How do you prepare and motivate yourself to help get your positive juices flowing?
If you give yourself positive affirmations, research has shown there’s a better way.
Rather than stating how well you’re going to do, how good you are, or other self-praises, instead ask yourself questions (along with positive and truthful answers).
How can I perform my best during a good interview?
How will I step out of my comfort zone in my job search?
What can I do differently today to get better results?
How can I differentiate myself from others?
In the children’s cartoon series, Bob The Builder, Bob and his construction crew often find themselves in challenging situations and he uses this questioning approach to help motivate them to get the job done.
“Can we fix it?”
“Yes, we can!”
