9 Ways STRONG Women Get Ahead In Life Without Loosing Themselves
Ways STRONG Women Get Ahead In Life – What does true “success” look like to you?
Wherever you are on the spectrum of success, I’m going to assume you’re a clever woman, ready to promote your potential and face the inevitable challenges ahead.
But, it’s easy for me to believe in you and your capabilities. What I want to know is — do youbelieve in yourself?
Believing in yourself is far more than a nice, warm-and-fuzzy feeling you have. True self-confidence helps you choose how to best use your time, deal with others (and their expectations), and honor your own values.
Put another way — true confidence is essential to achieving success without losing yourself.
But first, you must get clear on your own definition of success and what it takes to achieve it. Then, it’s important to appreciate your current levels of mastery and triumphs and recognize what does (and does not) light you up inside. For example: Do bigger deals, new projects, or more complex processes still engage you, or do they no longer satisfy you? Are your vacations eaten up by work demands or do they bring actual relaxation and rejuvenation?
Decide what success in LIFE looks like, not just career success.
And remember: Success rarely remains static. Natural shifts and changes in yourself, others, and situations keep life in flux. As such, your level of “success” will have its ups and downs. Clever women adapt, but stay true to themselves by remaining alert for inner feelings about what’s right for them and what promises some pleasure and possibly joy.
Once you’re clear on what you want, what you don’t want, and the short-term and long-term path of how to get there, here are 9 ways to get ahead without losing yourself:
1. Honor your commitments and work hard … with purpose
Make sure your efforts are win-win, addressing the needs of others while also holding meaning for you. Combine your purpose with passion and perseverance to fast-track your success goals.
