Adjust your attitude and perspective

You hear it everywhere…times are tough; it's hard to make ends meet; there are no jobs; etc.

Don't fall into this trap and negative perspective. Here's an exercise to help you change your perspective and maintain a positive attitude during your job search:

First, write down 5 things that are working in your life. From your health, your job – anything that’s working well and you are grateful for. Starting by focusing on what’s working gets your brain into a more positive mental state; an “attitude of gratitude.”

Next, write down 5 things in your life that aren’t working. Then ask yourself, is there anything good about these things? Could there possibly be a silver lining? Or are these things I need to work through or around, and how can I do that?

As you examine the things that aren’t working in your life, from a more positive mental place, you have an opportunity to change your perspective by changing your thinking. It’s all about the power of your thoughts.
