How to Win the Judges Interview – The Art of Sales in Pageantry

How to Win the Judges Interview – The Art of Sales in Pageantry

I have learned in pageantry that winning the Judges Interview is about mastering the art of sales in pageants. For nearly 17 years I had the privilege of being in Media Sales and Marketing. I sold “air” for a living and made a very healthy livelihood doing this for radio stations.  As a pageant coach I teach my clients everyday how to “sell” themselves in the Judges Interview room and still remain authentic and personable. The art of sales is less about forcing another person to believe in your product and more about you believing in your own product. Then the job is easier to do when you meet a room of 5 Judges who have only moments to get to know you.

I have realized that women have a more difficult time selling themselves to strangers than do men. Culturally I feel it is because we are taught as children that it isn’t polite to brag about ourselves, so we wear this badge of honor as adults and think this will somehow let people see how humble we are. When it comes to winning a Judges Interview, the best salesperson in the room will win – period. The problem arises when we do not understand the art of sales and do not understand ourselves enough to know what to share with judges. Sales should be an effortless process that involves ourselves as the product and our platform as the service. If we do not understand what we have to offer in terms of our product and services, then it becomes more challenging to share our strengths with those judges.

Being a national and international pageant winner, I have learned the art of sales applies to anything we are attempting to achieve in life. We need to become comfortable being uncomfortable through knowing how to sell ourselves and our services. As a pageant coach my goal is to get “into your head” and understand what strengths you offer for the job of titleholder and show you easy steps to sharing these strengths with your judges. If you cannot sell yourself in 30-60 seconds then you risk not becoming memorable in the interview room, which will reflect in your scores. Learn the art of sales in pageantry and you learn how to succeed in your Judges Interview!

Preparing the Mind to Win in Pageants and in Life – Overcoming Fear

When it comes to preparing the mind to win a pageant or a life goal, our success depends on the relationship we have to that specific goal. As an International Pageant Coach, I work daily with clients around the world who are bullied because they are competing for a title. They have been called selfish, self-absorbed, and become targets for people who don’t feel good about themselves. Everyday I am helping at least one client overcome this fear of not being liked or being targeted. Unfortunately, this creates a fear in our hearts and could prevent us from achieving our greatest goals just because someone else does not approve of our journey. We need to overcome our fear of needing the approval from others as well as from our judges.

Pageantry and any competition is about being self-sufficient and realizing you are the creator of your own experience. In order to shut out the noise from the world, you need to focus on replacing the negative with something positive. Since the mind cannot think of two things simultaneously, then you can control your thoughts which will help control your emotions. It takes practice, but it is possible and will help you become that much closer to having a close connection to your goal and achieve it.

So how do we overcome much of the fear that is associated with competing in pageants or in anything through life? The best way to replace the noise from the world around you is to replace the sound with the sound of your own voice. Here are some helpful tips that can get your mind back on track towards accomplishing your goals:

  1. Validate yourself and your own beauty, fitness, strengths, etc… Realize we are all being judged by people who lack confidence in themselves, so often they turn the attention from their own weaknesses to highlighting ours. If you are not used to validating your own strengths and character, then you may be more susceptible owning another person’s opinion of you. Focus on those strengths about your character, personality, achievements, and strengths that you honor in yourself. When you focus on what you are in gratitude for, then the negativity will be replaced with positive emotions and thoughts.
  2. Change your self-talk: compliment yourself daily in front of the mirror on your transformation whether it is fitness or spiritual. Once you begin complimenting yourself and change your self-talk you won’t need the approval from the world around you. It amazes me how much I hear women put themselves down and when it comes to receiving compliments, then it becomes much more difficult to accept them. We would rather believe the negative things about ourselves than accept the positive aspects to the amazing children of God that we are.
  3. Be Accountable: If you know you are applying for a job interview through pageantry, then you want to change your perspective from not having any control into being in complete control over how you prepare. Your fitness should be a daily routine, your nutrition should be supporting your goals, and your interview preparation should be executed daily. The more tangible you can make your pageant goals, the easier it becomes for your brain to wrap around the fact you already have this experience in your life today.
  4. Focus on what you can control – I have realized that the harder we work and the better we become at our craft, the more opposition we may encounter. Whether you are focusing on achieving a pageant goal or a personal life goal, someone will always have an opinion. However, their opinion doesn’t have to become your own. All we know is our own perspective, so if you are being bullied or oppressed by another person, realize they are telling you what they think of themselves… it has nothing to do with you. Don’t own their illusion of you by making it your reality. You can control your thoughts, emotions, and actions so stay focused on your goal and don’t allow anyone or anything to deter you.

