This can often be a difficult task to deploy, especially when you consider we live in a world where we are constantly fed with negative information, either from the media, news on TV, friends and family.

So you need to build yourself up if you really want to land that dream job. You can achieve this by thinking of all the positive things you have done, your achievements, remember the last time you were given a praise, any positive in your life no matter how little can help in this process. It is the same with actors, when an actor has to play a sad scene on screen or stage and in that situation it might mean they have to shed some tears, I have heard some actors using a negative moment in their life, something that really hurt them, that caused them to cry. So they call upon that negative energy or situation so as to re-enact a scene.

You can use the same technique to work for you in an environment such as an Interview, where you need to be positive.

If you cannot think of anything, just say: "I am the best person for this job and I am going to get this job." It is almost spiritual, a self - fulfilling prophecy if you like in how this works on your mind, you actually start to feel positive and powerful just by making an effort to change your state of mind. Like the great Henry Ford said: "If you feel you're right, you're right, and if you feel you're wrong, you're right." If you go into an interview believing the job is yours, may not always work, but i guarantee you you are already a step up from your competition, with a far better chance of landing that dream job.

I believe Eleanor Roosevelt says it best: "No one can make you feel inferior unless you consent."

So you have the power and ability to go out there and obtain your dream job, one that you and your family deserve.
