Be Willing to Ask for Credit

We often want credit for our accomplishments, but are afraid to ask for it. This can be particularly true in our jobs, but is definitely not limited to work. Asking for credit isn't a bad thing. It doesn't mean walking around bragging, or acting like an "attention whore".

We need to be willing to ask for compliments that support our self- confidence.

Some ways to ask for credit may be:

  • E-mailing your boss a weekly update on what you've accomplished that week.
  • Sharing your good news with supportive friends.
  • Calling a friend or mentor and asking them to remind you of your positive qualities and/or accomplishments.
