Take the Time to Blow your Own Trumpet

Take the Time to Blow your Own Trumpet

There are numerous compelling reasons why everyone should seriously look at putting themselves up for awards. On the other hand, there are very few reasons why many don’t. We get it; people have enough work to do without adding on ‘extras’, but nominating yourself or someone else to gain recognition for all that hard work is well worth it. Here’s why. 

Build your Confidence

Confidence breeds confidence. Taking the time to put together an awards submission also gives you time to reflect on what is truly special and unique about your work. Some use it as a chance to reaffirm their goals and refocus their efforts.

Describing what you are most proud of is a good way to get yourself pumped for working even harder into the next phase. People working with you will also feel a boost of pride when they learn of your preparations, and this can positively

People working with you will also feel a boost of pride when they learn of your preparations, and this can positively affect their performance too.

Discover New Horizons

Taking the time to find out about all the awards in your industry will give you a better idea of how you are positioned in your field. Looking at previous winners can give incredible inspiration and how to successfully accomplish lofty goals. It might even put you in touch with mentors you can learn from.

Get Good Press

Putting yourself out into the positive, celebratory sphere of award competitions is one of the best ways to get more public exposure for your company. Whether you win or not, you can gain far-reaching attention, and your name will spread further than it will if you don’t put your hand up at all.

You Just Might Win

Clearly, you have to be in it to win it.

The benefits of simply entering are substantial enough, but the winners (and there will be winners) get even more perks. Positive press and being able to advertise the recognition within your industry will draw more clients to your business, and enable you to build on your success.

It doesn’t come naturally to everyone, but blowing your own trumpet is justified when it comes to declaring the sincere effort put into your career. Nominating yourself for awards is a worthwhile endeavour that can keep spurring your career towards ever greater recognition and success.

Oh, and once you’re nominated, don’t forget to splash that fact across your social media sites. A nomination carries almost as much weight as a win!
