It's great to receive praise and recognition. It boosts our self-esteem and gives us a sense of pride. So why do you shy away when people praise you? You deserve it. Enjoy the limelight.
At the end of the day, we seldom wish that we had worked harder in our workplace. Instead, we usually wish that we had done something out of the ordinary, had a mini adventure, taken an unfamiliar path, or had more laughter and excitement. Today, when you reflect upon your day, use it to plan something different and unusual for tomorrow. Don't spend tomorrow repeating the same old routine. Add some variety - even something small can make a big difference.
If you make promises that you can't keep, people will begin to question your trustworthiness.
