Why the F-Word Could Be Good for Your Job Search

faith  word in wood typeThis is your Monday Morning Rx!

…and, yes, it is possible that the F-Word could be good for your job search. However, it is not the F-Word you were thinking about. This F-Word is called FAITH!

Before you believe I am going off on some religious tangent, let me explain that one doesn’t have to be religious to have faith. Faith is about one’s belief system.

Do you believe in YOU? Do you have faith in your capabilities? Have you been so knocked down by your current job situation that you have lost faith in YOU? It’s time to realign your thinking. Here are three facts about Faith:

  • Faith is progressive. It keeps you moving forward. When you are about to give up on your job search it reminds you to keep going.
  • Faith doesn’t linger long at the pity party being sorry for itself. According to Jentezen Franklin, “Faith never gets into a bad situation and says, “I’m just going to sit here and die. It’s over. Faith never stands in the desert, having a pity party with everything drying up around it.” Faith brushes itself off and tries one more time.
  • Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.). Sometimes you just have to trust the process; trust that you are doing and saying the right thing, even when you can’t see it.

Here’s your challenge for this week. Forget the other F-Word, and hold on to your Faith. Begin, one more time, to have faith in yourself and your capabilities. Tell yourself that there is a job out there with your name on it, and you are going to do whatever it takes to find that job. That’s called FAITH!

Happy job hunting!

  1. Thanks Daisy for this because the search gets so lonely and hopeless at times but I have decided to be unstoppable in this job search. I know that if I do nothing then nothing happens but if I just keep taking that first step then my level of expectation also rises. This piece has definitely encouraged me on this Monday morning.

    Hi Daisy

    Your blogs have been a tremendous boost to me. When I feel like giving up, I push even harder. Harder is becoming tired of the routine day after day, week after week and months after months. This job search is a JOB! in itself. Trying even while I write.

    Have a good day.
