51. How to Become More Confident at Work and in Life
Play • 59 min

Once during an interview, the head of the panel stopped mid-sentence, smiled and said, “You’re not a shrinking violet are you?” I smiled back and replied, “No, no I’m not.” 

The main reason I got that job was the confidence I exuded. 

Now, a “shrinking violet” is a person who is SHY or MODEST and DOES NOT LIKE TO ATTRACT ATTENTION. 

And guess what? That actually describes my personality to at T. 

My very nature as a quiet and reserved person means I naturally hate putting myself out there, trying new things or doing anything that will take me out of my routine. That’s who I am naturally. 

But I also knew that shrinking violets miss out on great opportunities, so I began to take deliberate steps to change an internal configuration that was clearly hindering me. 

How? That's what I share in this episode.
