Keep Your Job by Becoming Indispensable
During these hard times, many people are worried about losing their jobs. The way to solve this problem is to become indispensable to your employer or supervisor. (Then they will have to worry about their own survival and they dare not fire you.) This posting shows you how to accomplish this feat.
Why you may need to make changes
If you want to become indispensable to your employer or supervisor, you may have to change some of your attitudes and habits. Many people resist making changes but in these times making needed changes is a survival tool.
You want your employer or supervisor to know that you are willing to make changes that will help the company survive these hard times. You want to become known as a company man or woman.
What changes are needed?
The best way to find out what changes you need to make is to ask your employer or supervisor. Here are some possible questions:
- How can you become more valuable to them?
- Do you need any training to improve your abilities?
- What problems do they have that you can help solve?
- Which of your attitudes and habits do they admire the most?
- Which of your attitudes and habits do they admire the least?
After you have the answers to the above questions, you will know what changes you need to make to become indispensable.
How to make the needed changes
You developed your attitudes and habits over the years. You accepted certain beliefs, the beliefs determined your attitudes, your attitudes guided your actions, and repeated actions became habits. These beliefs, attitudes, and habits all reside in your subconscious mind. In order to change them you need to develop new beliefs. In order to accelerate this normal process these new beliefs should be empowering beliefs.
These empowering beliefs will override your existing beliefs, attitudes, and habits. They will change your attitudes and guide your actions. Eventually you will develop new habits. However, since these empowering beliefs will now guide your actions, the old habits will be ignored.
You can implant new beliefs into your subconscious mind using visualizations. A visualization is a guided daydream. You decide what is to happen and then you see it played out inside your mind. As this daydream unfolds, allow yourself to feel the excitement and pleasure of your new capability. The repetition of this visualization, along with your intense feelings, helps condition your subconscious mind to accept this new reality.
You first need to create a scene to use for the visualization. This scene should show you using your new capability to attain some desirable achievement. The more details and intense feelings you can think of the better. You probably should write the scene down on a piece of paper so you can study and remember it.
Example scene showing you as assertive:
You are discussing a business problem with your co-workers. There is one person who always tries to hog the conversation and impose his opinions on everyone else. As he drones on incessantly, you interrupt him to calmly express your own opinions. He disagrees with you, but you back up your assertions with indisputable facts. He slowly gives in. Most of your co-workers smile at you to show their appreciation.
Doing the visualization:
Close your eyes and go into the visualization.See the actions, feel the emotions. Let yourself laugh or smile if appropriate.
Continue with this visualization for several minutes.
Repeat this visualization three times a day for two weeks. Then use it once a day until the idea of having this new capability feels normal.
You can change your attitude about life by implanting empowering beliefs using visualizations. Try it. You might like the results.
