Many times a healthy level of assertiveness can go a long way in showing people what I'm made of.

Many times a healthy level of assertiveness can go a long way in showing people what I'm made of. Last year I was in an meeting where I didn't get what I needed, and later I asked a veteran collegue what happened. After some hesitation until the collegue recognized that I was totally serious, he told me that I lacked confidence and that while I knew my product, I missed points in delivery and presentation. I have been working on my verbal communications since then. I picked up an exercise program. Two months ago I found SparksPeople and got off soda and put stretching into my goals. Last week I found Flylady.com to help me with some routines and orgainziation. Now I'm starting a new year, and will soon be in an updated meeting of last years. My weight won't be down, but I will be toner, walk more confidently, and have shared my doubts and frustrations with buddies, so that I don't have to take them into the meeting with me.
