Imagine being so confident that you don't even have to say a word to for others to notice your influence. That is exactly the kind of confidence that leads to career opportunities! Quiet confidence speaks louder than those who are verbal about how confident they are in themselves. There is a certain trust that is built through quiet confidence that ensures others that the job will get done. The ability to accomplish tasks without bragging or saying too much, gains the credibility of bosses and colleagues.
There are certain characteristics of someone who possess high levels of quiet self-assurance. These individuals rarely are in a position where over-apologizing is necessary. They are also able to smoothly switch gears without concern and hardly ever need to over-explain or justify their decisions. These individuals are those who others tend to naturally gravitate towards. By focusing on the results more so than the actions necessary to achieve the goal they can produce results.
Believe it or not, you have all that you need to build your confidence. Identify your strengths, spend time improving them to make sure that you are consistent with performing the same unique abilities. Building self-trust is necessary to grow your confidence level. If you are unable to keep the promises you make to others, it is very likely that you are unable to keep the promises that you make to yourself. Set mini goals that are achievable. It’s not about always being polished or professional.
It includes acknowledging and embracing your flaws. Take pride in delivering the highest expectation of you.
