How to develop personal impact through self-expression?

You wish to prove your personal worth. That’s one of the basic impulses of human nature. You try but you fail to succeed. Others do not recognize your qualities. You can’t advance in your career. You know you have the ability and capacity to perform more complex things that what you are doing at the moment. Instead of progressing, you observe your peers in their prestigious workplaces or people who were moody and quiet when they were younger but now they’re charming and successful,

Will you really fight without ever tasting the power of success? Will you work without moving forward? Will you go to work year after year accepting that it won’t get better? Will you end each year being materially, socially, spiritually poorer or more insecure? You might be angry and envious of those who advance in their career or you might be angry at yourself for your inability to move forward.

Start developing a personal impact in your work environment through self-expression!

We all want to advance our career. In order to move forward, we need to work on ourselves and the way we behave. What do we need to do in order to become better and more constructive? How to build a bridge that leads to trust? How to create a balance between respecting other people’s rights and the responsibilities we have towards each other but with mutual respect.

That’s easier said than done of course because, in our everyday work environment, we meet aggressive people. We see the envy of other people’s success and hatred if one is better than us at something. Perhaps you have experienced such a situation?

Don’t let yourself hate someone because of their success. Negative emotions will devastate you. Let other people’s success inspire you instead and give you the strength to make a progress yourself.

What do you need to do?

  1. Establish a harmonious relationship with your business conversational partners

Before you start a conversation with your conversational partners, you must sort out your ideas, thoughts, and feelings. It is important to clearly define the message you wish to share with the other speaker. In your tendencies to create the conditions for self-expression, you need to be certain that your thoughts, feelings, and ideas are justified. It is only then that you will leave a positive impression on your conversational partner.

Why is that the case?

Because your conversational partner will momentarily realize that you are not being honest. You are dressed up, polite, and smiling but your smile is loud and violent. You speak but your speech is loud and violent. Your gestures are not calm. Perhaps you need a big amount of alcohol or cigarettes in order to remain calm when having a conversation which leads to the impression that you are insecure. You frequently interrupt the speaker with your comments, which indicates you have a big ego or inferiority complex. Your nerves and your muscles are in disharmony. You know that you can do a certain job well but you are afraid. Your conversational partner knows it because instead of reasonable and responsible behavior, you showed an obsequious attitude as a consequence of fear of not getting hired.

Therefore, affirm that you want. It is crucial to be honest to yourself. Be open to accepting any kind of answer. Your strength and power lie in being honest towards yourself, your thoughts, ideas, and in building pleasant feelings in regards to your personal goal and your conversational partner. Remember, negative feelings can be a great enemy on the road to building your career. They can live inside of you and cause frustrations, making you miserable and disrupting your career advancement if you allow it.

  1. Make your conversational partners sensible and receptive in regards to your goal

Improve your self-expression by making your conversational partner receptive. Build the receptiveness-willingness to receive and understand-that wasn’t previously there. It is you who must create it. Ask yourself:” Will my conversational partner have a positive or negative reaction to my speech?” Beware of enemies such as “gossip”, “humiliation” or “sarcasm”. Those in high positions perceive such people as unfit partners.

Remember that the secret of successful self-expression lies in:

  • Your skillfulness and your resourcefulness in various business situations;
  • Your ability to immediately organize everything you come across;
  • Evoking positive thinking and mood in others.
  1. Make yourself sensible to your colleagues’ and your business partners’ thoughts and feelings

Increase your ability to sense other people’s thinking process in your work environment. In order to make progress in your career, it is important to develop the ability to comprehend other people’s thoughts and feelings without imposing some difficult, heavy ideas regarding what they are supposed to do and how to do it. Whether you’re involved in teamwork, dealing with clients or you are a leader, always be open to the needs, desires, interests, ideas, and creativity of others. Make yourself sensible to other people’s thoughts and ideas in your work environment.

Your opinion, ideas, and attitude can certainly differ from others. That is what usually happens. But you can make the decision when talking to your coworkers to present your attitude and opinion about a certain task which requires an adequate solution in order to increase profitability, for example.

What to do in such a situation?

You should never raise your voice when trying to persuade your conversational partner that your opinion is better when it comes to completing a task that he voluntarily does by using direct arguments. In that case, your conversational partner will have a strong need to defend his willingness which can lead to negative consequences. If you believe your solution will contribute to more profitable ways of completing a specific work task, you should resort to rational arguments to influence your conversational partner to develop the process of self-guidance and, as a result, willingly change his opinion about what he is doing.

How will you succeed in that?

Try to inspire your conversational partner to change a certain decision by giving your opinion through certain examples. Try to express your opinion clearly, honestly, and directly as well as diplomatically with regards to your conversational partner’s needs and feelings. If you are involved in teamwork, present reasonable arguments which will give you an advantage over others and justify your sincere interest in an adequate completion of a task. Build a positive formulation when it comes to understanding others by being good listeners without trying to dominate, manipulate, humiliate or degrade others. When presenting your arguments, it is important to respect the thoughts, interests, and attitudes of your coworkers and business partners. Maintain your self-esteem but as well as your respect of others even though their attitudes and opinions might differ from yours.

The journey towards your personal prosperity implies, among other things, your personal influence through self-expression. In the process of self-expression, tend to be positively interested in your colleagues and business partners, with affection, understanding, and benevolent compassion. Respect your feelings and the needs of others. When communicating with your business partners, use reasonable arguments with a convincing and honest interest in improving business efficiency. Show your respect for others by denouncing violence. Let abuse and manipulation never be an option. Having good relationships with people is worthwhile. You cannot build your career on lies and hypocrisy. Longterm discomfort caused by underestimating others will make people in your work environment to avoid you. Build positive formulations of compassion for other people’s problems instead. As you become interested in other people, they will become interested in you, and that will be your reward. You have opened the door of the business world.
