Want to have more confidence at work? Suffering from impostor syndrome?
If you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re constantly checking to see that your pencil skirt isn’t hoiked into the back of your underwear, and you think everybody’s staring at you, wondering how security let you in the door… these may help!
Make others feel at ease:
Smile, for everyone lacks self-confidence and more than any other one thing a smile reassures them. – Andre Maurois
Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful. – Mark Victor Hansen
You’re better than you think:
If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself. You are better than you think. – T. Harv Eker
Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. – Christopher Robin
When you’re different:
When you’re different, sometimes you don’t see the millions of people who accept you for what you are. All you notice is the person who doesn’t. – Jodi Picoult
They’re not looking at you:
You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realised how seldom they do. – Eleanor Roosevelt
Don’t fear it:
Confidence comes not from always being right but from not fearing to be wrong. – Peter T. Mcintyre
