Interesting article about how people underestimate themselves. Life's regrets are definitely more around the chances you did not take than the chances you DID take.
According to the article, we think we are less creative than we are - which limits us from trying to come up with innovative ideas and potentially new products or more. Also, we assume people will say no to us more than they really will - so we do not ask to promote our new business or we do not ask our manager for a raise, etc. We put ourselves into these boxes meanwhile there is a whole world out there, if we can only be brave. So, go for it. Try something new today - a new idea or to ask for something you normally would not ask for in your career and let me know how it goes.
Do you agree with these findings? Do you think you are creative and persuasive? Do you think it is important to career success to have those characteristics? Happy Hunting!
