Relaxed, Poised, Charming Confident
That phrase repeated to yourself has a soothing effect. I believe it builds serotonin in the brain. I tell it to folks in coaching them for interviews. But it has wider application. What if you have received disturbing news about your current project…. Use it! It will empower you to react in a calm professional manner. Perhaps it can help you produce lemonade on receipt of lemons.
What if you have an issue with your significant other? The phrase will take you to a better place in which to respond. We all need another tool for our toolbelt!
Visualize Yourself Walking Through The Door. On the other Side of that Door You will Meet and Make Lifelong Friends!
This is another image, I give interviewees contemplating an office, in which they’ll meet a potential Hiring Manager and Staff members. To use it you have to actively play that scene out in your mind. Again it is empowering. It lifts you up. And it will also put that large, confident smile on your face. Hey I’m smiling right now! Visualize that a group of people you will meet will become your lifelong friends. It’s a magical thought. But it’s another tool for your toolkit.
All in all we can never have too many tools!
