Advocating for Yourself

Image
For Latinas, it is hard to ask for help.  We have learned this from our "do-it-all" mamas (grandmas or papas).  Our mothers did it all and they did it without complaining. So how dare we ask for help?  We, Latinas, learned to do-it-all ourselves. What we didn't learn was the Art of Asking or advocating for ourselves. But wait we did, we did learn about the art of asking , we just don't realize that we did.  We learned how to ask for help for others. But not for ourselves. Asking for help [ for others ] is so ingrained in us that we don't even realize that we're doing it.   Think back to the last time one of your loved ones needed something and I mean really needed something.   You probably jumped in to help them ASAP, no questions asked, and you probably didn't even ASK people to help, YOU TOLD them to help!  So then why is asking for ourselves the hardest thing to do? When it comes to you, your mouth is closed and you don’t dare ask for help

  Are these Career Mindset Blocks keeping you from having the career you want? Imposter Syndrome Self-Sabotage Judging Others Negative Self-Talk All of these are ways that your mindset keeps you from taking action towards your career goals. Mindset has become a catchphrase, but really it’s nothing new.  Thought leaders have been talking about mindset before there was even a word for it.   Even the Bible and the Tao Te Ching talk about mindset.   Jesus said to him, “ If you can believe, all things are possible to them that believe ” Mark 9:23. “Empty your mind of all thoughts. Let your heart be at peace.” - Lazo Now let’s review these mindset blocks that can arise when you’re looking to have a career change. Imposter Syndrome is an internal belief that you’re not as competent as others perceive you or those around you. This can creep up when you’re starting a new project that’s out of your comfort zone. Or if you’re trying to break into a new career field. Self-Sabotage are b

3 Ways Your Mindset is Holding You Back

Here are 3 ways your Mindset is holding you back from the career growth that you want.  It causes you to overthink your decisions   (and keeps you from taking action) It creates false stories about yourself   (and keeps you from dreaming) It makes you feel like it's out of your control   (so you point the finger at others) Our minds are powerful.  Research has found that the average person has 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those thousands of thoughts, 80% were negative, and 95% were exactly the same repetitive thoughts as the day before. Our mind also tends to  focus on the negative and ‘play the same songs’ over and over again. Here’s the thing, research has found that 85% of the “worries” we have never happen and that the 15% of “worries” that do, people found that they were able to handle.  So everything that you THINK is keeping you from taking action in your career isn’t actually stopping you. YOU ARE STOPPING YOU. Your mindset can:  Cause you to overthink
