I recently took Friday off for a mental health day; a chance to reset and recharge.
As I adjusted to my new role as Account Supervisor, the past few months have been some of the most rewarding and challenging I've experienced in my career so far.
This was largely because I entered a new world of management I wasn't previously familiar with.
Though I've accomplished a lot over these months, it certainly hasn't been easy and, the past few weeks, I started to feel like I wasn't doing my job well enough.
Self-doubt is something I've struggled with so I knew when Marcella recommended me to read You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life, it was exactly what I needed.
In You Are a Badass, author, Jen Sincero, provides a witty approach to learning how to love yourself and attracting the people and energy you need in life in order to embrace your inner badass.
It starts off with some high-level, feel-good advice but eventually taps into actionable takeaways you can incorporate into your every day.
A few of my favorite messages and exercises include:
- Making enjoying your life a priority
- Ditching the self-deprecating humor
- Forgiving yourself
- Taking advantage of opportunities when they present themselves
- Finding a cause you care about and giving to it every month (however you can, whether by money or time!)
- Complimenting your peers and others
Though these may seem simple and obvious to you, I promise that the sentiments go much deeper.
