Using Visualization for a Job Interview
In a quiet comfortable moment close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Picture yourself doing homework, anticipating possible interview questions. Being well prepared is the secret to success. Visualize yourself walking into the employer’s office calm and relaxed, greeting them with a slight smile and steady eye contact, extending your hand and introducing yourself. They offer you a seat. You say, “Thank you”, and sit down tall and straight, yet relaxed. There are a few easy preliminary questions. Then they cut to the core of the position and your background. They might ask you, “Why do you think you would be well qualified for this position?” You take a breath, look them in the eye and in a confident manner explain why you are the best person for the job. You extol you experience, skill sets, your attention to detail, and your professionalism and high standards. You wrap up by mentioning the importance of being a team player. The employer thanks you for stopping by and says they will be getting in touch with you. You stand, nod a smile and shake hands, and thank them for the opportunity, then turn and walk out with your head high. The next day you get a phone call and you hear the employer’s voice say, We think you would be perfect for the position and welcome you to our company.”
Visualizing Life Long Goals
Slip into a comfortable quiet space. Visualize your goal image in the first person. I am a wealthy financier. I am a world renowned sculptor. I am a dedicated teacher. I am a gifted doctor. I am a recording pop singer. I am a straight-A student. I am a good friend. I am an Olympic athlete. I am a loving caring parent. Visualize yourself as your chosen goal. Create a scenario staring yourself going through the steps and training to achieve your goals. See yourself receiving accolades and recognition for your accomplishments. See yourself graciously thanking people.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand”
“If you can hold it in your mind, you can hold it in your hand.”
“Expectations determines outcome.”
“In order to make a visualization a reality in the world of form, you must be willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen.”
Dr Wayne Dyer
