False Hope( Looking forward to something that has no chance of happening)
Most of us deal with this when we go on that interview, everything is going so well. You sit there and have the best conversation with the interviewer, he/she is all smiles with you, laughing and talking. Then you are told those words you love to hear,”you are just the type of candidate we are looking for…” Theres the false hope.. you think to yourself, yes!! I’ve got this!!! Then the dreaded words come to play,”We do however have a few more candidates to interview…” Whoa, my brain begins to over think. I know what that means!!! You walk out of the office feeling a certain way. Maybe you have a chance, then again you probably don’t. You don’t know how many times when I was job hunting, did I let those thoughts infiltrate my mind.
Let me tell you this, (this is also what I am telling my children) you can’t go through life thinking that you are not good enough. Don’t let the words of others disease your mind against yourself. YOU MATTER! Don’t think just because you weren’t hired by that certain employer that you aren’t good enough! That just means that there is something much better out there for you. You just have to go and find it! Dont sit around and dwell on it.. Get moving!! Get out there and make your mark on the World!
This feeling of False hope that we tend to feel. We need to let that go! We need to walk out of that office thinking we did it! We know that we have what it takes to fulfill that position, and if we are not hired, than that is the loss of the company. They will be the ones missing out on a Damn good employee! I am going to use the words of one of my favorite songs, by the Beautiful Aaliyah,”IF AT FIRST YOU DONT SUCCEED, DUST YOURSELF OFF AND TRY AGAIN.”
Have a Spectacular Sunday!!
Lots of love from ME to YOU
