Oprah Winfrey, Sheryl Sandberg, Marissa Mayer, three high power women leaders. Have you ever looked at another woman’s success or happiness and wondered how did they get so lucky? How did they get it right? How did they land the great career? What makes one woman succeed while another struggles?
I’ve worked with hundreds of women and I know that success leaves clues.
My guess is that you are not a complete stranger to success yourself. After all, the kind of woman who takes the time to look at a website about wise woman leadership is typically already successful to some degree. But, you may also feel that you’ve only scratched the surface of what’s possible for you. You may have a feeling that there’s more for you to do, a greater purpose, bigger success. You want to take your life to the next level and do that in a way that feels easy, joyful and energizing.
I’ve worked with hundreds of women and I know that success leaves clues. Women who are successful in their careers have a few things in common. Here’s a few of the clues I’ve collected from successful women:
• Successful women know who they are and what they need to support them to move forward. They know that their true value is in knowing who they are and not simply in what they do.
•Successful women know what they want out of life and are courageous, resourceful and quick to release toxic emotions and thoughts that would otherwise hold them back.
•Successful women have a strategy, not just for work but for their whole life so moving to the next level of success feels easy and in balance with their personal life.
The other defining characteristic I’ve noticed about successful women is that they invest in the quality of their life and not the quantity of their life. What do I mean by that? Well, what I’ve noticed is that successful women will take the time for a walk or going to the gym instead of working another hour because they know that they do their best work and have their best ideas when they are high on energy. Successful women take time out every day to build relationships inside and outside of work because they know that keeping their nose to the grindstone gets the job done but not the promotion. They will invest in a personal development program before they buy a new purse because they know that having the resources to buy the purse will come easier if they are being successful. In other words, successful women invest their time, money and resources in things that have a big impact on the quality of their life. Don’t get me wrong, we all need to work long hours from time to time and I like a beautiful purse as much as the next person. But what I’ve noticed about successful women is that they are really clear about the 20% of time, money and resources that will create 80% of the results they want.
In other words, successful women invest their time, money and resources in things that have a big impact on the quality of their life.
I’m curious, if you looked over your calendar and your bank account would you say that you’re investing the time and money on what really matters to you? Does your spending reflect your values?
