    Using the Law of Attraction to Stop Hating Your Job

    Affirmations for when you hate your job can ease stress and bring positive change into your life.

    Before we get into how to feel better and use the law of attraction to stop hating your job, ask yourself this:

    •  Is it the job you hate or the work itself? 
    • Do you still love what you do, you just don’t dig the surroundings? 
    • Or do you find yourself in a habit of hating your jobs after the new wears off?
    • What would it take for you to make a change? To know that you would be happy. 

    Here’s a truth: You can be happy right now. 

    Here’s another truth: Loving your job means loving yourself.

    Here’s another way to put it: Loving your job comes from you, not your boss, your friends or even this website. 

    Your job is a reflection of how you value yourself and what you think you deserve. Loving your job starts with choosing to be happy despite today’s sucky job. It’s a simple, yet not-so-simple shift that takes time to master. But you can change. But when you change your mindset you will change your life. 

    Law of Attraction Basics

    The law of attraction is simply what you think about creates your reality. You attract what you believe. Think happy thoughts and miracles will happen. 

    “Whatever you’re thinking about is literally like planning a future event. When you’re worrying, you are planning. When you’re appreciating you are planning …What are you planning?” This quote from law of attraction pioneer Abraham Hicks is a reminder that every thought creates the future. 

    If you are fixated on thoughts of how lazy your boss is or how bureaucratic the company is you feel frustrated. The frustration is attracting more frustration.

    You’re frustrated with your family because they don’t get that you are being tortured to provide for them. You can’t seem to catch a break. The dog keeps running away, you lost your keys. Frustration leads to more frustration. 

    Start Small and Feel the Happy

    Affirmations for when you hate your job can ease stress and bring positive change into your life.

    Instead of grousing about the incompetent buffoons in management or allowing anger to take over, start thinking positive. There has got to be one or two things about the job that you like. 

    Start with small things. Maybe the coffee is good or being at the office gives you a break from the kids. Start there. Challenge yourself to come up with five things that you appreciate – it’s really hard to get fired, the breakroom vending machine has an amazing selection. 

    Feel the appreciation. Be thankful and happy. The universe is listening. Abraham Hicks says:

    “When you reach for the thought that feels better, the universe is now responding differently to you because of that effort. And so, the things that follow you get better and better, too. So it gets easier to reach for the thought that feels better, because you are on ever-increasing, improving platforms that feel better.”

    Try it. What have you got to lose?

    Affirmations are like Red Bulls for creating positivity. They give you more oomph and tons of good energy. Here are 40 affirmations for when you hate your job.
