Often, women would read a lengthy job description and be discouraged from applying once they see they don’t exactly tick all the boxes. They feel defeated and close the vacancy tab. But is this the right thing to do?

BetterMe App helps women achieve their body goals with ease and efficiency by helping to choose proper meal plans and effective workouts.

Start using our app and you will see good results in a short time.

Statistics show that women apply for a position when they are certain they are 100% qualified. For men, this indicator is as low as 60%.

What does that mean? Women are not willing to take risks unless they are sure they’ll fit.

Here are some steps you can take to bring out that risk-taking side in yourself.

#1. Think about the end goal. Know what your vision and ultimate goal is and believe in that. If you are insecure about something, explore those limitation and think about why you aren’t sure of this or that aspect of the plan.

The thing you believe in doesn’t always turn out to be true; belief is a thought you’ve had over and over again.

#2. Set achievable goals. Whenever you’re overwhelmed at a large and multi-layered task, just think about it as a set of separate, smaller, quicker goals. Try planning two weeks ahead instead of months or years. Besides, smaller tasks and shorter time periods are easier to monitor.

#3. See errors and failure as experience. You will fail, at some point. This shouldn’t discourage you from acting and learning. It’s great that women tend to achieve perfection at everything they do, but sometimes, just enough is enough.

#4. Surround yourself with the right kind of people. If you see people in your circle take risks, this will encourage you to act in this way as well. Doing your research, sharing ideas and experience, getting feedback with and from each other and feeling accountable for achieving your goals is the right environment.

#5. See fear as motivator. Chances are, you’ll be afraid and full of self-doubt at certain points in your career. Try looking at this as a driving force and not as a limitation.
