After losing a job, you may find yourself starting to doubt your abilities. It is very important to keep your head held high, so to speak, and not let your confidence waver. Projecting an aura of confidence will not only help you on your interview, it will also help your family stay calm and remain confident in your ability to quickly get out of your situation.
One of the best ways to find your confidence is "to act as if it is so, even if it isn't so, so that it can be so," or in other words “fake it until you make it.” If you are feeling down on yourself, try just pretending to feel confident. You'll be surprised at the difference it makes when dealing with people. People are more prone to treat you with respect if you act like you think you deserve it. Think about the professionals who you idolize. What qualities do they have that you would like to project? Start pretending you have those qualities. Start modeling your behavior on the people that you respect. Sooner than you think, you will realize that you actually have become that kind of person.
