6 Simple Steps to Manifest Your Dream Job

By Katherine Hurst
Updated January 14, 2016

For many people, finding a dream job never goes further than being a dream. However, this does not have to be the case. Often, it is our own fears and doubts that get in the way of our dreams, but by adopting the right attitude, it is possible to break free from these negative feelings.

It doesn’t matter if you are stuck in a job that you hate or are even unemployed, manifesting your dream job is within the reach of anyone. Of course, change is scary, but by focusing on the negatives rather than positives we limit our chances of success. Manifesting your dream job is not simply a case of wanting it badly enough, but by actively working towards achieving your goal.

1. Visualize A Clear Image Of Your Goal

The first step towards landing the job of your dreams is to embrace the power of visualizing. This is simply the technique of forming a clear image in your mind that depicts your end goal. Visualization is something that should be done on a daily basis, preferably in a private area where you know nobody will disturb you. Free yourself from outside distractions, such as your phone, and then focus on relaxing your body. This is done by closing your eyes and slowing as well as deepening your breathing until you feel at peace.

After attaining a state of relaxation, focus on exactly what it is that makes your dream job so desirable, and then picture yourself doing it. Use your imagination to experience what it would be like to already have the job and how enjoyable it is. Allow yourself to feel the excitement of all the new possibilities that are open to you thanks to the job and also what your new work environment looks like. Picture the reaction of your family and friends when you tell them the great news about the job.

At first it can be tricky to clearly visualize your dream job, but it will become easier with practice. This is why you must repeat the process on a daily basis and try to spend at least 15 minutes each time doing so. As you become more proficient at the exercise you will find that you can picture everything in more vivid detail. Visualizing your goals should never feel like a chore, so focus on making it a fun and relaxing activity.

2. Surround Yourself With Positivity

Manifesting your dream job still requires some effort from your part, so make a concerted effort to get out there and network with people. Studies have consistently shown that landing a job more often than not comes down to networking instead of simply sending out resumes. Depending on your personality, networking with people might require you to step out of your comfort zone, but doing so will provide you with great leads and references. Surround yourself with positivity so that when you speak to people they are able to see your confidence and enthusiasm. Don’t just act or pretend that you are positive, but truly think in a positive manner.

3. Overcome Self-Doubt

The surest way to block yourself from manifesting your dream job is to allow negative thoughts and self-doubt to take control. Overcoming these emotions is challenging at first, especially if you are used to telling yourself that success is not something that you truly deserve. Believe in yourself instead of listening to your inner critic so that you don’t become discouraged. Once again, this is a skill that will become easier with practice, so don’t give up if you can’t manage it right away. If your dream job requires any special skills, brush up on these to give yourself a confidence boost and prove that you are ready for what is coming your way.

If you find yourself struggling to stay positive, use a journal that is solely dedicated to boosting your confidence. For example, write down any compliments people have given you about your skills, or describe the times you felt proud about how you performed. Reading through your journal whenever you feel self-doubt will help you to remain focused.

Self-doubt also often creeps in when we start trying to figure out how we will land our dream job instead of simply accepting that it will happen. You have to trust that the universe will provide you with your dream job instead of only focusing on whatever obstacles stand between you and the job. Remember, just because you think that there is only one path to get the dream job you want and it is impossible to follow doesn’t mean the universe can’t come up with alternatives. Stop thinking of roadblocks, and start looking forward to getting the job. Self-doubt is a natural reaction to the unknown because it keeps you from taking risks, but it is something that must be overcome for successful manifestation.

4. Embrace Positive Affirmations

Whether you choose to proclaim your affirmations out loud or put them down in writing, they are powerful aspects of the manifestation process. No matter which method you choose, your affirmations should always serve to complement your end goal, which is manifesting your dream job.

Regularly tell yourself that you deserve the job of your dreams or that every action you take brings you closer and closer to the occupation you have always desired. Daily positive affirmations will also drive out the negative thoughts or destructive self-doubt. Focus on truly believing the positive affirmations, as simply saying them out loud without putting any faith in the words has no benefit.

5. Harness The Power Of Crystals Or Stones

Although crystals and stones are not essential to successfully manifesting your dream job, they can be powerful tools that should not be overlooked. Agate is a good choice as it promotes inner stability and self-confidence. Citrine is another good choice as it helps with forging a positive attitude.

It is also well-known for attracting wealth and prosperity. For some extra help when it comes to networking or attending job interviews don’t forget about the power of septarian, which is also known as dragon stone. This stone provides a confidence boost and also makes it easier to gain the attention of an audience. Since all of these are small enough to keep on your person, you can use them to your advantage all the time.

6. Believe That The Job Is Yours Already

Pin It By believing and thus acting like you have already landed the job of your dreams, you can send out a powerful message to the universe that you are ready. Many people have found that instead of worrying about finding their dream job, if they act as if it is theirs already, it becomes a reality much sooner. It sends out the signal that you are grateful and deserving of the job and not desperate, which is a negative emotion that can drive away success.

Whatever you do, don’t become discouraged or allow self-doubt to creep back into your life. Manifesting your dream job might not happen right away, but by remaining committed to the process, it will happen.
