What Are Your Strengths ?

Getting an Outside Viewpoint   
It's a good idea to get an outside viewpoint on what your weaknesses are as your own perceptions may not always marry up to reality. You may strongly believe that your years of experience in a sector reflect your business's thorough grounding and knowledge of all of your customers' needs. Your customers, on the other hand, may perceive this wealth of experience as an old-fashioned approach that shows unwillingness to change and work with new ideas. Be prepared to hear things you may not like, but which, ultimately, may be extremely helpful.
Confidence is a Key Point When it Comes to Your Strength
 Even if you aren’t feeling confident, project the image of how you aspire to be.  Dress appropriately, stand tall, and walk with your shoulders back.  This posture, whether in public or alone, automatically instills confidence in your self-worth and an enhanced image of your value in the business world.  Practice the postures of a confident person and you will be more confident.
Take Action
 Taking steps toward a task or a goal is the ultimate anxiety buster.  Action builds conviction, which your clients will see in your eyes and your demeanour.  Each step along your entrepreneurial path will reveal another step to be taken.  So get into Action!
Record your Achievements
Daily, weekly, monthly, take a few minutes to write down what you’ve achieved.  Big or small achievements, they all count.  Remember that the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time and the analogy to self-development is also true, whether or not you ever eat a real elephant in your entire life.  Any great achievement is merely the sum total of all the step-by-step achievements and learning experiences along the way.
