The Law of Attraction
Do You Hate Your Job?
Here's how to get what you want out of life and take affirmative action now. If you are stuck in a rut and feel fed up then use this method. Are you working in a job you do not like? Or worse, are you still unemployed?
How to Shift Your Paradigm
I'll show you how to get that job and career you want by taking affirmative action in your life. Have you always wanted to work in a particular area that you are passionate about? People spend most of their waking hours in their job. If working in a job they hate and just for the money, it will drain their energy and passion for life.
By shifting your paradigm, you can change your life in fantastic ways. So take action on it. Control your thoughts and you control your life!
How to Achieve Your Ideal Career
Have circumstances stopped you? Do you believe you can do nothing about it? Do you believe you have to put up with what life has dealt you? Feel envious when you hear about other people and how they are doing what you always wanted to do?
You can continue to feel like this or you can change your paradigms and thought patterns and get whatever you want out of life now. You can do something positive about your job situation and your life. If you could find a way to achieve your ideal career would you take it?
What if I can show you how to change your thoughts and paradigms to find a better job? Well, I can, so read this article and start to enjoy life. Finding a different career that you are passionate about is achievable. It is not something that will happen instantly and needs a little work, but it will be worth it for that new job and life path.
What Is Your Paradigm?
Most people do not realise how by changing their thoughts they change their actions and therefore create better opportunities for themselves to have that fulfilling career change.
Your paradigms are the ideas that have been ingrained in your subconscious mind after years of conditioning. Since you were a baby, you have soaked in the thoughts and beliefs of your parents and family. When you got older, it was your friends and your workmates. You collected these beliefs and accepted them as true. Now it is time to change your paradigms and thoughts to achieve all you want out of life.
You always wanted to become a teacher. It did not happen. Have these thoughts been going around in your head forever as you spend years in an unfulfilling job(?):
'Wouldn't it have been lovely if I could have stayed on at school, gone to college, got that degree? I know I could have been a great teacher. It is such a waste. But it was not my fault. I had to leave school, get a job. I had too many responsibilities too young. I missed my chance.'
Does this sound like you? Did you miss your chance to work at teaching, become a lawyer, healer, writer, artist etc?
Well yes, you are right on one thing. That opportunity is gone. Either it wasn't there for you at all or you were unable to take it up at the time. Are you ready now? Yes, I can hear you screaming at me. It doesn't work like that, life is never that easy. Hang on a minute and listen. What if by believing it is possible it actually becomes possible?
A Teaching Career
You left school early, no qualifications. You now live without a partner, have two children. You work part-time at a job you don't particularly like. The people you work for at not too bad, but you are bored and could do with more money. So how by you believing you can become a teacher is it going to happen? That's up to you. It's your life, your path to follow. I can, however, show you how to take the first step on that path.
Believe in Yourself
First thing you have to do is believe in your dream. Say affirmations, there are some at the end of this article, and get that positive energy working for you. Once you have started this process that's when the miracle starts to happen. Yes, a miracle.
You have started a process of tapping into all the positive energies that are out there in the Universal Mind. Things to help you will start to appear. You might see a course advertised on the notice board at your child's school or in the paper.
No, it will more than likely not be a ten-week course on how to become a teacher in five easy lessons. It could be a personal development course, parenting course etc. You will know as soon as you see it.
Your subconscious mind will tell you that this is for you. At first you will not know why, but it will nag at you. You'll find excuses not to do it.
Law of Attraction Success Stories
Take Affirmative Action
That is the negative energy telling you to stay in your comfort zone. It is not what you want. You want to teach, not go on a course. Here again is where choice comes in. It is up to you. You have been given this opportunity—the one you were unable to take when you were younger due to circumstances beyond your control. Remember? This is it.
The First Step to Your New Life
We'll presume you have recognised it as such and went on this course. What happens there? You meet other like-minded people. They all have their reasons for going on this course: their own dreams. As the course moves on the energy around the group changes to an even more positive vibration.
You Are Not Alone
You tell each other your innermost thoughts, your dreams and aspirations. Things you would not even express to your own family or friends. They encourage you, you encourage them. You gain strength and energy from each other. You start to believe that you can actually do the things that have been on your mind for years.
