Do not let simple fear stop you from pursuing your goals. That is the takeaway from a blog post by Joel Garfinkle. He says to surface your fears by creating a two-column table. List your fears in one column, and transform them into positive statements in the other. Be prepared for meetings by writing down your key points in advance and asking for feedback from a colleague.

You want clients and top executives alike to perceive you as powerful. If you seem powerful, you are powerful.
