“When it is time for you to leave this school, leave your job, or even leave this earth, you make sure you have worked hard to make sure it mattered you were even here.” ― Wes Moore
I used to define my worth by my professional achievements: my job title, the company I work for, and how much money I make. Once something went wrong with my employment, I came crumbling down.
There were times when I didn’t do particularly well at my career. I was very hard on myself about it. Every day I woke up like I was a failure. It was the worst feeling ever.
Back then I didn’t realise that I confused my job with my work. I was unhappy because I tried to find my value in my job — instead of my work.
A paid position of regular employment.
Activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result.
So, digital marketing is my job. And my work is my passion to show possibilities, in particular to empower young girls & women to dream big and take action. Because I strongly believe that we are as big as the dreams we dare to live.
It’s a continual, lifelong learning process for me to find and refine my work. However, I am making it my goal in life to bring my work to my job every day.
