I know that the thoughts in my mind have everything to do with my working conditions, so I consciously choose my thoughts. My thoughts are supportive and positive. I choose prosperity thinking; therefore, I am prosperous. I choose harmonious thoughts; therefore, I work in a harmonious atmosphere. I love getting up in the morning knowing that I have important work to do today. I have challenging work that is deeply fulfilling. My heart glows with pride when I think of the work that I do. I am always employed, always productive. Life is good. And so it is!
When people ask me about my purpose in life, I tell them that my work is my purpose. It is very sad to know that most people hate their jobs and, even worse, that they don’t know what they want to do. Finding your life’s purpose, finding work that you love to do, is loving who you are.
Maybe you are in a job now where you feel stuck, or you hate it, or you find that you are just putting in your time to bring home a paycheck. Well, there are definitely things you can do to make positive changes. The most powerful tool you can use to transform your situation is the power of blessing with love. No matter where you work or how you feel about the place, bless it with love. I mean that literally. Say, “I bless my job with love.” but don’t stop there. Bless with the love the building, the equipment in the building, your desk if you have one, the counter if you work at one, the various machines you may use, the products, the customers, the people you work with, the people you work for, and anything associated with this job. It will work wonders.
If you hate the job you have now, you will take that feeling of hatred with you. Even if you get a good new job, in a short time you will find yourself hating the new one, too. Whatever feelings you have within you now, you will carry to the new place. If you now live in a world of discontent, you will find it everywhere you go. You must change your consciousness now, before you can see positive results in your life. Then, when the new job comes into your life, it will be good, and you will appreciate it and enjoy it.
If you were raised with the belief that you must “work hard” to earn a living, it is time to let that belief go. Do what you love, and the money will come. Love what you do, and the money will come. You have a right to enjoy earning money. Your responsibility to Life is to participate in enjoyable activities. As you find a way to do something that you enjoy, Life will show you the way to prosperity and abundance. Almost always, that activity is playful and joyful. Our inner guidance never gives us “shoulds.” The purpose of life is to play. When work becomes play, it is fun and rewarding. Remember: You decide what you want your working life to be like. Create positive affirmations to achieve it. Then declare these affirmations often. You can have the working life you want!
