When was the last time you unabashedly said, “Yep, this is my thing. Stand aside, I am really good at this”? It could have been anything—opening a jar, giving a speech, calming a crying baby.
We shy away from letting people know what we’re good at because it feels like bragging, and nobody wants to be that guy. (Well, most people don’t.) But it’s also possible that this modesty is hampering you, keeping you from grabbing opportunities and connecting with folks who want what you have to offer.
If it didn’t feel like bragging, how would you finish this sentence: “I am absolutely terrific at: _______________________”? Is there someone you could say this to?
