I Know What You REALLY Deserve

Featured in Community

As girls, we are taught to be compliant, to think about others first and to follow the rules. 

This often means that we grow up feeling like we cannot speak up and ask for the things we need, want and deserve. For example, research shows that women expect to be paid between 3 – 32% less for the same work as men expect to be paid for that same job. 

Other studies show that our sense of control of our destiny, our “sense of agency”, is – on average – a lot lower than it tends to be for men. And that low sense of control may well result in us ending up in positions we don’t enjoy, doing things we’re not made for, or working with people that don’t bring out the best in us. 

We end up stuck in dead-end careers without a vision for a better future for ourselves, because we don’t believe we are deserving or capable of better, of more.

This in turn might mean we retire resenting the fact that we haven’t achieved all the things we wanted to achieve, simply because we didn’t dare to claim those goals. And we would, paraphrasing Mark Twain, “go to our graves with our purpose still inside us.”

And you know what I think? 

I think you KNOW there is more to you and more to life, than who you are and where you are right now… 

That you can give more, do more, be more and have more than you currently do… 

That playing small and staying silent and stagnant will not give you the life and career you deserve….

And that that same part of you also knows that you ARE capable of making the bold decision to claim it. 

And you would be right: you ASBOLUTELY DESERVE TO BENEFIT from everything you have worked so hard for. And it can be yours – truly.