Preparing to win any competition whether it is a pageant or a life goal is about overcoming the fear associated with having that specific goal in our lives. If your love for winning is overtaken by your fear of not being approved of, then you risk allowing your fear to prevent you from doing everything possible to win. It is up to you as to how you create the experience. This journey is about celebrating you and the life you have today, so do everything in your power to create the experience with as much love and joy as your heart can embrace!

Discovering Your Purpose- 2 More Days!

“Within each soul lies a blueprint so authentic that nobody else can recreate it as their own. This blueprint celebrates your passion and the journey your soul has taken to discover itself as a co-creator with Source. Your journey unfolds into pure love and potential when you connect with your blueprint and understand that it too searches to connect with you. Knowing this, you can no longer deceive yourself into an illusion you must seek that purpose in a world outside of you. When you discover your purpose and live your life on the path your journey is meant to take you, only then will you realize that utopia has been within you all along. Your state of being is meant to bring you peace and love and celebrate all that you are.

Cease from searching for your truth in a world filled with illusion and fear. Look within your own soul to uncover your treasures of knowledge and love which overflow in abundance. My child you have searched your heart and realized your gifts lie within your spirit to connect you to me, your Source of love and inspiration. Can you imagine a world where every soul would seek their truth from within and live their purpose with no regard from another’s approval? Your purpose has always been to empower souls through prayer and their intuitive gifts. Yet you realized many years ago this purpose could not be sought from the world outside of you. So you ceased from chasing illusions and began honoring the signs your soul was providing you along the way.

It has taken you many years to acknowledge your own gifts lie within your ability to create inspiration through the power of your fingertips. Yet because you had been programmed from a young age to seek your truth from the world outside of you, you perceived the world through one set of lenses. Rather than realizing your blueprint allowed you to create your life story in a unique and colorful manner, you attempted to fit it into a box created by another. Now you understand this blueprint calls not only for your courage to move forward without indication of evidence seen, but calls for your faith to trust the process by which it takes.” – Excerpt from Creating Utopia

Stay the Course – 3 More Days

“Do you now understand that you are already one with the dream you seek? For when you are able to understand this truth on a soul level, you will achieve mastery upon realizing you are not your conditions. At any point in your evolution you will know you can change your thoughts to alter your course. Yet how many souls will travel through the veil of light only wishing they had understood this truth and experienced it on a greater level in their lives? There are so many souls my child who are experience the broken dreams of their lives and placing the burden on their lack of worthiness? They have convinced themselves they are the experience they failed to accomplish, so they associate themselves as failure.

When you awaken to the truth that failure is as much an illusion as is fear, then you will understand the greatness of who you are. Yet rather than dismiss the emotions and thoughts of failure, so many souls choose to identify with those emotions of fear and disappointment, thus they cannot separate themselves from the feelings. This in turn creates the unity of the emotions of disappointment. The feelings become so overwhelming that it consumes the soul until they cannot separate their own soul from their feelings. Because of this, it becomes more difficult to bear the burden of disappointment and they make a conscious decision not to add to those emotions, so they disconnect from self and thus from their God.

For if you are one with me and create your life through the awareness of me, then you have only fear to create when you are no longer aware of my presence within you. Rather than seek to know yourself through love in the arms of all that is love, you detach from me and live your life in fear. I have called many to awaken the hearts of those who still seek to know self through their Creator. Some will awaken and answer the call while others will remain in their fear based trance. What will you do my child, when it is time to answer the call to awaken the souls in the world around you one person at a time? Will you cease to know self because you feel not worthy enough, or will you answer my call?” – Excerpt from Creating Utopia

What Will You Contribute?- 4 More Days!

“Understanding the beauty of creation is more about the experience of creating love than it is about possessing something of value, what do you desire to give of yourself for the equal exchange of that value? For if you desire to know yourself in the truest sense of love, then your soul craves the knowing of creating love in exchange for love. Consider this an equal exchange of energy my child. As you cannot create fear from love energy, so you cannot create love from an energy of fear. Anything you wish to experience in the form of love must first be made manifest from love.

Yet so often a soul will look into the world outside of self, and seek to experience love from the creation of another’s energy. These energy vampires believe it is their right to claim something of love created by another soul, and wonder why they receive it not. Furthermore, these same souls will dare create from an energy of lack which produces fear, and not receive that which they feel entitled to have from another. Rather than seeking to understand the truth of their own creation, they blame it on my will that they are not worthy of receiving what they desired. Not understanding they received exactly what they created, even though it may not have correlated with what they desired.

In order to know you are creating something you desire to experience from the energy of love, then you must be in the creative process and giving something of love from within you. For instance, if you desire to create your grandest vision as an artist and wish to enter an art competition, you must create your masterpiece from such a place of love that the outcome of your art will evoke a sense of love… from you. Once you experience the love in which you have created, it becomes not important as to whether or not you win the coveted prize from another. The soul’s expression of creating from love was ultimately experienced by you, and it matters not that another failed to acknowledge it because you the creator felt the emotion you sent forth.” – Excerpt from Creating Utopia

Joy is Not a Destination – 5 More Days!

