Economist Linda Babcock of Carnegie Mellon University & author of ‘Women Don’t Ask’ has stated that ‘Women often leave between $1 million to $1.5 million dollars on the table when they don’t ask for the money they want to earn.’
Imagine that. Imagine earning an extra $1 million to $1.5 million dollars throughout your career.
What would your life be like?
Who would you be?
What would you be doing?
What dreams would you have made come true because you had the financial wherewithal to create the life you dreamed of having and had because you ASKED for the money you wanted to earn, and most importantly, you believed you were worth it?
It’s a cliché I know, and yet it is also very true.
Right now the only reason you haven’t created the life you want or fulfilled the dreams you have is because you haven’t ASKED for the money you want (plus all the other things you would ask for once you realised you could and you learnt how to do it in a way which brought them to you).
So why aren’t you asking?
There are many reasons I hear when I ask this question and women often share with me why they haven’t.
They don’t believe they have what it takes. They don’t think they’re smart enough. They think there’s too much competition. They don’t feel confident enough. They don’t know what to say or do or how to approach the conversation. They’ve been told no before. They doubt they’ll be able to handle the new responsibilities they may have to take on. They feel like a fraud, an imposter. They don’t have enough experience. And on and on….
All of those things, but at the core, one thing and one thing only.
Ultimately, beneath everything, you don’t believe you’re enough/good enough.
And there’s only one thing I can say to you in response.
If you go through your life at your core unconsciously believing this about yourself, not only will you deny yourself the many thousands, potentially hundreds of thousands and who knows, maybe even millions of dollars, the dreams you have for you and your loved ones, you will deny yourself the most important, invaluable, priceless gift you could ever receive.
The gift of YOU.
Whole. Glorious. Gorgeous. Dazzling. Loving. Charismatic. Joyful. Strong. Playful. Exciting. Funny. Confident. Invincible. Hilarious. Inspiring. Powerful. Priceless.
Whatever words you use to describe who you know you really are and who every so often turns up to shine her radiance to herself and all the people whose lives she touches.
Imagine being her and living as her, all the time.
I know this is who you are and so, I’m going to extend you an invitation.
I believe in you and your ability to have all you want, especially the money you want to earn, which in turn will have you feeling so powerful and priceless, that not only will you ASK for and receive the money you want, you will create all the dreams for your life you dream of.
It’s simple really.
