It's all about your internal dialogue. You can learn anything. Look after your health with enough sleep and exercise. Be selective about whose advice you listen to, and continue to work hard in your present job until the last day.
- I was unemployed for a short period once.…I called it being between jobs, because I was telling myself…that I was bound to get another job, which, of course,…I did after a while, but it was really easy…to slip into a negative frame of mind during that period.…I remember being in town at lunchtime once…and all these people in suits were coming out of the offices…and hurrying importantly off to get a coffee…with their briefcases and their phones.…And I remember bitterly hating them,…because their lives were so great and mine wasn't.…
But of course, being eaten up with bitterness…isn't going to make me a great job prospect…or put me in a good state of mind to write letters…asking for a job or phoning people up for one.…So I think the first thing, if you're between jobs…or if you think this is even a possibility,…is to look after yourself physically.…Get plenty of sleep.…I know you can stay up 'til 3:00 a.m. watching TV…because you have no job to go to, but resist this.…And get some exercise so that you feel good…
