There are too many times when we let others dictate what our value is, whether at home or at work. This week was very difficult for me as I found myself doing just that. Luckily I was able to get past it in about a day, but that was one day too long. During that time I kept questioning what I was doing, why I was doing it, and whether it actually brought any value to my team at work. After lots of internal evaluation, the answer is yes, but that should not have been in question because of someone else's opinion.
How often do you go through this? Too often I bet. I would be lying if I tried to tell you that I now have the answer, that I can prevent you from ever feeling this way. Unfortunately, all of us go through this at some point, for most of us, at several points in life. The key is to remember that you are amazing, you bring a unique and valued perspective to everything you do. If someone is questioning your value out loud, chances are that they are trying to prove their value to someone else by devaluing you. Keep doing what you are doing. You are going to make a difference!
