No one likes a bragger. At the same time, minimizing our success is preventing others from sharing in our success.
There is a time and a place to toot our own horn.
The key is to share it with those that support us, don’t feel threatened by us and are genuinely happy when we are successful.
If we are authentic and unpretentious, we have a greater chance for our message to be well received. When we emphasize the hard work that was put into achieving our success, others respect us more.
Let us speak of our success with gratitude and thank those that provide us with opportunities today.
