Sarah's Not So Secret Secrets: Stipes Quattuor – Don't Worry; Be Happy.

Ah! My first late post!

Last week was insane. So much to do, and school just started! I am sorry for not posting last week for anyone who reads this on a regular basis – ha.

Anyway, two weeks ago, I wrote about finding out what you are good at and setting goals. I also left you a teaser for this week: how to perceive and pursue a job search. I noted that this subject will probably expand upon multiple posts.

This week we are talking about how to perceive the job search. The first two words that come to mind when I think of the job search is, “Oh sh*t!” Then I think, “I have to grow up!” Neither of these are great, positive thoughts. Then, after hyperventilating and a mini-panic attack, I step back and really examine the situation.

I am not actually scared of the job search; I am scared of the unknown. I don’t know where I am going to be, what I am going to be doing, who I am going to know, etc. etc.. There are countless things that are going to happen in 2014, and I do not have a clue what those things are! That’s terrifying. Even just typing this I am starting to get that panic feeling.

In Miller’s book, he talks about listening to positive programing. Whether that is music, television, stories, movies, speeches, TED talks or whatever else makes you happy when you listen – listen to it.

I personally feel uplifted when I watch comedies, or when I listen to Frank Sinatra. When you are getting that, “Oh sh*t,” moment, and start stressing, stop and listen. Everyday, listen to the things that make you feel uplifted. Maybe reading or meditating help you feel uplifted? Do it!

All of these positive endorphins will bring you to such a state of euphoria that you will be ready to CONQUER the job search. Well, maybe not conquer it just yet, but at least be ready to make a few tackles.

Next week we’ll take a leap. For now..

Don’t worry, be happy.
