We are continuing with the second half of the 15 Traits of Unabashedly Successful Women!
Remember, you can find the original post, written by me, for Success.com, on the website SUCCESS.com. You can also just keep listening here, and see if you agree with these points or if you don’t agree with them, or if you’d like to add something…. If you would like to comment, you can on the Facebook page of the Strong Women’s Club.
You can also, which would be extremely kind and thoughtful of you, go over to iTunes and leave a little rating and review.
Just press pause, leave a review of one quick sentence on iTunes then come back here and hear why you, too, are a successful woman, and will be and can be a successful woman!!
You’re back ---- ha ha ha----- Ok, let’s jump in where we left off last week. #8 Successful women remain grateful: This means that they, we, aren’t afraid to give credit where credit is due. They don’t take things for granted, such as their current position. They are aware of the hard work it has taken to get there, and they’re grateful for their success. And thank you to all the people who’ve helped along the way! #9: Unabashedly successful women work hard and persistently: Nobody gets to where they are, if they’re successful, without working hard. Including Tim Ferriss and his four -hour work week, which of course is not four hours, Tim is the first to say it. This sounds obvious, but it’s worth a mention. Doing well takes hard work. Again and again and again. As we say in our house: No Shit, Sherlock. But still. #10: They don’t sweat the small stuff: Successful people are good at separating the valuable from the worthless. The wheat from the chaff. They know how to pick their battles.
I recently heard the most wonderful and inspiring Ruth Bader Ginsburg on a podcast called What It Takes, where she says the best advice she ever received was from her future mother in law, before her marriage to Marty. And it was: occasionally, it’s a good idea, to be deaf.
That’s true in a marriage. It’s true at work. It’s true in all relationships.
So don’t sweat the small stuff. Be deaf to it. Move on. #11 They choose their battles wisely: This is a direct continuation of the previous point. Hot shot successful women don’t make a big deal over every little thing. But, if there’s a real problem, you can be sure it will be swiftly taken care of. #12. They do what they believe in: So this is a really important point. It’s crucial. I mean, how can you keep up doing all that hard work, be persistent, known what’s important and what isn’t, if you don’t believe in what you’re doing. You can’t. Plain and simple. You must have a purpose to your work. You must have a meaning. There has to be substance and values behind your work. This is the fuel. This enables us to keep going when it’s hard. And it will be hard. #13 They have confidence! Ta DA!!! Yes!!! Successful women believe in themselves!! And it is beautiful!!!! The most beautiful thing is confidence!! #14 Unabashedly successful women have a vision for the future: Successful women see a new and better world in the future and work towards achieving those changes. They are in it for the long haul. #15!!! They feel successful, but never done! There’s always more, always better, always further to reach. These women are seemingly tireless, ultimately devoted and constantly curious! So, ladies, nobody is superwoman. We are all made of flesh and blood. However, if you want to be super-successful, take into account these points, see which of them you have got under control, which could use a little work, and which others you’d add to the list! This was part two of our success series. Who knows, maybe there will be part three. Let me know! If you like it, then there will be! Please leave a rating and review. Somebody told me that if you don’t ask, people won’t know, so I’m asking: Please share this podcast with your friends. I mean properly share it: take their phones, show them where to subscribe from. You can subscribe on iTunes, directly from my website, on Google Play if you’re on Android, or on Stitcher… Plenty of places. So help them get some great free content right on their phones, and help me grow the program. So that’s three friends you can share it with this week. Now even. Do it!
Thanks everybody for listening, ciao for now, and l’hitraot!!
