Be Confident

I am the type of person who will do lots of “homework” when I know I need to, but I still get a bit awkward and nervous. Now I start to realise the untrue and unnecessary impression we give to people. People may doubt our capabilities if we don’t show confidence. Especially when we are helping them with their problems. Imagine if your doctor seems to hesitate or not be sure when they talk to you; you will doubt internally.

As a young woman, I am friendly. I should be more confident about what I stand for. We are establishing our personal and professional styles. Sometimes, just being you is ok.

There still are some other tips.
– Rehearsal before important events.
– Tell yourself, you know what you doing.
– Even if you made a mistake, learn from it.
– Don’t over think it. If you think you are doing a good job, you are!

Sometimes, I am jealous about guys who seem confident about what they say and what they do. Actually, we can be one of them! Don’t underestimate your capability! You need to be comfortable and supportive to yourself before anyone else. You know you can do it! 🙂

Embrace the fear

I have accepted a senior position recently. It’s very exciting. However, I am very nervous.

I assume it is common among young women who are on the way up the corporate ladder. We are just not confident enough. We don’t doubt our capabilities but we are concerned about what other people think. It is almost like we need someone to hold our hands, pat our heads and say you will be fine.

I think we should learn how to be confident without consulting unnecessary support. It is ok to step up within our capacity. It is ok to say to yourself that you are ready, because we know we ARE! We don’t have to receive everyone’s acknowledgement before we reach out. Sometimes, just take it as a ride and you know you will survive!

But, always appreciate the support along the way from family and friends. You know you won’t make it without them.