Then all too soon the course is finished. What happens then? You feel bereft. Someone in the group, maybe not you, but someone will voice this thought. Then maybe someone will say, why does it have to end? Can we stay together as a group and do another course? A few people will drop out but most of you will have the courage and the energy to decide that you do want to carry on.
You get involved with the school or centre where the course is held. It grows from there. You learn that you do have something to contribute to this new circle of like-minded people. As this is all going on you keep up with the affirmations. The next step that is right for you will happen. It will appear to you. You'll know what it is when it is there. You'll move onto the next stage.
Subconscious Mind Power
Let's stay with the person that dreams of becoming a teacher. You soon learn through these new friends and contacts that there is another course about to start. This one gives you a chance to re-sit some exams. This course is particularly designed for people who left school early and want to sit those exams that they could never do before.
It is again aimed at people who work full time or are rearing a family. You can go to the course in the mornings or at night. You are again mixing with like-minded people. They give you energy when you need a boost. You do the same for them. Together you are strong.
Confidence in Yourself
Keep up with the affirmations and positive thinking. By this stage, you realise you are capable of doing and achieving anything you set your mind at. You pass these exams. You could go to college. You have the choice. You still need to keep that job, look after the children.
So where's that teaching jobs? Again, whatever you need to move you along your chosen path will appear. You will see another advertisement for something new. Meet people who will show you the way. The journey may be short or long, it's up to you whether you decide to enjoy it.
What energy will you travel with? The situation will always be the same, it's how you approach it and deal with it that makes the difference.
How to Take Affirmative Action
You do not have the money or the time to go to college. Fair enough. So what happens next? Accept this as a fact and then move on. Look at the situation from another angle. When you went on these courses they changed you in a positive way.
Could you start a group up yourself? Could you organise courses for other people? Do you see a need in your neighbourhood? Could you teach one of these courses? You know the benefits. You want to teach. What about a women's group, men's group. Teenagers, older people, literacy skills, etc, the list could go on and on.
Do you see where this is going? All your life you had this urge to teach. You felt cheated and frustrated because you lost your chance. Maybe it was meant to happen like this. Now you realise how other people feel while they have harboured a dream of their own. You can help them realise their potential and move them on a further step towards their chosen path.
This Can Apply to Any Path You Wish to Take
It is always your choice. Decide what you want out of this life, where you are going. Be clear and precise to yourself. You are what matters. It is your journey. If you do not know where you are going, how do you expect to get there!
Positive Affirmations Are Important
Educate yourself into believing you can achieve anything you want out of life. You have been telling yourself (educating yourself) all your life that you missed your chance, it wasn't your fault, but that's how life is, you have to put up with it. You are not educated enough, smart enough, strong enough, etc.
Affirmations change all this. Say these as often as you like. If you are alone, say them out loud with feeling and belief. If you are in work, on the bus, in the car, say them silently to yourself over and over again. You will soon teach your subconscious mind that there has been a shift in your thought pattern and now you believe you deserve all you want to achieve.
- I deserve the very best that life has to offer.
- I love myself and deserve the very best in life right now.
- I have the power and strength to change my life for the highest good of all concerned.
- I release the past. I love myself. I allow myself to be at peace and trust life.
- Something wonderful happens to me today
- I accept abundance in every area of my life right now.
- I take control of my life.
You can say all of these or just whatever ones you like. Say them over and over again. Mean them, listen to the words, and say them slowly with feeling. Make yourself believe in what you are telling yourself. Believe in it! Achieve it!
Finding a different career that you are passionate about is achievable. You can stay in that job you are in, that is your choice. People tend to prefer to stay with what they know, what they are used to.
An Affirmative Action Plan
Staying in our comfort zone is what most people prefer. Are you ready to accept you need to change your thoughts and paradigms to find a better job. Using your subconscious mind to tune into the positive energy around you is how to achieve your goal of that better career and life.
Your life and how you live it really is your choice. No matter what hardship and circumstances you are experiencing, it is how you deal with this through your thoughts that make the difference.
Self Help Books
I have read many books on the subject of paradigms and how to help yourself get a better life. Most of them were from the library. I liked this book Change Your Mind, Change Your Life so much that I wanted to keep it so I bought it online.

