100 years after women won the right to vote in the U.S., we are still behind much of the world. In the political sphere and elsewhere, we hold ourselves back and dim our light. But why? Is it due to lower levels of encouragement from others? Demanding household obligations? Self-doubt? Waiting for permission? All of these play a role in taking the backseat, along with our judgment of other women. We tend to measure them as brutally as we measure ourselves (which is pretty harsh—am I right?). When we hold ourselves and others to such high standards, it makes it harder to support women in positions of power.
For women to be the future, we need to look at our own lives. Do you treat yourself fairly and have empathy for your mistakes? Do you seek validation from others or give it to yourself? In this episode, we will look at how to stop hindering our progress. Self-doubt is huge for women, but we can work through it by acknowledging its existence and choosing to say “yes” anyway. It is our beliefs and perception, not reality, that holds us back… which means we have the power to change things.
