Today was such a day for me. Nothing planned, just flowed with the tide of each thing that I did and by golly, I got the exact results I wanted.
I'm finding that as I get older, if anything I do is done without fear, tension, nervousness, apprehension, concern, the thought of what others will think...all that negative "stuff", I get great results. I've gotten bolder and couldn't care less about what others think.
One example is being interviewed for any reason. I HATE interviews! I would get nervous, fearful, tongue-tied, forget the questions I planned to ask, and sweaty palms. Well, I had an interview for a project today and it was one of the easiest ones I've ever done. I did a quick review of the company online before going in and had in mind the questions I was going to ask. I didn't even bother writing them down like I normally would. I walked in, sat down, chit-chatted with the interviewers as if I knew them before, they volunteered information and I simply asked questions along the line of the information given...really vibed well with the ladies. At the end of it, I thanked them both, shook their hands and left. I felt great!
I got out of the building and was still on my way home when I received a call from their office, saying how much they loved me! That I made them comfortable and that they didn't feel like I was a person they were meeting for the very first time. I thought "wow, it's so much easier being yourself and not try to change into this fearful, nervous soul in everything I do." It worked for me!
Wish I had adhered to this way of thinking earlier in my life. Anyway, better late than never. Right?
