Many people do not take the credit or shout about what a great service, experience or what difference they may have made to a person’s life.
We are all guilty of this and we really need to accept the recognition of this and ‘Blow our own trumpet’ and be proud of our many achievements; this can be metaphorically speaking, or in the case of one of my clients who has a visual, literal anchor from which he can now blow his own trumpet!
My client wrote, ‘Tracy went one step beyond just encouraging and believing in me: she sent me an actual trumpet! To say it made me smile is an understatement. Within our recent call, one action that came up was basically about confidence within ourselves and this can be defined as ‘Blowing [our] own trumpet’. I’ve now placed it on the top of my cabinet, so whenever I am looking at seizing opportunities. I will now use this as a prompt to ensure that I remember to take credit and recognition for my hard work. We all go on a journey when we are in business, but my biggest journey has been the building of confidence within myself, so I will carry on ‘Blowing my trumpet!’
I hope you, like my client can take the time to blow your own trumpet! Take the time to reflect and recognise your achievements… you too can seize every opportunity!
