How to win on the job hunt?
Picture wild success. Then take the next step.
Before you sit down to work today, take 30 seconds and visualize what you desire.
Picture getting an AMAZING response back to your pitch email. Watch yourself nailing the interview. Imagine the feeling of working for a company you love. See the paycheck appear in your bank account.
No, we’re not woo-woo about Law of Attraction stuff. But there’s power in planting the seed in your subconscious mind.
Nothing happens unless first a dream.
Dreams don’t come true, decisions do.
