Give a Damn- Present Yourself!

Even though we’d like to live around the notion of ”I don’t give a damn what other people think of me”, but the truth is that sometimes you should give a damn. And here’s why.

In your life, no matter if it’s your personal life, your career, or other social activities, you will most likely need other people to get to from point A to point B. It’s extremely important to know how you want to come across to other people, and what kind of perception you give out to the world. And remember, bad reputation carries like fire.

Following are few simple tips to better carry and present yourself:

  • Never pretend to be something you aren’t
  • Never use profanity
  • Don’t gossip
  • Listen twice as often as you talk
  • Be on time
  • Be honest, always
  • Be polite- use ”Thank you”, ”Excuse me”, ”Sorry” and ”Please”
  • Show your personality and uniqueness
  • Smile
  • Never compromise your values
  • Dress appropriately, neat and clean
  • Be a resource for others
  • Own your mistakes
Even though these rules are simple ones, it seems that our society easily forgets them. Present yourself with dignity and that will get you far. Promise.

  1. Wonderful post, Jaana. Perhaps, in a perfect world, people wouldn’t judge others based on first impressions or what they see, but we’re not in that perfect world and people do that because it’s a human thing. So pay attention. If you’re not getting the results you want, change what you do. If you catch yourself saying ”They should …” or ”The shouldn’t …” about someone’s reaction to you, re-examine what yourself and your behavior.

      Great point! It’s extremely hard to change other people’s behavior (and honestly, I think it’s a waste of time) but we can easily change ours and monitor our own behavior to better our environments and results. Thank you for the comment, extremely valuable!
