How to be successful, despite yourself

How to be successful, despite yourself

This is a free book from BookBoon.

With its quirky title taken from what one of the mentors on The Voice Australia 2013 said to his mentee, this is an easy to read guide to overcoming the fear of ‘putting yourself out there’ to achieve your career goals. Sometimes due to anxiety or lack of confidence we get in our own way. We hesitate to be at the right place at the right time and this becomes a barrier to getting what we really want. With easy to do activities, relevant case studies, a tip summary at the end of each chapter and an action planner, you can become more proactive in moving ahead. This book will help you overcome various difficulties you may experience in taking the first steps to start the journey towards success in your chosen career direction.
