Knowing one’s worth is different than being able to articulate the value you bring to an organization.
Knowing one’s worth means that you fundamentally understand that you deserve to be treated with dignity, respect, and that you treat others the same way. It’s internalizing that you are more than your job title, your bank account, or the awards you’ve received.
It’s defining success for yourself, being able to hold firm boundaries, and speaking up when something’s not right.
Articulating your value is much easier, and is important when negotiating compensation or when interviewing for a new role.
Knowing your worth is something that is harder, as it requires you to understand that you’re enough while also pushing for better.
