#49 3 Reasons Now Is the Time to Put Yourself First

The 360 Leadhership Podcast, Episode 49, 30 November 2022 by Lucy Gernon

Do you feel guilty when you put yourself first?

If you want something to change in your career or life, you’ve got to make changes. Don’t wait for things to change. MAKE the change.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry once said, “The time for action is now. It’s never too late to do something.” Yet why do so many women leaders, as intelligent and mighty as they are fail to see this?

In episode 47, we spoke about how many people fail to invest in themselves or reach out for help in order to change their life because they do not have enough time or they feel guilty for spending money on themselves but have no problem splashing out on lavish gifts for a loved one.

Many women (my past self included) just accept where they are in life now thinking it is too late to make a change, hoping their situation will improve ‘over time’. Many of those women have been sitting in this same place, in the same situation for years now. Because they have not taken action.

Believe it or not, it is not time or money holding you back, it’s yourself.

Sometimes, you may need a little help or guidance in order to create change and that’s ok.

Make a deal with yourself: Get outside your comfort zone in 2023. When you back yourself and take action, your life and career can look and feel very different. If you are willing to step outside of familiarity, take a chance and just invest in yourself you will get where you want to be.

Pause for a second and ask yourself:

Do you feel happy and content with your career and life?

How is your work-life balance?

Do you frequently feel overwhelmed and overworked?

Do you often feel exhausted, frustrated or just a bit meh?

If you were in the same place you are now in six months time, would you be happy?

If you’re not happy you HAVE to do something about it.
