These negative thoughts make us nervous and enable to answer the simplest of questions. So being positive is a crucial point before going to a job interview

Before the interview, may be a day before, remember to mentally rehearse the interview from your own perspective: When you are pleased with the imagined performance you are producing, step inside the image of yourself and run through the scenarios again as if YOU are now doing it. See, feel and hear it as if it is really happening. This time, you are looking out into the world from your own eyes, so your arms are directly in front of you with people facing you, as you feel your clothes on your body. Allow it all to unfold in great detail - make it as real as possible by letting your imagination free to create a rich and colorful panoramic view of a successful day. Finally, pay special attention again to feelings, really spend time imagining yourself feeling exactly the way you want to feel, and then go get the job! It is a proven fact that visualizing your success can get you exactly that. If you think of negative things, then you will be bound to get that.

Like anything in life it takes time to get really good at mental rehearsal. Using this visualization technique for twenty minutes a day will train your brain to perform new behaviors. The results will astound you. Judge mental rehearsal by trying it out in the real world and decide for yourself how effective it can be. Use it to prepare for those crucial job interviews and enjoy the satisfaction that comes from knowing that you are performing at your very best.

Eventually you will be able to use this approach in day-to-day situations on the spur of the moment by focusing on using the power of your imagination. Imagination is the gift an individual has got. Use it today for your success and the stepping stone to a new future with brighter prospects!
