Job Interview Confidence #1
Confidence is an emotional state. The naturally state for most in the job interview, is anxiety.
This technique is quick and powerful, and will spin your anxiety into the feeling of extreme confidence
First think about being in a job interview. As you imagine this situation, focus on the feeling of anxiety inside of you. Notice where this anxious feeling originates from in your body; your stomach, feet, chest, head
As you focus on this feeling of anxiety you will feel it move inside of you, you will feel it spinning. Imagine you can see this spinning feeling and give it a colour.
Imagine pushing the feeling externally. See it spinning in front of you.
Flip this spinning feeling back on itself so it spins in the opposite direction, spin it faster and faster, faster still until it changes colour.
Once it changes colour, push it back inside of you replacing the old feeling. Spin it faster and faster inside of you until you start to feel the feeling of confidence spreading throughout the whole of your body.
Do this before your job interview and you will double your job interview confidence
