When I first decided to start saying affirmations, one of the first I tried had to do with work.
Work is my passion. I love what I do (I’m a freelance writer) and want nothing more than to keep sustaining myself (maybe, more than sustaining? Dare I say, thriving?) in this way. Since I had just given birth in November, though, and had only worked sporadically since then, I really wanted things to pick up. So, I made some phone calls, wrote some emails and did all the usual things, without getting much response.
Then I tried it: My affirmation.
It was this: “I have steady freelance writing work.”
Here is what happened next: The following day I received an email from a client that I hadn’t heard from in a while (my best paying client, no less). Then, later that same day, I landed an interview that resulted in a one-time paying job and a job offer (which I later refused due to other work opportunities).
And the story gets even better. I got more work from my best client. I got several jobs from my agent. And I’m happy to tell you that the past several months have been the most productive and financially lucrative of my career.
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
