Here’s an interesting question from a student:
“Does the job of an individual affect his inner power? As in what if he is doing something very destructive or negative to him but cannot change it? What can he do in that situation?”
Not necessarily the job itself, but what you do for 8+ hours a day can certainly influence your inner power and magnetism.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a job, or if you are home alone for those 8+ hours.
It matters what you do, how you feel and your mental and energetic state in that large chunk of time.
If you spend those 8+ hours watching netflix or aimlessly browsing the internet, don’t expect much improvement in your inner power or personal magnetism, even if you are doing 20minutes a day of magnetism exercises.
The same way, if you spend those 8+ hours in a job you hate with a negative mental state and energy quality, then it doesn’t take a bit leap of logic to understand that not much improvement will come to your magnetism.
Your mental state and energy are crucial and play a large role in your own magnetism. If they are negative during the large part of your day, they will influence and leave its mark on your magnetism even if later in the day you’re doing something you love.
The same way, if it’s the opposite situation… meaning, you’re doing something that energizes you for 8+ a day, but then you’ll spend an hour or so doing something you hate, the positive mental state and energy you get from those 8+ hours will help you carry on that period where you’re doing something you hate. So your (positive) magnetism won’t be that much affected.
The larger period of time influences the smaller.
While there are exceptions (depending on the intensity of the smaller period of time), this rule works most of the time.
Since we fortunately don’t live in an age of slavery, you are not forced in keeping this same activity for a long time.
You may think that you are training your inner power by sticking to it and endure it, but you have plenty of other easier ways to do so that doesn’t involve doing something you hate for 8+ hours a day.
Your best alternative is to change jobs and go do something else that energizes you most of the time.
If, for some reason, that is not possible , then the alternative is indeed to be extra attentive to everything we discuss on the 10 Steps to Inner Power and be extra vigilant on your own mental state and energy by blocking out the bad external circumstances.
Although, keep in mind that changing your life is always possible.
Once you set your mind to it, you’ll find an alternative. The problem is often convincing yourself that is possible, but once you are convinced, you’ll find a way.
As the saying goes: “When there’s a Will, there’s a way”.
