Someone once asked me; “what do you have to give?” Most times we approach ‘the table’ as we often call it having a list of all we want. We know exactly what we want from our anticipated job, from a potential partner and even more simplistic what we hope to gain from tomorrow’s experiences. But what are you bringing into your tomorrow? what are you taking to the table? What gives you bargaining power?
3 tips for the table:
- Be Realistically Optimistic – approach every situation expecting the very best given the circumstances. The outcome can usually go either of two ways; expect unfavourable responses but plan for the best. And always be polite.
- Be Honest with Self – know your strengths but also your weaknesses, share what you believe to be your biggest weakness and how you have been addressing it. Don’t hide your flaws and be confident in your strengths.
- Be Fair – don’t ask for more than you are giving or are willing to give.
Keep smiling no matter what! 😀😃😊☺️😄
A smile will brighten your days and the days of others.
And don’t just give because you expect something in return.
