Every time I interview a 40-something woman for 40:20 Vision I ask them what 3 “gifts” would they give a 20-something if they were a “Forty-Godmother”. Here are one woman’s gifts:
Don’t set out to prove something to someone else…prove it to yourself and you will earn the respect of others.
Believe in yourself. That is huge. You have to believe that failure is not an option. If you are insecure, I mean we all have our little insecurities, but if you are genuinely insecure and timid, it’s going to come out in your job performance. Don’t let insecurities stop you, free them to make you work harder.
Before you put your feet on the ground in the morning, tell yourself 10 great things about yourself. They could be the silliest things or important. You do it every day and it becomes habit and you believe it. You will wake up with a smile on your face. It’s just a great way to begin the day.
