Fake it till you make it pretty much sums it up. It’s easier said than done, but once you take that first step, the rest come pretty easy. I used to be afraid to speak up at meetings for fear of sounding stupid. My heart would pound very hard at just the thought of speaking up, but eventually I just did it and realized what I had to say wasn’t as bad as I thought (of course you can’t shut me up now!). Another starting point is as simple as your posture. If you go slinking around the office quiet as a mouse with your shoulders slumped, you’re not going to be taken seriously. Stand tall, use good posture and walk like you mean business. And for Pete’s sake remind yourself that you are in your position because you knew what you were doing or you wouldn’t have a job. Quiet the self-doubt as best you can and reflect on the things that you’ve done to contribute to your workplace. I see too many people who don’t realize how valuable they are and don’t have much self-confidence in themselves. Keep a “Job Well Done” folder and look back from time to time to reflect on the good things you’re capable of. If you don’t toot your own horn, nobody else will.
