Don’t shrink, don’t puff up, just be yourself.
When it comes to success, I was a mess. I struggled for a long time to become a grounded, successful adult.
I knew what I didn’t want and I started hustling for a life with less efforts and less of those sad compromises I was seeing around me. You know, the ones that partially satisfy your needs and keep you stuck in a state of constant frustration and disappointment. I didn’t want a life made of that.
A new year has just started, it’s the perfect time for reflection and I want to lift up this idea of making space for success in your life.
When we talk about making space for success, there are different aspects we need to look at:
- The first one is making space to be yourself and believe that you deserve to achieve your goals.
- The second one is making space in your professional environment.
- The third one is making space in society for yourself and other successful women.
I talk a lot about the need for women to take their place, live boldly and make a difference – while contributing to shape new, courageous and successful female role models. I believe that for women it’s time to seriously commit to fulfilling their potential. And still, everyday I see a lot of women holding themselves back. If you are one of them, in this post you’ll learn how you can start taking more responsibility over your life and actually make things happen.
I have this vision of a future in which women thrive. I see this potential in women, in you, to become free and independent, able to make your own choices and shape a life that is really built on what makes you happy. A life in which you have the courage of your convictions and you live brave-heartedly. Full of joy, good health and with everything that matters to you. Can you picture that? I surely can.
Confidence for women is a concept that hasn’t been clearly defined yet. We have different ideas of what feeling confident means and what a confident woman looks like. Confidence for women hasn’t been clearly defined yet because it’s something new. Empowering women is a work in progress and we are still shaping new roles that didn’t exist just some years ago.
