How I Manifested My Dream Job Environment
I had been unemployed for over a year because I could not find any jobs that I liked.
One day I decided that instead of creating an ideal job position, I would focus on the ideal job environment. I made a list of the aspects I wanted including:
1) Working on a body of water.
2) Close to home.
3) Having a nice boss.
4) Working alone
5) And serving coffee.
I live in a very small town and we aren’t on any bodies of water. My dad told my mom that there was no way that I was going to have my job because of the fact that there were no bodies of water close to home.
About a couple of weeks after I started visualizing this and feeling like I was already in that environment, I decided to cruise around the countryside. I drove aimlessly while reminding myself that I had to start applying for jobs. But, I just didn’t even know what to do because I couldn’t think of one place that I wanted to work.
As I was cruising around, something told me to pull in to a park. I didn’t know why I was doing that. I figured it was just because it would be a pretty drive. I went into their lodge and asked if they were hiring for their front desk. The girl at the front desk replied “No, but we are getting ready to hire people for the coffee kiosk. it hasn’t even opened yet. The general manager just told us yesterday that he was going to start hiring people”.
She couldn’t even believe it that I was showing up just a day after he announced his plans to hire someone for it. “How did you know that?” When I told her that I didn’t even know that they had a coffee shop, she was just amazed.
I got hired a few days later.
Oh by the way, this kiosk just happens to be facing a man-made lake! I work alone and I have the sweetest, most easy-going boss!
That, my friends, is the definition of “Out of no way, a way will be made”.
