The following is a short book preview with insights about how to believe in yourself contributed by the Ohio State University Leadership Center.
Trust and Betrayal in the Workplace: Building Effective Relationships in Your Organization
Dennis Reina PhD & Michelle Reina PhD, Oakland, CA: Berrett-Koehler Publishers, Inc. (2015)
“You are a unique human being, and there is no one else like you in the world. You have unique gifts, talents, and perspectives that you bring to your relationships with others. You have experience and knowledge that position you to make the world a better place.
Consider all of the roles you play in the work you do and the life you lead. Think about the difference your efforts have made to your networks over the course of a lifetime.
Your belief in yourself can form a steady cadence that drives your movement through this world. It can help you honor yourself: your inner courage, your willingness to take risks and open doors, your ability to be vulnerable and extend forgiveness. It can put up a strong barrier between you and those who would ask you to compromise your inner spirit and what you know to be right.
Your belief in yourself can illuminate your way forward when you’re surrounded by uncertainty or confusion. When you believe that you are a naturally caring person, that you want to do the right thing, and that you are on a search to become the best version of yourself (p. 186-188).”
