What? You’re Not Worthy Enough?

Do you ever INVEST in yourself?  We as women are always putting everybody else’s needs before our own and putting ourselves last. Sound familiar? We sacrifice for the family, for our jobs, working late to make the boss look good and then putting our children first and ourselves last. After all that you don’t even have the energy to think about putting yourself first let alone thinking about yourself. Woman Hand On Ear

It’s time to change all of that!! Don’t you think that you should be a priority instead of making everyone else a priority?  People pleasing can suck the life right out of you like a vampire. It can be exhausting, nauseating, and downright heartbreaking. Have you been afraid to take the initiative and hire a mentor?

I know it’s a risk but what if you never take that risk? You still will be in the same situation that you are in now saying to yourself if only I had invested in myself by hiring a mentor I could be….. Life is short and you don’t want to be saying things like “IF ONLY” or “I SHOULD HAVE” come on you can do it!

 

I know what you’re thinking. I can’t afford to hire a mentor. It costs too much money. I don’t have that kind of money laying around. Or I don’t have the slightest idea where I’m going to get that kind of money to hire a mentor. Here’s the best one; I’m scared to invest in myself. I too said all of those same things too to myself. But you know what, I could NOT afford NOT to invest in myself and hire a mentor. Yes you can come up with the money.  I had to dig deep and do some maneuvering money around but I did it. I’m worth it and so are you. Investing in yourself can create wonderful opportunities in your life. Opportunities such as helping you to take baby steps to get out of your job if that’s what you want to do. Helping you to get promoted within your company if that is your goal. If you already have a business a mentor will help you to expand your business and acquire more clients. There is so many possibilities that a mentor can help you achieve.

I invested in myself and hired a mentor. A mentor will help you get where you are trying to go faster because he/she has already been where you are and a mentor will guide you and get you to where you want to go faster and not let you make the mistakes they made because they have already been there. My mentor is Dr. Venus Opal Reese.  If you have never heard of her you should. She is a “Beast” and will hold you accountable for all of your actions. When I say that she is a beast I mean that in the most lovable, cherished way. It took me a long time to find someone like her but I’m glad my persistence finally paid off. You have to do your due diligence when it comes to hiring a mentor but when you find the one who is a fit for you, your life will never be the same again in a good way. Your mentor should stretch you and take you WAY out of your comfort zone. That’s the only way that you are going to change and grow.
