Empowerment For Women Is A Journey
We don’t wake up one day suddenly ‘empowered.’
It is a process that happens over time, as we gain confidence in the things we do and the decisions we make. And we all want this, whether we admit or not. We want control of our lives and to make our own choices to live in the way we want to.
When I work with women, I always discuss how much freedom they feel they have and how much sway they have in decisions that affect them. For example does she have control over her own money and how is spent? Does she have the freedom to choose her own friends and spend time with them whenever she wants to?
These may seem like crazy questions, but an empowered woman has control over her money and her friend choices. She is not told what to do but may feel like taking advice from others.
But once you follow the 12 characteristics of empowered women outlined above (you may need help to do so), you are on our way to becoming empowered. And what a wonderful, liberating experience that is.
A woman with a voice is, by definition ,a strong woman.’ Melinda Gates
There are many examples of empowered women around the world today. Here are just a few, who I admire. Who are the empowered women in your life?
- Oprah Winfrey. She came from a very poor, disadvantaged background and found her way to Television which changed her world, gave her a voice and enabled her to influence millions around the world, with a particular focus on women’s advancement.
‘Whatever you fear most has not power – it’s your fear that has the power.’ Estee Lauder, founder of a beauty and perfumery line empire admired by women around the globe.
‘I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.’ Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook.
We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored.’
You can work towards becoming Empowered.
You can choose to have control over you, your life, your choices. It’s not just for the lucky, or the rich and famous.
It’s everyday women like you and me, who can live a wonderful and happy life if we go out and get it. But you have to DO something to achieve it. Do it today!
