It's amazing how positive and powerful words can improve your attitude! Yesterday I was scheduled for an interview at 1:30 and the butterflies were fluttering rapidly in my tummy. I was beyond nervous. As I put on my new (smaller) interview worthy outfit, I thought about the challenge. I went to the mirror and stared at myself for.....a.....long.....time. The words would not come out of my mouth. Finally, I blurted out, "You can do this! You are amazing! You are smart! This company would be stupid if they don't choose me. Hold your head up. Be confident. You can do this!" The more I looked at myself, the more I said those positive words to that reflection, the more I believed it. The butterflies began to disperse and the confidence in myself began to grow.
I walked into that office with my head held high, a smile on my face, and a determination that was so fierce it scared me. Let me just say, I rocked that interview!
