Standing On The Shoulders….

October 21, 2017

I know some amazing women. Amazing women who didn’t have it all figured out, but pursued their dreams anyway. Everyday women I know personally who didn’t have the time, but knew they couldn’t let their dreams die.  Let me share just a few stories with you.

I have a mother who realized her dreams of modeling and becoming a dentist were second to her dreams of being an amazing mother. She wanted to ensure she was available to my brother and me while my father traveled for work and held demanding positions. I’m so glad she chose motherhood.

I know some amazing women. Amazing women who didn’t have it all figured out, but pursued their dreams anyway. Everyday women I know personally who didn’t have the time, but knew they couldn’t let their dreams die.  Let me share just a few stories with you.

I have a mother who realized her dreams of modeling and becoming a dentist were second to her dreams of being an amazing mother. She wanted to ensure she was available to my brother and me while my father traveled for work and held demanding positions. I’m so glad she chose motherhood.

I have a friend who wanted to work for the FBI, but knew she had to be a police officer first. Now she wasn’t super excited about being a police officer, but she knew it was the first step to what she really wanted so she did it. Almost eleven years later, she’s never looked back.

I have another friend who after a very successful and lucrative corporate career decided she wanted to be a physician. She had a house and bills and even had to go back to undergrad to finish her prerequisites. Not to mention then take the MCAT. She will be graduating from medical school next May.

I have another friend who like my mom, decided being a mother was the most important thing to her so she sacrificed her 6 figure salary and lived with less to spend more time with her kids. She too is an amazing mother I admire.

 

These women didn’t do anything that you can’t decide to do too.

These are successful, everyday, extraordinary women who have schedules like yours and mine and didn’t let that stop them from pursuing their dreams and living a life they love. Don’t you know you owe it to yourself to see this through?

I remind myself daily that I’m standing on the shoulders of women who’ve already laid the groundwork for me to be successful.

I have to do this! I have to give it my all because other women are depending on me!

 

I can’t give up because there will be other women to come behind me.

It’s more than that business you want to start or that company you want to leave. You are creating a legacy and that’s so much bigger than your salary and 5-figure bonus.

If you’re having a hard time finding a woman in your everyday life, let’s pick Oprah as another example.  We all know her story.  Her life circumstances all but dictated she would fail or be mediocre at best. I think we can both agree that she is far from mediocre. We don’t even use her last name, it’s just Oprah and everyone stops and listens. You’re standing on Oprah’s shoulders too. You have a bigger purpose and you owe it to yourself and those who came before you to just do the damn thing.

 

Let your dreams be bigger than your fears.

 

You’re amazing and we’re depending on you.

I inspire busy women to let go of the overwhelm, the overwork, and the underself (yes, I made up that word!). I teach women to stop being so preoccupied with just food restriction and finally stop sacrificing their health.  It's time to stop constantly thinking about food and do something different.
