Being successful is not about perfection, but your everyday habits, so here’s a list of ten things that you can to be a successful woman.
1. Ask for help
Successful women have a good team backing them up. Whether it’s a spouse, a friend or a trusted colleague, successful women are not afraid to rely on others.
2. Choose your battles
We can do anything, but we can’t do everything and a successful woman knows this well. Prioritizing what’s important, and leaving some things aside is key!
3. Believe in yourself
Yes, we all have our moments of doubt, that’s what being human is about. Deep down, though, successful women know that they do their best.
4. Take care of yourself
You know how on an airplane the instructions are to put your own oxygen mask on first, before helping anyone else? Accomplished women know that you can’t help anyone, if you’re not in good shape yourself. Looking after yourself, exercising and eating well is important!
5. Embrace imperfection
Constantly striving for perfection will sap your energy, while accepting imperfections can be liberating. Successful women are more efficient and effective just because they are able to embrace the imperfections that daily life is full of!
6. Celebrate the little things
Life is full of small wins. Take a little time out to notice them and celebrate them. It will give you the energy you need to continue.
7. Don’t compare yourself to others
We each have our own challenges and our own strengths - comparing ourselves to others does no one any favors. Instead, focus on your own strengths and weakness to lead you to success.
8. Don’t cry over spilt milk
We all make mistakes. Successful women accept their mistakes and learn from them.
9. Know how to say ‘No’
Life is busy and full of conflicting activities: saying ‘yes’ to everything is never possible. Being able to say ‘no’ and focusing on a few things can make all the difference for successful women.
10. Share your successes
Successful women are team players. Share your experience and inspire others by mentoring younger women and daughters.
