Throughout the years, I have met and coached woman in positional power who believed that being aggressive, arrogant and irreverent was the persona of a powerful person. It turned out that it wasn’t and they eventually derailed their leadership effectiveness.
Through the process of self-empowerment coaching, my clients discovered that underneath their contemptuousness was imposter syndrome, the fear of being found out that she was a phoney, that her self-confidence was wobbly and inconsistent and that she was often plagued with self-doubt.
Our coaching sessions were focused on bringing forth her inherently empowered authentic-self, which resulted in a natural and observable transformation.
An empowered woman who knows and respects herself radiates an authentic confidence, she is grace under fire and she interacts with people with interest, respect and compassion. Empowered woman understand the strength and purpose of their power and they proudly wield it to inspire, create and to positively influence her world. 🦋
Be You! That is your superpower! There is nothing more beautiful, inspiring or powerful than a woman unapologetically being herself. The true essence of beauty is authentic fluency, the language of self awareness, respect and confidence. You are extraordinary, be you. It is enough, more than enough! 🦋
If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life.
With confidence, you have won even before you have started.
~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws will be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings.
That is what I think freedom really is…
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
~ Henry David Thoreau (Walden)
