A phrase that has been floating around my house for the last few months is so profound:
Self-control leads to self-confidence.
I’m not sure where my wife picked it up, but we’ve used it a fair amount.
Who doesn’t struggle with self-confidence issues?
Let me rephrase that:
What job seeker could use more self-confidence?
Here’s a simple formula: have more self-control. Perhaps you will:
What is it you have been neglecting? I know, as a job seeker, we tend to neglect everything that won’t lead to a job offer. But that is so unhealthy on so many levels.
When I wrote Water Damage Is Expensive – Don’t Neglect Your House, I was writing about the results of neglecting things like family and your health.
I didn’t realize at the time that NOT neglecting… that is, having the self-control and discipline to take care of things, would lead to self-confidence.
Again, we all need more self-confidence. I challenge you to practice self-control for a while and see if you have more self-confidence.
