26 Mar Day #85 *March 26, 2018* – They Are Your Priority; You Are Only Their Option…
It is Monday. You are about to go back to the workplace. But you know that your current job is casting a shadow of doubt over your own self-image. The longer you stay where you are, the more you will begin to question who you are. That is not a good feeling. I know this experience, first hand. Your job is your priority. You give more time, energy, and emotion to making the end product perfect. And you wait for your work to be recognized. Recognition never happens. So, you try again the next day—Tuesday. You maneuver through all of the politics, the pettiness, and the negative working environment to deliver another perfect end product. No recognition. Listen, I have some advice for you. Do not make your job a priority when they only treat you as an option! You deserve to be somewhere that rewards you for your hard work. You are amazing and you deserve to be reminded of it. Do not go uncelebrated! Reward can be in the form of praise, it can be money, it can be visibility, a promotion, or comp time, etc. It could also be a mere acknowledgement of how valuable you are to the business. Know this. There is a company out there that will celebrate you and show you that you are their priority too! You will be treasured. Don’t wait for the company to find you. Start doing your research today. There is never a better moment to begin thinking about the rest of your life than the present moment.
Sending you Love & Light,
