Due to cultural reasons, how we were brought up, or literally our DNA from hundreds of years of conditioning, women are not speaking up and making their accomplishments known. It’s important to know this and speak about your achievements!
You are a big [email protected] deal!
If you want the recognition and opportunities you deserve, this is an important part of taking control.
To begin, gain clarity on your values and your passions. What do you love? What lights you up? For me, it’s preparing others for high-level meetings, presentations or interviews, and then hearing they’ve knocked it out of the park.
What is it for you? Figure it out and get comfortable speaking about it, so others are aware of what you love and what you are good at.
Do you feel like this may be bragging? Contrary to popular belief, people are interested in what you have to say and more inclined to keep you in mind for opportunities that come up in line with your...
Has anyone ever given you a compliment that you’ve downplayed or shrugged off as being insignificant or ‘not a big deal’? Maybe you’ve achieved a new level of success or had a big win and then just moved on to the next thing without taking in the magnitude of what YOU did.
Permission for a healthy dose of tough love…
If you want more recognition from others, it’s important to start recognizing yourself more. This serves two purposes. First, progress boosts confidence, momentum and motivation. In order to capitalize on this, it’s important to pause and party! Be sure to celebrate the process and not just the ‘W’s’. For example, you made 3 phone calls to key stakeholders or if you practiced relentlessly for an upcoming presentation. Of course, if you got that raise, promotion or kudos, schedule in a way to celebrate that as well! Don’t forget to plan that ‘pause and party’!
Have you been craving some recognition for all your amazing hard work and contribution?
If so, it’s no wonder. You deserve it!
One of our primary drivers of happiness is the desire to feel acknowledged and valued. If you’ve been going over and above the call of duty, producing stellar results, but have not been receiving the recognition you want and deserve, here are three ways you can light a fire under the behind of others, so they take notice of you and laud your efforts and accomplishments.
1.) Hone It and Own It.
Repeat to a trusted friend, family member or to yourself in the mirror every day for at least a week at the same time every day. You can even send an audio message to someone:
“I am excellent at ….., and I bring tremendous value to ……. I love it because ….., and I speak about my area of passion and expertise to three colleagues, family members or friends a week.”
Do you feel like everything is catching up with you?
Overwhelmed by your current schedule and possibly underwhelmed by the progress you’re making on initiatives that matter to you?
It’s definitely that time of year, and you are not alone. The good news is that you can have a "mini intervention" with yourself, your schedule, and the impact you’re having, so you can feel less overwhelmed and more in control and on purpose. You’ll likely be more fun to be around too:)
This "Get to Know Yourself" questionnaire will help you next-level your understanding of who you are and what’s important to you. You’ll be looking from a perspective that may be unfamiliar, but this can be a catalyst to ignite momentum and inspire consistent action.
