When you are interviewing, it is easy to become discouraged and feel defeated and dejected. It's not just you; everyone experiences rejection in the process.
Here are some motivational thoughts to keep you positive and energized when your job search—and life for that matter—is looking bleak and hopeless.
1. Treat each day as a new beginning. Don’t get caught up with all the failures from the past. Forget about prior indiscretions, feuds, animosities or something a family member said to you 13 years ago that you forgot what it even was, but you still won’t talk with them. This is history. History is over. You are not that person any longer. You are the person living in the here and now.
2. There are no “what ifs” only “what’s next.” So, you made the wrong choice over which college to attend and chose the wrong major. You didn’t have a mentor or get the big break. We have to move on and forget about the “what ifs.” It is a new start. There are so many successful people who have made it big later in life. They learned from their mistakes and then catapulted their careers. Some people made all the so-called "right choices," did well at first and now are just flatlining. Your life and career are long-term marathons and not sprints.
