Don’t temper your professional goals for fear of being disliked.
- Studies show that if a woman and a man are equally successful, make all the same decisions, and behave in the exact same way, the man will be liked and praised, but the woman will be disliked and considered difficult, aggressive, or selfish.
- Of course, no one passes this judgement consciously, but they do pass it nonetheless. To avoid receiving feedback of this sort, women tend to temper their professional goals, which keeps them from being successful. If you truly want to achieve success as a woman, you have to recognize your value. Do not temper your professional goals for fear of being disliked.
