« Confidence | Main | Be present »


Taking the time to center yourself--whether it's before a job interview, a big presentation, in heavy traffic or just to relieve some stress of everyday life--is an effective way to shift energy and to visualize what your preferred outcome of the situation may be.  When finding yourself with frazzled nerves or impending stress, sit calmly and take measured, slow breaths.  Close your eyes (unless you are driving) and visualize the preferred outcome of the situation.  For example, if you are about to give a presentation, take a couple of minutes while sitting in your office and center yourself.  Visualize doing well and successfully presenting your ideas.  Imagine that everyone will be impressed with you and your ideas will be received well.  Do this for a couple of minutes until you find yourself smiling, and then go give that presentation!
