Do you fall into the LIKABILITY trap?
This used to be such a big one for me--always overly-concerned about whether others were liking me or not. As a woman, I worried that others would find me pushy or too opinionated and that men would see me as not feminine but aggressive. I just wanted to be popular and liked.
There's nothing abnormal about wanting to be liked, but when we get overly-concerned with this our minds become too busy and more importantly it distracts us from doing great work.
But what I've come to SEE is that it's much better to be respected than liked. Being respected gives you so much power. Not everyone is going to like you, and that's OK. When you're respected you have power.
Where in your life are you falling into the likability trap? At work or in your personal relationships? I've been guilty of both.
WHERE ARE YOU LOSING YOUR POWER?
