Women have recognized their rightful place of power across all industries.
Yet even among the most successful, there exists doubt and insecurity. Why, because our experiences shape our realities.
Simple but profound just consider a fish in the water. It doesn't understand what water is until it is removed from that water.
To understand the indoctrination that exists in all of our lives we can look to stories or labels, those we tell ourselves and that others put upon us. Our experiences, family, education, where we live, mentors, the list goes on, all inform our reality.
Changing a paradigm of scarcity requires education, self-realization, and equanimity.
If you want to facilitate change and make a real transformation, expanding awareness and creating a meaningful shift, consider these 3 simple things.
1. What habits do you have? How do they serve you?
When you look at your practices you can see your priorities. Try journaling those habits, and consider what happens when you modify or make a change. Awareness is key to better understanding your perspective around personal strengths, opportunities and desires.
2. What are your stories or labels? Are they real or perceived?
Make a list of characteristics, those things that resonate with you, and how you see yourself. Balance can occur when you own the stories that matter most to you. When you put aside those stories that have generated results in your life you want to change, you find equanimity and a purposeful path that provides you exactly what you want in your life.
3. Next spend time interviewing a few people who know you well. How do they see you? Where are the commonalities and differences? What can you learn from the observations? Transformation occurs when your perspective expands. Becoming an observer can allow you a clearer path to change.
These thought-provoking suggestion are just the tip of the iceberg when considering how to change a paradigm that creates such limiting beliefs both in the question asked and a response given.