“The love and joy you seek through the creation of your soul need not be separated through the illusion of time, space, or other souls. For that which you have created and that which I have chosen for you are already done… they are complete. Your role as a co-creator in your journey through life is to realize nothing will separate you from those gifts I have created with you, except through your perception of separateness. The moment you place your joy on a future time is when you are convincing yourself of an illusion, that you will never claim that which you desire to experience in your life. For time does not exist. So telling yourself you will be joyous “later” or have the experience of love through something you desire at another time, only tells your self that you grant yourself not the permission to receive that which has already been created for you.

Time is not the culprit rather the excuse as to why you chose not to receive that which was created for you. Realize you have the power to create in an instant, so how can time be measured as a tool to separate yourself from God rather than a moment in which to connect and create love. Listen to how you speak of that dream you desire to see manifested. Take notice of the excuses you have created to believe an illusion that you are separate from that dream. Do you use time to keep yourself from claiming that which is rightfully yours?

In your particular dream my child you have only to claim that which you desire by speaking so clearly of its existence in your life, that the illusion of separateness is replaced with the reality of oneness. For in your quest to create your grandest vision, you realized the darkness within your soul needed to be replaced with the light of truth. Of my truth.” – Excerpt from Creating Utopia

The Lottery Illusion – 6 More Days!

“The greatest illusion is that you must seek your abundance of all you desire outside of yourself. All you ever need to create the experiences you seek in joy can be obtained by tapping into the Source of all there is within you. Yet rather than take the time to understand who you are and what you are capable of, many of you would rather spend that time convincing another of your own illusion. How many of you enter into drawings or sweepstakes only to spend your thought and energy convincing another soul the ultimate prize is yours to claim? Do you not understand the soul who has already created the experience you see manifested in the physical world is the only soul who can claim that which is theirs? Somehow you convince yourself the illusion that you have the right to inherit another soul’s dream once you see it manifested before you. I tell you this. No soul can claim the lottery of life unless the soul who has created it releases it to another.

When you realize you had not the right to claim that which another created, you blame your God for not finding you worthy enough. The truth is my child, you found yourself not worthy enough. Otherwise you would have been the soul to create this and touched your heart upon every detail in the creative process. Rather than looking at this prize as a goal to own, you would have recognized it from your soul that it was seeking you as well. There is a recognition when you realize a dream fulfilled, that the dreamer and the dream are in fact one and the same. There is no separation of one from another but through the experience of creation and receiving. Do you understand this my child? For when you know from the truth of who you are as one with your Creator, you will understand that dream which you seek is seeking you as well.

Honor your creative gifts and cease from living in an illusion that you must seek something outside of yourself in order to be complete. I am one with you and am experiencing all that I am through the expression of you. Align yourself with truth and know you have all you need through the power of God to experience what the world would consider a miracle. Rather than seeking to duplicate another’s expression of self, choose to be authentic and create your own. Because one or many souls seek to create one way of creating abundance does not mean you must mimic their course. It merely reminds you that through free will, you can create a course of your own which is filled with magical moments between you and your God.” – Excerpt from Creating Utopia

Being One With Your Destiny – 7 More Days!

“Yet when it comes to building a relationship with that very thing you desire to experience in your life, you ask in prayer and then assume you have no further role in developing a connection with that dream. How do you manage to separate something such as a prize in a contest as pure luck and seek not to separate yourself from people or relationships you desire to experience? Do you not realize although the experience you wish to have is different, the creation of that relationship is one and the same? You can no more walk away from connecting with something of value to you, than you can walk away from a relationship with another soul you desire to experience. In both situations you must be fully present mind, body, and soul.

Yet what so many of you fail to realize is that the relationship with another is more difficult to establish than the relationship with self. For you cannot control what another thinks, feels, or how they act. However, you can control what you think, feel, and how you act. Why then do so many souls seek to experience winning money, houses, and fame and seek not to create the experience of having a relationship with these things when the world is not watching them? For out of contests of any kind come attention from the souls watching the experience unfold, and these souls either celebrate or condemn that which they so often fail to understand.

Would there be fewer people taking a stage if the world outside of them failed to applaud their talents and performance skill? Would more young women walk on the pageant stage if they sought not to be uplifted by another? How many more men and women would honor their calling if it mattered not to them whether or not the world outside of them validated their talents? What if you chose to harness that very thing you love and worry not about the glory from others, but honored yourself through the glory of God? Would you feel worthy enough to create that experience? More importantly, would you create the experience for yourself without the outside world honoring you in the process?” – Excerpt from Creating Utopia
