Something that comes up often in coaching.
Ultimately you are responsible for the way you show up at work.
While there are many things that can impact your ability to be confident and an expert, many of those are in your court.
We've seen clients go from impostor syndrome to being VPs just by changing mindsets.
I see so many people who negotiate against themselves, that say things are not possible for them, when no one else is saying that.
I know it's not always easy, but that's not the point. Hard work never is.
We have to be our best cheerleaders, we have to find our own strength and value.
No one else gets to decide our value.
But if YOU don't stand up for yourself, no one else will.
I have to do work everyday to make sure I'm taking care of myself. That I can know what my value is.
And if there are days, I don't see it, I do things for self care.
You can also make sure the people you surround yourself with are supportive but the impetus still lies on ourselves to be responsible for our self care and awareness.
We are our own worst enemies.
We are also the best proponents of change for ourselves.
