One can easily attract eye-balls while bragging by following some guidelines. First of all keep the word “I” out of context. Because using the word “I” in every sentence labels you as arrogant, self-centred and self-absorbed. But, it isn’t possible to talk about oneself without using the word “I”. So it must be taken care that “I” must be toned down in terms of self reference.
Consider using phrases such as:
“my skill set is”
“my ability to do this can be demonstrated by”
Secondly look forward to acknowledge compliments given by people but do not try to return the compliment immediately as it soundless sincere.
Be dauntless to recognise your own achievements. A thumb rule is only to brag about something which you would compliment someone else on. That way, you are sure to be less self-centred..
So, blow your triumph blissfully.
