Brothers and sisters in arms Mike Sarraille, hear from CareerRecon.

Hey, good to see you guys again, we’re gonna talk a little bit about positivity. As you remember, we had certain adages in the military that we would follow “Positivity breeds positivity, negativity begets more negativity”. 

When I come across a veteran who’s transitioning and they just got this negative mindset, and maybe they’re trash talking their civilian counterparts. I don’t even want to deal with them, because I know how that outcome is gonna end up, poorly! guys as you approach this transition which you heard me earlier, there’s no way to sugarcoat it. It sucks!. You’re trying to find a new career, and that ain’t easy! You dedicated your life in defense of this country, but you got to go in with an “attitude of gratitude” and be positive. 

If you show that upbeat, positive nature, in an interview. If you can convey your value to that company with a smile on your face. you’re eventually going to come across a company that’s going to appreciate your growth mindset, your “attitude of gratitude”. Gratitude, your positivity, and I guarantee you’ll get hired a lot quicker. 

Positivity breeds positivity, negativity begets more negativity

Hey, it’s very easy to become negative in this process, when you’ve maybe done three interviews and gotten a no at each interview. A positive person looks at each of those and says, I didn’t lose, I learned, and actually digs in. They become self reflective, why didn’t I get those jobs? It’s not the hiring manager’s fault from that company that they said no. Ultimately, if I take ownership it’s mine. So, remain positive throughout this, and I guarantee it’ll be a much better experience for you and your family. Alright, out here, guys.
