Happy Monday morning!
“The greatest luxury is the luxury of being yourself.”
Does this sound familiar? Is it even true?
According to Gallup, 58% of Canadian professionals aren’t in the right work situation
. One of the great myths is that being yourself is a luxury. My opening line this morning comes from an advertisement for Hilton, the luxury hotel and resort chain.
The irony of the statement is that being able to afford this kind of “getaway” is a strong indicator that you’re already pretty good at what you do. Does this kind of success
also mean you’re good at being yourself? Often yes, but not often enough.
How do I know this?
Stress is a $300 billion dollar issue in the North American workplace
. Being yourself is a need, and when you ignore it, the cost is very, very high.
Being yourself at work
is not a luxury. You don’t have to wait for that precious one or two week break at an exclusive resort, just to return to the grind for the rest of the year.
It’s a necessity to find a place where your work is in alignment with who you are.
