The Value of Paying Your Success Forward

The Value of Paying Your Success Forward

Whether you’re sharing expertise you wish you knew when you just started out or putting in a good word that helps someone move forward in their career, paying it forward doesn’t just benefit the receiver; it can also be valuable for the giver, a.k.a. you. 

It’s Time to Rethink Your Self-Worth

Even if you’re not aware of it, there’s a good chance you’ve learned to measure your value based on outside factors like your educational, professional, or even financial achievements. But the truth of the matter is, your real value is defined by what YOU think, feel, and believe about yourself…not what degree you have, the title in your email signature, or whether your boss thinks you deserve that promotion. 

Why Having Empathy is Nonnegotiable

Why Having Empathy is Nonnegotiable

For me, empathy is all about removing barriers to understand where someone else is coming from (even if I don’t always agree with them) by choosing to see THEIR feelings, thoughts, and experiences from THEIR perspective versus my own. Similarly, it’s also being understood on the same level by my colleagues, friends, and family members.
