How about you?
My guess is you let people walk all over you. You spend your day worried about what everyone else thinks about you fretting around asking yourself “do they like me? Am I good enough? Am I thin enough? Am I pretty enough?”
To hell with it already. I mean seriously girls, is it working?
This is truly one of THEE hardest concepts for woman to absorb and live. I thank god that it comes naturally to me. One of my best friends told me that when she is in tough situations she thinks “what would mamaV do?” and that is one of the biggest compliments I have ever gotten.
Let’s talk a moment about how difficult being a tough chick is in the business world. I am constantly tricking myself into believing that me being a confident, strong female business owner has nothing to do with my day to day business dealings — but I have come to the conclusion that is a total crock. Men are intimidated by me, not only because I am tough and confident, but because I am good looking and I don’t flaunt my sexuality. They just can’t deal. And it is pathetic. The stories I could tell about absolutely ridiculous situations in which the underlying issue was simply; I was the woman with the power and the guy’s ego couldn’t handle it (thus the reason I started my own biz two years ago).
I have one, and only one word of advice to you when it comes to business:
Never, ever let them see you cry.
You do and you’re dead. You will never be taken seriously again (if you were in the first place) and your weakness will always be pinned against you. Truth hurts sometimes.
That’s my lovely rant for the day, I’ve been wanting to talk about this for sometime so hopefully this makes some sense. Remember this my girls;
People are naturally self centered. They think more about themselves then they do about you, so all this imagining you are hated is likely not true. And if it is, so be it.
Enjoy your weekend,
