What are positive affirmations?
Positive affirmations are short sentences spoken in the present tense with strong, uplifting words that help you get rid of negative thinking patterns.
For example, to beat interview anxiety, you could practice saying:
I'm calm and confident.
As you continue to repeat them and firmly believe in them, they start to become true!

In addition to an overall improvement in outlook, practicing positive affirmations offers immediate benefits:
Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
Control over frustration, annoyance, and impatience
How do positive affirmations help you feel more confident?
According to a study, positive affirmations trigger the brain's reward centers.
When these reward centers are stimulated, your anxiety begins to calm and you start feeling confident.
By activating these reward centers through positive affirmations, you can reduce anxiety, boost confidence, and increase your chances of a successful interview.
How do you practice positive affirmations before a job interview?
Follow these steps to make the most of positive affirmations before your job interview:
Set up an affirmative statement regarding the type of experience you think you'll have in your next few job interviews.
For example, "I should impress my interviewers with my abilities."
Set it in the present tense.
"I impress my interviewers with my abilities."
Say the affirmation when you first wake up, before you go to bed, and as often as possible throughout the day.
