The Way You Get There MattersJul 13, 2022
The way you get there matters.
The life you want isn't worth it if you have to compromise who you are and what you value to make it happen.
Your character shouldn't have to crack for you to create the career of your dreams. So if you're working somewhere that doesn't value you, you don't have to simply put up with it.
Because if getting your ideal role means giving up self respect, the price is too high.
You deserve to be seen, to be heard, to be valued. But you can't wait for others to do this for you. It always starts with doing it for yourself first.
This doesn't mean you have to combatively make demands (remember, the way you get there matters).
But it does mean you can set boundaries. You can make it clear when you work, and when you don't. You can make it known what you're up for, and what you aren't.
You can walk away. You can set boundaries. You can show up for you, as you.
The way you get there matters. Don't lose yourself in the process of getting to your dreams. Because if that's what happens, the dream dies before you even arrive.
