Happy Monday! I’m looking forward to a great week, and I hope all of you are, too! It’s a short week since July 4th is on Friday, and I’m taking a little trip with one of my friends, so I’m excited about that!
I came across this quote on Pinterest, and I really like it…in fact, I’ve said something along these lines many times before!
I think that if you know what you want, you should ask for it. Whether it’s a job, a raise, a certain responsibility at work, or anything else, if you feel like you deserve it, you should ask for it! Because if people don’t know that you want something, they won’t offer it to you. If you’re confident that you want something and have worked hard enough to deserve it, you shouldn’t be afraid to say it! I’ve learned that no matter how much I want them to, great opportunities aren’t just going to fall into my lap. I’ve had to be confident in myself and my abilities to land both of the internships that I wanted- they weren’t really just handed to me. Additionally, once I started both of those internships, I saw tasks that I knew I was capable of and wanted to do, so I asked if I could try my had at them, and my bosses were happy to let me do them. You have to know what you want and go get it. Not in a ruthless way, but in a confident way. So this week, if you want something, don’t be afraid- let someone know! Chances are, they’ll be impressed and pleased you did.
That’s all for meow!
