In my attempt to manifest my perfect job, I keep contacting different people, sending my CV to several companies and friends and anyone I come across whom I think may be able to lead me to my perfect job. Now, these are actions I take because I chance upon them and I just feel that this might be it, which will lead me to the job. Am yet to manifest what I want, but having done what I felt like doing, I wonder why I have not been able to hit the spot yet? How do I differentiate between what I do/feel like doing to inspired action to manifest things? How do I know if my action was an inspired action or not?
Thanks for the help.
My own personal rule for when to take action comes from Abraham.
When asked about this matter they quoted the following rule of thumb (from someone else, can't remember who)...
If it doesn't feel like "Hell, Yeah!" then it's "Hell, No!"
In other words, true inspired action is so compelling and irresistable that you almost cannot stop yourself acting on it. It just feels obviously like the thing to do at that moment, even if you don't know why.
If you really don't act until you feel that level of enthusiasm then you'll probably find that you don't really take a lot of inspired action at all. Most of the time, you are just doing other things that make you happy instead while you let the universe get on with doing what it needs to do behind the scenes.
I think the major obstacle that people encounter when waiting for this level of inspiration to happen is that they fear they may be missing opportunities.
But you need never be concerned about that. Even if you miss what was intended to be an inspired action, the Universe has a backup plan to give you another, and another, and another, and another, and another...and so on.
In fact, on many occasions (because I like pushing the limits!), I've actually increased my level of filtering of what I consider to be an inspired action i.e. I've told myself that I won't act until I feel really, really, really inspired instead of just inspired but still without feeling any fear that I am missing anything.
In those cases, either I have actually received an action that was really, really, really inspired, or else I have received the next vibrational match (or manifestation) without taking any action at all.
Never be afraid to play, test and have fun with these ideas. If you are in alignment with what you want then it cannot not come to you. It will find a way even if you try your best to stop it! :)

Inspired action for me is usually when something just pops into my mind. It's not something I ruminate on or try to analyze but rather just a thought that emerges from nowhere and seems at that moment the right thing to do - it always renders a positive result.

You will know when it comes from seemingly nowhere and after you FEEL inspired.

Just sharing. Previously my inspired thoughts tends to be volatile when I am in an emotionally negative state. Then I didn't know better and I still acted on it and often made matters worse.
Recently I have started to take note of presence of my guardian angels and I realised that I had inspired thoughts that are humble, warm and positive. Which leads to positive actions. For e.g. I had an argument with a good friend and I didn't agree with the choice she made. The next day I had a migraine due to poor stomach, I wasn't even thinking how to reconcile the situation. I was just trying to be calm and clear my mind (to handle the migraine). I had this sudden thought (saw mental words), told me to say Thank you to my friend for the choice she made. The feeling was warm and I felt no frustration anymore. And I did and we talked it out...
So I guess it is important to have a good emotional state or a clear mind when having the inspired thought so that the action you take will most likely be positive.
