Start a New Career

By Debra Lea Thorsen

After coaching hundreds of people on how to break free from the

corporate world, I have created 7 fundamental practices to help you

successfully start a new career. I share them with you here.

1. Center Yourself

When you are trying to start a new career, you may encounter inner

resistance and self-doubt. Before self-talk sabotages your dreams, learn

to disconnect from your negative thought patterns. I recommend centering

throughout the day to help you be a kind and patient observer of your

thoughts. Learning to center will help you to stay positive and relaxed.

Meditation, walks at lunchtime, yoga, and focused breathing can help you

to stay centered throughout the day.

2. Focus on the Positive

Television broadcasters, newspapers, and magazines make their money

on advertising. They sell advertising by focusing on the negative and

what is not working in the world. Turn off your TV. Stop reading

newspapers and news magazines. Surround yourself with positive people.

Read autobiographies of people you admire and who have overcome

adversity. If you pay attention to negative thoughts and events, you

will attract negativity into your life. Stay focused on the positive.

3. Live from purpose and commitment

Do you have a personal mission statement? What is your purpose in

life? Does your work forward that purpose? Spend some moments on

reflection and create inspiring and exciting purpose and mission

statements for yourself. If you need help with this, visit to subscribe to a free ezine, get a home study

guide, or join a Fearless Action Group.

4. Perform essential actions that are on-purpose

If you are living from purpose and commitment, then it is much easier

to stay focused on essential actions that will further your purpose and

to eliminate actions that don't help you to achieve your purpose.

5. Have the courage to live your truth

Many people waste time avoiding negative consequences instead of

pursuing possibilities. Pursuing possibilities takes courage. Our

definition of courage is staying true to your values no matter who

disagrees. It also means being open to the world, not closed in a loop

of habitual thinking and behavior.

6. Jealously Guard your Energy

Evaluate all of the relationships and activities in your life based

upon whether they give you energy or take your energy. Eliminate

activities that take your energy. Eliminate negative people. Try to

shift relationships that take your energy or limit your exposure to

these people. To start a new career takes lots of energy. Jealously

guard your energy during this critical time and eliminate all energy


7. Be grateful

I believe that we have all chosen to be here in this physical world.

Our non-physical being chose to manifest here and now. And every day

that you walk on this earth is a miracle. Count your blessings. If you

find yourself in despair or unable to get out of a funk, start keeping a

gratitude journal. Every evening before you go to sleep, spend some time

counting your blessings. What are you grateful for in your life? You can

do this as a mental exercise or you can start keeping a gratitude

journal. Every day, write down five things that you are grateful for.

You might be surprised by how abundant your life really is.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
