Techniques to impress the Interviewer

Techniques to impress the Interviewer

There are 4 methodical steps to unlimited confidence.

Step #1 The Body
The first and most important technique is the use of our body. Everything that comes into our mind gets filtered through our body. Notice how we breathe when we are happy, where our shoulders are when we feel powerful, and  how relaxed our muscles are when we are depressed. Each is distinctive to its own emotional state. For example, if we are happy, our breathing is usually fast and deep; yet if we are depressed, it's usually slow and shallow. These  are human recipes called "Condition Formulas" and every emotional state has its own. Consider the last time you felt confident, how were you breathing, was your body tense or relaxed, was your head up or down, where were your eyes, were your movements fast or slow, were you standing or sitting? The answers to these questions depict  your physical Condition Formula for confidence. So the first step toward confidence is the implementation of this formula.

Step #2 Focus
Our brain can only truly concentrate on one thing at any given time, we cannot read this article and watch the news  at the same time. So as you continue to read, you process the information according to your own experience and values; then, you determine whether the information is true or false, good or bad, implementable or not. We do this with every occurrence, every situation and every action. Like a diamond, every circumstance has many sides,  some are shiny, some are brilliant, some are dull some are flawed, and when we look at one, that's all we see. We often see situations that cross our paths, from the perspective of the dull or flawed and hence destructive sides and thus fail to see the brilliant or shiny constructive sides. But it is a choice, and we must make a conscious effort  to decide which side to look at.
The next two steps are the tools to establish confidence as a basic element in our subconscious. To program  oneself for a spontaneous confidence that just happens in any required situation.

Step #3 Ask the Right Question

When we evaluate any situation, we will ask ourselves a question. The feelings we create, and the actions we take ( or don't ) are determined by the answers we come up with. The more control we exercise over these questions we ask, the more control we have over our state, and thus our potential.

Step #4 Frame the Concept
Changing the meaning of what we associate to any situation can dramatically change the results we get.  Fashioning new associations into habits helps to set the foundation for a spontaneous confidence - a confidence that develops unconsciously as we continue to implement our tactics, until one day it is part of us.
So How?
While the implementation of these techniques will definitely make a great difference in our levels of confidence and  our lives in general, it's not easy. It requires us to make conscious decisions in order to develop our unconscious competency. It requires us to take consistent action until it becomes our nature. It requires us to take consistent       action until it becomes our nature. It requires an uncompromising commitment to improve. And the final question is,  " Is your success worth the commitment?"
