Do You Want to be Successful?
Then, get clear on your thoughts around self-promotion.
A few weeks ago, I put up a poll on LinkedIn, and I was pleasantly surprised at the results:
I know I used to (and still sometimes) have a problem with people who were open to sharing their success.
I used to tell myself stories about how they were ‘too much.’
I still procrastinate on sharing my wins, cringing when I am about to click post because I didn’t want people to tell me I am showing off.
How we respond or react to others is usually a reflection of how we think about ourselves.
If I hadn’t gotten more comfortable sharing my wins, I would not have been able to:
- Lead teams and influence others
- Land fantastic opportunities and jobs through LinkedIn
- Network and turn conversations into business without physically meeting clients
- Host over ten #IamRemarkable Sessions for over 100 participants in person and virtually
- Post this blog post
Self-promotion is a crucial skill, especially in this online world we live in.
QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELF
What opportunities have you missed out on because you were not comfortable sharing your wins?
