As an executive woman, you are constantly balancing the multiple demands on your time and energy—work, family, friends, spirituality, as well as your health and fitness. And if you’re like most professional women, you put your personal needs last, which means your physical and mental well-being may suffer, and also your relationships, productivity, focus and direction may be flagging.
Eighty eight percent of your behavior operates at
the subconscious level. Through family and cultural conditioning, as well as your life experiences, your unconscious mind creates the stories that you tell--about yourself as well as the world around you. In a traditional model, women are taught to put their needs last. In fact, it’s probably best “not to have needs,” or certainly not to let them show. Over time, we have learned to put others first, subverting our own needs.
But to really help others and our organizations, we need the inner strength, focus, and goals that self-development can bring. Self-awareness leads to focus. Focus leads to goals. Goals lead to success.
Isn’t it time you move to a higher level of inner-strength and focused, goal-oriented performance?
