When we stop climbing to feed our need for self worth in title and pay, we start climbing to feed our need for authenticity and contribution.
Because the herd follows the same widely accepted, well worn direction, we accept this as normal and follow along.
That getting ahead requires us to be better than the others vying for the same position.
And the only way to stand out – to be selected – is to shine brighter than our peers.
This creates a prison cell for small, justifiable deceit to flourish in our soul.
And it insidiously compromises our authentic self.
