Why is it easier for younger people to put themselves out into the world? Do you find it challenging to claim your strengths? Do you diminish yourself to make others comfortable?
Dr. Tracy Packiam Alloway has enlisted her knowledge and experience as an award-winning psychologist and author of 14 books to tackle these very issues. She discusses how simply changing the words we speak about ourselves can have a powerful effect on how we view ourselves, how to claim your individual strengths (and why doing so will change how you are perceived by others), how we can connect in a meaningful way through social media, and how narcissism can be a positive “My view is that narcissism is very helpful and it can be very hurtful. Like any aspect of personality, there’s extremes on either side. And so people who are narcissistic can take their ideas and make it happen and be a good leader, but there can be a point of too much as well.”
“Show don’t tell. If you want people to see your greatness, don’t tell them “Hey! I’m great”, show them what you’re great at.”
