If you were selling your car and someone offered half the listing price, it would be crazy to accept such a low offer, right?
And yet, we do this in jobs when we are paid less than other employees and get passed over for promotions. Or by staying in relationships with people who aren't as invested in our happiness as they are in their own.
We may feel like victims of the "way things are" and feel forced to accept the lower status other people assign us. Perhaps we are afraid no one else will want us, and if they do it could be worse.
Whose fault is this?
Our own. We have chosen to let fear decide our worth. Fortunately, we can make a different choice.
Ask: Where do I need to stand up and say, "This is not good enough. I want more!"
