Carving out your path to success can be a challenge if you constantly compare yourself to others. You have your own journey to make, so it is essential to give yourself permission to be you.
Jeanette Nyden, an experienced lawyer and contract negotiations expert, advises people to embrace who they are. Be authentic, confident, and take the necessary steps to improve your skills. You don’t have to change to be like someone else. As Jeanette explains, “You need to understand your why.” Find a purpose, and step in to fill a gap.
