Limiting Beliefs 

Limiting Belief #1: “I’m just not comfortable promoting myself.”

For a variety of reasons, some people are incredibly uncomfortable speaking up about their accomplishments. The key is to use tactics and behaviors that are effective and, at the same time, will maintain a sense of integrity and authenticity.

Limiting Belief #2: “I don’t want to brag.”

Shift your mental model: Sell yourself as a resource. To develop strong, effective self-promotional skills, employees need to find a balance between over-the-top, obnoxious bragging and being overly modest — and overlooked

Limiting Belief #3: “Team players don’t take credit.”

Actually, high visibility benefits the team. You need to be skilled at communicating the value of the work and the talent of the people in the team. 

Limiting Belief #4: “Accomplishments speak for themselves.”

The truth is, a lot of good work falls under the radar. Often people believe they shouldn’t have to self-promote because good work will speak for itself. It’s your job to let people know about your work, why it’s important, and how it benefits others.
