Break the High-Achiever Cycle

If you’re a high-achiever, it can be difficult to grow professionally. You have a successful image to preserve, so instead of embracing risk, you may lock yourself into a familiar routine. Here are three ways to break that cycle:

  • Use your support network. High achievers are very independent. But, everyone needs help. Ask people around you what skills they think you need to reach the next level.
  • Be vulnerable. Open yourself up to new learning experiences that make you feel uncertain at best and incompetent at worst. Remember that those feelings are temporary and a prelude to greater professional ability.
  • Admit to small failures. Practice acknowledging uncertainty or confessing mistakes with people close to you.
