Embracing our success
Many of us learned a healthy work ethic from our family system. However, what many of us didn't learn was a healthy reward ethic!
Entrepreneurs, businesses owners and anyone working towards success and financial reward, may find that when they get there they are filled with guilt about taking advantage of what they have achieved.
What will my family think? What will my staff think?
Part of adult maturity is being able to see objectively both the strengths and weaknesses of the family system, tribe that we grew up in. Going forward we want to be the kind of people who can model healthy giving without draining ourselves and healthy receiving which isn't followed by a guilt, lack of deserving attack!
When we learn to functionally embrace our success and what comes with it, we give others permission to do the same.
I hope you find the episode helpful!
