Had an awesome opportunity to help a friend this morning when she Facebook messaged me and said she was having trouble landing a job, she asked for my advice, here is my response, hope it helps you too:
Do you truly believe in yourself? Do you believe strongly that you deserve the jobs you are going after? Do you think that you are the absolute best for the job? Is that the mindset you are taking into these interviews? The person I remember growing up with is strong, smart, sweet, kind, funny, goofy, intelligent, and awesome! I believe you deserve those jobs you are going after, you have to believe it. If you walk in timid and scared and worried you will come off as such.
The reason people will hire you is not only for your skills and your resume it is because of what they see in you, strong belief! If you do not have it, build it! Every time I walk into an interview to list someones home for sale, right before I go in, I look into my car mirror and I say to my self, "I am the best at what I do, I am the best at what I do, I am the best at what I do, I will walk out of here with a signed listing agreement." Every morning when I wake up I say to myself, "It is an awesome day and I will positively impact the lives of everyone I touch!" I go through 25 affirmations every single day, feeding my mind with positive thoughts of who I am and what I will become. I drive belief into myself then I take action and I kick ass!
Our lives are to short to live in a negative self defeating state. I believe it is not only your skills and your resume that get you the job, I look for belief and confidence in people. This may be what you are lacking right now. Try this, I swear, it does not happen over night, but if you will commit to filling your mind with great thoughts about who you are, CONSISTENTLY, and you take action, you will watch your life change for the better for ever! After all, how do you think a troubled, non college grad, with no business background became one of the top producing real estate agents in the world….BELIEF! And action!
Love to you and believe in you!
