In reality time is what shows people whether you are better. Whether you do what you say you’ll do and when you’ll do it. In the beginning however, people take a guess. The suss us out by what you choose to project through the impression we make.
Just for 5 minutes, take stock of how you want to come across to people and then look in the mirror and be honest with yourself. Do you walk those wishes or is there room for improvement.
Now look at your emails and letters – do they convey your values or are you often rushed for time and not able to really get across the benefits you bring.
In fact look at every aspect of how you look, sound and behave and take steps to make changes where you feel changes are needed.
It’s a worthwhile exercise and could make a huge difference to your success.
