Living A Successful Life

4 Things Every Successful Woman Should Know.

Over the years I have had success’s and challenges, but I have always maintained my will to succeed and most importantly, believed in myself.  I have used my choice to make success a must in my life in all other areas from my career to my personal life. Yes, it takes a lot of work and dedication and it starts with having confidence in yourself, but if there is anything I have learned, there are a few rules to keep in mind to be successful.

Sorry is not always the answer.

Many women are passive and don’t speak up for fear of reinforcing negative stereotypes that being vocal is not ‘feminine’ or being frowned upon by coworkers. Don’t worry what people think and be yourself. Present ideas you have, don’t second-guess yourself and don’t say you’re sorry when you’ve done nothing wrong. Expressing your ideas and opinion is being authentic and true to who you are, no one should have to apologize for that. Excessively saying your sorry shows weakness and detours peers from seeing you as a confident individual who doesn’t doubt their decisions. When you stand by your choices, it will help future decision-making go smoothly and give you an authoritative edge.

 

Find your tribe, find a mentor.

Learning helps you grow, fuels your success and gives you new skills that will help you along your journey. That is why it is important to have a mentor or someone you admire for their hard work and successful attributes. Whether it is a teacher, a boss or even someone like Oprah, use their successes as role models. If it is someone you know and can frequently talk with, pick their brain and sometimes even follow their lead.

 

Find time to check out.

With success comes a need for balance. If you only did one thing over and over every day you would burn out within a few months. Instead, find an outlet – whether it be a creative escape that is completely different from your day-to-day work or using fitness as your ‘me’ time. It’s important to find ways to clear your mind, take care of your body, and more importantly, take care of your soul. I find sometimes if I step away from my work and do something else, it will spark ideas that in turn help me with my work. I’ve heard writers say this is a great way to rid writer’s block, and no one ever suffered from indulging in a little creative fun, time with family and friends or R&R. Take your daily soul breaks.

 

Believe in who you are.

When it comes to succeeding, you can be your worst enemy, but you should also be your biggest fan. When you believe in yourself and push yourself beyond limits you didn’t know you could reach, you’ll be more confident to move forward. Every successful woman has either had someone tell her she can’t achieve her goals or been exposed to criticism at work. The difference between them and others is their ability to let that criticism and doubt fuel their ambition. They believe in themselves and know no matter what they can make their dreams a reality, and you can too!

I believe in you and your success! I believe every woman deserves to live a life she loves full of freedom and passion. There is a way to have balance at work and at home. Stay true to who you are and always chase your dreams. If you are struggling and feel stuck, let's talk!  Soul Retreats are a perfect jump start to fuel your spark for life again.
