Focus on Positive Self-Talk

The things you say to yourself have a significant influence on how you feel and act. When you're consumed with negative thoughts about your performance, your positive attitude will diminish and be replaced by self-doubt. Practice by keeping a journal and as soon as you catch yourself being negative, write down a positive replacement statement. This takes time to get good at and practice makes perfect.

We all know that getting ahead in your career requires many things: industry knowledge and expertise, experience, a proven track record, being liked by your colleagues and customers, having a good reputation and more. But one of the most common things holding back many people from reaching the success they deserve is the fear of failure.

Jacqueline Whitmore, an internationally recognized etiquette expert, author of "Poised for Success: Mastering the Four Qualities that Distinguish Outstanding Professionals," and founder of The Protocol School of Palm Beach, says the fear of failure is more common than we think, but overcoming it is very possible.

In this slideshow, Whitmore has highlighted six tips to help you on your journey.
