Defeat, rejection, losing. (Stuart Brill)

Fascinating article from the BBC on how athletes should manage their emotions before they compete in order to make the result easier to come to terms. The same is true from the perspective of a job-hunter, for instance I was always taught in a sporting context to always to visualise winning and never losing (it didn’t work). Yet as the BBC article, and common sense, suggests this isn’t viable for most job hunters. The message is therefore: commit to achieving what you want, in whatever environment, but realism and good planning can make the outcome a little easier to manage.
