You Deserve More
As girls, we are taught to be compliant, to colour inside the lines, and to think about others first. This often leads to women who feel they are not deserving, that they aren’t enough and that they cannot ask for the things they want, need and deserve. Research shows that women expect to be paid less for the same work as men do and other studies show that our sense of control of our destiny, our “sense of agency”, is – on average – a lot lower than it is 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, 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.
What is more, you would retire resenting the fact that you haven’t achieved all the things you wanted to achieve, simply because you didn’t dare to claim those goals. Or you would, like Mark Twain said “go to your grave with your purpose still inside of you.”
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.
And that part of you knows that playing small and staying silent and stagnant will not give you the life and career you deserve. And that part also knows that you ARE capable of making the bold decision to claim it. And you would be right: you absolutely CAN decide you deserve everything you have worked so hard for. And you so, so deserve it!
