Being unexpectedly without work and income is not a pleasant thing. After all, our jobs and the income they provide make it possible to pay the mortgage, utilities, food and all the other expenses that make life better. No matter how bad things are, you must get the correct attitude, the right mental attitude. The reason you must get and keep the correct and right mental attitude because it determines the outcome you will experience. If you analyze the results that a bad attitude brings, you will find a bad attitude produces:
  • Bad company
  • Misery
  • Sadness
  • Lack of opportunity
When you are a sad, depressed, angry or fearful person, you are bad company to be around. Those characteristics make you a miserable person.  It is important that you get the correct or right mental attitude while you are out of work. The correct or right mental attitude will help you to get a job and to be happier while you are out of work.  When a person has a correct or right mental attitude, she is:
  • Resolute
  • Hopeful
  • Adventurous
  • Determined
These characteristics are what give you the strength to keep going through the work needed to handle life while you look for work. When out of work it is important to behave as though you will find a job before things are totally ruined for your family. Have a sense of adventure because sometimes good things are things outside our comfort zones. Additionally, determination helps us to hang on when things are bad and to believe things will get better. These characteristics will get us good results and help us move from joblessness to full and satisfying employment.
The reason we need to develop characteristics that create a correct or right mental attitude while out of work is because when we sow a correct or right mental attitude we reap:
  • A good reputation
  • People who want to help
  • Positive results
  • Less stress
There is an idea commonly circulated now called The Law of Attraction. The idea is that the attitude you give the world is the attitude the world will give back to you. There may be some truth in this idea. After all, while misery loves company, no one wants to be that company!
