Occupy Your Career

English: Occupy Washington, D.C. at McPherson ...

The gypsy lady has not hitched up the wagon because it is not time to move on but to take control. Power ceded to “the job market“, “the economic circumstances, “the cosmos”,”society’s expectations” and anything else must be reclaimed this year. As I mentioned last week, this is a “dragon” year, a year for bold moves.

First of all, who or what determines success in the job search and in life? Consider the nature of dreams. How does clarity come to answer the question about “what do I want to do with my life?” How are foggy dreams floating in space drawn down and wrapped in bones and flesh? KUJICHAGULIA.   Kujichagulia means, “self determination” in Swahili. The second day of the celebration of Kwanzaa is dedicated to the concept of respecting the self, exercising one’s own voice, and taking personal ownership of the products of one’s own mind. This includes the responsibility of owning, creating and managing the reality one brings into existence through accumulated thoughts and acts.

The District of Columbia may dislodge the occupation in McPherson Square, a public park. The forces of that occupation live in tents. Tents are temporary. However, each individual job seeker must fully occupy with intention and consciousness the individual “thought park” where a new positive reality must not just set up a temporary encampment but dig foundations and erect structures of a new thought reality. Deciding, “I shall not be moved”; occupying your career is the first step toward success.
