Successful people appear to have confidence in spades. Some seem to be born with it; others have to work at it; but we all want it. This year, why not set a goal to become the person you’ve always wanted to be? Here are five ways to get you started on the path to having more confidence:
Give credit to your strengths.When you have success, write it down, tell a friend or reward yourself. This doesn’t mean you need to broadcast it to everyone, but giving yourself credit where credit is due will go a long way to boosting self-esteem. Apply these strengths in the workplace and in your relationships.

Making a good impression is not a one-time effort. It’s a series of large and small decisions that over time form a picture of who you really are. It’s about what you do over weeks, months and years. It’s how you act when you think no one is noticing. It’s about how you treat others that you work with. When a colleague received the promotion you wanted, did you graciously congratulate them or did you avoid them? Do you treat the office secretary and intern like you would like to be treated?
