Why positive thinking alone will not help with your anxiety, causing many high potential job seekers to lose their calm and their dream career.? In this post, I’ll share with you how to better manage anxiety and how people have been using neuroscience to relieve anxiety before job interviews.
If you are on a job search, feeling anxious and uncertain, this is for you.
In my work at jitters.SG, I work with the subconscious mind to support working professionals in managing anxiety so that they can be their best self for life’s important moments.
From my coaching experience, I realize people only come to coaching when they feel there’s a big problem to solve. The truth is a big problem is the accumulation of small problems that are not addressed properly. Anxiety is one of those seemingly small problems, which people usually chuck aside, and force themselves through it without spending enough time to understand and process it. Over time, the anxiety gets triggered more often and in greater intensity, hindering their performance and success, and becomes a costly problem.
First, let’s start with understanding what is anxiety.
Anxiety is our body's natural response to stress. It's a feeling of fear or nervousness about what's to come. The first day of school, going to a job interview, or giving a speech may cause anxiety.
Now, recall the last time when you feel anxious, what happened, what was about to happen? What did you do to cope with your anxiety? Meditate? Breathe? Eat? Drink? Distract yourself? Vent it out?
Whatever is your coping mechanism - I would like to invite you to keep an open mind and follow this.
Look inside, not outside. This applies, even more especially when you are anxious about your job search.
You already have the knowledge needed for the job - you don’t need to search for more.
You already have the skills to excel for the interview - you don’t need to go for more workshops.
You already have the answers and inner wisdom to help you - you don’t need gurus or external stimulus.
Anxiety is an internal state, most often associated with something happening in the future. The more you look outside, the further you are away from resolving your anxiety. Stop overloading yourself with external influences and distractions and allow yourself to sit with your feelings and emotions. The biggest gift to yourself is the gift of self-acknowledgement and self-awareness.
According to scientific research, your Conscious Mind makes up less than 10 percent of your total brain function. That means that the Subconscious represents around 90 percent of your total brain function. Looking inside is the first step to help you tap into the power of the Subconscious to better understand your anxiety, where it comes from, and give it the rightful amount of attention.
In my work as an anxiety coach, I hold the space for my clients to tap into the power of their subconscious, and guide them to fully explore their anxiety triggers. Our method leverages the power of neuroscience to calm the mind and create change in the brain. It is based strongly on the re-consolidation of memories process.
It is fast, effective, gentle and respectful. You will not only benefit for your upcoming job interviews, but will also learn a new way to manage anxiety for any important events in the future.
