give yourself permission to be proud

April 20, 2020

Women in the workforce today have a lot to be proud of. Running businesses, receiving promotions, and making more money, often while juggling outside responsibilities and furthering their education, are no small feats. These are reasons to be proud and celebrate.

However, many women downplay their talents and professional accomplishments. The fear of seeming arrogant, conceited, or unworthy cause women to hide in the shadows rather than sharing their achievements with the world. It’s time that hardworking women gave themselves permission to be proud.

Here are 3 reasons why taking pride in your accomplishments is not only a good thing, but important.


Reaching goals doesn’t happen by chance, but with lots of hard work. Sharing your strengths, then, is important because it keeps you motivated to do more after one goal is attained. Nothing is worse than feeling burnt out after working hard for something, so keep yourself inspired and ambitious by taking ownership of your successes.


Whether you realize it or not, your co-workers, friends, and family are watching you. A win for you is a positive example for them to aspire to. By showing them that you are proud of who you are and what you do, you are letting them know that they can be successful and proud, too.


After the time, effort, and sacrifice that it requires to reach your goals, whatever they may be, celebrating appropriately is a necessity. Relishing in your accomplishments is therapeutic, rewarding, and a great opportunity to bond with loved ones. Bottom line: it’s well-deserved and will make you feel good.

Sharing your accolades with others doesn’t make you conceited, but a witness for what’s possible. It lets the world know what gifts you have that can benefit others and help you feel good doing it. It’s a healthy part of being a strong, well-rounded person. So don’t shelter your strengths — proudly share them with the world.
