I am a big Tony Robbins fan. His content is so rich and listening to or reading his work always puts me in a great mood.
I often ponder quotes and try to apply them to real life.
Most people are in fact average. Average meaning ‘the middle point’.
No hiring manager (that i have met) strives to hire an average candidate, they want the best they can get that also provides the most value.
The average candidates will:
❌ Do the minimum of preparation
❌ rely on chance to get the job
❌ think because they are good at the job that this will be sufficient
The best candidates will:
☑️ Engage in deliberate practice
☑️ Get out of their comfort zone, make mistakes and iterate
☑️ Make incremental steps and progressively get better over time
☑️ Learn how to sell themselves and demonstrate their value
Two sessions with a great interview coach nine years ago transformed me , since them i haven’t look back.
