Words from the Wise: 001 – Zig Ziglar

 In 25th Anniversary, Articles, Careers, Words from the Wise

What does Zig Ziglar say about “Self Belief” and what are the implications for our careers?  This is a series of posts that uses a quotation by a famous person from history to make a point about career management.  Take a moment to reflect and see whether you can start using this wisdom as you continue to manage your career.

Zig Ziglar said:

“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.”

Proteus Career Management says:

“When it comes to the interview, you are the only person who will benefit from your ability as an interviewee.”

The lesson?

“Believe in yourself.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

Job seekers everywhere should heed the message behind Zig Ziglar’s thoughtful message.  Your friend or your partner can’t be the interviewee in your stead, but if you have a mentor they can certainly help you to believe in yourself so that you are in top interviewee form when you need to be.

By the way, if you do not have a mentor it would undoubtedly be a good idea to engage one.  Your mentor will not be able to get rid of all the challenges you may be facing, but they will no doubt be able to show you, perhaps from their own example, how best to face them.

If you really want to boost your self confidence try these two little tricks – stop comparing your weaknesses to other people’s strengths and stop taking your strengths for granted.
