  • I totally agree! Self awareness and paying attention to feedback is a huge step in being successful. As women, we must be authentic and creative. We have to take risks and "be who we are." One of the best pieces of advice I have received over the years is to not worry about what other people think and spend more time on working on my strengths and to mentor and help others. Also, my mother taught me to always be kind and look for opportunities to help others. The rest will fall in place. Being happy with who we are IS being successful - not making lots of money!

  • I have learned years ago that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes we may not know what that reason is at that particular moment but God always has the light shine at the right moment. Especially when we feel as if we're at our lowest.

  • After years of working at the same job I have found myself without a job. In the beginning I was very lost and wasn't sure what to do with myself. But I have learned that through that experience I now have a new tool under my belt to face any new challenges. When you fail at something and if you have the courage to get up and try again. You will have new knowledge and skill to take with you. Failure isn't a bad thing unless you let it become one.

  • When I hurt my back, I lost my greatest love of a career in Physical Therapy. Now, I am working from home on my computer awaiting hernia surgery. I felt like the proverbial rug had been yanked out from under me, and I had no idea where to go from there. Slowly, I have learned that failing is an opportunity to start anew. What greater strength could I ask for than the chance to start over doing something else I love!
