I hope everyone is having a great week so far! I felt inspired so I just wanted to share some encouragement and thoughts for all the hard working women out there!
I think as women, many of us underestimate ourselves. If we actually believe in ourselves and consider ourselves as serious contenders, we would be amazed at what we could achieve. Most of us have so much more to offer than what we realise, and we tend to sell ourselves short.
Growing up, girls are not usually pushed as much as the boys to be independent and business driven. It’s clear that young boys are very much encouraged to have this ‘go get em!’ attitude. They are taught to be adventurous and brave, whilst girls are taught to be careful and delicate. I think that we need to instil confidence in young girls, that they can achieve their goals and they can do all the things that the boys can do! I believe that being caring and considerate are very important traits to learn (for both males and females), but this does not mean that alongside these qualities girls cannot be encouraged to be strong, bold and confident!
Growing up we are influenced greatly by what we see and I still think that this is true with adults. If we surround ourselves with strong and confident women, we are more likely to flourish in these areas. I would love to see more business women shown in the media and on tv, the workplace is no longer only an area only for men. Let’s support each other in whatever our dreams may be (whether that be work related or something completely different) and may we dare to dream!
