Ep 108 - The Critical Difference Between Wanting & Needing To Be Liked
Show Notes

Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for corporate women who want to get promoted, be sought out for their expertise and be paid appropriately for their impact.

Hi there! I'm Rebecca Allen and I am a Career & Personal Brand coach who works with my  clients to help them thrive in their roles and build their executive profiles... which often requires us to do some work on their mindset.

A common challenge that many of these smart, qualified, high-achieving women encounter is the 'need to be liked'.

In this episode I am diving deep to explain the difference between 'wanting' and 'needing' to be liked...

And how wanting to be liked is actually really healthy and productive...

Whilst needing to be liked just brings with it untold anxiety and feelings of inadequacy. 

Here's something interesting I said in this ep! :)

"Needing to be liked, where the expectation is that everyone will like you (as well as everything you say) means you’re always seeking control and certainty… which just sets you up to fail because in reality, we have none of either."  (Rebecca Allen, Career Success Coach and host of Her Ambitious Career podcast)

If you have ever wanted to get over this 'need to be liked', this is the ideal starting point for you!

Let's get started!
