Accentuate the good
Oh, this boring old topic again you think?
All I have to do is summarize the past 5 years of my life, lay it out in a fabulous and original way, and overall just make myself look great! How hard is that?
Thoughts of failure have already started, they are eating away at me right now and causing the wrenching and twisting in my stomach. Once that physical feeling comes it is so hard to suppress.
This morning I have seriously almost convinced myself that I don't really want this job and therefore that I don't need to work on my resume and set myself up for failure.
I have already gone through the visual picture in my mind of me getting the job and failing at it... (gee, I'm sounding like a broken record here)
Why is that the first thing that I have to start my day with? Dunno, but I have to stop the thoughts right, just stop it!
I was told long ago by a counsellor that the way you think creates a pattern or a template for the way you will think in the future. Maybe that seems obvious to you, but for me it was a realization that if I could stop thinking the negative way and start thinking the positive way, then it would then become easier to think positively in the future.
So stop with the thoughts of failure and the reasons that I am not right for this job. Think about the reasons that I am right for this job.
Accentuate the good. Accentuate the good. Accentuate the good...
