“I am relationship expert. This is what I do and I demand to be treated like a professional”
I wrote these words on my Facebook wall today. I felt the urge to shout it out because I haven’t always been treated as such. Because I didn’t always believe that this is who I am.
Why did businesses try to hire me without providing payment or for little wages?
Because I didn’t think I deserved more.
Why didn’t I complete my relationship workshop?
Because I struggled to see my value as a relationship expert.
Why didn’t I stand up for myself and my talent that time and the other?
Because I didn’t believe my talent was worth a standing ovation, respect and a financial investment.
It always comes down to us; what we perceive of ourselves is how we are received. If we don’t believe we are enough, we will project that we are not enough. Therefore, we will be treated with mediocrity. We will accept mediocrity.
So, what is your perception of self? Are you accepting the minimum because you believe you deserve the minimum? Are you standing up yourself and your worth?
On this Motivation Monday, I encourage you to stand up, accept responsibility and know that you can.
