Seize those things that are under your control...! Even the little things...haircut? Sure! Healthier food choices, you betcha! Working out? Go for it!

Yes, you ARE in a tough spot...there's no denying it...but things become more manageable when we take control of SOMETHING in our environment.

Baby steps lead to giant accomplishments!

You CAN DO IT! :-)

My major hurdle is knowing that I am 54 years old with no educational backup, lots of experience, in a position where they are now requiring educational backup. I'm weighing in at 235 lbs, at 54 years old, been unemployed since January of 2009 and don't have a pot to piss in when it comes to clothing or getting over the anger. Whats worse is I'm sitting here in tears wondering if a haircut will help and if not, then what else can help. Talk about a total depression zone.

Never say never because never is a long long time!

What hurdles are YOU facing...? Can you relate to any of these? ...Don

----------

What a lot of career advice doesn’t address are the psychological aspects of looking for a job. You get all kinds of tips for writing the best resume, crafting the perfect cover letter, and networking with other professionals. But even with the best practical advice out there, looking for a job is tremendously taxing psychologically.

That’s why I thought a book, Winning Job Interviews, written by Dr. Paul Powers was interesting. Powers, a “management psychologist” writes and conducts seminars to help people find and keep jobs they love. For this blog, Dr. Powers shares an excerpt from his book. The topic is The Deadly Dozen: Roadblocks of Job Hunting:

From more than 20 years of working in different areas of the career field, I have identified a dozen major psychological roadblocks that can sidetrack, confuse, and discourage even the most dedicated job hunter. They are among the strongest reasons that many people stay in dead-end jobs or try to avoid the job-hunting process at all costs — to the detriment of their careers and the overall quality of their lives.
