Currently millions of people are unemployed and looking for a new job is a tedious struggle. However, rather than viewing the time as a black hole in their lives, individuals may do better to look at it as an opportunity to pursue personal growth.
Looking for a job is not expected to get easier any time soon. The National Association for Business Economics recently released a new report that predicts continued high employment throughout the remainder of this year, according to Market Watch.
While the traditional image of an unemployed person is of someone who watches a lot of daytime TV and rarely leaves the house, this doesn’t have to be the case. Aside from the time spent looking for a new job, the unemployed may use their time to do many of the things that they never had time to before.
This could include everything from taking some classes at the local community college to learning how to meditate. During this journey of personal growth, it is important reflect on positive experiences and use them to make changes in negative thought patterns.
While no one would wish to be without a job, it is important to look on the bright side of things. Ilchi Lee says that personal growth is important, and free time can help individuals accomplish this.
