Business Success, Honouring Louise Hay
With the recent passing of Louise Hay, I thought it was apt to share one of her blog posts, in honour of her and her beautiful words that inspired millions around the globe to be more, do more and think positively.
This post about job success, I read with my business in mind. Combining spirituality with my business is paramount for me, because my spirituality is part of who I am. Affirmations, meditation, aligning myself- it’s all part of me and Louise Hay played a huge role in my life.
Finding success in a career is a major problem for many people. However, you can always have a successful job if you simply change the way you think about work. You’ll never find work a pleasure if you hate your job or you can’t stand your boss. What a terrible affirmation that is. It will be impossible for you to attract a great job with that belief system. If you want to enjoy your time at work, then you must change your thinking. I’m a great believer in blessing every person, place and thing in the workplace with love. Begin with your current job: Affirm that it is merely a stepping-stone to far greater positions.
You’re in your current job because of things you believed in the past. You drew it to you by your thinking. Perhaps you learned your attitude toward work from your parents. No matter you can change your thinking now. So bless with love your boss, your co-workers, the location, the building, the elevators or stairs, the offices, the furniture and each and every customer. This creates a loving mental atmosphere within you and the entire environment will respond to it.
I’ve never understood the reasoning behind belittling or berating others at work. If you’re an owner, a manager or a supervisor, how can you possibly expect to get the best work from others if they’re frightened or resentful? We all want to be appreciated, acknowledged and encouraged. If you support your employees and give them respect, then in return they’ll give you the best work they can.
Please don’t believe that it’s hard to get a job. That may be true for many, but it doesn’t have to be true for you. You only need one job and your consciousness will then open the pathway for you. Don’t have faith in fear. When you hear of negative trends in business or in the economy, immediately affirm: “It may be true for some, but it is not true for me. I always prosper no matter where I am or what is going on.”
People often ask me for affirmations to make their relationships at work smoother. In fact, for many people this is a really big issue in their lives. I’m deeply aware that whatever I give out comes back to me multiplied. This is true everywhere, including at work. In the workplace, it’s important to know that every employee (and employer) has been attracted by the action of love, for it’s his or her Divine right place here at this very moment. Divine harmony permeates us all and we can flow together in the workplace in a most productive and joyous way.
There aren’t any problems that don’t have solutions. There aren’t any questions without answers. Choose to go beyond the problem to seek the Divine solution to any type of discord that seems to appear. Be willing to learn from any strife or confusion as it comes up. It’s important to release all blame and turn within to seek the truth. Be willing to release whatever pattern may be in your consciousness that has contributed to the situation.
You know that you’re successful in all that you do. You’re inspired and productive. You serve others willingly and gladly. Divine harmony reigns supreme within and around you, within and around each and every person in your workplace.
If you like your job, but feel that you’re not getting paid enough, then bless your current salary with love. Expressing gratitude for what you have now enables your income to grow. Please, absolutely no more complaining about the job or your co-workers. Your consciousness put you where you are now. Your changing consciousness can lift to you a better position. You can do it!
During your workday, there a number of things you can do to release tension. Here are a few of my suggestions:
1. Before you go to work every day, do this simple exercise: Just sit comfortably and concentrate on your breath. Whenever you notice thoughts coming in, gently bring your awareness back to your breath. Give yourself at least 10 or 15 minutes to dwell in the silence each day. There’s nothing difficult or tricky to this.
2. Write or type this affirmation and put it where you can see it at work every day:
“My job is a peaceful haven. I bless my job with love. I put love in every corner and my job lovingly responds with warmth and comfort. I am at peace.”
When you start to think about your boss, say this affirmation to yourself:
“I only give out that which I wish to receive. My love and acceptance of others is mirrored to me in every way.”
Refuse to be limited in any way by human-mind thinking. Your life can be filled with love and joy because your work is a Divine idea. Remember to say to yourself every day before going to work:
“No matter where I am, there is only infinite good, infinite wisdom, infinite harmony and infinite love.”
MY JOY ALLOWS ME TO EXPRESS MY TALENTS AND ABILITIES, I AM GRATEFUL FOR THIS EMPLOYMENT.
THE JOY I FIND IN MY CAREER IS REFLECTED IN MY OVERALL HAPPINESS.
MAKING DECISIONS IS EASY FOR ME. I WELCOME NEW IDEAS AND I FOLLOW THROUGH WITH WHAT I SAY.
AT MY JOB, MY CO-WORKERS AND I ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER’S GROWTH AND SUCCESS.
WHEN I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, I PLAN FOR A GOOD DAY. MY ANTICIPATION ATTRACTS POSITIVE EXPERIENCES TO ME.
THE PERFECT JOB IS LOOKING FOR ME, WE ARE BEING BROUGHT TOGETHER NOW.
I TRULY BELIEVE THAT WE ARE HERE TO BLESS AND PROSPER EACH OTHER. I REFLECT THIS BELIEF IN MY DAILY INTERACTIONS.
I CHOOSE HEALTHY STIMULATION. DURING BREAKS AT WORK, I SPEAK POSITIVELY WITH OTHERS AND LISTEN WITH COMPASSION.
I AM AT EASE SPEAKING IN FRONT OF OTHERS. I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN MYSELF.
WHEN I ENCOUNTER PROBLEMS ON THE JOB, I AM WILLING TO ASK FOR HELP.
I CREATE A GOOD FEELING AT WORK. I REALIZE THAT THERE ARE LAWS THAT GOVERN THE UNIVERSE AND I WORK WITH THESE LAWS IN EVERY AREA OF MY LIFE.
I KNOW THAT WHEN I DO MY BEST AT MY JOB, I AM REWARDED IN ALL SORTS OF WAYS.
