5 inner peace

It seems that some people have never clarified what a perfect day would be for themselves.

You do not get what you deserve. You get what you negotiate

Lots of individuals especially Entrepreneurs enter the professional world thinking that their hard efforts would be instantly recognized. They would never have to really lay out terms or be explicit about what they want. They mistakenly think that it would just be anticipated and understood. That is a nice Theory.

In Real Life you have to be your biggest champion and that is sometimes hard to do. We sort of feel our hard work will just be enough. You just have to get out there:

Voice what you want
• Be assertive
• Do not be afraid of rejection
• Shoot for the stars
• Ask for more
• Step up and get out of your comfort zone

Do not assume

• people will recognize your hard work
Above all DO NOT assume people will translate that into giving you more money or more responsibility.

You have to have the courage to be your own advocate.
