Do you ever just feel like your life is falling into place? Like everything you’ve ever wanted is happening and you’ve never been happier? That’s exactly how I’m feeling at the moment. I’ve just got a new job, the dream job I’ve always wanted and I feel like my life is going in the direction I want it too.
I’ve had the same job for the last 4 years, I love it and enjoy every day, but it wasn’t my dream job while I was at school and college. I’m beginning to think now maybe I wasn’t applying for my dream job because I was afraid. Afraid of not getting the job, messing up the interview, the job not being as good as I’d imagined or even not being good at the job I’d always thought of as my dream career.
My inspiration to apply for this job was my sister, she’s an apprentice at the school and has been doing really well, she is amazing at the job and so passionate. When I saw how much she loved work and all the amazing things the school does I had to apply. When it came round to the interview I had a weird feeling, like I was ready. I wasn’t nervous, scared or any of the normal feelings that go with an interview. I was confident in my ability and that I was perfect for the job, a feeling I hadn’t experienced before.
When I got there for the interview I still felt confident, talking to the staff and the other people being interviewed. I felt like a different person – the old me wouldn’t have smiled or said hi to someone walking by let alone make conversation with strangers in a meeting room before an interview. I was so happy with how the interview went, I didn’t stumble or stutter, I spoke confidently and was so happy with everything I said and did. I just couldn’t believe the feelings I felt and how confident I was.
I found out the evening after the interview that I had been successful and got the job. I had really good feedback from the interview. I can only put this newly found confidence down to NLP and the personal development that I am doing, it’s amazing the difference it makes. I’m so proud that I’ve managed to turn my life around from anxiety and depression to feeling confident in myself, my job role, sport and my life.
