Be a PROBLEM-SOLVER

People (Employers) do business with (hire) people they like and trust;

Employers are hiring to solve their money making problem(s).

Not because they care about others; Identify the potential employer problem(s). And offer solution(s); Talk (interview) will lead to:

> Interest OR lack of it.> Thinking OR lack of it.> Positive OR negative impression

CHALLENGING THAUGHTS

Attitude > the mother of all actions. 2nd place, is the looser #1. GOOD is the best enemy of GREAT.

Why? COURAGE = decision that something

else is more important than FEAR. Faith and determination defeat fear! Human problems are on the root. That

is, on the brain; Mental control eliminates problems..

Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway

(Book by: Susan Jeffers)

No one is fearless, Hold to your fears and live the life the

way you want to live it. Move from a place of pain, paralysis and

depression; to one of power, energy, and enthusiasm.

There is Plenty of Time

Impatience” is the biggest pitfalls of our life! Being impatient is a way of punishing ourselves! When ready to move forward – we will. Until then, keep learning and progressing. Life is an ongoing process of learning;

do not punish yourself for not having done it (yet). Commit yourself to pushing through the fear Become more than you are at the present Commit to learning how to bring energy to your

Higher Self. Whatever it takes to get you there, Feel the Fear

and Do It Anyway.
