Ep. 81 – To Be A Smart Ambitious Woman is Hard Work

Smart Woman's Manifesto
Smart Woman’s Manifesto

This episode is for you, the smart, ambitious woman who feels the pull of trying to be in so many places, helping so many people at the same time.

Have a listen.  Then share this with a woman who needs to hear this today.

Like the saying goes, “The world makes way for those who know where they are going.”

The key is then… to know where you are going.

Get that in your purse:

I just finished reading “Year of Yes” by Shonda Rhimes.

I thought I had to know of every episode of every show she’s ever created to get it.

Uh, no.

Here’s just one quote to give you some perspective.  “When you negate someone’s compliment, you are telling them they are wrong. You’re telling them they wasted their time. You are questioning their taste and judgment.”

Say Yes to yourself.  If you’re not a reader, I know you’re a listener, because, well, this is a podcast.  Get Year of Yes and listen while you are driving the kids in the car.

Speak the Lingo:

Today’s Leadership Lingo Term: ambitious

Having ambition; eagerly desirous of achieving or obtaining success, power, wealth, a specific goal, etc.

Today’s focus:

Being a Smart, Ambitious Woman is tough.

We are too tough on ourselves.

We expect more from ourselves than is necessary.

Our striving for excellence can actually hold us back.  We need a reminder.

We need perspective.

We need to understand why we are fighting that internal battle of pushing to excel while allowing ourselves to be content at the moment.

That’s why I’ve written “The Smart, Ambitious Woman’s Manifesto.” If you would like your own copy to print out, save with your PDF file or take a screenshot and use on your phone click here.
