How to stop second-guessing and working too hard to prove yourself
“My last manager constantly criticized me. Now, even in a new role with a new manager, I still second-guess myself and try hard to avoid mistakes,” Mara told me.
I’ve heard that too many times.
When a leader criticizes you or makes subtle digs at you, it can be really challenging to stay strong. A little voice inside your head starts asking things like, “Am I do this right? Is my work good enough? What else do I need to do to prove myself?”
When you doubt or second-guess yourself regularly, that makes it harder for you to shine at work. Especially if you want to boost your reputation & attain greater responsibility,
What if you had a way to stay present, powerful, and able to roll with the punches in every moment? Even when it’s a manager putting you down?
One way: Write down any negative input you get. Then write something positive about yourself. This trains you to generate a more a balanced outlook.
