Welcome to Day 213...
I just read an article spotlighting the new best-selling book The Woman Code, by Sophia Nelson.
At a time when pay inequality and a woman's place in the working world has again come under scrutiny, Ms. Nelson encourages woman to work harder to value and appreciate themselves.
She offers a number of we-know-this-but-need-to-be-reminded-tips:
Teach People How to Treat You
Which means establishing boundaries and speaking up for yourself.
Be Accountable for Yourself
Make room in your busy day and your busy life to take care of you.
Guarding Your Heart
Miss-steps, broken hearts, wrong choices, they're all part of life. But don't give up or give in. Get back up and keep pushing to win.
Don't Let Your Past Define You
Turn off the negative recordings that have been holding space in your brain.
As far as the negative ideas go "...you have to decide, I'm not going to be defined by that. Everything you need to win at life is already inside you. It's already there. Greatness is there, so it doesn't matter how you start. It matters how you finish."
