Stand Out Author Connie Podesta Reveals 3-Steps to Out-Perform the Competition

After coaching, counseling, interviewing and speaking to hundreds of thousands of people in all industries, it's become clear to Connie Podesta, author of "10 Ways to Stand Out from the Crowd," that three areas demand full focus and attention to ensure success in the business world: Strengths, skills, and self-improvement.

Dallas, TX, September 02, 2011 (Straight Line PR) -- Success really is as easy as 1-2-3, says award-winning author Connie Podesta. First, we must leverage our strengths whenever and wherever possible. Second, take every opportunity to develop the skills necessary to reach our goals. And third, commit to a plan for self-improvement so we can overcome any limitations that stand in the way of achieving the results we want.

"Success is not just about focusing on your strengths while failing to commit to self-development and continuous growth," says Podesta in her new book "10 Ways to Stand Out from the Crowd" ( ). "Success is about stretching yourself beyond your limits and developing new strengths from existing shortcomings."

Here's the shortlist on how to do just that:

Leverage Your Strengths: This is one of the smartest decisions a person can ever make. Strengths are the things we were born to do. The things we love to do. Using them naturally enhances our mood and builds confidence. Surprisingly, though, many people can't pinpoint their strengths. So dive in right now with pen, paper, or word processor. List every last strength inside, keeping in mind that successful people know exactly what strengths they can pull from at a moment's notice.

Develop Strong Skills: This is all about supporting and complementing our strengths, says Podesta (more STAND OUT STRATEGIES can be found at ). Few strengths can stand on their own without great skills to back them up.

The difference between strengths and skills is that skills don't always come easily. Think of the things we rocked growing up (strengths) and the things we later picked up in school (skills). So identify, learn, practice, and stay up-to-date with skills in order to turn a mediocre strength into a major contender and virtual powerhouse of talent.

Commit to a Plan for Self-Improvement: Once we have our power of strengths and skills, we need a source for that power. Begin a plan for self-improvement, where we look for our limitations instead of our strengths. As Podesta advises, "The most powerful strength you can have is truly knowing yourself." Our limitations do not have to define us. They are simply our personal set of unique challenges. So start aiming to turn limitations into "abilities" instead of "liabilities."

One. Two. Three.


"These are the tools you need to begin to create the successful future you desire," says Podesta. "Add a sense of purpose and the incentive to be the best you can be... and you can't help but stand out from the crowd." Her YouTube video, "Motivational Speaker Connie Podesta on Your Strengths" can be found at