Yes I agree with you Deborah we need to act on our clear positive thoughts to turn them into reality
Deborah Reno from First Wyoming, then THE WORLD on January 12, 2015:
We can live our dreams, if we make up our mind to do so. The hardest thing, and the easiest thing to change is your mind. Once you have changed your mind, the entire world will change.
First step is to believe in the power of your own dreams. Then, speak of those dreams, then act on them. It can all change, in just a moment, if we allow ourselves to believe in ourselves.
Thanks for writing this article and getting the word out.
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on January 28, 2013:
Yes working in a job you do not like can be soul destroying. I have had to do it many times over the years.
The act of changing our thoughts and paradigms are easy enough but it takes patience and belief. The subliminal videos do help to lift the spirit and keep us focused.
I agree Cyndiia that it is very easy to allow negative energy to destroy all the positive energy that we have built up because the negative is so much stronger.
Being aware of our paradigms and how they effect us in life is the first step to achieving our goals.
Cynthia B Turner from Georgia on December 10, 2012:
We are what we think we are. Your article is so on target with that. Thoughts can hold you back or thoughts can make you soar.
I liked you videos as well. There is so much power in subliminal messages and we are receiving them all day long. The trick is to block the negative and accept the positive. Pair that up with a clear vision of what you want out of life and a path to get there and you're on your way.
Thanks for the great work and sharing with us.
Gail Sobotkin from South Carolina on November 04, 2012:
I agree that our thoughts and beliefs have a powerful effect on our lives, and that regardless of how old or young we are, we can always make choices that change our reality, actions and future.
Thanks for sharing this inspirational hub and the videos that you created.
Voted up across the board except for funny.
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on June 28, 2012:
Using positive energy and affirmations do work very well for getting us in the right frame of mind when looking for a new job or career. Thank you LetitiaFT for your comment
LetitiaFT from Paris via California on June 28, 2012:
This comes at a good time. Thank you for making and sharing your videos.
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on May 08, 2012:
Hello Deborah, Yes once we decide to believe in ourselves and abilities we really can change our own lives for the better. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment
Deborah Reno from First Wyoming, then THE WORLD on May 07, 2012:
I definitely believe that we can change our lives by changing our thoughts. I am wealthy beyond my wildest dreams. I am a wise and kind woman who travels the world and earns more than $10,000 every month. All of this becomes true, because I believe. And it can work for anyone.
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on May 01, 2012:
sandrabusby yes I use the videos all the time. They are relaxing and are doing me good too with the positive affirmations and vibes. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and for sharing
Sandra Busby from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA on April 24, 2012:
Love the subliminal videos. Thanks for SHARING.
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on April 24, 2012:
Yes when I get depressed sometimes I read a positive attitude book or watch some of my videos like above. That usually shakes me out of it and I then remember to keep my thoughts and ideas positive and powerful in the right direction.
Thank you cclitgirl for taking the time to leave a comment.
amymarie, I agree we need to remember how it is us that are directing our own destiny with our thoughts and actions. Thanks for the comment and votes
Amy DeMarco from Chicago on April 24, 2012:
Great hub. People need to be reminded of this. We have more power and control over our destiny than we realize. Voted up, awesome and useful
Cynthia Calhoun from Western NC on April 24, 2012:
Beautiful hub that is also inspiring. Your words are powerful. :)
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on April 24, 2012:
Yes the first thing to do to change our lives for the better is to look at ourselves, I agree CMHpno. If we do not respect and love ourselves how can we expect others to.
Thanks for reading and taking the time to leave a comment
CMHypno from Other Side of the Sun on April 24, 2012:
Very interesting hub. When I work with my hypnotherapy clients one of the things I always do is address the way they speak and think about themselves and their world. Many are quite shocked when they realise how negative they have been about themselves and how harsh. I always say to them that they would never speak to a loved one or friend like that, so why speak to themselves so unkindly
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on March 09, 2012:
Yes I do believe that what we think is what we are. It can be hard to remember to be positive all the time though. The videos help to put me back in a positive mood
Thank you for you comments and Brett for sharing
Brett C from Asia on March 08, 2012:
Belief and positive thinking can achieve what you want. Not so much through magic, but through your drive and the effect of your new attitude on others.
Thanks for SHARING.
