So here comes a question as “What is the law of attraction?” . The law of attraction states that it is our mental capacity to attract negative or positive thoughts. It works on a principle that “energy attracts like energy”. Thus if we think negative, negative things will happen to us, and likewise for positive things. The positive or negative thoughts are materialized in reality.
We knowingly and unknowingly have several thoughts in our mind; they are either positive or negative. Every moment, we act as a human magnet, sending our thoughts and emotions and attract the same that we think off. Hence when we think negative we are attracting unwanted situations to life. Applying the law of attraction to one’s life will bring about too many positive changes.

Job Hunting with Law of Attraction:
Positive thinking acts as a catalyst to get the job you always dreamt of. The courage and confidence brings the results in your favor. Here are few ways which you can follow
1. Decide on things you want:
You should be clear of your goals and your aim. Sit and write on paper the things you want. List out your interests and preferences and research the best job available for you. Suppose you are a human resource degree holder, there are many fields in HR where you can work. For example- if you like to communicate and networking- recruitment will be the best choice for you. If you are more inclined towards laws and policies, personnel manager will be a wise choice to make. Other preferences like working hours, span of control, Company culture are also to be thought upon. These things also affect the career decision a lot. Consider all the factors, research on the companies that can provide you the opportunity, so that you can target them.
2. Think positively:
Replacing negative thoughts with positive ones, help gaining positive result. The main point of law of attraction revolves around thinking positively. Achieving what you want rehires to think positive and remove all the negative thoughts you have. Do not be afraid of failure. Do not have self doubts or fears. In short, remove all the negative energy that surrounds you and fill yourself with positive thoughts. Have courage and self confidence. When you value yourself, then only others will. The person who thinks poorly of himself will definitely not be good in the eyes of others.
3. Believe in yourself:
Success comes to those who belief that they can achieve their goal, irrespective of the available resources, opportunities or intelligence. Yes you read it right, it also overcome intelligence.
At times, failure of pasts and bad memories haunts us and takes up large mental space, which is nothing but a vast source of negative energy. Every bad experience is a lesson in itself. Having self doubt and being self loathing because of past mistakes is a harmful thing to do to you. Leave past the bad memories and move ahead with vigor and with confidence. Also surround yourself with positive people. The people who bring you down and de motivates. You are the people from whom you strictly should stay away from. No outside power should be able to crumble your high spirits. Believe in yourself and ignore the negative people around you.
4. Align your thoughts and actions:
The next step post thinking positive and deciding your goal is to think upon the necessary actions to be taken to achieve it. For example let us consider an architect, he thinks of a plan and visualizes how that building should be, but later he puts his thoughts on paper and actually sees how the structure can be built. He makes a blueprint of his plan which acts as a guideline while construction happens. On the similar lines, we need to make guideline for our self if we want to succeed. Considering successful job search, the guidelines would involve the steps like- researching about the companies and suitable opportunities, networking with the people from the industry, preparing for the interview, getting the interview call and so on.
Unless the actions are aligned with the thoughts you had in mind, success will not be possible. Positive thoughts alone are not helpful, but taking initiative and actions along with positivity will help a lot.
5. Do not be discouraged:
What if I do not speak well in interview? Why will such company call a person like me for interview? Did I give the interview well? I think I made many mistakes in interview. I think I do not have deserve the job. What if I get the job and then realize am incompetent to do so?
These are the negative thoughts which we keep on harboring and losing our chance to succeed. We may not realize but we become our greatest critic, and discourage our self to a level that we doubt our capabilities.
There are bound to be few setbacks, world isn’t perfect. But that should not discourage you. It is a part and parcel of life. Have self belief and leave no place of negative thoughts. Even if any negative thoughts come to your mind, your confidence should be able to shoot him away instantly.
6. Expect the best:
Even if you plan your thoughts and actions well, a little thought of failure can crumble the success rate to minimum. Expect the best outcome of the things you attempt. Be it an interview, expecting high salary or a desired role. Expect that you will get what you desire. This evokes a confidence and charm which is bound to get noticed and have a positive impact on others.
7. Pay attention to how you feel:
Law of attraction is purely psychological thing, the positivity we may have is our mental capacity, but we cannot always force our self to be positive. Hence evaluate your feelings. Create opportunities which will make you happy and joyous, be grateful for the small success steps you achieve like networking with the employees of the company and getting to know the company better, being able to perform well in practice session or mock interview you have on your own. If you got an interview call then be grateful as if you already got the job.
8. Be committed:
Have wholehearted efforts in your job search; you must be consistent in the efforts you take. Being persistent and dedicated will bring in favorable efforts. One must be well prepared for the interview, Research and try to find the possible interview question. Visualize the best replies for the same. A detailed planning and efforts will not go in vain ever.

Acting as you already got the job will let you know how you will be behaving on the job. It gives you a sense of reality. Imagine yourself in the position that you desire and visualize yourselves doing the daily tasks and performing the set of responsibilities that will be given to you. You can even imagine various difficult scenarios you may come across in job and how you will handle it. You will realize the level of communication, maturity and skill required for the job.

12. Focus on outcome:
The focus of a person is necessary to be in a proper place. Focus on the things you can change rather than brooding over the things you hardly have control on. Focus your energy on getting your dream job. Expect positive outcome and the fact that you deserve to have good things happening in your life.
Underestimating yourself is the worst thing one can do. Never say you cannot do it or you do not deserve it. A ‘can do’ attitude or ‘never say die’ attitude is something most employers are looking forward for. Employers do not see the people they hire doing menial jobs. Employers see future leaders and motivators in you. And remember a self doubting person can never lead.
