Do you deserve it?
Hello hello hello!
This past week I’ve been on a mission to help women get a raise. The one thing that keeps coming up (for myself as well as others) is a limiting belief that is sabotaging success.
It’s the belief that you won’t actually get the raise.
Now the circumstances might be different for people…
There’s no money in the budget
The economy sucks
I didn’t do anything special
I really screwed up that one time 6 months ago
….and the list goes on & on
The one thing all these things have in common, is the underlying issue of deserving a raise…
I don’t deserve a raise because there’s no money in the budget….
I don’t deserve a raise because the economy sucks….
I didn’t do anything special so I don’t deserve a raise…
I screwed up that one time 6 months ago so I don’t deserve a raise.
I’m not saying these things to hurt your feelings or make you mad. Nor am I going to pretend to know all the details of your particular situation. But the one thing I do know is that if you don’t believe that you deserve it, then unfortunately, that’s what you’re going to get.
The best way to banish this belief is to simply be aware of it & then ask yourself when did I decide to believe this? I’ve heard Tony Robbins so many times.
When did I decide to believe that I don’t deserve a raise?
When did I decide to believe that my one mistake 6 months ago cost me a raise?
Or…just kidding. You get the picture.
If getting a raise isn’t something you struggle with, then I hope you can apply to this to a different area of your life. I’ve learned from my own coach that if there’s a belief in one area of your life, it’s usually in all the others.
But, if getting a raise is something you struggle with, then I really encourage you to reach out and book your free Get A Raise Now coaching session with me. It’s where we’ll figure out how much money you should ask for, make sure there aren’t any secret challenges that could be sabotaging your success, and get really excited and confident to finally have that conversation with your boss!
