Ladies as we move into WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH in a few weeks Women’s History Month I have been doing a lot of reading and came across this great article By Sophia A. Nelson a regular contributor to Essence I had to share just a few nuggets from this article:
“1. Successful women like themselves first and foremost. They have a healthy self-image, and self-esteem. They are confident, not cocky. They are able, not arrogant. They know that loving self first as a woman is critical to loving other women.” This one is so on point. When you love and respect yourself you set the tone for others to follow.
“2. Successful women are humble. Don’t miss this. They surround themselves with TRUTH TELLERS, NOT yes men or women. These women surround themselves with people who can advise, guide, pray with, chastise, rebuke, and hold them accountable when they go off course. They welcome truth because they know truth leads to transformation and transformation leads to greatness”. As iron sharpens iron, so one man/woman sharpens another.~ Bible
“5. Successful women sponsor other women and help them achieve their dreams! They use their access, entry and cache to LIFT other women higher! These women honor the 11th commandment. This is something I pride myself on doing for women cross-generationally. I am a connector. I am not afraid to let another sister stand on my shoulders to reach her goals. I hope more of us move in this direction.”
My prayer is that more women will seek to work together and help to build each other, celebrate the success of each other and not tear each other down.
