I’ve been chatting with one of my really close friends lately about how she’s just not feeling honored at work. She’s not feeling respected, like she’s getting back what she’s putting into her work.
My answer to her and what I’m going to tell all of you is:
You’ve got to go out there and ask for what you deserve. No one’s going to hand it over on a silver platter.
You have to be your biggest champions.
You have to be your biggest fans.
You need to go out into the world telling people, “This is who I am and this is what I deserve.
Sometimes, that can be really difficult to do.
We want to put in the work and then HOPE that we get our due praise and respect. It would be nice if it worked like that.
Sometimes it does work like that.
Sometimes there are just amazing people in this world who see our greatness. People who see our hard work and treat us accordingly. Unfortunately, a lot of the time we have to be the ones to show people how to treat us. So if you’re not getting the love and the respect that you feel you deserve, put your foot down.
Go out there and ask!
I’ll tell you right now though, if you’re not being heard, maybe it’s time to walk away. Maybe it’s time to go after something greater. That’s all within your power and that’s something you have to decide for yourself.
So whatever it is you have going on in your life right now, take a step back and ask yourself,
“What is it that I need in this moment? What is it that I need from this experience?”
Go out there and ask for what you deserve!
Go out there and get it!
What you deserve isn’t going to be handed to you on a silver platter. It does happen sometimes but
not all the time.
I’m about to head out into my neighborhood and go for a little walk. Because you know what? I needed to step up my self care game, this week. I have been feeling a little low. I haven’t been getting back the same amount of energy that I’ve been putting out into the world, over these last few weeks. I had to take a step back and ask my self “what do I need, right now?” This week, I’ve needed a lot of just chill time. So I’m gonna go out there and get that chill time.
So, figure out what it is you need. Whether it’s from the people around you, from yourself or your environment and go out there and get it.
Go out there and ask for it!
