Take a moment to think about the last time you’ve renegotiated your salary?
You have to adjust your mindset by knowing the monetary value you feel you are worth, according to what you can bring to the table, then fight for that salary at your next interview. Chances are, the salary you come up with is below what you’re worth.
A mindset shift like this doesn’t come overnight but takes practice and exercise like any other muscle.
