If you know that you deserve the best, as you very well should, you need to make your demands very clear. Of course, this does not work with others if you have nothing to show for it. But you can certainly start this with yourself. Yes, even if you have nothing at the moment. Be crystal clear on what it is that you want and what is needed to be done to achieve it. Then demand yourself to carry it out to the best of your ability. Remember that clarity is power. So don’t only be intentional about your demands, be crystal about them too.
