Anyone who underestimates himself, doubts himself, and is insecure will never develop his full potential. I was about to go with them Through life with the handbrake And he misses a lot of opportunities – both in career and in relationships. You can tell if you are one of those people who do not develop their full potential and keep their small size.
1. You stay in your comfort zone
When was the last time you dared to do something new? Have you accepted a new challenge, even if it feels too big? If the answer is ‘It’s been a long time’ or ‘I don’t know’, it suggests self-deprecating there. People with high self-confidence like to take advantage of new opportunities because they like to prove their skills. Only those who dare to try new things can develop further and reveal their full potential.
2. You question praise from others
You find it very difficult to accept positive comments and praise. If someone compliments you, look up to them immediately ExcusesWhy you didn’t deserve it Instead of enjoying the praise, you focus on your weaknesses and failures.
3. Rarely take the lead
People who underestimate themselves tend not to want to be a burden to others. This goes hand in hand with the fact that those affected rarely do anything on their own. Ask again in the meeting because you didn’t understand something? Start! Ask for a raise? Unimaginable!
4. Your needs don’t come first
You are always afraid of being a burden to others. To prevent this from happening, always put your needs aside. You find it very difficult to ask for something or defend your desires – whether in a professional context or in partnerships.
Do most of the signs apply to you? Then it’s time for you to self evaluation work! This is extremely important for a healthy self-esteem. Those who always keep themselves young end up hurting themselves in the end, you definitely are full of hidden talents and you didn’t even know it! If you find it difficult to work on your own, seek support from good friends. You’ll be surprised how much they think of you! Most of the time, we don’t realize our own value, while others think of us more than we realize.
