So many people have the disconnect between their personal life and their work life. Many times people believe that they can not be their true self in the workplace. There is the work personality and then the after work personality. Because of this disconnection of self, most people feel unhappy. Using your voice, and being yourself is often frowned upon in Corporate America, and so there are millions of unhappy people that never feel at peace with themselves while at work. Does it need to be this way? The answer is no.
How can we begin to use our own authentic voice while in the workplace? Well.. it all starts with just being who you are when no one is watching. In order to feel fulfilled in life, you must have both happiness and peace in all areas of your life including your work life. A person must begin to use their voice by being true to their thoughts and feelings, then having their words and actions to match those feelings. When you are not matching your actions with your feelings, you are rejecting yourself. The rejection of self brings about depression, which can then lead to other self destructive behaviors, which so many people tend to manage in order to recieve a paycheck.. So is the depression worth the paycheck?
A paycheck is never worth the money or the negative patterns that come along with it. Choose to be who you are and speak your truths regardless of where you are. If the place that you are does not accept that, it is not the place for you. If the people in the room don't like what you have to say, find a different room. There are tons of rooms in this world that want to hear what you have to say, so keep searching until you find the room that loves your true voice. Choose to happy, not the paycheck.
