Why is this important? Put simple, it’s often easier for self-confident people to show their qualities and therefore increase their chances of getting a job promotion.
If low self-confidence has been an issue for you, here are some tips that will help you to increase it:
1️⃣ Identify the source: Knowing the reasons why you might feel insecure will allow you to start working at it.
2️⃣ Know your strengths: Most people have the tendency to put more weight on their weaknesses what makes them insecure. Amplify your strengths instead!
3️⃣ Ask for help: If you find it difficult to identify your own strengths, ask your friends and colleagues for support.
4️⃣ Accept your weaknesses: Focus on your strengths and accept that you can’t be great at everything which is OK!
5️⃣ Learn from your mistakes: Every mistake you make is an opportunity for you to grow and get better!
6️⃣ Be open for critique: Even if some colleagues may not be too sensitive about giving feedback you can still use it as another tool for growth.
7️⃣ Share your opinion: If you don’t agree with what’s being said in a meeting, say it.
8️⃣ Use your body language: Straighten up and relax 🧘♂️
9️⃣ Be patient 😊
