How to Stay Happy After Loosing Your Job

Say I'm So Happy and Grateful

The first thing to do is admit it out loud. Say, "I'm fired!" Let that be the last time you feel sorry for yourself and at all inconvenienced by your circumstances. Shame is no longer allowed because I control my emotions. Instead, choose some affirmations to immediately help shift your life to greatness.

I choose a better feeling.

I'm proud of myself for being strong.

I'm smart!

I'm a survivor.

I am great!

My personal favorite is...

I am so happy and grateful that money comes to me in increasing quantities, through multiple sources on a continuous basis.

This affirmation always gets me motivated and back in control and ready to bring all that is desirable back into my life. In fact, it never left. What I'm really doing is reminding myself how great my life already is and what I have to look forward to. Being positive may not be something you are accustomed to actively doing, but it gets easier with every positive thing you do or say. It can feel forced at first when you are still in your feelings about your current circumstances. An important thing to remember during those times is that you are in control of your own emotions. Yes, you are in control! Each time you feel sorry for yourself you allow that emotion. You give yourself permission to feel bad, have a headache, center feelings around frustration and say mean things to your family. It all begins and ends with you when you decide. That sounds a lot like control right?

Choose and make your first statements of positivity that will slowly or quickly change the direction of your energy. Directing your energy to more positive things will bring back things you like to see around you. Try not to think about things you believe are out of your control. That is just your bruised ego feeling bad and not wanting to believe your life and surroundings are your own doing. Don't stay and focus there! Do and say positive things that can lighten up the day. Say something nice to a stranger even though you feel rotten inside for what just happen to you. I guarantee it will surprise you how fast moods and outcomes change for you.

Wake UP! It's going to be a good day.
Wake UP! It's going to be a good day.

How to Stay Positive with Affirmations

Yes! Get out of bed. Get an extra hour of sleep you deserve it but don't stay there. Get up because improving your life is your new job. It's not the time to think about what could have been but time to clean up, because now you have the time. Freshen up everything around you and make it smell sweet like victory.

As you clean those windows say affirmations like, "I see clearly now!"

Empty those trash cans and say, "Everything that was holding me back is gone!"

With a fresh mind and positive attitude, I can do anything. What I do now has a purpose. I am committed to my happiness now and now everything will be better.

With every sweep out goes the old feelings of unworthiness and back in comes wealth and prosperity for me.

How to Interview Jobs

Each time you search for a job you are recruiting the best candidate for your life. You are interviewing your next 40 hours a week so this should be the most important job you do next. Sometimes, we spend more time at our jobs than with our own families.

Remember this could be a time to change that. Whatever it is you want should be written down in front of you. Write down requirements for your next job. If you don't, how will you know if this job is right for you? You are then allowing them to dictate your life and tell you what your life will be like. In every interview, think of it as you are interviewing them to see if they fit into your vision of life as you are the one planning to live it.

If you don't know what you want, this is a good time for reflection and some social interaction. Talking with friends and family can help you figure out where your life is now and where you want it to go. How do your friends and family fit into your working life, your vacations, and even your health? Are these healthy relationships? Are these friends serving your highest good?

How to Create Your Life with Intention

Get rid of the bad weeds in your life. People and relationships that cost you money you don't want to spend. Relationships and activities that cost you valuable time you would rather spend elsewhere. It's time to take an inventory of your feelings and your relationships and strike through those that need weeding out! See if that doesn't give you some perspective on a new life. It can be awesome. Why shouldn't it be?

We rarely do these important feelings checks to see if our lives are going as well as we would like. Starting today though we can create vision boards and put down in a physical form for us to look at daily clear reminders of what we want. The how isn't as important now. I promise if you want it enough your life will reflect most things you desired and felt enough to put down on paper. So go ahead grab that big poster and design your life.

Affirm that your life is great! Get out of bed and get ready to interview your new life! Sweep out the old and tired and bless your future with positive affirmations and vision boards for a new day.

      You are welcome. I found it helps to create a tablet with just the affirmations you like. I feel like once they are written they continue on even when you are no longer saying them or reading them. Date the pages. I noticed my affirmations changed over time based on my life circumstances.

      Thank you Maurice! I appreciate that and love those affirmations. "I have the power to change my story" is one I will definitely start saying to myself!

      Oh wow! I love success stories! I'm so happy for you. I'll pray for you to keep moving and be able to see the positive opportunities. Sometimes we ignore the signs of discord in a job or situation for the financial gain and stability it gives us instead of following what is going to serve us better or lead us to something greater.

      One affirmation I love is, "I have the power to change my story." and I would also add, "I am who I want to be."

      May your guides continue to get through and show you signs you are on your right path. Many blessing and light to you AmyMarie_5

      Thanks for sharing.

      This is a great article and I really needed to read this. I left a job that I loved but became hostile. The job I took lasted two weeks and I was fired without even being given a fair chance. I have been using affirmations every morning to keep myself motivated and not fall into a depression over having everything fall apart in only a few months. I just recently accepted a job offer (making way less than what I was making) but I was impressed during the interview and my gut tells me I will be happy.

      I believe that affirmations work. I still have my moments where I get sad over everything that happened and I allow myself to be sad each day for a few minutes and then move on. I also have a vision board that I started working on when I became unemployed. I think my attitude and my determination to move on is getting me through this period. Like you said, it also helps to stay away from people who drain you mentally and financially.

      you're right about the affirmation aspects and staying focused.

      sometimes though developing tunnel vision and managing to stay focused help. Just move forward towards your next goal.

      Interesting article....sometimes things are easier to say (or listen to) than to put into practice, but you keep it inspirational.

      Yes, the affirmation path isn't as easy as some make it seem. It's discipline of the mind which is not too different from meditation. Adding a new way of thinking isn't easy for people set in their ways.

      Yes, a positive article! We need much more! The affirmation Path is actually not new, but I do not know how many get around to this. My experience is that the weight of too many thoughts; too many distractions can get in the way. Keep writing Maurice.

      @Alexis

      I appreciate your kind words. It is very human and happens to many who hold those feeling of shame inside.

      I liked this article a lot because you take the realistic and non-cliche approach. Granted I've never been fired, I do know individuals who have been and each and every one of them are now employed in better jobs and quite happy! It's understandable and very human to feel sorry for yourself...but you really have to cast that aside, otherwise interviewers will pick up on that in a heartbeat!
