“If I could sum up why I’m committed to the HR Girlfriends community it would come down to because we are ‘….in this together.'”

~Sana’ Rasul, Chief Girlfriend

Affirmation: Taking on additional responsibilities at work increases my value.

I work to my fullest potential. It gives me a sense of satisfaction to extend myself into other areas, so I gladly accept additional responsibilities when they come my way. Taking on new projects also makes me more valuable to my employer.

I reject the narrative that I owe my employer the amount of work that is equivalent to my salary. There is value in giving more than what my compensation covers.

Going beyond the call of duty gains me recognition as a loyal employee who is concerned about the well-being of the company. I understand that doing my part to keep the organization successful contributes to my longevity there.

When I offer my assistance to other departments, I expand my horizons. Learning new areas of the business makes me flexible and attractive as an employee.

My employers know that I am reliable when they recognize how versed I am in the business. They treat me respectfully and deserve my full effort.

I know that doing more also adds to my value for future endeavors. Each action that I perform today is in preparation for a lifetime of projects that I am bound to undertake.

Today, I welcome additional responsibility. My compensation comes from developing myself and opening new opportunities for my future self as a result.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. When does helping others cross the line into overextending myself?
  2. What other actions cause an increase in my value?
  3. How do I adjust use of my time to ensure that I am being productive?
