Comments on: Competition versus Excellence the practical spirituality of unconditional love Tue, 27 Jul 2010 11:12:14 +0000 hourly 1 By: Enocia Wed, 31 Aug 2005 12:37:07 +0000 Dear Jide,

I’m sorry to hear about your experiences.

Just a few ideas you might find useful.

Have you got a particular job in mind that you’ve dreamed of, a job that makes you feel as if you’re expressing your highest joy?

If you don’t, imagine you have. Visualise yourself with a job you love. See yourself waking up every day eager to go to work because you love your job so much. See yourself at your desk loving what you do. Visualise yourself getting on well with your colleagues and your boss. Imagine you love your job so much you would do it without getting paid. Not that I’m saying you shouldn’t get paid, of course. :-)

It is important for you to continue feeling joy no matter what. To help you be in that state of joy, always do what you love. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. It could be going for walks, having a laugh with friends, or listening to music – whatever makes you feel joy.

Trust in your God-Self to sort out the details. I believe you already have a perfect job right now.

All the very best Jide.

Love always,

By: Jide Olugbon Sat, 27 Aug 2005 15:38:07 +0000 Dear Sir,

I’m truly sorry to barge in on you like this, but I am at the end of my tether and would greatly appreciate the benefits of your insights.

I am a 26-year old Nigerian chap who has been unable to secure a job four years since leaving colege here in Nigeria. Hard as I try, I never seem to make it past the interview panel of several organisations I’ve applied to. In my desperation, I’ve resorted to writing my applications on coloured paper and even attaching a passport photograph.

Lately, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m perhaps not doing a good enough job of ‘selling’ my potential to these potential employers. However beyond knowing this, I am at a loss as to how to actually go about ‘selling’ my potential.

Sir given your vast expertise and experience in these matters I wish to from the depth of my heart appeal to you for tips – the missing link in my past failed attempts -you think I can employ to bring about a positive change in my situation. I do not ask for bread; only the tool and techniques of baking mine.

Please can you help sir?

Yours sincerely,

Jide Olugbon.
