Those who underestimate themselves, doubt themselves and are insecure will never develop their full potential. You almost go with them through life with the handbrake on and misses a lot of opportunities – both in professional life and in relationships. You can find out here if you are one of those people who do not reach their full potential and keep themselves small.

1. You stay in your comfort zone

When was the last time you dared to do something new? Accepted a new challenge even though it felt way too big? If the answer is “It’s been a long time” or “I don’t know”, then that suggests: self-underestimation over there. Self-confident people like to seize new opportunities because they like to prove their skills. Only those who dare to try new things can develop further and develop their full potential.

2. You question praise from others

You find it very difficult to accept positive feedback and praise. When someone compliments you, you immediately look them up apologieswhy you didn’t deserve it Instead of enjoying the praise, focus on your weaknesses and failures.

3. You rarely take the initiative

People who underestimate themselves don’t want to be a burden to others. This goes hand in hand with the fact that those affected rarely do anything alone. Ask it again in the meeting because you didn’t understand something? Never! Asking for a salary increase? Unimaginable!

4. Your needs don’t come first

You are always afraid of being a burden to others. To avoid that, always put your needs aside. You find it very difficult to demand or stand up for your wishes – both in a professional context and in partnerships.

Do most of the signs apply to you? Then it is high time that you self-assessment work! This is very important for a healthy self-image. Those who constantly keep themselves small will only end up hurting themselves. You are certainly full of hidden talents and you just don’t know it! If you find it difficult to work on yourself on your own, seek support from close friends. You will be amazed how much they think of you! Most of the time we don’t recognize our own worth, while others think much more of us than we realize.
