Jason is a longtime STRETCH YOURSELF client... he's used my techniques to create success in his life a few years ago... but recently the economic downturn threw him for a loop.
He got laid off... something he wasn't expecting and it happened just as he was preparing to get married.
Jason remembered that he could call me whenever he had questions so he took me up on my offer.
He explained what had happened and how he was concerned that he wouldn't be able to find a job in such a tough market.
Jason is a nurse and had worked mainly in private care facilities. He asked me what he should do and how he should get started.
When Jason called me one of his first comments was:
"I'm worried about finding a job in this kind of market. Things are tough out there and I don't want to fool myself into thinking it's going to be easy."
My response: "Don't be worried and don't be concerned. The job you want already exists, otherwise you wouldn't want it. You just have to find it. So let's focus on what you want, let's focus on attracting the opportunities and let's be open to all possibilities."
The last part is always the toughest. Being open to all possibilities. Because this means being open to the possibility of doing something other than nursing in a private care facilities or doing something completely different from nursing.
When you're open to all possibilities you trust that your higher self will guide you to what is best for you. What you want is still valid, but now you're open to something even better. The possibilities are endless.
We went over a number of things including the economy.
Here's what I suggested:
“Yes the economy is not great - but people are still hiring.”
“There's always a need for nurses especially good nurses.”
“Everyone suffers when the economy nosedives... but usually there are always jobs... regardless of the economy.”
This belief has to be ingrained... you have to firmly believe that the job you want exists...and if an opportunity passes it is divine order that you weren't meant to have that job, there is something better. It took a few sessions but Jason finally got it.
He called me back a few weeks later and said he finally understood that the job he wanted existed and that he would find it. But there was still that nagging doubt. He was concerned he wouldn't make right impression, say the wrong thing, come across as nervous.
We had to get his mind and subconscious mind to look at the positive side... that way he would attract positive situations and opportunities.
I explained that while he had accepted that this job existed he didn't quite believe that he would get the job. I explained that he had to focus on his positive qualities and his strengths. Being nervous wasn't really an issue because as a nurse, he was used to speaking to groups of people, even in some trying situations.
He realized he had to look at things differently and focus on his positive qualities and strengths... so that his subconscious mind focused on the positive and not the negative.
We then created some specific declarations, targeted an action plan to help him achieve his goal, and create the support that his belief needed to succeed.
We also applied the other exercises outlined in STRETCH YOURSELF.
Jason went to work and applied the material regularly. That was back in June.
Earlier this week I got an email from him (not surprisingly) he got the job he wanted.
Jason explained he had been on 3 interviews and got all 3 job offers.
Petty cool huh? And it only took less than a couple of months.
He knows he's made the right choice.
Jason succeeded because he changed his beliefs.
He didn't let his reality decide his future.
He created his future by focusing the power of his mind and subconscious mind to create the success he wanted and took action to support his beliefs.
He focused on his positive qualities.
Jason believed in himself and his ability.
He applied the material, stayed consistent and stuck with it.
You too can have the same success.
I said Jason had been a long time STRETCH YOURSELF student and good friend. He applied the material years ago to create the success he wanted at that time.
So why did he slip up? Why did things change?
Jason stopped working with the material. He stopped being consistent.
That happens to a lot of people. When things go well, they stop applying what works and start coasting and before they know it, the fall back into their old negative thinking habits. Then things change again and they have to start all over again.
Jason knows he has to stay consistent and keep applying the material all the time.
Even when things go well. You keep applying the material because when you do that things get even better. When you are exercising to lose weight, you don't stop working out because you lost the weight. You maintain by keeping a consistent exercise regiment.
In a month Jason will be married and in a new job. He's heading in positive direction creating the life he wants.
Now it's your turn.
You too can succeed.
You too can enjoy the success and happiness you want and deserve.
Don't let the economy hold you back.
Don't believe that you can't do something just because somebody else says so.
You can do anything you want.
Believe in yourself and your ability.
Remember -- you only get one life and one chance.
Make the most of it. Stop defeating yourself, stop limiting yourself.
Stretch Yourself and create all the success you want and deserve in life.
