Empowerment

“The older I get, the greater power I seem to have to help the world; I am like a snowball — the further I am rolled the more I gain.”

– Susan B. Anthony

February 15, 1820 -March 13, 1906

In my twenties, I didn’t have very many opinions I was willing to share openly.

In my thirties I shared my opinions with my friends and associates.

In my forties I openly sought women to share our opinions and discuss the the challenges we were facing.

By the time I turned 50, I had been speaking professionally for ten years and imparted my hard earned wisdom to my audiences.

Now that I am in my 60’s it is difficult for me to hold my tongue. I have become so secure in the knowledge I have acquired, I want others to skip some of the laborious steps I had to maneuver through to finally find the peace and comfort in my life.

I speak all over the world to audiences that range from college students to seniors and from young mothers to seasoned entrepreneurs. There always seems to be a common theme: everyone is looking for answers on how to live their live with more purpose and less stress.

When I look back towards the famous icons who lead the way for the rest of us women to comfortably carve our own future.

Know Yourself

“I know what I want, I have a goal, an opinion, I have a religion and love. Let me be myself and then I am satisfied. I know that I’m a woman, a woman with inward strength and plenty of courage.”

— Anne Frank (Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl)
(June 12, 1929 – early March 1945)

I believe we all have an inner strength that will carry us through in times of difficulty. The more we know about ourselves the easier it is to know what we want in life. The major challenge is being aware of what our strengths are.

It wasn’t until I turned forty that I realized what I wanted in life. But the plan didn’t gel until I turned fifty. I have tunnel vision when it comes to achieving my goals. It is an amazing feeling.

When I look at my friends, it’s the one who have a plan that are the happiest. The ones who have passion in their lives that are the most fulfilled. It is impossible to be complacent when you have passion for a cause or know what you want out of life.

Whatever it takes, find something you can be passionate about. Then every day, do at least one thing to move towards your goal.
