a raise, not for negative reasons, but because you are a great asset to the company and the owners want to share their profits with you. Always do the best you can on the job, for then, the Universe will know that you are ready to be lifted out of where you are to the next and even better place.
Having read Louise Hay’s book, I am reminded to be more grateful with my blessings, more generous in sharing what I have – my talents, my earnings, and even my love and compassion, and more positive with my perspective about life, relationships, money and career.
Healing my life,
