Remaining positive during job searching can be tough, but it’s important being optimistic so we can keep pushing forward. I know with me, if I allow myself to get into that self-pity mode, I make it nearly impossible for myself to move forward. It’s a very dangerous place for me to be.

When I get down, sometimes it takes me a bit before I even notice it. It’s then that I can think of a time when it was even worse and I made it through that time of struggle. So I know if I made it through even tougher times, I can make it through my current struggle too. Being without income can be a very humiliating experience.

Don’t get discouraged if you don’t hear back from employers right away, and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Remember, finding a job is a full-time job.

If you’re an ex-offender who has successfully found a job, can you share your tips and experiences in the comments below and help inspire the rest of us who may be struggling to find work? Maybe we can support and uplift one another as we work to build brighter futures for ourselves, our families, and our communities… #positive #forward #possible

O.Q.P. These three letters I keep close to me so when I need to transform these three letters into actionable words, they are more easily accessible. When I first learned of the Only Quality People (O.Q.P.) method, I already knew that who I hung around I may eventually become. That thought never remained in my thoughts, though; it would merely surface now and again. I never thought other people could really affect me in any kind of way when it came to moving myself forward. Then I heard it differently, and it was an ah ha moment as I reflected back and saw the role others played throughout my life. This is a tough concept to follow because how do we judge the quality in a person? How do we rate them? I myself do not ever judge a person by what someone else has told me about them. In fact I don’t judge people at all. I simply see how they are with me. If they don’t come with an angle and they don’t do me wrong, I view them as a good person and I trust them. Because I view them as a good person doesn’t mean that I also view them as quality person. When I decide if they are OQP I look at their life to see if they are moving in a forward positive direction, are they involved in things that move them forward. This is important to me because I have been in a constant motion moving forward for as long as I can remember, and it bothers me when I feel like I’m not. And when I feel like I'm not, I’m not happy. I am also the type that doesn’t deal with stress real well, so when unhappiness leads to stress, I don’t get anything done to move me forward. People that do not have my best interest in mind, those who always have an angle, who try to get over on me, those I have to keep a third eye on, those I know I can’t trust cause me stress and prevent me from moving forward. That is what I mean by OQP. Disassociating myself from their lives doesn’t mean I think I’m better than them, it doesn’t mean I think they will never be successful. It just means that they hinder my forward progression, which is unacceptable to me. I think this video will say it much better than I have tried to. Just something, for those who may be interested, to ponder. Click the link below for a two-minute video that may help you in your forward progression, which will help in your job search, as you practice O.Q.P.

What I loved about working at #Forward manor senior living was to take care of the residents.

To go back in work environment as a dietary aide or in customer service
