Being a woman isn’t easy! You’re always instructed on how to behave, eat, sit, dress, and so on. However, in real life, only those people who choose their own paths are considered to be leaders. If you think about successful women leaders, names like Serena Williams, Michelle Obama, and Laureate Amanda Gorman surely come to mind. These women are admirable because they paved their own paths rather than giving in to stereotypical thinking. They did things according to their own wisdom and did what they believed was best for them.
Who doesn't want to follow in these women's footsteps? Let's read about what some of the most successful women have to say about making a good career.
1. Take A Start
The nerves will never go away–most times you'll feel like you're not ready at all. You'll be scared, sure, but the thought that will motivate you is just how far you’ve come over the years. The key to success is trying. As the saying goes, nothing can be accomplished until and unless you try and make it happen. Doubting yourself is perfectly normal but it’s also true that doubts have the ability to kill dreams way more than the fear of failure does.
2. Don't Bring Yourself Down
Every single one of us has a voice in their head that tells them that they can't do it, shouldn't do it, or even dare to try. This is called Imposter syndrome but at the end of the day, it’s important to realize that this is all in your mind. A simple way to fight back these thoughts is by reminding yourself that you're perfect just hey way you are.
3. Keep learning
Get more knowledge on your area of interest and find something new to learn every day. It’s important that you know things other than the skills required for you to do your job–take time out to see what’s happening around in the industry, and what influencers and subject matter experts are up to. Doing this can help you gain confidence when communicating with colleagues or even during a job interview.
So, are you ready to give your career that extra push? Good luck!
