Build The Fear, Then Do It!

Have you ever seen a scary movie trailer? It gives you enough excitement and scare tactic to get you to that big screen. With the big booms, eerie sounds, and weird looking actors the production company creates a dare that you can't resist. This is exactly how I felt when I went on my first interview. I was nervous, happy, doubtful, scared, and fearful.

Are you afraid?

My first job that I applied to was at a fast food chain restaurant. I had no interview or employment experience. I was 15 years of age, a cheerleader, and had dreams of buying my first car. I giggle at this picture because i had no idea how much money i needed to make to buy a car, but I had the aspiration. I can remember when I got the call from the store manager that he wanted me to come in for an interview. Instantly, that is when it hit me. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO EXPECT ON THIS INTERVIEW! I became nervous, doubtful, scared, and fearful.

Fast Food

Although I had all this fear built up in me, I still went to the interview and was offered the position that same day. What I learned that day I have applied many times in my daily life. I learned that having those fears of being nervous, doubtful, scared, and fearful are normal and its okay. You have to be aware of your fears and of course face them. For me, I always focus on the aspiration of whatever I am trying to do. Like when I was 15 years old applying for my first job, I knew that I wanted to buy a car one day and I knew in order for me to do that I had to face my fear . I was aware of my fear: the interview. But, I did it anyway.
