Low feelings of self-worth and lack of confidence can undermine your potential to find a new job, get a promotion or ask for a salary increase. These limiting beliefs and negative mindsets often find their roots in old wounds and scars that haven’t fully healed or from negative experiences at a current or former job.
Perhaps you were laid off, or let go of for reasons you don’t fully understand? Or worse, you were harassed, discriminated against or experienced workplace conflict beyond your control?
It could take months or even years to recover from these kinds of negative experiences and as a result, you might find that you talk uncomfortably about while networking, or that you fumble in a job interview, feeling even more vulnerable and exposed to criticism and judgement.
If this has happened to you, it’s important to do the work to heal from the experience and regain your confidence.
