R’ Chaim Vital enumerated the four main good characters traits. They are: Humility, Minimizing speech, Making do with less and Being happy with a person’s lot. The current situation is helping in advancing in those traits. When a person perfects those traits he can achieve Hashem’s illumination. What else can a person ask for?

The right path

August 23, 2011

It seemed to be a perfect fit. The domain was the similar, they were happy with my knowledge and my past experience and the other candidates did not know basic programming. I thought that it is a great opportunity but Hashem decided otherwise and they declined because my commute is too long (1 hour).  Thank You Hashem for leading me on the right path and not allowing me to wonder off on my own.

That was right for me

One of the ploys of the Yetzer Horah, was to attack me for taking the IT Management Masters course when my position at Viecore was endangered, rather than picking up additional technologies. In the job market, everyone seemed to be focused on technologies rather than on degrees.

It was only now that I understood that it was all part of hashem’s plan. My job, the place that is right for me, they will want a degree and be satisfied with the technologies I already know.

Perspective

Hashem helped me to put my job search situation into perspective. The Yetzer Horah was getting me down and I didn’t know what to do; I cried out to Hashem. Hashem in His mercy gave me a medical scare to a family member. After the medical scare was found to be without merit I can now relax and put my job search into perspective.
