How To Be A Successful Career Woman.
Just recently women have being focused on their career, women voices can be heard, they can have great ambitions, and more values to offer to the society. So, it is no surprise that women are elected_and_appointed_female_heads_of_state_and in to the_government.
Nevertheless, every woman has a different definition of success, but to a certain percentage almost all women have same characteristics that makes them stand out as successful women.
Truth be told, there’s a similar trait all successful women possess, that is – they surround themselves with fellow ambitious and great career women.
I attended a women conference in Metropolitan hotel, Calabar. Nigeria, last year, and “how to be a successful career woman” is one of the frequently asked questions. I could see the hunger of women who wished to do great things and change narratives.
So, here is a quick question for you “are you an aspiring career woman?
Was your answer to the question above “yes?
Then here are certain traits you should possess and nurture:
Develop Love And Passion For What You Do
Nobody becomes successful with hate and dissatisfaction for what they do, you may be skillful, you may put in your best into all you do, but success wouldn’t come to you completely.
Let’s assume you love and have passion for what you do, plus your drive and hard work will simply catapult you and your company ( or whatever it is that you do) to a greater level. You will always beam with smiles and joy each time you step out to do your work.
Do Not Expect Perfection
If you’ve being following my articles then you would be used to this point already, that is to tell you how important it is to not expect perfection from yourself.
Many bosses have ruined chances of getting great results because of their quest for excellent and perfect results.
People hopes and happiness have crashed because they never got expected produce, so they become frustrated and downtrodden and maybe it becomes difficult to try again.
Be it as it may, it is a nice thing to hope and work towards achieving the best but for you to be so bent in achieving perfection is a “No No” for me.
Success comes with knowing what is achievable and sticking to your benchmark too, it will really keep your mental health in check.
Be Your Own Boss
How do you measure success when you are not leading? Success entails setting rules for yourself or work towards hitting that promotion that will skyrocket you for success.
You will gain control of things around you – that’s what being your own boss means anyways, you will be balance and happy.
Believe In Yourself
It’s popularly said that ” your believing system is your becoming system” apparently it means you become what you believe in. So when you believe in yourself and the fact that you can be successful, it is an important way of achievement.
So no matter how crazy your ideas look to you now – (in fact if your ideas are not crazy then there aren’t worth it, sounds familiar? 😊) believe that you can achieve it and you can be heard also, Believe you can build your confidence level to achieving your goals.
Do Not Be Afraid To Take Risks
Let’s debunk that believe that women hate to take risk and risk taking is only for men.
This point is personal, I feel like I’m talking to myself too, most times I wonder how far I would have gone and how great my achievements would have been if I wasn’t afraid of anything, yes I know I took so many risks in the past that didn’t yield any expected results but we never know when our breakthrough for success will come.
So if you desire success maybe like me, you need not be afraid and of course treat every risk with caution.
Know That To Succeed, You Must Fail
This point can not be over emphasized, failure doesn’t mean you can’t rise and push on again, failure only teach you golden lessons that make you perform better the next time you try again.
Especially if you are trying an entirely new project, expect to fail, remember one of Thomas Edison’s quotes “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work” he still pressed on expecting to succeed.
Take Care Of Yourself
Successful women have this similar traits of looking good😊, they treat their health and body with high priority.
No one sees success in an unorganized person, try to exercise once in a while, it will help keep your body in check and help you release those bad energy you must have accumulated as a result of stress, rather than transferring aggression to people around you.
Exercise will do you a favor of releasing endorphins and unwanted vibes, it will make you look good, smart and happy.
Schedule Some Alone Time
We know you have domestic responsibilities (house work) and your other work to do, but how about your own need? You need to be refreshed, you need a lone time with yourself to think things through, it will help you harness your abilities even more, at least you can find out what you need to do well or even stop doing.
Go for vacations, treat yourself to a nice outing with no one, eat all you want and can, get a massage, and remember to do some research because all these joined together can really help your success growth.
Remember you have goals and always think about them. Keep planning, evaluating, re-evaluating your long term goals at every point.
This will help you know which goals to be prioritized or dropped for new and important goals to be fixed in your plan.
It is also important that you have all your day schedule figured out, so you don’t have to spend a reasonable time of your day playing around rather than going for your goal.
Many people know what they want, but that’s not enough, you have to go for it. You won’t achieve success if you don’t take some steps towards achieving your goals.
This entails knowing what achieving your goals will demand and how your career can grow.
Do you need to attend specific seminars or take some few courses to move you to success? Then it’s time for you to take action.
How do your mentors handle similar issues like yours? what strategies do they employ? It’s high time you started your own strategies too.
Success comes with a price, you gotta pay before you can access the goldmine
