No matter how much you actually prepare for a big…presentation, public speech, meeting, or interview…nothing quite prepares you for those few minutes immediately preceding the big event. You can study, rehearse in front of the mirror, practice in front of friends, do your research, and make your plans, but that’s all about the content of this meeting, interview, or presentation. What about the way you present it? That’s not so cut and dry. That falls on your mental and emotional state. All of your planning, researching, and rehearsing go to waste if you aren’t in a good state of mind when you walk in there. Furthermore, a good state of mind can even compensate for a little lack of preparation (but, do prepare—that was just a comment on the power of positive thinking). So here are ways to boost your confidence before an important meeting.

Talk to your biggest cheerleader

You know who that is. Maybe it’s your boyfriend, husband, best friend, mother, or sister. This person has always been in awe of you and all that you do and is quick to say so. You always feel invincible after talking to this loved one. Give her or him a quick call and say you need an ego boost.
