The question that I'm often asked in interviews is how do women gain more power in the world today? My answer is always the same....
Women can own their power in workplace or business by learning how to conquer their fears and understanding who they really are.
Fear is the #1 thing that will hold you back. One of the first things you need to do is to identify the specific fear.
There's no such thing as the fear of the unknown as there's always a content of the fear.
Here's a list of some specific fears: Fear of success Fear of failure Fear of an authority figure Fear of losing a loved one Fear of not feeling smart enough Fear of not having the health/vitality When I am working with clients, I focus on what the specific fear is and then show them how to dissolve it. When you give fear fuel that emotional response is encoding on a cellar level. This is why consciously it can seem impossible to break because your body is chemically addicted.
I have a client who was a high-level female executive and her fear of speaking to an authority figure (someone she perceived had more power over her) was not only creating work anxiety but also manifesting health issues. Each time she thought about the situation and didn't do anything it got worse. I was able to help her breakthrough and confront her fear. As a result, she gained more respect in the company and her health was restored. We will never be without fear but once you understand that being able to breakthrough it is necessary for you to evolve you will see things in a different light. I believe as women we need to get the support of mentors/coaches that can help us to move forward. As I look at the leadership roles that women hold today there's more work to be done on guiding women through the obstacles and fears. Historically, women have been able to rise to the occasion. We must not hold ourselves back but take on the challenges so that we can start creating more balance in the world.
What's really holding you back? What would your life look like if you could not only face your fears but dissolve them once and for all? Are you ready to breakthrough?
