Are you dreaming of that perfect job that you would actually enjoy and that pays well? Or do you wish you had the courage to apply for a new job? Either way, what you need is a few good career affirmations!

Work life can be extremely demanding and it’s easy to lose confidence when you don’t get a job you applied for. But you must not let negative and self-sabotaging thoughts win. You have what it takes. You’ve got this.

Now go through this list of affirmations and get ready for all the amazing career opportunities that are waiting for you!

Why you need career affirmations

If you are after your dream job, I’m sure you have already considered what skills you will need and what kind of experience they want you to have. It’s important to keep learning new skills if you are in a highly competitive field. And it never hurts to do some extra work or get something additional to put in your resume.

But other than your skills and experience, it’s also important to have a positive, optimistic mindset. If you don’t you’re not going to bother applying to jobs you might get. And you are less likely to ask for a raise or a promotion. That’s why career affirmations are so helpful; they help you push yourself forward, believe in yourself and stay positive even when you don’t feel like going to work.

How to use affirmations to get your dream job

Using affirmations is easy. That’s why they are such a great tool in building the right mindset. These kinds of positive statements can make you feel better in a matter of seconds and that’s exactly what you need when you feel like you don’t have what it takes or that you’ll never get your dream job.

Choose an affirmation or a few and make them a part of your morning routine. You can write them on sticky notes and stick them on your bathroom mirror or take a few minutes every morning to write them down in your journal.

Make sure to use affirmations every morning to get the most out of them.

Use these career affirmations to build a positive mindset when you go to work and to motivate yourself to get a new job if that is your goal. Even if it feels like there is a lot of competition in your field and it’s really hard to get any decent job, it doesn’t mean that you couldn’t still get the job of your dreams. Someone is going to get that job, so why not you?

What you need to do, is to be optimistic and put in the work and eventually those jobs that you thought were out of your reach suddenly become opportunities that you have a realistic chance of getting.

Remember that no one is perfect and you don’t have to know everything or have all the experience that a job ad says you should have. Women often decide it’s best not to waste their time applying for a job when they don’t fill all the requirements.

But you have every right to apply for every job you yourself think you can do. And you absolutely should. It’s good to keep in mind that the other applicants aren’t perfect either.

What job are you going to apply to next? And what is your dream job? I’d love to know!
