The Secrets to Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

For the longest time, I didn’t know that it had a specific term attached to it but I certainly knew that there was something more to it. If you find it difficult to appreciate your achievements no matter how minute. If you consistently find it difficult to accept praise or believe that you are good enough.

If you find it difficult to internalize that you are good enough or fail to appreciate your effort, but rather choose to measure your success with that of others or compare your ‘success’ to that of another, then it could be that you are suffering from Imposter Syndrome.

The Workaholic Series (Jane’s Career Evolves): Are you Currently Practicing what you didn’t Study in School?!

Her career path was set as long as she was concerned and she will thread on this adventurous thrilling journey. It was in the year 2001 that Jane got admitted into one of the country’s arguably best university.

As many Christian families will do, her parents called her aside for a family prayer when the day eventually came for her to leave for school. She was going to reside in the hostel, so as every caring parent would react, they were a bit worried.

“Remember the child of whom you are.” her mother said, before a prayer that seemed to last forever.

Making Career Decisions as an Immigrant (Life as an Immigrant in the Workplace)

I receive a number of emails from readers frequently related to life as an immigrant in the workplace. It’s really humbling to know that many of you find me worthy enough to share your stories with. What triggered my blogging journey was the need to have space where I could share challenges I was going through as a young person in the workforce.

I had always felt lost in the workplace for a long time and after deciding to pursue a career in HR, I thought it’ll be great to possibly share my discoveries and how I’ve learned to overcome several workplace challenges, as well as share HR tips I had come to learn.

I’m still finding my grounding in this thing called work-life. Every day is another opportunity to try a new experiment on me as the ‘lab rat’.

Adriel: IT Specialist, Health & Fitness Enthusiast

Fitness is really important and not only for workers. For a long time, I’ve always admired people who strive to improve their health and fitness lifestyle. I’ll be sincere that I’ve been hard on myself for a while. I ask myself if they have more than the same number of hours in a day to be productive and make a conscious decision to live a healthy lifestyle.

Some weeks ago, I decided to feel inspired and went ahead to interview two wonderful people on their healthy life choices. The first was Adriel Gavazza and you’ll learn more about him in this post.

Giveaway: I Partnered with JORD Wood Watches!!

A few weeks ago, I logged into my customer account and checked my pending orders; the wristwatch, which I had ordered four weeks back, was yet to arrive. For a minute, I panicked. Now, this is a true story!

Prior to that, I had never had any reasons whatsoever to request a refund or start a dispute, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. For privacy reasons, I’ll withhold the name of this international company. Also, I’ve had quite a lot of positive shopping experiences with this company, so no hard feelings.

For a while, I’ve been looking to start this segment on the blog. I’m so excited to share with you: The Workaholic Series. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I’ve enjoyed creating and planning this segment.

On what to expect, you’ll have the opportunity to read relatable stories on the life of workers. There’ll be hilarious stories, serious ones and from time to time you can expect one or two jokes.

This segment will have more of story telling depicting reality in a bid to juxtapose life in diverse settings. Please bear in mind that most of these stories will be fictitious. Where otherwise, I’ll be glad to state so.

I’ve always wanted to do this and I’m so excited to get the ball rolling. I hope you enjoy!

Learn How Millions of People Negotiate at Work

When many people hear ‘negotiation’, they think a pay increase, but it shouldn’t be. Is a salary increase the only thing that can be negotiable in the workplace? From my experience, it isn’t. I’ve been able to negotiate other things from time to time.

If everyone shared the same belief and thought like we did, life might have been somewhat easier to navigate. Reality check— that’s not so! Learning the art of negotiation is the only way out.

At work, you’ll encounter various types of people with diverse personalities. It becomes imminent that negotiating your way around things and reaching a compromise mutually benefiting to both parties is the proper way to handle affairs in the workplace.

Some people are not aware of this and believe that everything should go their own way, but since you are a member of the Zinny Factor community, I’ll be sharing a few ways I’ve learned to incorporate the art of negotiation.
