The Power of Beliefs in Shaping Your Career Success

Beliefs play a significant role in shaping our lives, influencing our decisions, and defining our character. Our beliefs, whether positive or negative, shape our perspectives, influence our behaviors, and determine our outcomes. The way we think and the beliefs we hold about ourselves, others, and the world around us can have a profound impact on our lives. This is especially true when it comes to our beliefs around work.

If you believe that finding work online is super competitive and challenging, then you are likely to approach your job search with a negative mindset, making it even harder to secure a job. It’s important to acknowledge that while the online job market can be competitive, it’s not the only option. Approximately 85% of jobs are found offline, which means that there are plenty of opportunities available if you are willing to expand your search.

Similarly, if you believe that it’s hard to secure a graduate program in the company you want to work for, then you may feel discouraged and give up on your goal altogether. While it’s true that there may not be many graduate programs available, it’s important to aim for them and be persistent in your efforts. There are so many great companies out there, including GHD, AECOM, and AURECON, that may offer excellent opportunities in your field of interest.

One common belief that many job seekers hold is that they don’t have any local experience, and their overseas experience does not count. However, this belief may be holding you back from pursuing the opportunities available to you. It’s essential to recognize that overseas experience can be valuable when networking and can demonstrate your ability to adapt to new environments and cultures. While it may not be directly relevant to the role you are applying for, it can still be a valuable asset.

Another limiting belief that many job seekers hold is that their English is not good enough. This belief may stem from a lack of confidence or past experiences of being judged or criticized for their language skills. However, it’s important to recognize that language skills can be developed and improved over time, and many employers value bilingual or multilingual employees. Instead of focusing on your perceived weaknesses, focus on building your language skills and leveraging them as a strength.

Some job seekers may also believe that they need to have completed an internship to be competitive in the job market. While internships can be an excellent way to gain experience and develop skills, they are not the only way. It’s important to remember that you have a choice in how you gain experience and develop your skills. Working in a related field or volunteering can also be great options.

Finally, it’s important to recognize that the beliefs we hold about ourselves and our abilities can have a significant impact on our daily mood and confidence. If you believe that you are not capable of achieving your goals or that you are not good enough, then it’s likely that you will feel discouraged and unmotivated. On the other hand, if you believe in yourself and your abilities, then you are more likely to approach challenges with a positive mindset and be more resilient in the face of setbacks.

In conclusion, our beliefs around work can have a profound impact on our lives and our ability to achieve our goals. It’s essential to recognize and challenge limiting beliefs that may be holding us back from pursuing the opportunities available to us. By adopting a growth mindset and focusing on our strengths and abilities, we can increase our confidence, motivation, and ultimately, our chances of success. Remember, you get what you believe, so choose your beliefs wisely.
