The Tool of Gratitude

A store across from my office is closing.  The building’s owner wants to rent the space to a tenant who will pay a higher rent.  Rather than simply post a sign announcing a closing sale, the store owners put up a sign that thanked the neighborhood for its support. 

We need to keep this kind of positive thinking in mind as a tool for the job search.  It’s easy to be discouraged while looking for work.  Find different ways to be grateful.  Think about the people who are trying to help you.  Think about what has gone well in your job search.  What if nothing has gone well?  Be thankful that you still have the ability to keep looking for work.

Gratitude empowers us to move forward.  It picks us up when we’re down.  Find some way to let this force be an asset in your job search and your life.
