Tips to find a job #21: How to predict the future and plan for it


Hi, I’m Maria. Job searching can be really
tough, so today we’ve got a tip to get you going. (music) So if you’re lacking a little
bit of motivation and you want to get yourself inspired again, you might want
to consider making a goal board. Some people have used the word of “vision
board” or a “dream board” but let’s just call it a goal board. And simply put, it’s
a piece of cardboard with pictures of the things you want. Now, it might seem
really simple but it’s incredibly powerful when we start to create images
of the thing we want – because it’s about conditioning our brain to focus on the
outcome of what we want. So you can look on the internet, you can look through
magazines and start to collect the images of the job you’d like. It could be
a representation of the job or it could simply represent … Like a palm tree could
represent, “I want to travel and my job is going to get me that.” So look for things
that represent the goal or the job that you want and put them on a piece of
cardboard and notice it. So here are some examples of some goal boards from real
life job seekers. Now what’s interesting, what takes place here, is that our mind
starts to notice this and we begin to pay attention to what’s out there. I’ve
worked with so many people that have actually gained a job simply by creating
this goal board because they’re paying attention to it as opposed to not having
it around to see it. So you can have it somewhere special – and if you don’t want
to use the cardboard, just put some pictures up on your fridge. Put some
ideas around the place of what it is that you want to be doing. This is going
to get you motivated and at a very unconscious level, which is the lazy way
to get motivated. So why not give that a go? Thanks for watching. Head to the jobactive website where you can find out even more information. (music)
